Hi Trembling Hand,

Thanks for this thread as well as the other ACSIL thread. I am trying to get a value out of the zig zag study (VolumeDividedByLengthInTicks) but it is displayed as a text label and is not an accessible subgraph. Can you propose a way to modify the ZZ study so that I can access to this data as a subgraph? I would like to be able to use that number in an alert calculation.

Thank you!

Sorry about the slow reply. If you look at the Studies7.cpp file in C:\SierraChart\ACS_Source On line 1187 in the CreateZigZagLineLabel function you can see that the calculation is,
 
Code
int64_t VolumeDividedByLengthInTicks = static_cast <int64_t>(AccumulatedVolume[ZigZagIndex] / (ZigzagLineLength / sc.TickSize));
You can copy the ZigZag function, rename it as something unique and add a subgraph to hold and display that calculation.

Thank you so much! Any chance you can help me determine the line numbers I should copy and paste to recreate the ZigZag function? I was looking at the file last night and its not super clear to me. If you don't have time, I understand. I can probably experiment for myself and figure it out.
