I have tried a few different variations and keep getting errors when I go to compile.

Does anyone have a study that colors OHLC bars based on the previous bar's close? Basically a white bar for a candle that has close > that its open and a red bar for a candle that closes below it's open

Thanks for any help!

1zach4,

I don't have a paintbar study ready, but it might be possible to point you in the right direction towards fixing your code when you post it.

If Close < Open then
begin
PlotPB(High,Low,Open,Close,"OHLC",Red);
end
else
begin
PlotPB(High,Low,Open,Close,"OHLC",White);
end;

I get the following error:
A namespace cannot directly contain members such as fields or methods

1zach4,

I have no problem compiling this code in either Tradestation or Multicharts. What platform are you trying this in?

Multicharts.net if that makes a difference?

1zach4,

yes, as Multicharts.NET doesn't use EasyLanguage, but either C# or VB.

This might help you:
