Watchlist Column Percentage Change after Specific Time

For the Watchlist column I really like the Percentage Change from the Open but I was wondering is it possible be able to have this script modified so I could specify "Percentage Change after a specific time like 11:00 am NY time" for example? Any help is appreciated, Thank you! This is the %change from open script.
#this show percentage change from the open

def openPrice = if SecondsTillTime(930) == 0 then open else openPrice[1];
def pctChangeFromOpen = (close - openPrice) / openPrice;

AddLabel(yes, AsPercent(pctChangeFromOpen), color.white);
AssignBackgroundColor(if pctChangeFromOpen > 0 then color.dark_green else color.dark_RED);
 
Solution
You just have to change 930 to 1100. The only other thing you might have to do is determine what it's supposed to say between 9:30 and 11:00. That code, as it is, if you were to just change the time, would still be showing you the percent change from yesterday at 11:00 until it actually resets at 11:00 today. That might be ok with you, maybe not. Perhaps you want it to just be blank before 11:00? Anyway, let me know what you decide. It's an easy fix that will only take about ten seconds to write.

Hi Joshua, that would be great if you could make that change so that it will show as blank before the start time. Thank you.
 
Code:
def tm = 1100;
def openPrice = if SecondsTillTime(tm) == 0 then open else openPrice[1];
def pctChangeFromOpen = (close - openPrice) / openPrice;
def Blank = secondsFromTime(tm) < 0;
AddLabel(yes, if !Blank then AsPercent(pctChangeFromOpen) else "", color.white);
AssignBackgroundColor(if pctChangeFromOpen > 0 then color.dark_green else color.dark_RED);
