Big Thanks to Zacharydw00 and to Gordo for sharing the LB Wicked Bar Type! However, the Bar Counter indicator won't work with that type of bar. I was wondering if any programmer can take a look at Felton Bar Counter (or any other bar counter) and tweak it to show the tick countdown on LB Wicked bar type. Thanks.

...It doesn't work with the BetterLineBreak because that bartype uses a different internal identifier "Custom?" number. Each custom bartype in Ninja is identified with a unique label....and I did not include the labels for BetterLineBreak or for Ninja's standard LineBreak bar types. I have a request from other futures.io (formerly BMT) members to make a modification to this code...so if I get time during the holiday season, I will look at adding these other bartypes as well.
The following user says Thank You to photog53 for this post:
I have the indicator, but I´m not sure how to use it, I thought it would count down with "real" numbers. It counts down, up many times before the candle actually close, is there a setting for this or how do I really know when the bar is near to close?
The issue is not the bartimer.....this BarType will stay in an area and keep ticking until it breaks out....(thus the name LineBreak). Unlike time based bars (Minute, hour, day) which only go for a specified time...and unlike tick or volume bars which accumulate a specified number of ticks/volume....LineBreak bars will continue to count and reset themselves until price has moved enough to trigger a "line break".
The BarTimer will capture this and show it to you with the "Red" number that appears beside the timer. This number tells you how many times price has bounced in the same area, filling the bar, resetting it, and then filling it again.
My suggestion is to spend a bit of time and learn what the "LineBreak" and "WickedLineBreak" BarTypes do.
