Horizontal "zones" around a REF line

Hi, I am trying to draw a horizontal line that would stretch up and down (transparent color) few ticks to create a zone or a channel (see the attached picture I found at FuturesTrader71 website).

Any ideas? I couldnt find such an option for REF lines.

Thx. Petr

O.ok, I found how to make a band around the horizontal reference line (X ticks up and down), but still it shows only the lines, I d like the band to be filled with defined color (transparent, below other chart elements).

Anyone?

Oh damn, now I see, it is in the Reference Line options menu, see the attached picture if anyones blind as me :-) ... OK, but then you have to right click the REF line and select "Send To Back" option. Cheers.
