# How to get time and price coordinate on a chart?

I am using the following methods to get current time and price coordinate of a chart.

```datetime time1 = (datetime)ObjectGetInteger(0, "angle", OBJPROP_TIME);

double price1 = ObjectGetDouble(0, "angle", OBJPROP_PRICE);
Print(time1);
Print(price1);```

But I am always getting

time is  1970.01.01 00:00:00

price is 0.0

if its mt5 you need a modifier after the OBJPROP_TIME and OBJPROP_PRICE , like 1, 2 etc

`ObjectGetInteger(0,"angle",OBJPROP_TIME,1);`
Also you can edit a post instead of re posting it :)

But it is still getting the same values.

Yeah thanks. I am new to this site so still trying to familiar with tools.

hmmm, its a trendline object ?

I am implementing this in OnTick().

```void OnTick()

{

if(angleCounter == 0)

{

time1 = (datetime)ObjectGetInteger(0, "angle", OBJPROP_TIME,1);

price1 = ObjectGetDouble(0, "angle", OBJPROP_PRICE,1);

Print("time1");

Print(time1);

Print(price1);

}

if(angleCounter >= 10){

time2 = (datetime)ObjectGetInteger(0, "angle", OBJPROP_TIME,2);

price2 = ObjectGetDouble(0, "angle", OBJPROP_PRICE,2);

//angle = GetAngle();

Print("time2");

Print(time2);

Print(price2);

angleCounter = -1;

}
angleCounter++;

}```

What type of an object is the "angle" ?

angle is double

angle is double

okay and how are you determining the angle counter

You want to create an animation ?

anglecounter starts from 0 and get time1 and price1.

Once reach to 10, get one more time2 and price2. then reset anglecounter to 0.

No I am going to compute trend angle.

And there is a trendline drawn on the chart or you want to create one ?
