Creating a Flag with the bar number

Postby Tartalognion » 10 Oct 2018


I use 1 tick charts and I'd like to create a boolean flag with the bar number as it is unique.

Although I thought it would be easy, I've been struggling for hours with that newbie question (sorry) :shock: :lol:

Either with Bars.FullSymbolData.Current or Bars.CurrentBar.

Any idea?

Thank you

both are fine. You need an additional variable and whenever Bars.CurrentBar is different than what you have stored in your variable, you update the value stored in your variable.
However when you operate on 1 tick charts and only compute your code with incoming ticks, you might not even need such a flag.
