I don't think so (though I have not tried version 6 yet). You can 'fake it' by plotting HL bars with the plot set to the thickest width. Worth signing up to their forums, people are pretty helpful over there.

here a reply posted by TJ in another forum

{in the Format Study window:

set the plot1 and plot2 TYPE to Bar High and Bar Low.

set the plot weight to thick.

}

inputs:

BollingerPrice( Close ),

TestPriceUBand( Close ),

TestPriceLBand( Close ),

Length( 20 ),

NumDevsUp( 2 ),

NumDevsDn( -2 ),

Displace( 0 ) ;

variables:

var0( 0 ),

var1( 0 ),

var2( 0 ),

var3( 0 ) ;

var0 = AverageFC( BollingerPrice, Length ) ;

var1 = StandardDev( BollingerPrice, Length, 1 ) ;

var3 = var0 + NumDevsUp * var1 ;

var2 = var0 + NumDevsDn * var1 ;

condition1 = Displace >= 0 or CurrentBar > AbsValue( Displace ) ;

if condition1 then

begin

Plot1[Displace]( var3, "bar high" ) ;

Plot2[Displace]( var2, "bar low" ) ;

Plot4[Displace]( var3, "UpperBand" ) ;

Plot5[Displace]( var2, "LowerBand" ) ;

Plot6[Displace]( var0, "MidLine" ) ;

if Displace <= 0 then

begin

condition1 = TestPriceLBand crosses over var2 ;

if condition1 then

Alert( "Price crossing over lower price band" )

else

begin

condition1 = TestPriceUBand crosses under var3 ;

if condition1 then

Alert( "Price crossing under upper price band" ) ;

end;

end ;

end ;
