Get value of a particular candle

im trying to find the value of the last green candle as its on the top bar of the chart.

For example: Lets say i have defined 'lastgreencandle' then how do I find the close of the 'lastgreencandle'?
 
Here is an example of how I got the closing price of today's trading day to display as a label on my chart.

Maybe this code can help you work on yours.

Code:
input aggregationPeriod = AggregationPeriod.DAY;
def close = close(period = aggregationPeriod);
AddLabel(yes, Concat("Day close = ", close), color.orange);

Another one: displaying the closing price of bullish engulfing candles as chart bubbles.

Code:
input length = 20;
input trendSetup = 3;

def BodyMax = Max(open, close);
def BodyMin = Min(open, close);
def IsEngulfing = BodyMax > BodyMax[1] and
    BodyMin < BodyMin[1];
def IsWhite = open < close;
def IsBlack = open > close;
def IsPrevDoji = IsDoji(length)[1];

def Bullish = IsDescending(close, trendSetup)[1] and
    (IsBlack[1] or IsPrevDoji) and
    IsWhite and
    IsEngulfing;

AddChartBubble(Bullish, low, "Close = @ " + Round(close), Color.light_green, no);

Hope that helps.
 
Hello,

I'm an accomplished programmer, but new to Thinkscript.

I'm trying to figure out how to get the actual value of the most recent EMA crossover within the last X bars. All examples that I've seen show how to tell if there was a crossover - but I want the actual value of the EMA at that crossover point (or maybe even an offset in candles that the crossover happened so that I can fetch the value myself?)

Any help would be appreciated!
 
@jondecker76 Price Value at point of EMA Crossover

Code:
declare lower;
input fast = 20;
input slow = 200;
input price = CLOSE;
def null = double.NaN;
def S = expAverage(price, slow);
def F = expAverage(price, fast);
def CROSS = if F crosses S then S  else  CROSS[1];
plot scan =  CROSS;
AddLabel (yes, "Cross " +  (CROSS)  );

This is awesome. One quick follow-up question:

How could I create a label to show: Most recent EMA cross was X bars ago? (I can edit the text later)

The label helps me de-clutter my chart, so any help would be great!
