the swing trend might be a very good "filter". I tried to implement a paint bar study instead of the lines on the bottom of the chart. needless to say I didn't get very far. any help would be very much appreciated.

You just have to add the following bold lines to the PriceActionSwingTrend indicator (starts in line 77):
 
Code
            
if (showTrend)
{
  int trend = Convert.ToInt32(swingTrend[0]);
  switch (trend)
  {
  case -1:
    BarColor = Color.Red;
    DownTrend.Set(1);
    break;
  case 1:
    BarColor = Color.Green;
    UpTrend.Set(1);
    break;
  default:
    BarColor = Color.Gray;
    NoWhere.Set(1);
    break;
   }
 }

Import failed


Any idea what I've done wrong? Import failed so I extracted the files to the proper folder, then tried to compile, and got this >> 2011-03-22_1125 - GregHohman's library

I think so, but I only have version 7.0.1000.4 and Windows 7 with SP 1, so I can't test it with the previous version.

You have to delete the PriceActionSwingRelation indicator. I renamed it to PriceActionSwingTrend.

Maybe you can increase the paint bar study, if you change the bar color when a trend ends. Because often the end of a trend will result in the opposite trend. You skip the no trend part.

 
Code
// add a variable "int oldTrend" to the variable region

            if (showTrend)
            {
                int trend = Convert.ToInt32(swingTrend[0]);
                switch (trend)
                {
                    case -1:
                        DownTrend.Set(1);
                        oldTrend = -1;
                        BarColor = Color.Red;
                        break;
                    case 1:
                        BarColor = Color.Green;
                        oldTrend = 1;
                        UpTrend.Set(1);
                        break;
                    default:
                        NoWhere.Set(1);
                        if (oldTrend == 1)
                            BarColor = Color.Red;
                        else if (oldTrend == -1)
                            BarColor = Color.Green;
                        break;
                }

Can you post your version with the colored bars, as I like the way you have colored them.

Hi and thx.dorschden

I have an older version of your price swing indicator.
I'm using it on ZigZag but only for the FibRetracement.
You say you have taken ZigZag out of latest version of post#167

Q1: am I correct that the latest version will display the same FibRetracement lines
but just also includes all the ABC information as one display ?

Q1a: if so then I can transparent out the displays I don't want to leave just the
FibRetracement which will be the same FibRetracement as per ZigZag of older version?


Many...many..................................................many thx
