How can I focus on 1 candle... and dull the rest of the chart?

I have a 5 minute intraday chart opened up.

How can I focus/highlight the candle that is 10 minutes (so 2 candlesticks before) the current candle? I want everything else to be dulled out so I can really focus on that candle. Can someone right a script for it? I need this to update live during the trading day.

@Pumper see if this is what you want - just adjust the barsback input to highlight the candle you want -
Code:
input barsback = 1;
def bar = !isnan(close[-barsback]) and isnan(close[-1 - barsback]);
assignpricecolor(if bar and close > open then color.green
                 else if bar then color.red
                 else if close > open then color.dark_green
                 else color.dark_red);

This works, only thing is when the candlestick is red it's not really a bright red. But when it's green it looks nice as it's BRIGHT green!
