OHLCPeriodsAgo EasyLanguage/MultiCharts

What am I not understanding with the OHLCPeriodsAgo function in Multicharts.
I have this test indicator:

*******************************************************************
input: barsBack( 1 );

variable: bbOpen( 0 ),
bbHigh( 0 ),
bbLow( 0 ),
bbClose( 0 ),
resolution( 0 ),
label( "" );

resolution = bartype_ex;
OHLCPeriodsAgo( resolution, barsBack, bbOpen, bbHigh, bbLow, bbClose);

plot1( bbHigh, "high");
*******************************************************************

I was thinking this would get the resolution for my chart, and get OHLC for the bar 'barsBack' ago.
On a hourly chart, with the default barsBack=1 setting, I see this:

2011-03-25_1409 - ccfeldt's library

Any help on what I'm doing wrong would be greatly appreciated.

What I'm actually trying to achieve is writing a function OHLCAtTime( 1030 ). Perhaps someone has written a similar function and would care to share some info.

Many thanks, happy trading.

Are you saying High[1] and bbHigh[0] aren't matching, assuming a barsback=1?

I would use print statements to debug vs plots.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Can you specify more clearly what you want?

If you simply want to know the value at 10:30 then just set it to a variable or write it to an array.

Var:
1030O(0),
1030H(0),
1030L(0),
1030C(0);

If Time = 1030 Then Begin
1030O = Open;
1030H = High;
1030L = Low;
1030C = Close;
End;

Thanks shadrock for the suggestion, I'll have a look at it when I'm back home.
Still haven't figured out what I'm doing wrong when using the OHLCPeriodsAgo function, but I might write up an example and post over at the multicharts forum.

Cheers
