Hello, I was wondering is it possible to add shaded blocks for the Value Area of volume on a TPO profile?

If not possible, then here is my other inquiry: I have been having issues trying to figure out how to make two inputs appear: "Value Area Highlight Based on Volume" & "Point of Control Highlight Based on Volume" Whenever I click my input value to "YES" for either option it does not seem to take effect. Even when I remove the TPO Value area, there is no appearance of the Volume Value Area.

The answer to your first question is what you are trying to do with your second question. To see the Value Area on the TPO profile based on Volume, just set the Input for Value Area Highlight Based on Volume to Yes.

When you do this, you will most likely see the highlighted Value Area change positions due to the difference in calculations. The same thing is true for the Point of Control. Therefore, you do not want to remove the TPO Value Area, as this Input just changes the calculations, it does not change the highlighting coloring.

Refer to the following documentation for these Inputs:
