30 minutes tick chart ,how can I get the time of the bar ?

Postby Emmanuel » 14 Jan 2012

Hi

I am using Multicharts 7.4.with a 30 minutes tick chart , with the DataPlayback.

When I play the 30 minutes tick chart back, minute by minute,

How can I get the time of the bar ?

If I use the Date and Time word in Powerlanguage, I have the time and the date of the 30 Minute bar : I have time interval of 30 minutes :

(100 for 1 AM then 130 then 200, )

How do I get the time of the minute (by minute) with Dataplayback?

Again as mentioned in the other prior email, in dataplay back you only get the completed bar (barstatus=2). I think to get the completed times from smaller bars you need to run in global mode but again all the smaller bars are also running with completed bars only (barStatus=2).

Hello,

Unfortunately there is no way to get time of every intrabar minute of a 30 minute bar in current implementation.
Example of similar situation:If you put your cursor with hint on a bar plotting in real-time, you will see that, though the bar is updatng, its time is alwayes the same - time of the close. Please, leave us a feature request: https://www.multicharts.com/pm
