Using upper / lower graph data

Hello,
I hope I named this thread correctly. I noticed there are names to the graph areas, price, volume, lower, lower, lower.
I want to reference the lower data in the price graph scripts.
I am having a terrible time finding instructive material dealing with this.

I have seen declare lower and script reserved words. But in a price graph script can I reference lower data?
I tried using lower.MACD(12,9,26) but the data is too small. I want to use the data from different graph levels. Is this possible?
Thanks in advance.

Referencing other studies

I'm not sure that I understood your question, within Thinkorswim, I don't think it is possible to reference plotted chart data (charts are refreshed every time a new bar is plotted).

However, if you want to reference the specific instance of the MACD study, then you can simply write the following:
 
Code
def MD = MACD(12,9,26);
We note here that the variable MD will contain the information you require for each bar.

if instead, you only wanted the default values of the same study, then you may use the REFERENCE keyword:
 
Code
def MD = reference MACD;
Where the default values are as follows:
 
Code
input fastLength = 12;
input slowLength = 26;
input MACDLength = 9;
input averageType = AverageType.EXPONENTIAL;

I have an imported study that plots in the lower sub graph. I wanted to reference that data but it is not in the study references. It looks like I have to pull the code into my main development study to get to the data.
I tried your macd def. I am curious as to how the data shows up so large in the bottom subgraph. I can not find any settings for the vertical.
