How to change Volume Bar Color for Doji Candle


I need help with coloring volume bar another color when a doji shows up
I've tried multiple ways, but can't get the logic right
The picture shows a dot above the volume bar representing the candlestick Doji in the price graph
Instead of a dot I would like the volume bar to be a different color like white etc...



input length = 20;

input bodyFactor = 0.05;

assert(bodyFactor >= 0, "'body factor' must not be negative: " + bodyFactor);

plot Doji = IsDoji(length, bodyFactor) and RelativeVolumeStDev(50).RelVol >= 2;


Doji.SetDefaultColor(CreateColor(153, 153, 255));



declare lower;

declare zerobase;

input length2 = 60;

input numDev = 2.0;

input allowNegativeValues = no;

def rawRelVol = (volume - Average(volume, length2)) / StDev(volume, length2);

plot RelVol = if allowNegativeValues then rawRelVol else Max(0, rawRelVol);

plot StDevLevel = numDev;



RelVol.DefineColor("Above", GetColor(0));

RelVol.DefineColor("Below", GetColor(2));

RelVol.AssignValueColor(if RelVol >= numDev then RelVol.Color("Above") else RelVol.Color("Below"));

@dxk Change your RelVol assign color to this and add the doji color.
RelVol.DefineColor("Doji", GetColor(3));
RelVol.AssignValueColor(if RelVol >= numDev and IsDoji(length, bodyFactor) then RelVol.Color("Doji") else if RelVol >= numDev then RelVol.Color("Above") else RelVol.Color("Below"));
