Thanks: 2 times

I am trying to make and indicator based on time from one start date to a specifice number ahead. 

For example 1 Jan 2023 is start date + 29 days = 30 Jan 2023 (should plot on chart)

This indicator i have made

sd:=Input("DATE",1,31,1); sm:=Input("MONTH",1,12,01); sy:=Input("YEAR",1980,2100,2023);

start:= sd=DayOfMonth() AND sm=Month() AND sy=Year();

x:=BarsSince(start);

If(x=0,1,0); If(x=29,1,0);

Now this is plotting Bar count instead of Date count. 

I request all friends please help me to rectify my code if i am making any mistake in it.

Thank you all

Hello,

The code looks to be correct based on number of bars. One thing to keep in mind is that the start date must be a valid trading date. For example, in the US January 1st is not a valid trading day, so if you use this as the Start Date it will not plot anything. If you use January 3rd 2023 then your indicator should plot.
