Is it possible to set up notional volume on TOS?

Is there any way to see volume by $USD amount rather than number of shares? It would be awesome for my trading style.

I have found this: https://enzlo.com/how-to-add-dollar-volume-vol-on-td-ameritrade-thinkorswim-tos/ however he use it only as a watchlist column
Code:
plot DollarVolume = Round("number" = (hl2 * volume / 1000000), "numberOfDigits" = 1);

However I'm not sure if it's possible to have the same as a lower study on Volume Chart (instead of volume by shares, have volume by USD)
and BTW, how can I use this feature in a part of Scan, i,e: Look for Stocks +1B in Market Cap + 100 Million USD trading today

Can someone help me please?

I'm confused, is that not already the code you need? You can just create a new study and paste it in...

Adding this below the code you already have will help you dress it up more like a volume chart.
Ruby:
DollarVolume.setPaintingStrategy(paintingStrategy.HISTOGRAM);

Once you have it saved, you can use it as a scan filter.
