Export Custom Study Value

RogerC

New member
I created a custom study that I use on a chart. So the custom study is dependent on the time frame of that chart - consider the study with the dynamics of a moving average, which would have a bit different result if looking at a Daily time frame or a 4hr time frame, or a 1hr time frame.

I'd like to import the value for my custom study for an entire watchlist, based on the different time frames. Daily, 4hr, 2hr. Unfortunately, when I try to pull up the custom study value in a watchlist, it does't display. I'm happy to export the watchlist, if I can get the value of the custom study into a watchlist for different time frames. I'm thinking I might need to make the custom function more robust so there are three functions each with a specific time frame.
Problem A: I don't know how to make a custom study with a specific time frame. Any help here would be great.
Problem B: Once problem A is created, can I display it into a watchlist? Again help would be great.

Caveat and disclosure: My programmings skills are B-level, and still trying to learn TOScripting.
Thanks in advance for any help.

See this post:

and realize that you can use the same "order" with a value from your desired study to get values from your own study at any time frame interval you want.

There are other threads about exporting watchlists, but I don't think that will get you the values you want... if I read your post correctly. You'll have to export one symbol at a time, and unless you code like this:
Code:
def rsi_1 = RSI(price=Close(AggregationPeriod.MIN));
def rsi_60 = RSI(price=Close(AggregationPeriod.HOUR));
etc...
note code is hand typed here and may not actually run, but may be close

see: https://tlc.thinkorswim.com/center/reference/thinkScript/Constants/AggregationPeriod
then you can run the script on your lowest timeframe and it will export (if you've put the values of them in the "order" all of the values for your timeframes at once.

Maybe this helps, I need more coffee
