Show or Hide Clouds



New member
Does anyone know if there is a way to give users the option to selectively hide or reveal clouds generated with the AddCloud function?

The easiest way to do so is to add an input selector which adds as a toggle switch to either display clouds or not. Here is an example code that displays cloud between two dates, run this on a daily aggregation. To turn the cloud off, go into the user interface and set the input selector to the variable "showCloud" to no.

# Displays cloud between two dates 

declare hide_on_intraday;

input showCloud = yes;

input Day1 = 20191103;
input Day2 = 20191208;

plot cond1 = if GetYYYYMMDD() >= Day1 and GetYYYYMMDD() <= Day2 then double.positive_infinity else double.nan;
plot cond2 = if GetYYYYMMDD() <= Day2 and GetYYYYMMDD() >= Day1 then double.negative_infinity else double.nan;

AddCloud(if showCloud then cond1 else Double.NaN, cond2,,;
