Congestion Box 4 RangeBars-colors

I need some help here.
The Congestion Box Indicator from jabeztrading I just downloaded does not retain the colors of the boxes (grey, lime and pink) after each new startup. Once I reset the colors in the parameter side of the indicator window, it works fine but just for that trading session. I am using NT 7.0.1000.6.
I would appreciate any and all help sent my way
Thanks guys

Once you get the colors set the way you want them in the parameters window, right click and select Set Default Setting for Congestion Box.

It is possible that the colors have not been properly serialized by the author of the indicator. If you can post the indicator code, someone can check it.

If the indicator is not free code, you have to ask the author to adapt the code in such a way that the boxes retain the selected colors.

That Man from Texas.
WOW! WOW! Problem solved.
You guys are terrific. I tried the "Set default setting for Congestion Box" but did not work ( I am mad 'cause I should have thought of it myself) but the new serialized attachment you sent did the trick and now colors hold at start of NT.

Thanks a million, to you too Fat Tails, for your suggestion. I am glad, however, That Man from Texas solved the problem before I had to tweak around with the code. I am afraid the computer may blow up or something. I am not (yet) the savviest of computer users.

It took me three days to be able to make this post

How can you adapt the indicators to minute charts???? The colors don't print until after the fact, unless this is the way it is supposed to work. Anyone please.

Minute Charts

i have the serialized congestion box on minute charts and you are correct > it only colors after the fact. think that is the only way it could work.

TMFT > Possible Modifications?

Can input criteria be added to limit the number of ticks +/- allowed (for any bar following the measuring bar) beyond the h/l of the measuring bar?

Currently the indicator looks like it follows the Ross definition that allows for any open or close of bars subsequent to the Measuring Bar to be within the H/L of the Measuring Bar - without regard to max ticks +/- extensions beyond the measuring bar H/L.

--------------

Also indicator seems to use/allow CongBox to be defined by the H/L of the first 2 bars. Not sure this is standard Ross definition?

Can the indicator be modified to only use the H/L of the 1st bar (Measuring Bar) to define the H/L of the CongBox? Or have an input for number of bars to use ie., 1 = first bar (Measuring Bar) only, 2 = Measuring Bar + 2d bar (current code/method - i believe), etc.

I have opened the indicator in an editor but do not know what code would have to be modified/changed and where. I could plug in the changes if i knew what and were to do that. I think.

Roger, are you referring to the measuring bar? If so, standard definition is one bar.

Yes - that is what i was referring to. The measuring bar is/should be the first bar and the resulting congestion box h/l should be the h/l of the measuring bar > correct?

However this indicator seems to use the first 2 bars h/l. That is why i am suggestion the above changes.

Do you agree? or am i wrong?

Thanks for your help.
