N7 ZigZag modification

Hello,
I was looking to modify the standard ZigZag indicator which will keep the same code or parameters such as: Deviation type
Deviation value
Use high and low

and will draw text on how long each zigzag is.

I downloaded a few other indi's such as "PriceActionSwing","ZigZagUTC" and "ZigZag_Sam02" but they all use a "Swing Size from 1-5" which doesn't allow an exact tick or point value like the N7 ZigZag.

thank you!

It is, LOL.

I have a slightly different one in mind as well. In that each day, I want to begin counting from the RTH open, and let that be the INITIAL starting point. And then there after count swings greater than a certain tic size.

Damn, I just realized after re-reading the first post, that it does in fact allow you to input a point value. At least the standard zz shipped with NT.

Great. Just need to get it to print the values and restart it. Woot!

Got it to start OVER each session. But now need it to STOP at the end of the day.
