how can i call the "v" function to convert in text next to the rigtht price symbol..

the "v" function for the right price works fine and good

i have struggle 4 to 6 days googling and recoded so many times but i got failed..

im so sad n frustrated.... hopefully someone glad to come to solve this text code structure for this..


here is the code..

if(draw_edge_price){
            
               v = zonSNR+PRICESNR+"HL"+BULLISHCount;

               
               ObjectCreate(v,OBJ_ARROW,0,0,0);
               ObjectSet(v,OBJPROP_ARROWCODE,SYMBOL_RIGHTPRICE);
               ObjectSet(v,OBJPROP_TIME1, z);
               ObjectSet(v,OBJPROP_PRICE1, m);
               ObjectSet(v,OBJPROP_COLOR,Red);  //this area seem works good and fine
               
               
               
                
               
               "dd" = zonSNR+PRICESNR+"HL"+SNDCount;   //this area cannot be compiled
               
               ObjectCreate( "dd", OBJ_TEXT,0,0,0);
               ObjectSetText( "dd", "RESISTANT",14, "Verdana", Red);
               ObjectSet( "dd", OBJPROP_TIME1, z);

Also this code you posted....

"dd" = zonSNR+PRICESNR+"HL"+SNDCount;   //this area cannot be compiled

Variable names cannot be surrounded by quotes.

"dd" is a value

dd is a variable

1) You didn't write this code. It's obvious because you don't understand the difference between a variable, a value, and a function.


2) I already provided you the link to the documentation which has examples of how to work with objects.



any idea how to code the right way... still fail to recode back here..


3) If you want people to help you, you need to put in a little effort.

Whether it is an Indicator or an EA or a Script, you lack the basic coding skills that applies to all of them.

So, you should concentrate on first learning the basic coding skills which the book (or other books) provide:

You were given "clues" by @Jack Thomas and he explained to you what was wrong and how to correct it.

Unfortunately you did not understand those "clues" and guidance because you still don't understand the "basics".

If you were trying to learn "klingon" and asked for advice from a "klingon" and he answered you in "klingon" - how would you understand the answer if you still don't know how to communicate in "klingon"?

The same applies here - you first have to learn the "basics" of coding before you will understand any of the advice given to you in the coding!

The book is available online and it is not that expensive. Do yourself a favour and read it (or any other book on the subject). We are giving you guidance, so don't ignore it.

I really hope you will not start with "no common language to communicate".
