InBarsOut v1
Attached is a paintbar indi for TradeStation to show Inside
and Outside bars - or rather TS' Engulfing and Harami bars.

The attached picture has inside bars light green & bright red,
outside bars dark green & red. It is just an example - not all
reversals are signaled as well as that !

To be able to use the windows colors specified in the code,
you have to install x11.eld from
https://jamstrategytrading.com/FreeStuff.htm
This allows access to many of Windows' standard colors by
name.
See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X11_color_names

As in the code, to specify a color, one then prepends
color.
to the color's name :
InDnColor(color.Red)
for instance.
If you're happy with TradeStation's range of colors, you can
remove every instance of
color.

The (amateur) code :

 
Code
{ Candlestick PaintBar }

inputs: Length( 14) , 
    InUpColor(color.Chartreuse) , InDnColor(color.Red) , 
    OutUpColor(color.DarkGreen) , OutDnColor(color.FireBrick) ,
    NmlUpColor(color.LightSeaGreen), NmlDnColor(color.LightSalmon) ,
variables: oBullishEngulfing( 0 ) , oBearishEngulfing( 0 ) , oBullishHarami(0) , oBearishHarami(0), barColor(blue) ;

Value1 = C_BullEng_BearEng( Length, oBullishEngulfing, oBearishEngulfing ) ;
Value2 = C_BullHar_BearHar( Length, oBullishHarami, oBearishHarami ) ;

    if oBullishEngulfing = 1 then barColor = OutUpColor  
    else if oBullishHarami = 1 then barColor = InUpColor   
    else if oBearishEngulfing = 1 then barColor = OutDnColor  
    else if oBearishHarami = 1 then barColor = InDnColor   
    else if Close > Open then barColor = NmlUpColor  
    else if Close < Open then barColor = NmlDnColor  ;

    PlotPaintBar( High, Low, "InsOuts", barColor ) ;
