How to have Ninja plot on a background image

I am wondering if there is a way to show a background image behind a Ninja chart so that Ninjatrader plots on top of the image.

I have built a simulated example with Paint and the transparent color feature.

Here is a five min ES chart from Ninja:

Here is the example for the 2 combined:

What I am trying to achieve is to be able to see Ninja draw the bars on the background image.
At the beginning of the day 8:30CT, the chart would have no Ninja drawn price bars, and the background image would extent out to 15:15.

In this example the timeframe of the background image is not the same as the Ninja chart nor is the high to low. ( I stretched it to match the width I needed 8:30 to 15:15 and stretched the height to approximate the anticipated RTH range).

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

Plotting in advance


If Ninja can't do this (plot on a background image), can one build a data series move the timestamps forward so the end of them is 15:15 and have Ninja plot this?

That is can Ninja plot an externally created data series for times that have not yet happened?

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.
