    Ok, I got it working by restarting NT8 (for some reason F5/recompiling doesn't work)

    The lines 154 & 155 to customise the wicks only colors

            Hello Everyone,

            To change the color of the candle body, I use the code snippet:
            BarBrush = Brushes.White;

            To clarify this thread, is there a code snippet that we can insert to change the color of the candle wick?

            I do not wish to change it manually and have it apply to all the bars with Chart Styles.

            Thanks Irv

              Hello,

              Do you want the candle wicks to be all in white color (meaning the upper wick and the lower wick to both be in white on every candle) ?
              If so, please download the Chart Style there:
              [URL="https://ninjatraderecosystem.com/user-app-share-download/upperwickvslowerwickequivolume/"]https://ninjatraderecosystem.com/use...ickequivolume/[/URL]

              Then to load the Chart Style:
              Just simply click on the chartstyle menu on your chart and select 'UpperWickvsLowerWickEquiVolume' or set as the default chartstyle instead of candlesticks.
              *Then right Click on the Chart and select DataSeries or press Ctrl+F to customize the Wicks colors.

              Then to set the wicks color to white, select the white color in the Properties window for

              Colors - Up Bar upper Wick
              and
              Colors - Up Bar lower Wick

              and

              Colors - Down Bar Upper Wick
              and
              Colors - Down Bar lower Wick

              Please see attached ChangeWicksColors screenshot

                Or what you mean is to change only some of the candles wicks colors (according to you own custom logic) to white in a custom indicator and not in a chart style? If so, I'm not sure that is possible for the wicks (if I remember correctly the wicks are only customisable with ChartStyle i.e. for all candles and not only some of them).

                  Hi PaulMohn,

                  Yes, this is correct. Change the color of [I]some[/I] candlesticks.

                  Just looking to make some candlesticks white so there is less data to see.

                  Thanks Irv

                    Hi PaulMohn,

                    This is really neat.
                    I'm curious, do you find it useful in your practices?

                      ij001
                      I'm still not sure it is possible with either ChartStyles or indicators. I can't find the post that mentioned it. I think you might find answers in the Indicator forum (it should be faster to ask a question there "How to color the wicks of some candles but not all with an Indicator or a ChartStyle".

                        It can help in many ways, mainly to contrast body color and opposite wick or other combinations. Do you have another use in mind?
