[User Discussion] - Display Bar Period on Chart

Engineering:

I use a 5 minute chart, which I manually switch between timeframes via the keyboard. I sometimes forget to switch back to 5 minute as I flip between charts in my chartbook, which can cause real problems in reading the market. I really need to see the Bar Period displayed, similar to the Symbol Study, so I do not ever mistake the 15 minute, for example, for a 5 minute.

I searched the support board for a solution, but it would seem that combining this w/ the Symbol Study, or a separate Study similar to the Symbol Study are possible solutions.

Thank you.

We will see about adding this.

When available from SC, please make sure the source code (.cpp) is included as usual.

Thanks.

Example
n_ACSIL::s_BarPeriod BarPeriod;
sc.GetBarPeriodParameters(BarPeriod);
if (BarPeriod.ChartDataType == INTRADAY_DATA && BarPeriod.IntradayChartBarPeriodType == IBPT_DAYS_MINS_SECS)
{
int SecondsPerBar = BarPeriod.IntradayChartBarPeriodParameter1;
}

sc.GetBarPeriodParameters()

Engineering,

Has this been completed by SC yet?

If not, may I suggest this as a long-standing [Feature Request] ?

Thanks.
