Cloud_Ripster adjustment to allow changing of the cloud color

Wes

New member
I would like a add a drop down color menu to adjust the color of the cloud in the cloud ripster study if possible. I have been trying different things without success. I would like to select the color of the cloud like you select the color of a trend line. here is the code of the study it has pink and cyan baked into the code. help would be appreciated. -Wes

input price = close;#hint price: The price used to calculate the crossover. <b>(Default is CLOSE)</b>
input fastLength = 8;#hint fastLength: The number of bars used to calculate the fast moving average. <b>(Default is 3)</b>
input slowLength = 21;#hint slowLength: The number of bars used to calculate the slow moving average. <b>(Default is 8)</b>
input slowAvgType = {default Simple, Exponential, Weighted, Wilders, Hull};#hint slowAvgType: Type of the fast moving average to be used for calculation. <b>(Default is Expontential)</b>
input fastAvgType = {default Simple, Exponential, Weighted, Wilders, Hull};#hint fastAvgType: Type of the fast moving average to be used for calculation. <b>(Default is Exponential)</b>
Input DoArrows = no;#hint DoArrows:Yes shows arrows to define crosses
Input DoPlots = yes;#hint DoPlots: Yes shows MA plots to define crosses. Default is 'YES'
Input DoAlerts = No;#hint DoAlerts:No turns off alerts
Assert( fastLength < slowLength, "fastLength ["+fastLength+"] must be less than slowLength["+slowLength+"]");

def fastAvg;
switch (slowAvgType) {
case Simple:
fastAvg = Average(price, fastLength);
case Exponential:
fastAvg = ExpAverage(price, fastLength);
case Weighted:
fastAvg = wma(price, fastLength);
case Wilders:
fastAvg = WildersAverage(price, fastLength);
case Hull:
fastAvg = HullMovingAvg(price, fastLength);
}

def slowAvg;
switch (fastAvgType) {
case Simple:
slowAvg = Average(price, slowLength);
case Exponential:
slowAvg = ExpAverage(price, slowLength);
case Weighted:
slowAvg = wma(price, slowLength);
case Wilders:
slowAvg = WildersAverage(price, slowLength);
case Hull:
slowAvg = HullMovingAvg(price, slowLength);
}

plot signalXup = If DoArrows Then crosses(fastAvg, slowAvg, CrossingDirection.above) else Double.nan;
signalXup.SetDefaultColor(Color.pink);
signalXup.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.BOOLEAN_ARROW_UP);
signalXup.SetLineWeight(3);

plot signalXdn = If DoArrows Then crosses(fastAvg, slowAvg, CrossingDirection.below) else Double.nan;
signalXdn.SetDefaultColor(Color.Green);
signalXdn.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.BOOLEAN_ARROW_DOWN);
signalXdn.SetLineWeight(3);


Plot fast_Avg = If DoPlots then Fastavg else double.nan;
fast_Avg.SetDefaultColor(Color.pink);
fast_Avg.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.line);
fast_Avg.SetLineWeight(2);
Plot Slo_Avg = If DoPlots then Slowavg else double.nan;
Slo_Avg.SetDefaultColor(Color.cyan);
Slo_Avg.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.line);
Slo_Avg.SetLineWeight(2);
AddCloud(fastAvg, slowAvg, color.cyan, color.pink);
#AddLabel(1, "Fast MA(" + fastLength + ")",color.pink);
#AddLabel(1, "Slow MA(" + slowLength + ")",color.cyan);

#Trigger alerts
#alert(Fastavg, "CHECK IT OUT", Alert.Bar, Sound.Ding);
 
Solution
Use global colors:
Code:
DefineGlobalColor("UpColor", Color.CYAN);
DefineGlobalColor("DnColor", Color.PINK);
AddCloud(fastAvg, slowAvg, GlobalColor("UpColor"), GlobalColor("DnColor"));
Then you can go to the "globals" section and edit them to your heart's content (even transparency!!!)
