My objective is to paint the chart black during the first 15 minutes of open....to discourage trading that time!!!!
How do I define the time element?

@andreythedon Maybe you could try this code. The time function works, but I haven't tested the HidePricePlot() function (this is actually the first time I've ever coded with it) so this may or may not work.
Code:
def time = if SecondsFromTime(0930) >= 0 and SecondsTillTime(0945) > 0 then yes else no;
HidePricePlot(if time then yes else no);

How about placing a blanket or a pillow over the screen? Probably the easiest. Just kidding around. I have the same problem sometimes breaking my rules "No buying pre-market and to wait 15 mins after the bell". You're not alone. Good Luck! @cabe1332

Very nice idea!!!! It didn't work right away...but I can work from that I believe. Thanks
 
Hey everyone. I've had fun scripting over the last month!! So to revisit this post. I actually discovered that if you

ASSIGNPRICECOLOR to color.white (or black if your background is black) then the bars dissappear...AWESOME...Turns out it's not helpful during any type of analysis though!! So I went a little less extreme and just painted the bars light gray!!

YAA
 
I use this code that I found here on this forum. Try this, it won't color bars but a chat bubble on the candle. If you are not in east cost change the time inside the "9:45" to display your time zone. Hope this helps.

addchartbubble(secondstilltime(0945)==0,high,"9:45 ",getcolor(6),yes);
 
I think this should work to add color to the first fifteen minutes of a chart.

Code:
def opening_fifteen = if SecondsFromTime(0930) >= 0 and SecondsTillTime(0945) > 0 then 1 else 0;
plot lowside = if opening_fifteen == 1 then Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY else double.nan;
plot highside = if opening_fifteen == 1 then Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY else double.nan;
AddCloud ( lowside, highside, color.pink, color.pink);
