Hello everyone,
I apologize for my english...

I am considering to buy WL5, but I need to know if is possible with this one to use C# for set the bar price as rectangles, and for having variable space within bars. I am new to c# too, but I know that is possible with "rectangle" to set the hi-lo price range to set the bases of the recttangle, and the width of it can be set as proportion of the hi-lo range...

Could you help me in this way?

Thank you in advance for your support!

Yes it's possible provided that you're willing to create your own Chart Style Adapter - you can do this in any .NET language. Variable space "within bars" could be tricky, however, if you need to actually draw more bars than exist in the underlying price series.

Anyway, all Chart Styles in Wealth-Lab 5 are "adapters", so you can already see many possibilities. Note that the API documentation you'd need to create an adapter is not yet available and pending Fidelity approval.
