    Colour bars based off bar high/low

    Hi there,

    I've just asked this question for NT7 but was wondering if perhaps there is an easy way to do this in NT8: I would like to apply the below rules to colour each of the bars in a chart. Is it possible to do this somehow in NT7? (please see screenshot).

    If Bar HIGH < (ie below) SMA10 --> make bar green
    If Bar LOW > (ie above) SMA10 --> make bar red
    For anything else --> make bar grey

    Thanks,
    Michelle

    Hello michellepace,

    Thanks for your post.

    The process is very much the same from NT7 to NT8 however in NT8 you will use Brushes to color with. Here is an example using your example:

    if (High[0] < SMA(10)[0])
    {
    BarBrush = Brushes.Green;
    }
    else if (Low[0] > SMA(10)[0])
    {
    BarBrush = Brushes.Red;
    }
    else
    {
    BarBrush = Brushes.Gray;
    }
