Hi,

I am looking for a way to plot a line in the chart if a specific setup is true.
An easy example would be :

If today is an inside day,
plot a line connecting high.2 to high.1 to high and
plot a line connecting low.2 to low.1 to low.
else
plot nothing.

Of course I can program the function for the condition as a true / false.

But how would one tell Multicharts to plot only on a specific bar on a specific occasion.

Regards

Locust

If NoPlot () doesn't do it got your needs, which I think it won't, use a trendline (TL_New ())
