Jons MTZ debacle

Good day to everybody!

This was originally shElderImpulse strategy (The Elder Impulse System) from the NT 6.5 free download section. I am trying to make a framework for MultiTimeFrame and MultipleTimeZone and backround colors to use with various indicators.

Renamed to aMTF_MTZones_colors2. The strategy will compile correctly, but the backround colors (and I am guessing those higher time frame calculations as well?) dont display except for the the inputs assigned to the first timezone. I tried using '0' for start and end of the first timezone and the strategy shows color bands for all 24 hours.

This shows how the original code was:::

#region Variables
        // Wizard generated variables
int _tradeTimeBegin         0// Default setting for TradeTimeBegin1
private int _tradeTimeEnd         0// Default setting for TradeTimeEnd1
// User defined variables (add any user defined variables below)

This shows how I modified the code:::

#region Variables
        // Wizard generated variables
int _tradeTimeBegin1         0230// Default setting for TradeTimeBegin1
private int _tradeTimeEnd1         0530// Default setting for TradeTimeEnd1
private int _tradeTimeBegin2         0950// Default setting for TradeTimeBegin1
private int _tradeTimeEnd2         1110// Default setting for TradeTimeEnd1
private int _tradeTimeBegin3         1310// Default setting for TradeTimeBegin1
private int _tradeTimeEnd3         1530// Default setting for TradeTimeEnd1
// User defined variables (add any user defined variables below)

I changed the variables to have multiple time zones for trades, and also made other changes in the code at the ""Properties"" and ""private bool TimeToTrade"" to add additional lines for the timezones I added. I cant see where else in the code changes need to be made to activate the other time zones.

The code only uses EMA and MACD so it imports without any additional indies.

I would appreciate feedback and assist to resolve the issue. I hope this will be useful for others in their code as well.

I didn't open the source, just a remark:
- Integer variables should be used to manipulate integer values.
- DateTime type has been created for manipulate date and time, it's much more easy/reliable to use this !!!
