Automatic Moving Vertical Line

Support Request:

I want to display a vertical line either on an existing indicator or the entire 5 min chart(like a verticl drawing tool)
This vertical line will display at the last CLOSED bar and not the current bar that is still being built and has not yet closed
After the current bar closes this vertical line will advance 1 bar

Any suggestions on how I may be able to configure existing tools/studies to achieve the above?

Try this:
Add the Spreadsheet Study study:
- Set the Chart Region to 1
- Give it a name in the Spreadsheet Name field.
- On the Subgraphs tab, set the Draw Style of SG1 to Background and the Width to 2
- Press OK and OK
On the spreadsheet:
Put this formula in cell K3:

You can minimize the spreadsheet.

If you are using ACSIL, this is quite simple. Use a Subgraph Draw Style of Background and then just simply set that Subgraph Data at the sc.ArraySize - 2 index to 1. As new bars are added you will have to clear this 1 value at prior bars.

Ackin: The study works great but I am seeing these messages in the Message Log, I think on every tick, do you know what this is? Is there anything in your source code that needs changes? I have attached a screen shot
