    Hello oscsoft,

    Thanks for your post.

    The help guide section on the ZigZag indicator provides methods to find the High bar, Low bar, the value of the high bar, and the value of the low bar. Please see: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...us/?zigzag.htm

    To find the bars difference between any two swing points you would subtract the bars ago value of the two swings of interest. The key for you will be to determine which swing point is of interest.

    I've created a short example that will print to the output window, the bars ago value for the last two swing points. This should give you enough to get starting in coding what you need for your specific situation. Please note that we do not provide coding services so this example is just to get you started. I've included a screenshot of the ninjascript output showing the last values from the current bar and then notated on the chart the location of the current bar (based on calculate.OnbarClose) and the location of the last two high bars as defined in the output data. The last two swing points are 8 bars ago and 14 bars ago so the difference is 14-8 = 6 bars between swings.
