angevoyageur: I recommend to all not answer such thing that "use google or use this and you will have found this", it's absolutely not useful. Ignore it.

Great forum !!!


Congratulations.


A lot of people find this form useful, but they ask sensible questions.

You may as well ask "Is there an indicator that draws wiggly lines on a chart?"

You show an example chart image that has random length lines, apparently placed randomly with no explanation.

I don't know of any such indicator.

Sorry, I believe that this forum  was like another mlq4 forums ( for example .ru ) more dynamic and interactive where you can do a lot of type of "sensible" questions. Thanks for your replies... I found the answer of my question...

//#property indicator_type1   DRAW_LINE

I believe that you want to draw sections, not lines 

   //PlotIndexSetDouble(0,PLOT_EMPTY_VALUE,0);

 I don't think that this is supported in mq4

         //else SectionBuffer[i]=0;
         else SectionBuffer[i]=EMPTY_VALUE;

 by using zero, lines will be drawn from zero, use EMPTY_VALUE

 Not tested
