Paint only when conditions met?


Active member
What is the script so indicators only paint when conditions are met? In other words your screen is "blank" with exception of bars and whatever isnt included in said script.
I assume it's something similar to "plot___." or "addlabel(___)" based on parameters you want

My screen is a mess but each indicator serves a purpose and Im trying to eventually work on something where it's all encompassed into one indicator/alert, where my screen will look normal - bars and volume and maybe SMA & VWAP.

I may have a follow up to this so......
Probably would look something like this....

def cond1 = "fill in blank what condition would be";
def cond2 = "fill in blank what this condition would be";

input paintbars = yes;
AssignPriceColor (if !paintbars then Color.CURRENT else if cond1 then else if cond2 then Color.RED else Color.gray);
