Working with bools

I know that there is probably an easy way to do this, but I just can't figure it out.

Is there a way to use one true bool to make another bool true and the first one false? This is not working, bool2 does not become true, and bool1 remains true. The point is that bool2 needs to be true the second time condition1 is true, but I don't know how to make this code count. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks... Example:

protected override void OnBarUpdate(){

if (condition1) // uparrow and short
bool1 = true; // this works

if (bool1 && condition1) // bool1 true, uparrow and short
bool1 = false; // this does not work
bool2 = true; // this does not work

if(condition2)
bool1 = false;
bool2 = false;
}

}

how about working with a BoolSeries so you can check via an index if the bool1 is true now and your # of bars back?

Thanks for the reply, but I tried a bool series and I could not get that to work. I also tried counting with an int and that hasn't worked. Still trying to figure a way.

Update, I found a way using bar index.

Thanks
