how to set alert for indicator "bar timer' in Market Analyzer

Hi Team,

Could some one kindly show me how to use Market Analyzer to set alert for indicator "bar timer'.

For example, if i am using 5 minute (300 second) chart, and I want market analyzer to give me alert 5 seconds before a 5 minute bar finishes, how should I implement it in Market Analyzer?

The indicator " bar timer" is a default indicator in ninja trader.

I have been trying to figure it out, but every time the market analyzer says"check log".

Please help.

Thanks a lot

Unfortunately, the error in the log when adding the BarTimer to a Market Analyzer indicates that this particular indicator was not designed for the Market Analyzer in mind, so it is only for use on the chart. This means it would not be possible to use it in the Market Analyzer.
