Want Price Alert with both Sound and Screen Colour Change

I have been attending a new chat site (StevenBigalow.com) and am now trying to follow at least 10 stocks each day looking for price to go above or below specific targets. I found one indicator that will play a sound but if I'm not here I don't hear it or if I am, it takes me a while to figure out which chart reached the target.

I would like one simple addition to that indicator to change the background property of the chart to highlight it amonst the ten or more charts spread across my monitor.

I have seen an indicator that changes screen colour (bar timer) but the code is sufficiently complex I can't figure out what to move over to the price sound alert indicator.

Can any one provide a simple sol'n for me please?

There is something close in the Ninjatrader online support forum it is called "Alert for manually drawn lines"

NinjaTrader Support Forum

I found it in the Version 7 Indicators section

would be easy to modify it to change background color if needed, looks like this one pops a message on the screen

This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

Maybe this helps, if I understand you right.

Search in the indicator for somthing like PlaySound() and add this below or above:

BackColorAll = Color.PaleGreen;
