    Up / Down Indicator Coloring

    I am trying to plot an indicator with acontinuous line that changes toan upcolor when the currentindicator value is above the previousindicator valueand conversely for the down color. So I haveadded two plots and use the plot values in a dataseries toset the two plots as follows:

    Code:
    // Determine Color forPlotLine 
    if (Plot_Value[0] >= Plot_Value[1]) 
    {
     Plot_Line_Up.Set(Plot_Value[0]); 
    } 
    else if (Plot_Value[0] < Plot_Value[1]) 
    {
     Plot_Line_Dn.Set(Plot_Value[0]); 
    }
    However, when I examine the plots on the chart, I see the colors change but there is agap in the line plot where the plot changes color.I see there is aBarColor and BackColor methods for this purpose but anything forplots?
    Is there a straighforward way to accommodate dynamic color modificationstoa line plotstyle without the need to mind the gap?

    This should give you what you want. There may be some intersects where lines overlap. Also, you can use the Rising() and Falling() methods.

    if (Rising(Plot_Value))
    // Do something

    // Determine Color forPlotLine
    if (Plot_Value[0] >= Plot_Value[1])
    {
    Plot_Line_Up.Set(1, Plot_Value[1]);
    Plot_Line_Up.Set(Plot_Value[0]);
    }
    else if (Plot_Value[0] < Plot_Value[1])
    {
    Plot_Line_Dn.Set(1, Plot_Value[1]);
    Plot_Line_Dn.Set(Plot_Value[0]);
    }

      Thanks Ray, that worked well.

      Regarding the overlaps, is there a way to code the plots tocustomize 1) their layering on the chart and 2) the sequence they appear in the indicator dialog box?

        You are welcome.

        We do not have layering support at this time. I believe that plots lists in the Indicator dialog are alphabetically ordered. I will check this and report back if this is not the case.
