Invalid statement in scanner study

I am trying to set up a new custom scan and I am getting an error message that states: Invalid statement. I cant figure out what I am doing wrong. I am completely new at this. I have never set up a scan before.

Here is the code I am trying to input:
Software code for the Think-Or-Swim platform
This code is for the Doji pattern:

Def Stoc = StochasticSlow(12, 1);

Def MinVolume = Average(Volume, 90);

Plot DojiPattern = AbsValue(Open - Close) <= (High – Low) * .1
And Close > 25 And Stoc < 20 And MinVolume > 200000;

DojiPattern.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.BOOLEAN_ARROW_UP);
DojiPattern.SetDefaultColor(Color.Light_GRAY);

I am getting the error message for the last two parameters; the DojiPattern lines. The first three lines were accepted.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
