Default Restrict Time Periods

I am trying to figure out how to restrict a condition to only alert me within a certain time period. I looked in the help, but I did not see any reference to how to do this. My question is how to I qualify a time period in a indicator. An example would be I want to only plot an alert if the time is between 930AM EST and 4PM EST

Hi widgetman, have you seen the reference sample for using a time filter to limit trading? It would also apply to indicators.
