I was trying step through data beyond the current position.

I'm using the following:

def B = fold idx= 3 to 100 with Val while high[idx- 1] < high[idx] and high[idx-2] < high[idx] and high[idx+1]< high[idx] and high[idx+2] < high[idx] and isNaN(B) do high[idx];

I'm receiving "Only constants expected here: idx CL function indexer of high

I would appreciate any assistance with this issue.

You are trying to set dynamic variable as a function parameter but the function approve only constant value as a parameter.

Right, so is there a way to convert a variable value like that to a constant value that will be accepted?

some functions may be rewrited to work with dynamic parameters. but natively thinkscript doesnt allow it.
