Label sometimes disappears


Hey everyone - I searched a few other label error posts but didn't find what I'm looking for. I'm getting the following error from trying to attach a label using the following label:

AddLabel(ShowSellVol6, "6Bar Sell %: " + SellVol6, (if SellVol6 > 51 then Color.RED else if SellVol6 < 49 then Color.GREEN else Color.ORANGE));

Expected double at 121:1
No such variable: ShowSellVol6 at 121:10
Expected double at 121:1
No such variable: ShowSellVol6 at 121:10

If I delete the "Show" from "ShowSellVol6" so it reads as:
AddLabel(SellVol6, "6Bar Sell %: " + SellVol6, (if SellVol6 > 51 then Color.RED else if SellVol6 < 49 then Color.GREEN else Color.ORANGE));

Then the problem is I see the label about 75% of the time, but other times its missing and I can't discern for what reason.

Appreciate any help here as usual!
Without knowing what the definition and calculation of with ShowSellVol6 or SellVol6 are, all we can tell you is that the first positional argument to the AddLabel() function is the one that decides whether to show it or not. If the variable is not true or yes the label will not be displayed. So whenever your variable is either false (doesn't exist, etc...) the label won't show up. Put yes in the place of the variable and it will always show up. It's in the docs here:

Without the definitions of the variables, there isn't anything more I can help you with.

Happy Trading,
