Thank you,
I tried Color Bar Based on Alert Condition study, but I didnt find correct syntax of alert defining. Maybe I set up study wrong, bud It didnt work. My programing skills and logic math skills are equal to zero :-(
Any Advice?
Thank You.

Hi,
yes exactly! Color bar or mark it with square or whatever, after it reaches x ticks. For example I would like to color bar which is 10 or more ticks long (from open to close /only body of candle/). This number how much ticks should be changeable.
Thank you very much.

Hi

assuming putting formula on TF,so ticksize=0.1,and you'd paint bar if the distance of close from the open is greater or equal to 5 ticks

try: =ABS(O-C>=0.5).

the problem is you don't show step by step what you did, saying 'still doesnt work' means nothing.
