He he, I figured it out down and dirty style. Had to plug in a value for range size, since I am not sure yet how to create a parameter yet or possibly link it to your kase bar code, but it gets the job done for now.

I didn't even know that SC had a built in compiler, I read some documentation before that said you had to download a MS Compiler, I don't know if it was outdated or maybe I just didn't understand what I was reading.

@vegasfoster, SC uses notepad++ and open watcom as compiler.
Anyway is really more difficoult than other platform, c++ is harder, and the coding environment has no facilities like intellisense on NT.
SC tell that you don't need to know much about c++, just the basic, and then look at the examples, ja maybe to make a moving average.
Anyway if there's an issue with some built in study post it on support board and they usually will fix it.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.
Luke.

notepad++ and watcom is the equivalent of the built in stuff for NT. It works and gets the job done (but there is not intelisense). However, if you want to really use it, you should install the visual c++ compiler and run with it. You will get full intelisense, and if you build your solution/projects correctly (it took me a while to get it right), you can have a single solution that contains all of the code in compartmentalized projects. Once again though, you have to do some work and reading to get it all working.

As far as c++ vs c#, what can I say, they are really close in terms of what is actually being used. You really do not need to know much about objects per se, as most everything is encapsulated into the built in sc objects, and you generally do not need to write classes.

I am not sure yet how to create a parameter yet

Inputs are very simple. Look at the Kase code for example:

 
Code
	// create an input ref
	SCInputRef targetRangeTicks = sc.Input[0];

...

	// Inputs		
	targetRangeTicks.Name = "Target range (ticks):";
	targetRangeTicks.SetInt(4);

...

	// use it		
	int t = targetRangeTicks.GetInt();
The input ref is not needed, but make your code easier to read by setting up a readable name to references the actual var in the sc object. You set up the input by simply setting the name and value (you can also set limits). Don't forget to get the value by calling the appropriate routine when using the parameter (i.e. GetInt()). The process is the same for all input types, you just use a different routine to set/get the value based on the type of parameter (i.e. SetFloat()/GetFloat()).
