Candlestick body to range percentage

New member
I'm looking for an indicator that measures a candle's body compared to its range. For example if a 5 mins candle's range is \$10 but the body is \$8, I want an indicator that will plot a graph at the bottom of the chart showing an 80% measure when I hover over the candle. There's a similar indicator on trading view called "Body/ Range %"

Code:
``````declare lower;

def body = bodyheight();
def rng = high - low;
def bodyper = round(100*body/rng,1);

plot z = bodyper;
plot z1 = 0;
plot z2 = 100;
