    started a topic CrossAbove(High, High, 1)

    CrossAbove(High, High, 1)

    Shouldn't CrossAbove(High, High, 1) tell me if the Current Bar High[0] moves above the previous Bar High[1]?

    The method takes IDataseries, yes, and High = DataSeries so it is supposed to be compatible? 'course I could be reading the help wrong...

    Thanks!

    OK, I did add boolean flags to control action to once per bar, clearing them at the first tick. It has to check intrabar or does no good.

    Oddly, I first tried creating a new DataSeries
    prevHigh.Set(High[1]);
    so that I could later use
    if( CrossAbove(High,prevHigh, 1) )
    but it triggered over and over and over again as well.
    I honestly thought y'all had coded the Cross-over to only trigger at the actual cross-over and not continuously... oh well.

    So I went back to Rising() and semaphores.

    Thanks for the help!
    Cheers

    I'm not sure what you are seeking. Rising() is the method to see if the values are rising or not. If you have CalculateOnBarClose set to false then it will keep evaluating to true as long as it is rising.

    Thank you.
    OK. Rising() triggers -- over and over and over... A step fwd at least!
    I tried CrossAbove because I thought it would trigger once per bar.

    I can code flags and manage it manually if necessary, I was hoping for a simple already existing method....

    Do you have any suggestions?

    No, this will not work since identical series can never cross over itself. Try Rising() for this.
