I'm new at this so please be patient. I'm trying to make a script for the scan. I want to show what hour the high so far has been. the idea is to see if the high is at the beginning or at a different hour. It would be nice if the script return what our or even just a number like say 10 am = 1 and 11 am 2 ... I am trying to test a theory but doing it in my head is kind of slow. I need thinkscript to process this faster.

This one was kinda fun to throw together.

Code:
declare upper;

input tz_adjust = -3;
def t = getTime() % (360 * 1 * 10000);

def h = if secondsFromTime(0930) == 0 then 9 + tz_adjust else if t == 0 then h[1] + 1 else h[1];

def high_of_day = if secondsFromTime(0930) == 0 then high else if high > high_of_day[1] then high else high_of_day[1];

def time_of_hod = if high_of_day != high_of_day[1] then h else time_of_hod[1];

AddLabel(yes, "  High occurred in the " + time_of_hod + " o'clock hour.   ", color.black);

Note that I am in the pacific time zone, so my tz_adjust (to get local time from East Coast time) is -3. If you're on the eastern seaboard, just set it to 0. If you're in Hawaii, good on ya and get some more sleep rather...
