Time Chart on NinjaTrader

Hello,

I am relatively new to trading on the NinjaTrader platform. I used to trade on the ThinkorSwim platform. Probably the only thing about ThinkorSwim that I liked better than NinjaTrader was the charts. On ThinkorSwim you could make the candle (or whatever else you use) be displayed in tick, time, or volume. The horizontal axis was always price and the vertical axis was always time. This is the same for Ninja but the lines running vertically (time) would not stay consistent. For example, ThinkorSwim would have a vertical line displayed every 5 minutes regardless of what was going on. If more candle appeared between vertical lines being displayed or there was simply more space between the line it showed greater volume/momentum going on in that time frame. On the other side, if the vertical lines were closer is would show less volume/momentum. It appears that the Ninja lines do not do this. Is there a way to do this on Ninja?

Unfortunately not, time grid lines are auomatically generated.

A workaround would be to not display any vertical gridlines and then write a custom indicator that draws the needed lines....
