Thanks.. Never looked in 6.5 section.. but did do a search first. don't know why I didn't find it, but in any case, Thanks again! As it turned out, there was an update on the blog that was referred too in the d/l section and I've attached that latest version it in case anyone was interested. This did import into v7 just fine.
Couple questions? I've modified the org indicator just a bit. (see description in ind for details). Apply it to a 13 tick crude chart and look at the 11:05am thru 11:08am timeframes (CST) of Feb 4.(just for an example) (attached pics illustrate example). My intent is to quickly try and identify periods of higher activity, and possibly use that to catch the momentum of a quick scalp in one direction or another.
I Do NOT trade off this chart. Won't even be looking at the crude bars. Just the histogram in its own chart window to possibly help identify quick reversals, breakouts, or continuations, off key levels of whatever data series trading charts you happen to use. I have no clue as to whether this is even worth the time, prob not with my previous experience with any type of indicator/oscillator, but am going to play and watch it for a bit.
Here's my question.. This indicator uses time as the plotted variable. I'm thinking I would prefer to use it as a constant. How would I convert this to counting the total ticks in a time bar, instead of time in a tick bar? I've tried to use the bars.TickCount, but my programming skills aren't great and I just can't seem to get it to plot anything but the exact same value for every bar in the histogram.
Again, I'd like to count and plot the total ticks (not volume)(total number of trades regardless of volume) of a 10/20/30/60 second bar (just examples, won't know till play) and display that as histogram in same fashion. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I realize this is not necissarily correct.. as This indicator will show the # of ticks in the last x seconds... Whatever the case or how you look at it, it can not be applied (or should I say is worthless) if applied to any time based data series.
