Chart Bar with volume indicator inside Bar?

I hate to bother anyone but i was wondering if anyone may know how to code the following for Ninja 7:
what i was thinking about was a chart bar to have the net volume for that bar running inside of it. for instance if a bar (5 min, 150 tick, 5 range or whatever time frame you would use) had a net minus 50 voume for the bar it would graph it according with the level being shaded in red or whatever color and have the net amount in the bar. or if the bar had a net plus 50 for the bar it would graph it according with the level being shaded blue or whatever color. this would be a live bar and the bar would be either filling up with red or blue to determine the acitivity on how the level is being processed. it would also have the pricing regular bars going on also. i have attached a screen shot http://screencast.com/t/oaTW8VpRFN.

thanks
hector

This is relatively difficult to code, as it would require new bar types.

Also I do not understand what is the net volume of a bar.

Isn't this known as Equivolume bars, or something like this... I've seen it before, someone has written it for NT already -- the width of the bar is determined by the volume of the bar.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

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.

Yes, but the shading in Equivolume bars relates to the close of the bar. The shading in TFlow bars reflects the bid/ask volume of the bar. If I understood correctly, that was what the OP was after.

Bar volume indicator

Thanks everyone for responding. I have attached another example of what I visioning.
What I was looking for was:
1. An outlined candle with wicks.
2. Insided the candle it will be changing color with red or blue depending on the current net fo the volume
for that bar at that time. Almost like a bucket being filled up with water but only it would be volume.
3. Inside or below the bar it would give a small running net amount at that time. Plus for buys and minus for
sells. I guess one would have to figure out on the volume which is the ask trades and which are the bid
trades.
4. When the bar closes it would then show the final out come. The bar would be filled blue for plus net volume
or red for negative net volume. On the bottom of the bar or inside it would show the amount by which it
was net.
I think this could help out when a reversal may be coming, slowing down or changing in net volume pertaining to buyers and sellers. Anyways hopefully this can be done.
Here is the example I was talking about bar2 close - hector24's library

Thanks Hector
