I get the array out of range error on this line:

Diff=DataBuffer[i]-DataBuffer[i+1];

Now, I think I now why (At the end of the loop, there is no DataBuffer[i+1]).  I'm just not sure how to avoid it.

This indicator is finding out what the difference is of a candle's range - the previous candle's range.  Not all that useful, but I've got other things in mind.  If this can be solved, then the rest will be easy.

Thanks.

Typical me.  I have a "temporary" fix.  Would like to know if there's an easier way.  Here's what's added:

Added the following global variable:

bool IsInit;

Then set it in OnInit():

   IsInit=true;

Then I added this in the second for loop right at the beginning of it:

      if(IsInit && i>Bars-100)
        {
         IsInit=false;
         break;
        }

line 74

//int limit=rates_total-prev_calculated;
int limit=MathMin(rates_total-1, rates_total-prev_calculated);

Because, on first calculation

preve_calculated = 0

Therefore,

rates_total - preve_calculated = rates_total

DataBuffer[i+1] = DataBuffer[rates_total]

Also you should correct following two lines.

line 11

//#property indicator_buffers 4
#property indicator_buffers 3

line 43

//IndicatorBuffers(3);
IndicatorBuffers(4);

  1. Your look back is one. Do your lookbacks correctly.
  2. Simplify your code. Do your lookbacks correctly.
