Help with Global Variables

Postby kagein » 04 Jun 2019

When i try the code below i get a value of 1500 instead of the close[1] + open[1], where am i going wrong?

Code: Select all

vars: irtnval(0); iRtnVal = GVSetDouble( 1500, Close[1] + Open[1] ); print(irtnval);

kagein,

the return value of GVSetDouble is the element location and not the value you stored.

kagein,

if GVSetDouble returns the element location the value was stored. Otherwise it would return -1. To retrieve a value at an specific location you can use the corresponding GVGet... functions.

You might find the Global Variable documentation and examples helpful (it should be available here in the forum).
