hi all, i am a complete beginner in EA. I would like to write a program that reads the Highest High of the last 3 30 mins bar on my chart, and return the highest value on my chart in a dialog box. Can anyone tell me how to do that? Thank you.

1. Next time, use SRC button to post the code

 

2. Copy all the code inside OnStart and paste them inside OnTick, you can do that over and over until you get no error or read Program Running .
