Range indicator for time based bars

is there an indicator for ninja that measures the range for the previous closed time based bar in real time and displays that information on the screen to the right of the current bar.

Have you tried the Range indicator that comes with Ninjatrader ? The info is displayed in a panel but it may serve you well.

Yes but it does not do what I want it to...

Here is a picture, maybe that would help.

This is what you are looking for (I hope), I modified a version of the barssincesession from Bukkan https://futures.io/ninjatrader/4913-barcounter-ninjatrader.html#post54474, all I did is change the Draw object at line 51:

 
Code
base.DrawText("txt" + CurrentBar,(Range()[0]/TickSize).ToString(),0,price,Color.Lime);
Instead of plotting the number of the bar it will plot the Range of each bar

It is a good approach as the range of a time based bar is important for interpreting PA.

That looks pretty good, but can it print just the prices of the previous bar and not the actual range of the bar?
