ADX based Histogram help

I am wondering if it would be possible to create a histogram when specific criteria is met on the ADX. It should just be a single line (histogram) for each period the criteria is present. If it is possible, can anyone point me in the direction to find code for the following:

ADX(14) < 20
DMI+ < 20 and turning upward
DMI- > 40

then plot a red histogram

ADX(14) < 20
DMI+ > 40 and turning upward
DMI- < 20

then plot a green histogram

Any help for this would truly be appreciated! I have made many sad attempts but cannot get anything working.

Please confirm this is for MetaTrader? As you've posted in the MT section, but your profile says you use Tradestation.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

This is for MT4. I am considering switching over to use MT4 and have experimented with some of the platform features. But I have yet to dive into the coding world they use. I am still used to the easylanguage side.
