What am I not understanding with the OHLCPeriodsAgo function in Multicharts.
I have this test indicator:

*******************************************************************
input: barsBack( 1 );

variable: bbOpen( 0 ),
bbHigh( 0 ),
bbLow( 0 ),
bbClose( 0 ),
resolution( 0 ),
label( "" );

resolution = bartype_ex;
OHLCPeriodsAgo( resolution, barsBack, bbOpen, bbHigh, bbLow, bbClose);

plot1( bbHigh, "high");
*******************************************************************

I was thinking this would get the resolution for my chart, and get OHLC for the bar 'barsBack' ago.
On a hourly chart, with the default barsBack=1 setting, I see this:

2011-03-25_1409 - ccfeldt's library

Any help on what I'm doing wrong would be greatly appreciated.

What I'm actually trying to achieve is writing a function OHLCAtTime( 1030 ). Perhaps someone has written a similar function and would care to share some info.

Many thanks, happy trading.

Are you saying High[1] and bbHigh[0] aren't matching, assuming a barsback=1?

I would use print statements to debug vs plots.

Can you specify more clearly what you want?

If you simply want to know the value at 10:30 then just set it to a variable or write it to an array.

Var:
1030O(0),
1030H(0),
1030L(0),
1030C(0);

If Time = 1030 Then Begin
1030O = Open;
1030H = High;
1030L = Low;
1030C = Close;
End;

Thanks shadrock for the suggestion, I'll have a look at it when I'm back home.
Still haven't figured out what I'm doing wrong when using the OHLCPeriodsAgo function, but I might write up an example and post over at the multicharts forum.

Cheers
