Any Ideas of how I get High Low of a Range set by an Indicator

Can someone point me in the right direction? I have looked everywhere on BM's and also Ninja Boards and can't find what I am looking for. Can someone either point me in the right direction or give me an idea of how I might be able to achieve the following? Any help would be greatly welcome and put my frustrations to bed (where they should be!)

I want to be able to take the High and the Low Price from a range, made up of a number of bars (could be be 2 or up to around 25). The range is determined by 2 indicators crossing each other at the beginning and then crossing the other way at the end so creating the range. (there is the possibility that it re-crosses only 2 bars later.

I have looked at a number of different ways of possibly doing this. (please excuse my naivety but although I have traded for a number of years, my programming journey is underway but there is still an awfully long way to go !! I have looked at different code, searched the NT boards and their reference samples, looked through the NT Help; nosed around everywhere possible in BM's, watching quite a few of the webinars and I have even considered looking down the back of the sofa !

Range, HiLo, BarsPeriod, FirstBarOfSession, High, HighestBar, Minimum, Maximum all seem to have Bar Lookbacks but no indication (pun not intended) that I can use a range to determine the range.

Big Mike quotes that "with NT it is possible to get a rocket into space if you wanted to " so I know it is possible. But could someone just point my Rocket in the right direction .

It would seem that you simply want to trigger on a moving average crossover, count (record the bar numbers) the subsequent bars until the moving averages cross again then simply evaluate the bars.

Thanks Tasker. I will give that a go.

I feel a bit stupid asking as it is probably very obvious to others but I really couldn't get my head around it despite giving it a lot of thought. I guess it is the only way to learn.

Will let you know how I get on .....don't hold your breath though !!

It's not obvious if you've not done it before and sometimes getting a fresh perspective helps.
