Show Today Only

With the generous help of @Hulk and @ABCTG, I managed to get my indicator coded like I wanted to. I would like to add a statement that when true, would only show the levels for today, the current day. I know I need to add something like If Today_Only = true, then show today else show everyday. What do I need to modify in the code to get that to work? Thanks.

Something like this:

Under inputs add the following 2 inputs:

Then use these inputs as follows:

If (ShowHistorical OR D >= Currentdate - HistoryCutoff) then
... // all of your code goes here
basically, if you set ShowHistory to true, your indicator code will execute on all days and if you set it to false, it will only execute for the number of days specified by the HistoryCutoff input.
