      Hi Ajay,

      Most of the Graphics functions are not supported by 5.2 and it is quite meanigless to implement this indicator without dashboard. If you want to build the indicates remove all the codes below the plotshapes function. That makes the indicator to work but not the dashboard functions and timeleft features.
