I still can't get there.

I simply want the outer bands to be dark, inner bands light. In other words, inner bands = normal (as in minimal shading against background or no shading against background) and outer bands = not-normal (as in intense shading against background).

No matter what I try, the opposite is achieved. I tried multiple VWAP instances, no change.

I also tried white background chart. No change.

Mike, here's a study collection using 5 instances of the VWAP to color the 4 bands and show the VWAP line.

Put the attached in your Sierra Chart \Data folder, click on Analysis >> VWAP Bands-

This cannot be done with one instance of the VWAP because of the order of the subgraphs, as each subgraph over-paints the one above. The same is true for the order of studies in the Studies to Graph list. To get around this with the VWAP study, each band is colored with its own instance of the VWAP study, in reverse order in the Studies to Graph list, so that the narrower bands over-paint the wider ones.

The colors I chose are best viewed on a black background chart.

Thank you very much @tomgilb. And now, I present the chart which is a work in progress regarding the colors.
