I am afraid to inform you that the lines representing the high/low values can not be represented on top/in front of the bar that shows the open/close values, as of now.




The high/low values can never be hidden, completely, by the open/close bar for they have to be either equal or greater than the values of the open/close bar.




In the instance that they are equal, the bar itself is considered as signifying the high/low values, as the high/low values are equal to that of open/close.




In the other case, when the high/low values are exceeding the open/close values by any margin, the lines are shown behind the open/close bar.




In the instance, if this issue/functionality is utterly and absolutely necessary for your project, then please mail us at: [email protected] and let us know of your requirement specification and we can customize it for you.




I hope this helps. :)
