I'm trying to assign the background color to a simple watchlist script when the the statement is true, but i'm having difficulty. can someone help me correct this?

Thanks

Raghee_Darvis()."Buy Signal" is true
AssignBackGroundColor (if "Buy Signal" is true then color.green else color.black);
 
@solaris You can't use just the plot name, you need the entire reference and plot name... In fact, just try the following all by itself... If the plot name was assigned to a variable then you could just use the variable, but not really needed...

Ruby:
AssignBackGroundColor(if Raghee_Darvis()."Buy Signal" is true then color.green else color.black);

Thanks so much for the information. i really appreciate it. I tried what you mentioned but it still didn't work

Raghee_Darvis()."Buy Signal" is true
AssignBackGroundColor(if Raghee_Darvis() "Buy Signal" is true then color.green else color.black);
 
@solaris Considering how I don't have the Raghee_Darvis Study I can only go by the code you have provided... Like I stated, you don't need the top line, only the AssignBackgroundColor() line...

The Raghee_Darvis is nothing more than a Darvis Box study just re-named. I applied the AssignBackGroundColor line as you suggested but it asking for a plot. I appreciate your help. I'll see if i can find a workaround. Thanks again

Just add the first line which will satisfy the plot requirement...

Ruby:
AddLabel(yes, "");
