Change from abovebars to belowbars

Can someone from this comunity please help to reverse this scanner from looking from bars above to bars below?

Ruby:
# zclsaboveema1
# priceaboveEMA_xbars_01 - upper
def bn = barnumber();
input avg1_len = 80;
input avg1_type = AverageType.EXPONENTIAL;
def ma1 = MovingAverage(avg1_type, close, avg1_len);
input barsback = 20;
def abovexbars = ( Sum( (close > ma1), barsback ) == barsback );

def xbarscnt = if bn == 1 then 0 else if !abovexbars then 0 else if (abovexbars and !abovexbars[1] ) then 1 else if abovexbars then xbarscnt[1] + 1 else xbarscnt[1];

plot z = xbarscnt;
z.setdefaultcolor(color.dark_gray);

assignbackgroundcolor( if abovexbars then color.yellow else color.current);

I tried putting the code into the scanner but seems line one of the lines is not correct since it does not allow me to apply it to TOS.

If you are placing code in the scanner then as the error message in the following image indicates that you can only have one plot.

So you have to comment out the plots you are not using by putting a '#' sign on those plots.

See if this helps

Code:
# zclsaboveema1
# priceaboveEMA_xbars_01 - upper
def bn = BarNumber();
input avg1_len = 80;
input avg1_type = AverageType.EXPONENTIAL;
def ma1 = MovingAverage(avg1_type, close, avg1_len);
input barsback = 20;
def abovexbars = ( Sum( (close > ma1), barsback ) == barsback );

def xbarscnt = if bn == 1 then 0 else if !abovexbars then 0 else if (abovexbars and !abovexbars[1] ) then 1 else if abovexbars then xbarscnt[1] + 1 else xbarscnt[1];

plot z = xbarscnt;
z.SetDefaultColor(Color.DARK_GRAY);
plot scanabove = z == 1;


#
def belowxbars = ( Sum( (close < ma1), barsback ) == barsback );

def belowxbarscnt = if bn == 1 then 0 else if !belowxbars then 0 else if (belowxbars and !belowxbars[1] ) then 1 else if belowxbars then belowxbarscnt[1] + 1 else belowxbarscnt[1];

plot belowx = belowxbarscnt;
belowx.SetDefaultColor(Color.MAGENTA);
plot scanbelow = belowx == 1;

assignbackgroundcolor( if abovexbars then color.yellow else if belowxbars then color.magenta else color.current);
