- It's hard to make a label or text "look nice" and clear because it's not possible to use a different font for titles, etc.
- Because the default Pinescript font is not a monospaced font, (in Pinescript different characters have different widths)
this makes it really difficult to align things in a label on different rows
and causes everything to be "all over the place" and look messy
With the workaround in this script, you can "translate" the text string that you want to put in a label into a text with either upper case, bold and/or italic characters,
allowing for more control over the layout of the label text, by adding differently styled titles, control over spacing for columns, etc...
The characters provided in this script are an example of a monospaced font, but can easily be replaced by copy-pasting in other characters in the appropriate section
and the script will then use the new characters as replacements.
This script is to show the possibilities and principles of the functions.
The principles of this framework can be used to build your own go-to "text style conversion" functions, for styles that you use a lot, for example for titles.
A big shoutout to @DonovanWall, for the awesome character replacement idea that I built upon!!!
A shoutout also to the PineCoders community, who provide an infinite source of knowlegde and inspiration!!
