TEMA indicator plots horizontal line only


I am trying to build the TEMA indicator for Multicharts.
1) created a function called TEMA


XMA = XAverage( Price, Length ) ;
XMA2 = XAverage( XMA, Length ) ;
XMA3 = XAverage( XMA2, Length ) ;
TEMA = 3 * XMA - 3 * XMA2 + XMA3 ;
2) created an indicator called TEMA

	Price( Close ),
	Length( 14 );

variables:  var0( 0 ) ;

var0 = TEMA( Price, Length ) ;
Plot1( var0, "TEMA" ) ;
Now I attach the indicator onto a chart but only horizontal line appears instead of a moving average type line. What do I do wrong?
This suppose to be an "easy language"

Thanks for help

the first input in your function is the length, but when you call the function in the indicator you are using Price as the first parameter. Change the order in either the function or the indicator should give you the desired result.
