Creating a Rectangle with an anchor

Hey all,
I'm trying to create a rectangle that shows the current bid/ask while anchoring the current bid low and current ask high for that candle creation.

So far, I have:
 
Code

double maxBidAsk = GetCurrentBid();
maxBidAsk = Math.Max(GetCurrentAsk(),maxBidAsk);
if (GetCurrentAsk() > maxBidAsk) maxBidAsk = GetCurrentAsk();
double minBidAsk = GetCurrentAsk();
minBidAsk = Math.Min(GetCurrentBid(),minBidAsk);
if (GetCurrentBid() < minBidAsk) minBidAsk = GetCurrentBid();
DrawRectangle("RecL"+CurrentBar,1,GetCurrentBid(),0,maxBidAsk,Color.Black,Color.Blue,5);
 

I also tried

 
Code
DrawRectangle("RecL"+CurrentBar,1,minBidAsk,0,maxBidAsk,Color.Black,Color.Blue,5);
 
So far, I only get the small rectangle moving up an down with the CurrentBid or CurrentAsk.

I appreciate your help.
Kirk

If you are still having this problem, can you post a screen shot?

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)

not sure exactly what your requirements are as it is not clear, but place the maxmin bid/ask declaration in the variable. you are resetting the values everytime making them of little use for the Math.Max Math.Min functins.


 
Code
#region variables
double maxbidask = 0;
double minbidask = double.MaxValue;
end region

onbarupdate

 
Code
maxbidask = Math.Max(maxbidask,GetCurrentAsk());
minbidask = Math.Min(minbidask,GetCurrentBid());

base.DrawRectangle("tag",false,1,maxbidask,0,minbidask,Color.Transparent,Color.Blue,3);

Well,

Here's the latest - not quite working so I'm not sure what to add to make this show the current bar's highest Ask and lowestBid.

any thoughts?
