Hi guys. what code should i use when i only need to plot 1 indicator out of 2?

For example...
if line n1> of line n2 only draws line n1, vice versa only draws line 2.

There are lots of ways to do it, depending on what you're doing or how complicated it is.

You could do it with a single plot, in-line.

plot x = if n1 > n2 then n1 else n2;

Or in more complicated situations, you would toggle them out with Double.NaN;

#some code somewhere
input n1 = 1;
input n2 = 2;
#plot specific variables
def pN1;
def pN2;
#toggle
if n1 > n2 {
pn1 = n1;
pn2 = Double.NaN;
} else {
pn1 = Double.NaN;
pn2 = n2;
}
#plots
plot PlotN1 = pN1;
plot PlotN2 = pN2;

In can also depend on the plot type if the toggle switches very rapidly, because certain plot types require two points to make a line. Others can appear in singular form over a single bar, so keep that in mind.
