Color coding for indicator line help?

If I have a momentum line plotting on Ninja and it is just a single colored line how can I code it to color a particular color for up move and a selected color for down move.

Thanks
Hector

here's what's in guide


Examples

// Initialize method of a custom indicator
protected override void Initialize()
{

// Lines are added to the Lines collection in order
Add(new Line(Color.Gray, 30, "Lower")); // Stored in Lines[0]
Add(new Line(Color.Gray, 70, "Upper")); // Stored in Lines[1]
}



// Dynamically change the upper line's color and thickness based on the indicator value

protected override void OnBarUpdate()

{

if (Value[0] > 70)

Lines[1].Pen = new Pen(Color.Blue, 3);

else

Lines[1].Pen = new Pen(Color.Gray, 1);

}

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)

Gridking, thanks for your coding. I don't have a clue on how this works. When you have time could you explain how I set this up in Ninja.

Thanks
Hector

Since you are Elite member go to this thread and watch the webinar https://futures.io/elite-circle/7980-webinar-introduction-c-ninjascript-programming-feb-23rd-1-00pm-eastern.html

I am not much of a programmer and just starting , but the webinar will show you much of what you need to know once you have the basics down....

As far as the basics first , I think the best way to start out is to go to control panel>Help>Help> Ninjascript>educationalresources>basic programming concepts and just start reading , that is where i started , then start to use the wizard with the aid of help guide and then go into code and start to change things and see, but need to get some idea of basics first then the webinar will fill in the blanks

Hector,

I believe GridKing is showing you how to add two horizontal lines of value 30 or 70.

If I understand your request, you're asking for the rising line to be one color and the falling line to be another color.

if you do a search for PlotColors in futures.io (formerly BMT), you'll find plenty of code examples from the excellent programmers here.

something like this...
 
Code
if(Rising(Value))PlotColors[0][0]=upColor;
if(Falling(Value))PlotColors[0][0]=downColor;
you would need to define upColor/downColor in the variables section.

HTH,

kz
