Help Modifying OBV indicator to plot standard candlesticks

I am trying to get the the standard OBV indicator in NT7 to plot in standard candlesticks. The only choices available are "line" primarily among others like dot, dash..ect but no candlesticks. I have successfully applied HiekenAshi to it and it works great but I don't like the smoothing appearance of HeikenAshi. I would much prefer standard Candlesticks. Does anyone know if the existing indicator can be modified to add standard Candlesticks or another workaround that would work?

OBV is just a single value per bar from this...

 
Code
protected override void OnBarUpdate()
		{
			if (CurrentBar == 0)
				Value.Set(0);
			else
			{
				if (Close[0] > Close[1])
					Value.Set(Value[1]+ Volume[0]);
				else if (Close[0]  < Close[1])
					Value.Set(Value[1] - Volume[0]);
				else
					Value.Set(Value[1]);
Candlesticks are a DataSeries with 5 values OHLC vol. What would make up all this missing data?

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.
The steed of this Valley is pain; and if there be no pain this journey will never end.
