Is there any way to code in a strategy drawing the candle stick outlines?

What's a "candle stick outline"? What would be the rules of the strategy?

Although I'm not sure what it's about, here's something from the WealthScript Guide that comes to mind: Multi-Time Frame Analysis > Intraday/Daily > Overlay Daily Candlesticks on an Intraday Chart.

In the "Chart Style settings" there is a "Draw Outlines" option when candlesticks are displayed. I have a Workspace with some windows that I like with the Outlines and others with out. Every time I load the Workspace I have to manually change this setting. I was hoping that there might be a way to do this with code.

There isn't a way to do this currently. By design the last selection is "sticky" and is stored with your user preference settings. When you recall a Workspace, the ChartStyle settings are read from those preferences, but there is only one set of settings per ChartStyle.

The same goes for bar widths, and I'd personally like to see that saved on a per-chart basis too. :(
