help modifying the OHLC bar chart

hi,
I just started with ninjatrader and need some help modifying the OHLC bar chart. I would like the bars to be colored based on the previous bar's close, on all time frames.
up(green)=close>prev close
down(red)=close<prev close

Fat Tails was generous enough to help code the price bars.
private override void Initialize()
{
CalculateOnBarClose = false;
}

private override void OnBarUpdate()
{
if (CurrentBar < 1)
return;
if(Close[0] > Close[1])
BarColor = Color.LimeGreen;
else if (Close[0] < Close[1])
BarColor = Color.Red;
else
BarColor = Color.Orange;
}

However, I forgot to mention I would like the volume bars to be set-up the same way. So now I need this code to be modified to work with volume bars. I sent ninja an email requesting a license upgrade so I can try coding myself, we'll see.

Thanks-
Andrew

coloring other stuff than price bar is more elaborate, in this case you have 3 colors so you have to add 3 color plots.
ps. the secrete sauce to draw on both panels is to declare "Overlay = false;" then set it to true/false as needed.

Please remember to use the Thanks button.

Also, please use a more descriptive thread title next time. It helps keep things organized. 10,000 threads of "please help" makes things impossible to locate later. I updated your thread title.

Mike

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)
