first post

i have no problem writing in perl or java. thinkscript is more of a challenge than i expected.

i would like to use time and sales data in an indicator. does tos make the time and sales data accessible via a variable/array? if so, what is the name? any examples laying around?

I checked w/ tos support. the time and sales data is in a different widget and the data is not available in the charting window for use by indicators. that sucks.

i'll try to open a feature request to add a few public methods to the TS widget that are accessible via the chart widget.

in the mean time i guess i'm stuck trying to approximate the TS data via volume aggregation on a per second basis.
