Hey there, I am new to thinkscript and would greatly appreciate any help. I would like to add a custom color to this input's drop down menu:

The custom color I would like to use is:

this is the study's script:

Code:
input Period = aggregationPeriod.HOUR;
input AvgType = averageType.EXPONENTIAL;
input FastLength = 72;
input SlowLength = 89;
input priceclose = close;
input CloudColorBull = {"MAGENTA", "CYAN", "PINK", "LIGHT_GRAY", "ORANGE", "RED", "GREEN", default "GRAY", "WHITE"};
input CloudColorBear = {"MAGENTA", "CYAN", "PINK", "LIGHT_GRAY", "ORANGE","RED", "GREEN",default "GRAY", "WHITE"};

plot fastAVG = MovingAverage(AvgType, close(period = Period), FastLength);
plot slowAVG = MovingAverage(AvgType,close(period = Period), SlowLength);
fastAVG.setdefaultcolor(color.white);
fastAVG.setStyle(curve.SHORT_DASH);
slowAVG.setdefaultcolor(color.white);
slowAVG.setStyle(curve.SHORT_DASH);
AddCloud(fastAVG,slowAVG,GetColor(CloudColorBull),GetColor(CloudColorBear));
 
here you go... you can manually set the color code to the the RGB code numbers you want
just change CreateColor(205,0, 0) and CreateColor(29,129, 163) to your wanted numbers


Code:
input Period = aggregationPeriod.HOUR;
input AvgType = averageType.EXPONENTIAL;
input FastLength = 72;
input SlowLength = 89;
input priceclose = close;
plot fastAVG = MovingAverage(AvgType, close(period = Period), FastLength);
plot slowAVG = MovingAverage(AvgType,close(period = Period), SlowLength);
fastAVG.setdefaultcolor(color.white);
fastAVG.setStyle(curve.SHORT_DASH);
slowAVG.setdefaultcolor(color.white);
slowAVG.setStyle(curve.SHORT_DASH);
AddCloud(fastAVG,slowAVG,CreateColor(205,0, 0),CreateColor(29,129, 163));

Awesome! Thank you very much
 
Can anyone tell me how to create a custom color for this code below? The top AddCloud code is defaulted to GlobalColor I am attempting to change this to Color.red or any color I would prefer as I am attempting to do at the bottom but it keeps coming back with an error.

Code:
AddCloud(if rthCheck and showAggregation4 then fvgBear4MH else double.nan, if rthCheck and showAggregation4 then fvgBear4ML else double.nan, GlobalColor("Aggregation 4"));

AddCloud(if rthCheck and showAggregation4 then fvgBull4MH else double.nan, if rthCheck and showAggregation4 then fvgBull4ML else double.nan,  color.dark_green,("Aggregation 4"));

Your bottom one did not have globalcolor("Aggregation 4") with the ("Aggregation 4"). You can define more globalcolors, if you want more flexibility.

Yes, the orginal code is written using fixed global color. I am trying to change this to have a custom color so replacing the global color say... the top code is for bearish I would like that to be color.red and the bottom showing bullish change the globalcolor to color.green.

As I said, create another define global color to do that similar to the existing one. For example, DefineGlobalColor("Another Color", Color.GREEN);
