# Customize length of Veritical and horizontal lines

#### MLlalala

##### Member
First i wanna draw a set of lines at with a customizable height, and at fixed time. For example, at 9:30 and 10:30 i wanna draw two vertical lines, but i wanna choose to start at a certain price, let's say i wanna draw these vertical lines at 100 price level, then the height of the lines is maybe \$10. This means after \$10, the line will stop plotting. I need to draw several of this vertical lines

Then i also wanna plot horizontal lines. similarly, i wanna choose what price to start to draw this line. then the length of price lines needs to be amount of certain bars. Let's say i start to draw horizontal line at \$100, and the length is 50 bars. The line will stop plotting after 50 bars. I need to draw several of this horizontal lines

Is there anyway to do this? Greatly appreaciate any help!

UPDATE:
I think i have solved the price line for daily chart, but i am not sure how to do it on intraday, say i wanna set start time to 9:30 and end time to 16:00

input StartDate = 20220104;
input endDate = 20220404;
input space = 100;
input startprice = 1500;

def condition1 = GetYYYYMMDD() > StartDate;
def condition2 = GetYYYYMMDD() < endDate;
def hh = if GetYYYYMMDD() == StartDate then startprice else if condition1 and condition2 then hh else if GetYYYYMMDD() > endDate then Double.NaN else hh;
plot line0 = if GetYYYYMMDD() < StartDate then Double.NaN else hh;
line0.SetPaintingStrategy(12);

plot line1 = line0 + space;
plot line2 = line1 + space;

I have not been able to customize a height for vertical line yet, though

I have not been able to customize a height for vertical line yet, though

Here is an example of customizable vertical lines and an optional cloud in between.

The image below is GME with the lines starting at 0930 and 1030, both @\$120 + a height of \$10.

Ruby:
``````input Begin  = 0930;
input End    = 1030;
def Active   = if SecondsTillTime(End) >= 0 and SecondsFromTime(Begin) >= 0 then 1 else 0;

def x        = CompoundValue(1, if SecondsTillTime(Begin) > 0 and
SecondsTillTime(Begin) <= 0 or
(SecondsTillTime(Begin) < SecondsTillTime(Begin) and
SecondsTillTime(Begin) > 0)
then BarNumber()
else Double.NaN, 1);
def y        = CompoundValue(1, if SecondsTillTime(End) > 0 and
SecondsTillTime(End) <= 0 or
(SecondsTillTime(End) < SecondsTillTime(End) and
SecondsTillTime(End) > 0)
then BarNumber()
else double.nan, 1);
input height   = 10;
input price    = 120;
def xhh         = if BarNumber() == HighestAll(x) then price + height else Double.NaN;
def xll         = if BarNumber() == HighestAll(x) then price else Double.NaN;

AddChart(xhh, xll, 0, 0, ChartType.BAR, color.yellow);

def yhh         = if BarNumber() == HighestAll(y) then price + height else Double.NaN;
def yll         = if BarNumber() == HighestAll(y) then price else Double.NaN;

AddChart(yhh, yll, 0, 0, ChartType.BAR, Color.YELLOW);

input showcloud = yes;
AddCloud(if showcloud and between(barnumber(), highestall(x), highestall(y)) then price+height else double.nan, price, color.yellow, color.yellow);`````` • halcyonguy and MLlalala
This looks great, i amended my price code to start between two time but it doesn't plot, may i know if you could have a look where is wrong?

input Start = 0930;#define the start of tradingsession, suggest no change
input end = 1600;#define the end of tradingsession, suggest no change
input space = 6.25;
input startprice = 300;

def condition1 = gettime() > Start;
def condition2 = Gettime() < end;
def hh = if Gettime() == Start then startprice else if condition1 and condition2 then hh else if Gettime() > end then Double.NaN else hh;
# the logic is plotting price lines only between 0930 and 1600
plot line0 = if Gettime() < Start then Double.NaN else hh;
line0.SetPaintingStrategy(12);

plot line1 = line0 + space;
plot line2 = line1 + space;
plot line3 = line2 + space;

plot line1 = line0 + space;
plot line2 = line1 + space;
plot line3 = line2 + space;

The gettime() function does not recognize your start and end times as input. So the following defines start and end to use with your code.

Ruby:
``````#input Start = 0930;#define the start of tradingsession, suggest no change
#input end = 1600;#define the end of tradingsession, suggest no change

input space = 6.25;
input startprice = 300;
def condition1 = gettime() > Start;
def condition2 = Gettime() < end;
def hh = if Gettime() crosses above Start then startprice
else if condition1 and condition2 then hh else if Gettime() > end then Double.NaN
else hh;

# the logic is plotting price lines only between 0930 and 1600
plot line0 = if Gettime() < Start then Double.NaN else hh;
line0.SetPaintingStrategy(12);

plot line1 = line0 + space;
plot line2 = line1 + space;
plot line3 = line2 + space;``````

If you wanted to use your inputs for starrt and end as is, then you would use the secondsfromtime() and/or secondstilltime() functions in conjunction with them.

Ruby:
``````input Start = 0930;#define the start of tradingsession, suggest no change
input end = 1600;#define the end of tradingsession, suggest no change
input space = 6.25;
input startprice = 190;

def condition1 = secondsFromTime(Start) > 0;
def condition2 = secondsFromTime(end)<0;
def hh = if secondsFromTime(Start)==0 then startprice else if condition1 and condition2 then hh else if secondsfromTime(end)>0 then Double.NaN
else hh;
# the logic is plotting price lines only between 0930 and 1600
plot line0 = if secondsfromTime(start)<0 then Double.NaN else hh;
line0.SetPaintingStrategy(12);

plot line1 = line0 + space;
plot line2 = line1 + space;
plot line3 = line2 + space;``````

Thank you i have tried this and it plots a defined height vertical line at start and end time, but what if i need more lines in between? For example, every 20 minutes or bars i need to plot a line, is there a way to do it?

Since you want a custom vertical line, the TOS built-in addverticalline() function, which could be coded to automatically plot verticallines as you suggest, but these will plot from the top of the chart to the bottom.

To do the custom verticals at intervals, I have made a template to do these. It has 2 additional custome verticals included. Just set the input interval to your desired number of bars to repeat the vertical lines. You will need to add code to the template to create more custom verticals.

Here is an example of what you would add to the bottom of the template for next additional vertical

Ruby:
``````def xhh3         = if BarNumber() == HighestAll(x+interval * 3) then price + height else Double.NaN;
def xll3         = if BarNumber() == HighestAll(x+interval * 3) then price else Double.NaN;

AddChart(xhh3, xll3, 0, 0, ChartType.BAR, color.yellow);``````

Here is the template
Ruby:
``````input Begin  = 0930;

#def Active   = if SecondsTillTime(End) >= 0 and SecondsFromTime(Begin) >= 0 then 1 else 0;

def x        = CompoundValue(1, if SecondsTillTime(Begin) > 0 and
SecondsTillTime(Begin) <= 0 or
(SecondsTillTime(Begin) < SecondsTillTime(Begin) and
SecondsTillTime(Begin) > 0)
then BarNumber()
else Double.NaN, 1);
input height   = 10;
input price    = 120;
def xhh         = if BarNumber() == HighestAll(x) then price + height else Double.NaN;
def xll         = if BarNumber() == HighestAll(x) then price else Double.NaN;

AddChart(xhh, xll, 0, 0, ChartType.BAR, color.yellow);

input interval = 20;
def xhh1         = if BarNumber() == HighestAll(x+interval * 1) then price + height else Double.NaN;
def xll1         = if BarNumber() == HighestAll(x+interval * 1) then price else Double.NaN;

AddChart(xhh1, xll1, 0, 0, ChartType.BAR, color.yellow);

def xhh2         = if BarNumber() == HighestAll(x+interval * 2) then price + height else Double.NaN;
def xll2         = if BarNumber() == HighestAll(x+interval * 2) then price else Double.NaN;

AddChart(xhh2, xll2, 0, 0, ChartType.BAR, color.yellow);``````

thank you for posting that vertical line code, @SleepyZ . i didn't realize it was possible. for some reason i thought there would be a horizontal line component, like it would be a doji style of candle.

set to show on all days You guys are amazing!!! i combined the price and time plot together and show what i really want to plot:

First is price line code:

input Start = 0930;#customizable
input end = 1107;#customizable
input space = 0.78125;
input startprice = 300;

def condition1 = secondsFromTime(Start) > 0;
def condition2 = secondsFromTime(end)<0;
def hh = if secondsFromTime(Start)==0 then startprice else if condition1 and condition2 then hh else if secondsfromTime(end)>0 then Double.NaN
else hh;
# the logic is plotting price lines only between 0930 and 1600
plot line0 = if secondsfromTime(start)<0 then Double.NaN else hh;
line0.SetPaintingStrategy(12);

plot line1 = line0 + space;
plot line2 = line1 + space;
plot line3 = line2 + space;
plot line4 = line3 + space;
plot line5 = line4 + space;
plot line6 = line5 + space;
plot line7 = line6 + space;
plot line8 = line7 + space;

Then timeline code is just the same as halcyonguy in post # 8

The output should look like this There is a final step, i wanna plot circles as attached picture. There are 5 groups of circles, each group consists of 3 concentric circles. This seems a really difficult to do, appreiciate if some help can be provided There is a final step, i wanna plot circles as attached picture. There are 5 groups of circles, each group consists of 3 concentric circles. This seems a really difficult to do, appreiciate if some help can be provided

i've seen a post somewhere about this. i don't understand how drawing a bunch of circles will tell you anything different, from just looking at a bare chart.
drawing a circle , on a stock chart, that has different units on the horizontal and vertical axis, is very difficult.

sometimes i create studies that i don't have a use for, just to see if i can. i started on one that draws ovals.
i will look it up and post what i have. i think i wanted to add some kind of auto scaling to get the shape closer to a circle.

to everyone, i'm sorry for making posts about code, then forgetting to finish them and post the code.

This is called Murray math, and i mannually draw this which is quite time consuming, so i am seeking a way to automate the process

• the ability to customize each line's color and style

Just having trouble coding the proper painting strategy so I can edit as needed. Any help is greatly appreciated! Cheers.

This is perfect, thank you sir.

Another quick question... I'm trying to get the below definition display a boolean point signal when present
but having trouble with the code..

##
def volumestdev = RelativeVolumeStDev(length = Deviation_Length);
def decrease = volume < volume;
Def devdecrease = volumestdev >= 1 and decrease;

##Plot (devdecrease) if devdecrease then SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.booLEAN_POINTS) else double.NaN;##

Let me know if this even makes sense !
Thx boss

I forgot to ask... I re wrote the code last night, not the most efficient way of doing it I'm sure, but it does work.

How can I incorporate only showing for the current day with the below code?

AddVerticalLine (DL930 , "", Color.light_green, curve.POINTS);

I forgot to ask... I re wrote the code last night, not the most efficient way of doing it I'm sure, but it does work.

How can I incorporate only showing for the current day with the below code?

def DL930 = !SecondsFromTime(0930);
AddVerticalLine (DL930 , "", Color.light_green, curve.POINTS);
def DL1030 = !SecondsFromTime(1030);
def DL1130 = !SecondsFromTime(1130);
def DL1230 = !SecondsFromTime(1230);
def DL1330 = !SecondsFromTime(1330);
def DL1430 = !SecondsFromTime(1430);
def DL1530 = !SecondsFromTime(1530);

def DL1000 = !SecondsFromTime(1000);
def DL1100 = !SecondsFromTime(1100);
def DL1200 = !SecondsFromTime(1200);
def DL1300 = !SecondsFromTime(1300);
def DL1400 = !SecondsFromTime(1400);
def DL1500 = !SecondsFromTime(1500);
def DL1600 = !SecondsFromTime(1600);

Put this code

Ruby:
``if getday()!=getlastday() then double.nan else``

as shown in the following 2 examples from your code in all of the others

Ruby:
``````def DL930 = !SecondsFromTime(0930);
AddVerticalLine (if getday()!=getlastday() then double.nan else DL930 , "", Color.light_green, curve.POINTS);
def DL1030 = !SecondsFromTime(1030);
AddVerticalLine (if getday()!=getlastday() then double.nan else DL1030, "", Color.dark_gRAY);``````

This is perfect, thank you sir.

Another quick question... I'm trying to get the below definition display a boolean point signal when present
but having trouble with the code..

##
def volumestdev = RelativeVolumeStDev(length = Deviation_Length);
def decrease = volume < volume;
Def devdecrease = volumestdev >= 1 and decrease;

##Plot (devdecrease) if devdecrease then SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.booLEAN_POINTS) else double.NaN;##

Let me know if this even makes sense !
Thx boss

I wasn't sure where you wanted the point to appear, so I chose to put in the upper price panel. As the points were difficult to see, I added an optional bubble for your use or viewing.

Ruby:
``````declare upper;
input deviation_length = 60;
def volumestdev = RelativeVolumeStDev(length = deviation_length);
def decrease = volume < volume;
plot devdecrease = volumestdev >= 1 and decrease;
devdecrease.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.BOOLEAN_POINTS);
devdecrease.SetLineWeight(5);

input showbubbles = yes;
AddChartBubble(showbubbles and devdecrease, low, "", Color.CYAN, no);``````
