Dynamic Bar coding, help?

I am not familiar with coding but I was wondering if anyone can help. I am looking for an indicator that will paint a bar a different color than the other bars on the chart if and when the following happens. Volume is greater than last bar, Money flow is greater than last bar, Momentum is great than last bar, Price has broken the last 3 bars. It would also be nice if the bar could be painted a different color for down and different color for up. Hopefully other requirements could be incorporated into the indicator ie..macd, rsi, cci etc.. so that change could be implimented if desired. Also a choice of colors for bars.
Someones help would greatly appreciated. Attached example: http://screencast.com/t/MzCKIhlgEc

1) sounds like a lot of works to do. 2) by the time all of them indicators align the move is already over programming-wise.

this tells me you are not so sure if it work or not. Tip: next time make sure you sound like you know exactly what you need and what result we will get.

Yes sir Mr. Silvester. That is it. Is there anyway to get a template with the indicator you have for your chart.

Thanks
Hector

how do you know I'm a mr.?

first I need some more details.

conditions for an " up bar". current bar: volume > last bar, momentum > last bar, money flow > last bar.

conditions for a "down bar". current bar: volume > last bar, momentum < last bar, money flow < last bar.

now the price bars. not sure exactly what you mean with "broken the last 3 bars".

Yes you are right my apologies, bad assumption. What I mean that the bar painted would either have to close higher or lower than the last 3 bars.

Thanks

Silvester something strange is going on. Right now I have the Dynamic Bar indicator or my 3 minute chart. But when I go to put it on my 9 minute chart it does not come up. I have tried a new chart and loaded it but that did not work either. Do you know what may be going on.

Thanks
Hector
