    Implementing ToTime on Various PeriodTypes

    Hello,

    I'm having some difficulty implementing the following in a line break chart:

    Code:
     if (ToTime(Time[0]) >= 74500 && ToTime(Time[0]) < 161500){
                 add++;}
                 Plot0.Set(add);
    Whenever I do the above, add increases at various times, appearing to add during the desired time span only sometimes and often outside of the time span as well. When I implement the above code on a normal time-based or a range chart, it works perfectly. Any idea what's happening?

    Thanks for the help!

    Elynt,

    LineBreak is not a time based bar building chart. It will create a new bar when the conditions are met for this bar type and then your counter is added up.

    I would expect the results that you are getting.

      Thanks for the link. Is there a way to enforce time restraints on LB bars at all? For example, is it possible to permit counting a LineBreak bar only if it completes > 7:45am and < 4pm?

        That is exactly what your script example does. It says if the bar time is between these two then process actions below
