Do a search for this in the TradeStation forums and I'm sure you will find a solution.

The first thing that came to mind is something like this (don't know if correct, just first thought):

var: n(0), avgdailyrange(0);

for n = 1 to 20
begin
avgdailyrange = average(highd(n) - lowd(n),20);
end;

Use my TRO_24HOURS indicator.

You want to know the range for each hour right?

"You want to know the range for each hour right?"

i think not...
I want to get Average Daily Range (for 20 days) on 15 or 1h harts.
Example:
R1-yesterday range was 120pips
R2 - 2days ago - 100 pips
R3 - 3days ago - 97
-----------
R20 - 20days ago -180 pips
Average Daily Range = (R1+R2+R3+..+R20)/20
I can do it very easy for daily charts But i need it for calculating on 15 min charts.
Example: i Make enter long if 5SMA crosses 12SMA and (Today High- Today Low) < Average Daily Range

It does't work - it recalculate Range on each 1h bar. But it's wrong. Each day has only 1 Range - for all day. This Range changed only on 00:00

Ok, now I understand what you want.

Use TRO PLOT.

Set the input to averagefc( (HighD(0) - LowD(0) ) , 20 )

You'll also need to format the indicator scaling.. set it to subplot 2 or higher.

You may want it to display as a histogram, so format the style.

Hm...TRO PLOT works good. But... its calculate its value on each bars inside day. Avery day has only one Daily Range.

Well that depends...... for today, the range changes everytime there is a new daily high or daily low.

If you count today, then the value is going to change.

averagefc( (HighD(1) - LowD(1) ) , 20 )

Using yesterday's data should take care of it.
