I'd like to draw a vertical line on Friday Close or last bar of the week.
I searched and understand I can use Color Background Based On Alert Condition.
But I can not understand BARDATETIME definition.
So please tell me the how to code...

What are the Session times of the chart, and what is the Bar Period?

Try this:

The first half of the formula finds the Fridays.
The second half of the formula finds the Sundays after the Fridays.
When both are TRUE, it finds the last bar on Friday.

WEEKDAY =6 is Friday
WEEKDAY =1 is Sunday

BARDATE is the Date of the Serial DateTime, counting the days from Dec 31, 1899.
