Hello, I am trying to get Bar period of chart the strategy is running on but so far I have only found method sc.GetChartName(sc.ChartNumber); to get whole name. Is it possible to get only the time part?

For example when I am on chart named NQ-201603-GLOBEX[CBV] 240 Min I would like to get 240.

Thank you.

I have thoroughly checked documentation but couldnt find a way to get (something like) IntradayBarPeriodType and IntradayBarPeriodLength for current chart (or get ChartParameters in general). Could you help me with that a bit more?

Thank you

Thank you but I need to get time per bar, not volume.

We had thought that you would look through that page and find the proper variable. Here it is:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/doc_ACSIL_Members_Variables_And_Arrays.html#scSecondsPerBar

Always check the documentation first.

I had thought that you will point me directly and save me half hour searching function that is not intuitively searchable instead of pointing me somewhere else and waste both of our time. Thank you anyway.

It should not take a half hour to search that page. You should have been able to find it within a couple of minutes.

And it is also important, that you do take the time to study the documentation and minimally rely upon us. In some cases we are not going to provide information easily because this is time-consuming for us and users should search for information which is easily found. This is especially the case with programming related questions.
