Hello, I have no clue on coding and was wondering if someone can help with some simple coding. I am trying to have my ATR indicator show on screen with a different colors when the new bar is 1.25 * ATR (for 14 bar periods)

So I think the generic formula would be :
ATR > 1.25*ATR(14)

Here's a picture of what I am sorta trying to achieve.. basically, ATR indicator at the bottom showing each ATR bar periods- black bars for normal ATR that doesn't exceed the ATR rule, green bars would be for buying volume that meets or exceeds the ATR*1.25 (for previous 14 period bars), and Red bars for selling volume that meets/exceed the ATR*.125 rule.

When I added the ATR indicator on screen and then click on the property for ATR, it shows as ID11. I was told I need that info to write the coding..

Any help would be GREAT. Thank you
