Syntax error: Semicolon expected at 26.1

I don't understand why that error. Syntax error: Semicolon expected at 26.1 (The first line is 26)
Code:
if close() <= PrixStopLost {
AssignBackgroundColor (Color.DARK_RED;
} else {
 AssignBackgroundColor (Color.GREEN);
}
 
@CapitaineFlam88 You need to complete the parentheses after "Color.DARK_RED". You still will have errors since AssignBackgroundColor() isn't being used correctly in that code sample. ThinkScript doesn't allow that function to be used with a script/branch method. Code it inside the parentheses instead -
AssignBackgroundColor(if close <= PrixStopLost then color.dark_red else color.green);
 
@CapitaineFlam88 @Pensar provided the correct code... The code you posted is not an example of the Thinkscript scripting language... It appears that you inadvertently confused another languages syntax as being acceptable in Thinkscript... I've done the same when bouncing between multiple coding languages throughout the day...
