Bars back / Days Back Problem

Go to the next issue (open or closed)

icon_info.png This issue has been closed with status "Released" and resolution "Not determined".

if I switch the timeframe of a chart window via time-resolution-toolbar the Data Range box changes automatically and unwanted from 'Days back' to 'Bars back'.

Steps to reproduce this issue

To reproduce the bug change the chart-timeframe from 15min to 1 Day
with for example 30 Days back data range set. After changing back to
15min again the chart shows just 30 candles of 15min instead of 30 days
of 15min candles. When you open the 'Format Instrument' window the 'Data
Range' dialog-box has changed now to 'Bars Back' from 'Days back'. This
is really annoying, because I often chnge the timeframe of a chart
window and a cost always a lot of time to manually readjust the Data
Range dialog box to 'Days back'.
I hope you can reproduce this issue and quickly fix it.

This is not a feature request. This is a clear bug! When changing timeframe via time-resolution-toolbar from daily to hourly, Data-Range switches automatically from 'Days Back' to 'Bars Back' while the number of Bars/Days lasts.
Please fix this bug! Over 3 Months nothing happend regarding this issue.
Thanks in advance

When you use resolution N Days, where N > 1, you cannot request "days back", otherwise it will look like you request 5 days bars 2 days back for example. It designed to switch to "bars back" when resolution is > 1 Day.

Let's get this fixed. This is very annoying and certainly not useful the way it is.
