Changing Price Bar Width based on condition

I am trying to have a script change the width or thickness of a price bar as well as set the color based on signal condition. The script is shown below.
Is this even possible in TOS?

Declare upper;
input HiLkBk = 20;
input LoLkBk = 10;

Def Hi = high >= highest(high, HiLkBk) within 2 bars and close < open;
Def Lo = low <= lowest(low, LoLkBk) within 2 bars and close > open;

Def Signal = if hi then 1 else if lo then -1 else 0;

AssignPriceColor(IF signal == 1 then color.YELLOW else
if signal == -1 then color.white else Color.CURRENT);

Price Bar Thickness

I spoke with a TOS thinkscript employee last week. they are working on functionality of making OHLC bars wider via script. Otherwise, there isn't a way. No time frame on this.
