Time Anchored Cumulative TICK indicator For ThinkOrSwim

Anyone have a Time Anchored Cumulative TICK indicator?
I'd like to be able to quickly see this visually from say, Noon, or after the first Hour.
Any response or help is MUCH appreciated!!

# Cumulative TICK

declare lower;

input TSYMBOL = {default "$TICK", "$TICK/Q", "$TICKA", "$TICKAC", "$TICKAR","$TICKARC","$TICKC", "$TICKC/Q","$TIKI", "$TIKIC", "$TIKND", "$TIKNDC", "$TIKRL", "$TIKSP","$TICKSPC","$TIKUS", "$TIKUSC"};
input openRTH = 0930;
input closeRTH = 1600;
input DisplayLabel = yes;
input AlertOn = yes;

def Active = if secondsFromTime(openRTH) > 0 and
secondsTillTime(closeRTH) >= 0
then 1
else 0;
def Tick = close(Symbol = Tsymbol);
def cumTick = if !Active
then double.nan
else if Active and !Active[1]
then Tick
else if Active
then cumTick[1] + Tick...
I may work on that... that's an interesting idea and I've been watching tick charts of late -- and liking what I see.

How would you go about using it? Just out of curiosity..

EDIT
I found some code here:
https://usethinkscript.com/threads/anchored-vwap-indicator-for-thinkorswim.171/post-82000
that looks like it might work at a glance
Code:
#yakBro intraday anchoredVWAP excluding extended hours volume 2019 declare hide_on_daily;
 def anchorTime = 0930;
 def anchorEnd = 1600;
 input ShowTodayOnly = yes;
 def Today = if GetDay() == GetLastDay() then 1 else 0;
 def postAnchorTime = if SecondsFromTime(anchorTime) >= 0 then 1 else 0;
 def endAchorTime = if SecondsTillTime(anchorEnd) >= 0 then 1 else 0;
 #plot anchorVWAP for intraday def volumeSum = compoundValue(1, if postAnchorTime and endAchorTime then volumeSum[1] + volume else 0, volume);
 def volumeVwapSum = compoundValue(1, if postAnchorTime and endAchorTime then volumeVwapSum[1] + volume * vwap else 0, volume * vwap);
 plot anchorVWAP = if ShowTodayOnly and !Today then Double.NaN else if anchorTime then volumeVwapSum / volumeSum else Double.NaN;
 anchorVWAP.setStyle(Curve.Firm);
 anchorVWAP.setDefaultColor(Color.light_ORANGE);
 anchorVWAP.setlineWeight(2);
since this one excludes hours outside of RTH, it may be possible to change the anchor time and have it anchor to say 11:45 or whatever. The trick with tick charts seems to be that, since there is no guarantee that there will be a bar at the requested time, you need to do something like
Code:
secondsFromTime(1145) >= 0 AND secondsFromTime(1145)[1] < 0

input TSYMBOL = {default "$TICK", "$TICK/Q", "$TICKA", "$TICKAC", "$TICKAR","$TICKARC","$TICKC", "$TICKC/Q","$TIKI", "$TIKIC", "$TIKND", "$TIKNDC", "$TIKRL", "$TIKSP","$TICKSPC","$TIKUS", "$TIKUSC"};
input openRTH = 0930;
input closeRTH = 1600;
input DisplayLabel = yes;
input AlertOn = yes;

def Active = if secondsFromTime(openRTH) > 0 and
secondsTillTime(closeRTH) >= 0
then 1
else 0;
def Tick = close(Symbol = Tsymbol);
def cumTick = if !Active
then double.nan
else if Active and !Active[1]
then Tick
else if Active
then cumTick[1] + Tick
else cumTick[1];
plot cT = cumTick;
ct.SetLineWeight(3);
cT.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.Points);
cT.AssignValueColor(if !isNaN(cT) and isNaN(cT[1])
then color.blue
else if cT > cT[1]
then color.cyan
else color.red);
plot zero = if isNaN(close)
then double.nan
else 0;
zero.SetDefaultColor(color.gray);
AddLabel(DisplayLabel, "TICK = " + Tick,
if TICK < 0
then color.red
else color.cyan);
Alert(AlertOn and ((TICK crosses above 800) or (TICK crosses below 800)), "TICK ALERT", Alert.Bar, Sound.Bell);
