QuoteTracker paintbar alerts parameters

    Can anyone tell me how you can distinguish between same indicators that are based on high or low or open or close? What if we are using for example SMA(15) based on the high, another SMA(15) based on the low, or SMA(15) based on the open and another SMA(15) based on the close. How are these distinguished in the paintbar formula? Under the quotetracker manual it gives some examples but still isn't clear. If anyone can help that would be greatly appreciated. From the manual:

    Variables can be of the following format:

    The (params) are needed to identify which specific indicator is being referenced. It may be omitted if there is only one such indicator or if you want to refer to the first such indicator on the chart that the paintbar will be applied to. For example if the chart has a CCI(6,1) and a CCI(14,1) indicator, CCI (without params) refers to the first CCI indicator on the chart and is the same as specifying CCI (6,1). To reference the second CCI indicator, you must use the params (14,1).

    The [Offset] is optional and refers to how many bars (or days) back and is in the form of X[Offset] where X indicates how far back and can refer to an indicator value such as CCI(6,1)[2], a bar value such as Bar Open or a day value such as Day High.

    The .SubInd qualifier is optional except in cases where it is explicitly needed (such as Pivot Points, CCI or Bollinger Bands).

    For example:
    MACD(12,26).Signal[1] means the signal line of the MACD indicator with parameters 12,26 one bar back. Pivot Points.S1[1] means the S1 pivot line one day back.
