How to create horizontal price zones with labels


I'm looking for a way to input multiple shaded price levels/zones on a chart and add a label to the left side of the chart to denote the significance of that price. Ideally, I'd have inputs that look like this:

Price: 1410.25 Color: Yellow Width/Ticks: 2 Label: Value Area High
Price: 1403.00 Color: Yellow Width/Ticks: 2 Label: Value Area Low
etc... for up to 20 price levels

I've looked through existing posts but haven't found exactly what I'm after. The image below shows something similar except that I don't need the price values on the left, just a label. I'd like to know how to do that for NinjaTrader.

I found something close here, but I want it to look like the image above with the shaded price zones:

Also, if there's a way to add an icon to the toolbar to pull up the list of inputs, that would be ideal. However, I'd settle for a simple indicator while I'm still learning to program in this language.

Thanks so much for your help!
