[BUG] Bar Spacing when different resoultion mixed

Postby 2haerim » 08 Dec 2008

See the attached png file and its workspace.

It was created using the built-in tsGSDatafeed.

First create a chart with Data1 and Data2 as follows:

Data1 : 90 tick
Data2 : 300 tick

The bar spacing is ok.

Next, add Data3 for 1 minute resolution.

The bar spacing will get wider and wider as the realtime ticks are coming in.

After you watch this phenomnon, save and close the workspace. Then reopen it.

All the history bars are plotted quite dense. But as soon as the realtime ticks coming in again, those new bars will get plotted with wide spacing.

Another way to change the display is to change the barspacing from Format Symbol(or Window). If you change the barspacing value to a different one,
all the current bars spacing will get dense.

Please fix this inconvenient display behaviour.

In case you would ask about hidden symbols, there were no hidden symbols or indicators.

Maybe if there are hidden symbols or indicators involved, I suspect more complicated situations would happen. But that's another story. You may test further involving hidden symbols and indicators.

Dear HaeRim,

The problem of varying bar spacing in real-time when tick- and time-based resolutions are mixed is a known one.

At the moment, there is no ETA for the fix.

will this also fix the bar spacing problems one encounters when working with multiple volume data streams?

Best regards,

Those are related issues. The fix for both would be the same. For now, I don't have any information on when the fix is planned to be implemented.
