Range bar indicator

I am looking for an indicator or code for TradeStation or Multicharts that can plot the possible high and low for the current range bar (in Tradestation it is called momentum bar).
Wonder if anyone could help.

This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

How about this:

{ plot the projected high and low for a range bar }


if bartype = 12 then begin // plot only if this is a range bar
	If LastBarOnChart then begin
		projHigh = low + (h[1]-l[1]);
		projLow = high - (h[1]-l[1]);
		for k = 0 to BAplotLoop begin
		  	Plot1[-k](projHigh, "High");
      		Plot2[-k](projLow, "Low");

Range Bar

Thanks a lot, for your code. This has partially addressed to my question. As the price moving within the current bar (range), I would expect the possible high close and low close will change at the same time, before the current bar close. Could you help to let me know how to modify your code for it?

Range Bar

Sorry, I was wrong. The high low lines do change during the current bar when price moves.
Thanks again.
