    Paint previous bar

    Hi, I want to paint the previous bar blue if the following is met

    High[0] < High[1]
    High[1] > High[2]

    The previous bar in this case would be High[1]
    Very simple but the strategy builder doesn't let me paint the previous bar

    Hello Ousher,

    Thanks for your post.

    Correct, you can only set the current bar color in the Strategy Builder.

    There are other drawing options in the strategy builder that allow you to reference a "Bars ago", for example you can draw a marker (Arrow, dot, triangle, etc) or a vertical line, or text.

    Here is a short video on how to use draw markers: https://paul-ninjatrader.tinytake.co...MF8xMTMwNTc0MA

    To color a previous bar, you would need to unlock your strategy and work directly in Ninjascript and use the BarBrushes[] method where you can specify a bars ago value.

        Hello DTSSTS,

        Thanks for your post.

        I am not sure I understand how this relates to the topic subject of "Paint previous bar".

        You state, "Doing something similar with an indicator that is calculated onbarclose"

        Can you elaborate on what you mean by "sending sound file intrabar"? Where is the file being sent?

        Are you working in Ninjascript or in the Strategy Builder?

            Hello DTSSTS,

            Thanks for your reply.

            You can use: soundBar = CurrentBar - 1;
