I am not sure why I struggle with this so much, but I can never get it to work. I am trying to add a higher time frame to this code, so that if I am looking at 30min candles, I will be able to plot when the pivot has reached its high/low points for the hourly candle(for example).

input swing_back = 8;
input swing_forward = 2;
input maxbars = 30;
input showlevels = Yes;
def sb = swing_back;
def sf = swing_forward;
def na = Double.NaN;

def lfor = Lowest(low, sf)[-sf];
def lback = Lowest(low, sb)[1];
def swinglow = if low < lfor and low <= lback then 1 else 0;
plot sl = if swinglow then low else na;
def hfor = Highest(high, sf)[-sf];
def hback = Highest(high, sb)[1];
def swinghigh = if high > hfor and high >= hback then 1 else 0;
plot sh = if swinghigh then high else na;


rec lsl = if IsNaN(close[-sf]) then lsl[1] else if swinglow then low else lsl[1];
rec lsh = if IsNaN(close[-sf]) then lsh[1] else if swinghigh then high else lsh[1];

def bn = BarNumber();
rec hcount = if swinghigh then 1 else hcount[1] + 1;
rec lcount = if swinglow then 1 else lcount[1] + 1;

plot lasthigh = if hcount <= maxbars and IsNaN(close[-sf]) then lsh[1] else if hcount > maxbars then na else if hcount < 2 then na else lsh;
plot lastlow = if lcount <= maxbars and IsNaN(close[-sf]) then lsl[1] else if lcount > maxbars then na else if lcount < 2 then na else lsl;



I am adding:
input agg = AggregationPeriod.HOUR;

But that doesnt seem to be working from what I can tell. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated :)
