[User Discussion] - color bar based on alert condition question

I'm using this study on my internals chart to change the background to green if positive and red if negative. currently it DOES change the background, but only for that period of time the criteria was met. I would like the entire background to switch to green if positive and red if negative, not spliced up historically, as looks a little too noisy. I hope this makes sense. It's definitely possible that I have misinterpreted the study settings and this actually is possible, so I apologize if that's the case. anyway, I've attached my chart.

follow up question - Is it possible for lines drawn with the line tool lay underneath the main price graph? in these same charts, i'd like my "zero" line to be underneath, not on top of them. thank you

Do you want it according to the state of the last candle?

If YES it is nonsensical to redraw the constantly colored background bars. Then it would be better to solve this in another way. For example, using a graphic element that will be in the background and will change its color according to the condition. This saves a lot of memory. I will create a study for it today and you can download it from our forum in the evening.

Thank you! yes thats what i would like to happen. i use internals all day long and would like to have that whole chart be red or green so i can almost feel it better if that makes sense. in a perfect world, i'd like the intensity of the red or green to be higher the more positive/negative the internal is. sorry i just now saw this. thanks!
