If you have defined a DateTime object myDateTime you can check whether its date falls on today via

 
Code
                            
if ( myDateTime.Date == DateTime.Now.Date

You need to assign a value to MyDateTime before you can compare it I believe.

In variables:

private DateTime myDateTime;

In Init or OnStartUp:

myDateTime = (something to make it today);

In OnBarUpdate:

if(myDateTime.Date == DateTime.Now.Date) DoSomething;
if(myDateTime.Date != DateTime.Now.Date) DoSomethingElse;

Just a guess and I haven't tried it but there you go...

and of course:

if(historical) return;

is a popular choice and will work if you are using daily bars.

sorry to bother you. those fields are new to me

I tried if(Historical) on daily charts and it would set my plot to N/A to the whole database, is that right ? what purpose ?

about the myDateTime, what to write in Initialize chapter ? I guess I did not understand the concept of Objects yet

thanks for your help
