different colored backround to identify "zones"?

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

I've searched and couldn't come up with the answer to my question. Is it possible to shade different areas of a ninja chart different colors? EX: say you want to color the days IB or Opening range a different color to help you know that you are with in that area as the day plots along. Is this possible in NT& if so how?
thanks

looks like a few people already replied while I was learning how to post an image.

There are numerous indicators on here doing precisely that. just search for color and background, or directly search the download section, background as keyword...

If you search the code for that:

You can do that with BackColorAll = Color.PaleGreen;
BackColorAll

Thanks all for your replies, but I am not into coding (at the moment ) and to my knowledge all of these downloads color vertically, not horizontally. Meaning from one point in time to another, not from one price level to another across the chart.
Once again, much appreciated for your replies.
