Seems simple enough, yet I can't get it to work.

 
Code
                            
input:

    
bgc(lightgray);

Plot1(C"Plot");
SetPlotBGColor(1bgc); 
Anyone with working code?

Thx,
Mike

MultiCharts not Ninja, hence the thread title and location

Thx anyway.

Anyone else?

{ ------------------------- Revision 1 Aug 15 07 ------------------------------
- Simplified coloring code for efficiency.
- Removed Once command to permit use with pre-8.2 Tradestation.
- Added efficiency fix so RGB color values as inputs need only calculate once on startup.

Thx for trying a second time, but I don't see anything there for painting a background color on the chart. Please point to me the line(s) of code you were thinking...

Mike,
SetplotBGcolor is for Radarcreen / Scanner.

If you want to color your BG in charts you need to use Plot1 and Plot2 as Bar High and Bar Low, i.e.

 
Code
vars: BGCol(white);

if close > Average (c,20) then BGCol= cyan else BGCol= magenta;

Plot1(GetAppInfo(aiHighestDispValue),"aHi");
Plot2(GetAppInfo(aiLowestDispValue),"aLo");

SetPlotColor(1, BGCol);
SetPlotColor(2, BGCol);
Click on Price data -> Visual Order -> Bring to Front.
