Question for MC users - coloring OHLC bars

Hi, I would like to paint the OHLC colors in Multicharts red for down days (close < open), I managed to do that using code but I've noticed that the bar gets painted green (default color) and then get's painted red which is kind of annoying when you are watching it in real-time.

Can anyone give a sugesttion on how to work around this problem?

My code
If Close<Open Then

You can try this code:

vars: drawcolor(DarkGray);

if open=close then drawcolor=DarkGray;
