@ThatManFromTexas: I understand that you have already attained the stage of Arahat - ask @Anagami for more details - and no longer trade for money but for enlightenment. It cannot be disputed, that screen time gets you enlightenment. I understand that you try to increase your exposure by further ligtening up the background of your charts.

Unfortunately, I am still stuck in the middle of the human world with a wife who wants to be entertained and two kids who are in desperate need of food, clothes and mobile phones. I am currently unable to concentrate on my spiritual journey to salvation. But please feel free to add Fill Polygons to all my indicators and publish them here.

Sorry I missed that @Fat Tails , haven't been on lately very much (got a new gig as a professor that keeps me busy). Can't wait to get back into the SWING of things.

I first thought you made a bad joke, but then I saw that there is really somebody selling this for money.

The indicator code is rather simple, and I think that it is rather a gadget, not something that should be sold.
Here is a poor man's version that allows you to insert a background picture on the price panel.

Hello Fat Tails,

I am afraid that this item has low priority, but it should be easily possible to make this work for NT8.
