Is this difficult to change?

I don't know much about programing, can anyone help me to changes to these indicators so that they can plot the time measure numbers(at the right side) upside-down? The 0 should be at the top and the 5 is at the bottom?

You would need to reprogram the indicator so the scale is -5 to 0 instead of 0 to 5. Then -5 will be at bottom, but still not understanding this very well.


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.

Is this difficult to change

Hi Guys,
As you know these two indicator measure the time that takes to plot a new price bar in a range or tick bar chart. The problem is that they work opposite as the volume indicator, When the price bars in the main panel are plotting faster the indicator's bars gets smaller because is taking less time to plot a new price bar.
So what I'm trying to do is modify them so that when it takes more time to plot a new price bar in the main chart the bars in the indicators will be smaller and when it takes less time to plot a new price bar, the bars in the indicators will be bigger.
I have tried to the edit ninja script but no luck.
I'd be grateful if anyone can guide me.

have you tried to normalize the values and then plot them as a percentage? here's one idea:
1. create a new indicator and store the values in a private DataSeries (this would be what is currently being plotted);
2. check each bar to see if the new value makes a higher-high or a lower-low;
3. if no new hh/ll, then divide current-value by high-low and subtract from 100% to identify the offset; plot this value as an oscillator;
4. if you made a new hh/ll, then you'll need to recalibrate all of the previous bars against the new divisor

hope that helps.
