## Get time value of last zag and zag

 16 kenned45900 2014.03.10 21:11   Hello, Could somebody helt me get the time of the last zig and zag value. I have this to find the value: ```      int m5, x5;     //Her er det egentlig m, x men jeg førte også på valutaparet       x5=0;       while(m5<2)       {       if(zig5>0) zag5=zig5;       zig5=iCustom(NULL, 5, "ZigZag",ExtDepth,ExtDeviation,ExtBackstep,0, x5); // husk å bruke rett timeframe       if(zig5>0) m5+=1;       x5++;       } When I have the time I will use iBarshift to find the barshift: zag5Barshift = iBarShift(NULL,0,timezag5); zig5Barshift = iBarShift(NULL,0,timezig5); ```

If you already have the shift just use Time[shift] Just get the last two non-zero zigzag shifts and you're done - no iBarShift needed.```for(x5 = 0; x5 < Bars; x5++){    zig5=iCustom(NULL, 5, "ZigZag",ExtDepth,ExtDeviation,ExtBackstep,0, x5); // husk å bruke rett timeframe    if(zig5 != 0.) break; } for(m5 = x5+1; m5 < Bars; m5++){    zig5=iCustom(NULL, 5, "ZigZag",ExtDepth,ExtDeviation,ExtBackstep,0, m5); // husk å bruke rett timeframe    if(zig5 != 0.) break; } Print("last two are at ",       m5, "<", Time[m5], "> and ",       x5,"<", Time[x5], ">"); ```

I guess thats the way to to it but I'm just learning:-) In case somebody else need it: ```double zig5; double zag5; double TimeAtZig; double TimeAtZag; int BarAtZig ; int BarAtZag ; int BarDifference; int ExtDepth=5; // zigzag indicator int ExtDeviation=5; int ExtBackstep=3; //+------------------------------------------------------------------+ //| script program start function                                    | //+------------------------------------------------------------------+ int start()   { //----             int m5, x5;     //Her er det egentlig m, x men jeg førte også på valutaparet       x5=0;       while(m5<2)       {       if(zig5>0) zag5=zig5;       zig5=iCustom(NULL, 5, "ZigZag",ExtDepth,ExtDeviation,ExtBackstep,0, x5); // husk å bruke rett timeframe       if(zig5>0) m5+=1;       x5++;       }              for(x5 = 0; x5 < Bars; x5++){       zig5=iCustom(NULL, 5, "ZigZag",ExtDepth,ExtDeviation,ExtBackstep,0, x5);       if(zig5 != 0.) break;       }       for(m5 = x5+1; m5 < Bars; m5++){       zig5=iCustom(NULL, 5, "ZigZag",ExtDepth,ExtDeviation,ExtBackstep,0, m5);       if(zig5 != 0.) break;       }       TimeAtZig = Time[m5];       TimeAtZag = Time[x5];       BarAtZig = m5;       BarAtZag = x5;       BarDifference = BarAtZig - BarAtZag;                  Alert( "TimeAtZig ", TimeToStr(TimeAtZig, TIME_SECONDS)," TimeAtZag ",TimeToStr(TimeAtZag,TIME_SECONDS));       Alert( "BarAtZig ", BarAtZig,"  BarAtZag ",BarAtZag, " BarDifference " , BarDifference);    //----    return(0);   } //+------------------------------------------------------------------+```
