First Two Bars of the Day

Hello,

I was wondering if it was possible to create a label that shows the range of the first bar of the day and the range of the second bar of the day. It would also show the percentage of the 2nd bar compared to the 1st bar. So for example, if the range of the 1st bar is one dollar and the range of the 2nd bar is fifty cents it would show a percentage of 50.

this finds the first 2 bars on the current day,
displays labels with the height of those 2 bars,
and the ratio of bar1/bar2

Code:
``````# days_first_2bars_00

#First Two Bars of the Day

def bn = barnumber();

input start = 0930;
input end = 1600;
def daytime = if secondsfromTime(start) >=...``````
