Help with paintbar code.

I'm new at this and trying to learn how to write script.

Would like an example of how to write a paintbar indicator (candle or OHLC) for the following:

2 CCI indicators one being a period of 5 and another being a period of 20 as examples.

The 20 period CCI closing in between the -50 and +50 areas and a spread of 100 or greater between its closing number and the CCI 5 period closing number (example cci 20 being +45 and the CCI 5 being -55 or greater).

I would like the PRICE bar that follows after this occurance to paint a different color if it's closing price is lower (or higher depending on the direction of the movement) indicating a potential pivot.

thank you so much.

you can set BackColor, BarColor, and CandleOutlineColor based on your trigger criteria.

here's a link to the NT7 Help Guide

also, if you are going to allow the users to select a color, don't forget to serialize it ... here's a code-snippet to illustrate:

        [Description("Select the color")]
        public Color MyColor
            get { return _MyColor; }
            set { _MyColor = value; }
        public string MyColor_Serialize
            get { return NinjaTrader.Gui.Design.SerializableColor.ToString(_MyColor); }
            set { _MyColor = NinjaTrader.Gui.Design.SerializableColor.FromString(value); }
        private Color _MyColor = Color.Blue;
