Post From: Universal Renko bar fill on new bar creation

Attached is a snippet comparing the NinjaTrader 2-2-6 vs the Sierra Charts 4-2-6 Universal Renko bar chart bars. In particular, note the last bar. On NinjaTrader, a new bar is filled from the offset position immediately when the bar forms. On Sierra Charts, the bar doesn’t fill from the offset until the bar closes. The offset position is the middle of the previous bar for these settings.

Also attached is a snip of my Sierra Charts chart settings.

1. Is there a way to configure the Sierra Charts 4-2-6 Universal Renko bar chart to immediately fill from the offset position when the bar forms?

2. if the answer to 1. is "no", is it possible for a code-savvy user to modify the existing Universal Renko chart code to make their own Uni-Renko chart code? Is the existing Universal Renko chart code available?

3. If it is possible to create custom chart code, have any users already done this and posted it somewhere? Where would I check for this?

FYI- I already read the whole page on Renko charts: https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/RenkoCharts.html so no need to redirect me there.

Thanks in advance.
