                                                   Change volume color based on criterion

How do add volume criterion to change its color? Say change color of volume bar to purple if it's the greatest in last 50 days.
I can then use UpdateColor() to change the color.

I'm aware of the link you suggested, but I'm asking how do I get the highest volume bar in 50 days colored differently. I tried both max() and _max(), but neither works.

To get the highest volume bar in 50 days:

a = hhv(volume, 50);
