Not possible. 1) There are no indicator's in EA's. 2) EA can only get their values. 3) There is no color in values.
maShort=iMA(NULL,0,PeriodShort,0,MODE_SMA,PRICE_CLOSE,0);
maLong=iMA(NULL,0,PeriodLong,0,MODE_SMA,PRICE_CLOSE,0);

Do you see any colors there? Only a double called maShort and a double called maLong.

You have only three choices: Search for it, learn to code, or pay someone. We're not going to code it FOR you. We are willing to HELP you when you post your attempt and the nature of your problem.

I think I saw a colorful MA in forum somewhere some time ago so I search again. Took me time to find this https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/139547

There is no Indicator . . .  you are calling a function and it returns a value.

Thank you very much :). I must be tired (and so not focusing) yesterday.


Well, if the MA is attached to chart, you can change its color from EA using some Global variables function.
