Is there a way to set the chart background color ( as when you select background color in preferences) in a strategy code?
I know how to set background color of a bar, and/or a pan (part or full).

Yes, this works. But if I have PadBars function invoked, the coloring stops at the last bar (as expected).

Is there is a way to extend the color till the end of the visible area ?
