Boolean Error

 

The code compiles correctly yet a warning occurs which says "expression not boolean". In my script, if I were to Alert(UpperWick), the answer is always 1.0 rather than it calculating the upper wick in function of whether the candlestick is bullish or bearish. Much appreciate your help!


 double UpperWick = CalculateUpperWick();
   
    
     bool BullishCandlestick()
  {
      if(iOpen("EURUSD", PERIOD_H1, 1) < iClose("EURUSD", PERIOD_H1, 1))
      {
         return true;
      }    
      else
      {
         return false;
      }
   }
        
     bool CalculateUpperWick()
  {
      if(BullishCandlestick() == true)
      {   
         UpperWick = iHigh("EURUSD", PERIOD_H1, 1) - iClose("EURUSD", PERIOD_H1, 1);
       } 
      else
      {
         UpperWick = iHigh("EURUSD", PERIOD_H1, 1) - iOpen("EURUSD", PERIOD_H1, 1);
      }
      return UpperWick;
   }
  
 
  1.      bool CalculateUpperWick()
    

    CalculateUpperWick returns a bool. Since UpperWick is (almost) never zero, it returns true, which is up cast to a double and stored.

  2. Your code
          if(iOpen("EURUSD", PERIOD_H1, 1) < iClose("EURUSD", PERIOD_H1, 1))
          {
             return true;
          }    
          else
          {
             return false;
          }
    Simplified
          return iOpen("EURUSD", PERIOD_H1, 1) < iClose("EURUSD", PERIOD_H1, 1);

I've looked at it for a while but I don't quite understand what you mean. Can you please show me how to create CalculateUpperWick() . Much appreciate the help :)

Just change the return type of the function to double instead of bool:

double CalculateUpperWick()
