C# Help (ToTime)

I apologize if this is a basic question...

I'm trying to make an indicator that displays the value of another indicator at a specific time. So, for example, every day at 9:30 in the morning, the second indicator will display a horizontal line of the value of the first indicator at 9:30. Then for the following day, it will display a new value for the 9:30 value of the first indicator.

I've tried ToTime and GetBar, no luck.

Just call the indicator with barsago, type SMA into the NT help, there should be an example. As this number will change with each new bar, vou have to recalculate, to do so you can use barssincesession or similar methods.

I guess I'm not that great at C#...

Unfortunately Ninja will not allow a variable in the bars ago parameter. (Example: Close[x])

There has to be a way to make something like OHLC, but for an indicator and not a data series; the time could be entered on the indicator...

I've tried totime if statements that try to put the value into a variable, but no cigar.

Maybe this will help.
You will need to define StartTime, EndTime, startBar, etc.

This is basic code that uses a time slot (between two times start and end).
When the bar is between those two times, the line code is executed.
The startBar is a method to allow it to fire once and be reset when it is outside of the time slot.

 
Code
if ((ToTime(Time[0]) >= StartTime) && (ToTime(Time[0]) < EndTime))
	{
	if (startBar == 0 )
	<Do Something Here Like This>
         // DrawVerticalLine("T"+CurrentBar, 0, Color.Red, lineStyle, lineWidth);
         startBar = 1;	
	}
else
	{
	startBar = 0;
	}

Okay...my purpose is that I'm trying to get an indicator that shows one value of another indicator for 24 hours. I'll give this a shot.

I was hoping to somehow take the CurrentDayOHL or anaOHL and modify it for an indicator.
