Study/Price Overlay - Divergence

Hello, I have been trying to make a divergence study in SC. The idea is to use the zig zag study in the main price and in whatever study you want to use, so by trying to compare the HH HL LL LH labels in a certain range you can sort out what type of diverge just happened.
So i need to modify the zig zag study in order to get the timeframe of any label to be able to do the comparison, i added some logic and an array so i got i done but im having a lot of trouble trying to get data from
functions, im a little lost with this ones, i dont know wich one i need because i could not make them go.

Later i realized that i need the Study/Price Overlay study to compare both studies timeframes. So i have to point this functions to a Study/Price Overlay over each zig zag studies and im just confused on how to set the functions and how to set the study/price overlay.

It would be great to talk to someone with more experience over skype or any chat.

Thanks in advance!

Did you make progress on Divergence

I am looking for a divergence study in Sierra and found your question.
I have used Divergence in Ensign Charting (info here Ensign Software - Studies: Descriptions and Formula)
It would be useful to have this study in Sierra.
