Hi I'm learning to code custom indicators, I am trying to do one for Ichimoku where the indicator must meet a checklist of 4 items:

1) TK Cross

2) Price relative to cloud

3) Favourable cloud (bullish/bearish)

4) Lag span above cloud

I have the following code with no errors however critical Array out of Range errors upon running:

#property indicator_chart_window
#property indicator_buffers 5
#property indicator_plots 2

#property indicator_type1 DRAW_ARROW
#property indicator_color1 Magenta
#property indicator_label1 "Buy Signal"

#property indicator_type2 DRAW_ARROW
#property indicator_color2 Lime
#property indicator_label2 "Sell Signal"

input int Tenkan =9;
input int Kijun =26;
input int Senkou_B =52;
input int Chikou_Offset =30;

double SellBuffer[], BuyBuffer[];
int ichihandle;


int OnInit()
  {
      ichihandle=iIchimoku(NULL,0,Tenkan,Kijun,Senkou_B);
      
      SetIndexBuffer(0,SellBuffer,INDICATOR_DATA);
      PlotIndexSetInteger(0,PLOT_ARROW,234);
      PlotIndexSetDouble(0,PLOT_EMPTY_VALUE,EMPTY_VALUE);
      ArraySetAsSeries(SellBuffer,true);
      
      SetIndexBuffer(0,BuyBuffer,INDICATOR_DATA);
      PlotIndexSetInteger(0,PLOT_ARROW,233);
      PlotIndexSetDouble(0,PLOT_EMPTY_VALUE,EMPTY_VALUE);
      ArraySetAsSeries(BuyBuffer,true);
      
      IndicatorSetInteger(INDICATOR_DIGITS,_Digits);


   return(INIT_SUCCEEDED);

            }

            {
               SellBuffer[bar]=high[bar]+(50*Point());
            }   
         
      }


   return(rates_total);
  }

If anyone could help me out I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,

 if(prev_calculated==0)
      first=Senkou_B+1;
   else first=prev_calculated+1;
   
   CopyBuffer(ichihandle,0,0,Senkou_B+1,TenkanArray);
   ArraySetAsSeries(TenkanArray,true);
   
...
   for(bar = first; bar >=0; bar--)

Your are copying "Senkou_B+1" values, which are indexed from 0 tp Senkou_B, that's your range.

But your are using an index "bar" starting from limit which is initalized to Senkou_B1+1 or prev_calculated+1 => out of range.
