ZigZagUTC problem

Perhaps I'm being a complete dummy. But, I'm having a problem with the ZigZagUTC indicator. I was hoping someone could help.

Print("Bar num of last high: " + ZigZagUTC(3,2,true,Color.Green).lasthibar);

Should give me the bar number of the last high? It continually gives me a result of 0. I'm using version 7 of NT. Is anyone else having this issue?

Turns out. It is reporting 0 when running a backtest. But when running real time, it reports properly.

Would anyone know how to get this to report properly in a backtest? I'm stumped.

I emailed the author of the indicator and he was nice enough to straighten me out. It was a botched syntax job on my part.

Sorry to bother you guys.

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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
