Hi, again, folks...

Is there any way to modify the look of the candles in NT7? They're hollow and I'd like to make them solid. I know some indicators out there modify these when they run, so if there's an indicator out there that will do this or if I can do it inside NT7, I'd be very grateful for the direction.

Thanks... Hap

hi hapster,

not exactly sure what you mean, because standard candles in nt7 are solid. go to data series, chart style and then candlestick and you can select what color you want for up and down bars.

are you maybe using an indicator that plots the candles hollow?

Mine are all filled on every chart type. Did you accidentally set your bar colors defaults to transparent??

Hi, guys... sorry to waste your time... yeah, I did something or other to futz it all up. Got it fixed now. There's a slight "learning curve" to this version 7. I'll try to work with this stuff more before I bother the board with questions....

yes, there are some changes in nt7. might take some time to get used to it. but imo well worth it.

in the mean time, I believe many people in here don't mind at all to help.
