DrawRegion with Swing indicator

Put any two "Swing" indicators on a chart...

Swing(10) & Swing(50)

and you get boxes forming above and below price. The code below fills in the boxes ABOVE price...

DrawRegion("swingAbove", CurrentBar, 0,
Swing(10),
Swing(50),
Color.Empty, Color.Lime, 2);

but I can not figure out the code to fill in the boxes BELOW price...

Thanks

Allan

The Swing indicator has two plot series. The way you wrote your code, you address the first plot series for Swing(10) and Swing(50), as you did not specify it. Instead of Swing(10) and Swing(50) use

-> Swing(10).SwingHigh and Swing(50).SwingHigh to color the region between the upper two plot series
-> Swing(10).SwingLow and Swing(50).SwingLow to color the region between the lower two plot series

To find out, which of the data series you want to address, you need to have a look at the public DataSeries objects defined in the Properties section of the Swing indicator.

This is the code you can use:

 
Code
DrawRegion("swingsAbove", CurrentBar,0, Swing(fastPeriod).SwingHigh, Swing(slowPeriod).SwingHigh, Color.Empty, Color.Lime, 5);
DrawRegion("swingsBelow", CurrentBar,0, Swing(fastPeriod).SwingLow, Swing(slowPeriod).SwingLow, Color.Empty, Color.Red, 5);

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)
