Hi Tom,

Yes, I already tried that. But I need more than one session, and do
not want to (ultimately) have to add 12 studies in order to see all
the sessions I want. So I'm trying to do this in ACSIL, hoping to
combine them into one. I tried to use the Fill Rectangle Top/Bottom,
but could not get the time right, ending up just filling the very
last bar on chart.

I also looked at the Code for:
Studies6.cpp:3012:SCSFExport scsf_HighLowForTimePeriodExtendedLines
But, it's overly complicated as it is using a lot of extra (and useless) functions while
seemingly trying to compensate for a dynamic chart. This effectively prevents
you from effectively re-using the code for multiple sessions.

Basically we need (to create?) a function such that it can be used like this:
Rectangle(Name, Color, LineStyle, StartTime, EndTime, High, Low)

Frankly, I'm surprised there's not already something built-into SC for doing this.
