Hello,

Code below is the code for the modified version (to work on NT7) of the original HLC Bars (the NT 6.5 version from the NT Forum). I prefer the look of this, only problem is the bars are not coloured (green for up, red for down), just grey. Would somebody be kind enough to modify this so it colours (or advise me what to change in the code so it colours)?

Many thanks
Dan

Hello,

Code below is the code for the modified version (to work on NT7) of the original HLC Bars (the NT 6.5 version from the NT Forum). I prefer the look of this, only problem is the bars are not coloured (green for up, red for down), just grey. Would somebody be kind enough to modify this so it colours (or advise me what to change in the code so it colours)?

Many thanks
Dan

look for the word 'Gray' replace it with 'Red' for red color.

There does not seem to be an option for this?

Thanks for you reply cory. I followed your suggestion and changed 'Gray' to 'Red'. but now all bars are coloured red. What I want is red for down bars and green for up bars if you know what I mean. I am struggling to identify which are for up bars and which are for down bars in the code so as to change the colour accordingly. Any assistance please?

Thanks
Dan
