Trend Line plots once

I have an If Then statement with 4 conditions that may occur. When one of the four conditions occur the Then statement plot a vertical trend line with two text statements. The text statements are of the same name. One statement plots the name name of the bar above the high of the bar and one text statement plots the name below the low of the bar on the trend line.The trend line and names plot the first time one of the four conditions is met. However, succeeding times when the condition(s) occur nothing is plotted. I know the conditions are properly identified in the data because the print statement that plots in the debug tab plots the conditions as sought by the code. Thank you in advance for any all help and insight.

RGButzArchInc,

it's pretty hard to give you a helpful hint without knowing your code. If you post the code I am sure someone is willing to take a look at it. You don't have to reveal your actual logic, but can even replace it with something else. Just leave the trendline part and make sure the new logic suffers from the same issues.

Regards,
ABCTG

What are the @'s supposed to do in your code? Also there are a lot of spaces between variable names, so that the code you provided won't verify let alone even draw a single trendline.

Thd @ signs are indicators that the function is a Easy Language function

The code runs on my computer.

I put the spaces in the post to make the code easily readable.

What the code doesn't does not plot any of the trend lines after the first trend line is plotted on the chart.

So why are you converting reserved words into functions or what does @DayOfMonth do different than the reserved word DayOfMonth? Also what is "Ingress Date" supposed to do? That's what I meant with spaces between variable names, not the whitespaces in your code.

Ingress Date = @DayofMonth(date);

The spaces are where the scan of the code did not recognize a dash or an equal sign, for example.

First of all, please forgive me if what I point out is unimportant as I am not totally familiar with this language but I do notice inconsistencies in your code. I have changed the color of the code to highlight them

Vars: Ingress Line(O);
Vars: Ingress-Date (0);
Vars: Ingress-Month(O);
Vars: Ingress-Day of Week(O);
Vars: Lower Llmit(O);

Why is there no dash between "Lower" and Limit"
Vars: Upper-Limit(O);
Vars: Glyph-Lower(-l);
Vars: G1yph=Upper(-I);

{Aasignments}

Ingress Date = @DayofMonth(date);
Ingress-Month = @Month(date);
Ingress-Day_of_Week = @DayofWeek(date);
Lower Limit
Upper=Limit
Low -10;
High + 10;


There don't appear to be any assignments here. Should not these statements be

Lower Limit = Low-10; (or rather : Lower-Limit = Low-10;
Upper-Limit = High + 10;


Ingress falls on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, or Friday}

It seems to me that {} brackets are to wrap comments...but you are missing the left bracket in that previous line...Is that a problem??? I don't know but it is inconsistent

{Ingress falls on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, or Friday}



these are my observations on your code...maybe those observations don't mean much or maybe they are your problem.

Finally why would you use a dash "-" in your variables.....How can one tell the difference between an subtraction and a character....would not an underscore "_" or simply joining the characters into one word be better??

EDIT: I also note other inconsistencies in the naming of your variables....

Vars: Ingress Line(O); ........ has no dash
Vars: G1yph=Upper(-I); ........ Is this a mathematical function or a variable name also is this a typo should it not be "Glyph" not "G1yph" as I see no reference to to G1yph in the statement

Glyph_Upper = Text New(Date, 1600, (high + 5),"CAP "+NumToStr(Year(Date),4) );

Finally you show no consistent naming of your variables or assignments

(Ingress Day of Week = 2 or
Ingress Day of Week 3 or there is no "=" sign How is your variable to get the value 3
Ingress Day-of-Week 4 or Now you add dashes is this a new variable??? again no equal sign
Ingress=Day=of=Week 5)) now "=" signs added except for the assignment of 5

As I said before...I don't know this script language but as a former debugger of VB code this looks weird to me

You can upload the working ELD here, as this will include the functions then, and I will take a look. The code you posted here won't verify let alone even give one trendline. Maybe something just went wrong with posting it, but there are so many issues in it that I doubt anyone is willing to fix those before getting to helping you with your actual problem.

ABCTG
