ADX color line change in DM Indicator

I have had enough! Can any please help? I know this is a "simple" programming feat, but I am not a programmer and after spending countless hours trying to figure this out ... I donít want to be one! :-)

I want to have the ADX line in the DM indicator to be able to change colors under this condition: ADX (12, True) < (ADX 85, True)) 1 bar ago. if true color ADX line Red.

or a patch method would be to use only the ADX indicator with the above settings.

I am using NT 6.5 & 7.0

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Sounds like you want 2 ADXs plotted and and when the faster one crosses the slower one you want the faster of the 2 ADXs to change color. Is that correct?

Yeah really Cory. Not sure what he's wanting but this is what I did. Hopefully it's what he wants and it will be the Holy Grail he's looking for.

This is the nt6.5 version.

In case anyone was wondering, it imports & works in NT7, too, but I don't see how it aids in trading.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

ADX color line change in DM Indicator

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your replies!

I agree this doesnít make much sense!! LOL

I guess the easiest way for me to explain what I am looking for is if you look at the attachment from the first post above. The ADX Line is the Red and White line. I want to be able to plot that in colors .... maybe it is "sloped". But when ever ADX is changing direction to I want it to change color. The settings I gave is what was given to me on how he did it. He said it was a true or false statement: ADX 12 < 85 1 bar ago . If statement is true turn red.

I hope this clarifies!

Sorry for the confusion!

Thanks!

Ok let's try this. if the ADX is rising you want it to be one color and if the ADX is falling you want it another color?
