change backgroundcolor chart for certain days

I use the following ninjascriptcode to change the backgroundcolor for certain days on the chart. (see below) The code works ok.

When i want my chart displaying calendardays instead of tradingdays so that weekend days are displayed as empty (no bar-plots) i change the the chart property 'Equidistant bar spacing' to 'false' in the chart properties window. The code does no longer do what i want in that scenario.

How can i change the backgroundcolor for days where there are no plots on the chart ?

Thank you,



protected override void OnBarUpdate()
{
if (CurrentBar < 2)
return;
if (Time[0].DayOfWeek != Time[1].DayOfWeek)
{
if (Time[0].DayOfWeek == DayOfWeek.Monday)
{
currentcolor = Color.FromArgb(opacity, backColorRed);
BackColorAllSeries[0] = currentcolor;
Plot0.Set(Close[0]);
}
}
}

Can you clarify "the code no longer does what I want"? Knowing what it does, or does wrong, would be helpful for someone to help you solve it.

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.
6)

Thanks Mike.

I included a chart of the ES. When i set the chart property 'Equidistant bar spacing' to 'false' and the session template to 'default 24/7' weekend days are included in the chart.
At midnight on weekdays the backgroundcolor changes because bars are plotted on the chart. On weekend days there are no bars plotted and therefor the backgroundcolor does not change.
The ninjascript code in post #1 does not suffice at that moment.
I am searching for another way to change the backgroundcolor.
