Bar Timer Indie

Please help. I have this indie for tick, volume and range charts and it works great. When I try to load the minute bar version I get this error message. Any suggestions??? I'm using NT7.

TIA,

Rick

BarTimerMod.cs

You will probably need to replace line 132 with

 
Code
 
&& Bars.Session.InSession(Now, Bars.Period, true, Bars.BarsType))
Not tested.

Why don't you use the bar timer of NT7?

The code of this indie is not entirely clean, looks like a modified NT 6.5 indie with some unwanted remainders.

Big Mike wrote these a while back. You load tick, volume, range and bar indies on your chart. This way you can switch back and forth between them without getting that annoying NT message across the bottom of your chart. You know the one that basically says......you can't use a volume counter on a tick chart. So you would remove the volume counter indie and load the tick counter indie.

Thanks Fat Tails for your quick response,

Rick

im using this bartimermod.cs, but when i have my chart set to hourly its ending the hour on the half hour, so 12:30, 1:30, etc.. is this normal as the mkt opens at 3:30cst? or should it be ending each hourly bar on 12, 1, 2, etc..

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

@madLyfe: The hourly bars align themselves to the start of the session. If you have selected a session template for ES which starts at 3:30 PM CT, then the hourly bars will have timestamps on the half hour. If your session starts at the full hour your hourly bars will have timestamps on the full hour.

A nice idea... i well add a start time option to all my pubished bartypes(for example my free t4tBetterBars / Elite section)

Then its session independent possible to define the start of any time period...
start=1min when time Period=60min give hour bars started the session defined time
start=30min when time Period=60min give hour bars started on any half hours
start=60min when time Period=60min give hour bars started on any full hours

Up to this time, i dont know that NT7 will per default start any timebar with the session start. Any other concepts use hour bars fixed on full hours. (i self dont use time bars)

I well realize a session independent way for define the start of a hour bar. I well do this with a additional parameter for a special new hour bartype. (or i fixed predefine a simple selectable (named) FullHourMode, HalfHourMode or SessionMode)
