    Is it possible calling Time of the day without any event-driven known method in NT7

    My goal is simple, calling time of the day regardless of any NT7 event-driven method is called, I mean I'd like to build my own time-driven method. Sounds simple but I believe it's not given NT7 fixed event-driven architecture. It should be something like:

    Code:
    // Variable declaration
    private TimeSpan 	start= new TimeSpan(16, 59, 00);
    private TimeSpan 	end= new TimeSpan(17, 14, 59);
    
    // Core
    if ( ( DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay > start ) && ( DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay < end ) )
    {
      // Do something;
    }

    Looking at this code sample, some question pop:

    Code:
    private void TimerEventProcessor(Object myObject, EventArgs myEventArgs)
    		{
    			TriggerCustomEvent(MyCustomHandler, 0, myTimer.Interval);
    		}		
    
    		private void MyCustomHandler(object state)
    		{
    			// Comparing and customer actions
            
    		}
    1. The only way to call "TriggerCustomEvent" is through "TimerEventProcessor" ?
    2. Is there any other way to call "TriggerCustomEvent" just from TimeOfDay?


    I'm doing my search but any suggestions would be appreciated as always !

    Hello pstrusi,

    If you are wanting to trigger actions even if no ticks are being received (such as when the market is closed), then yes, use a timer.

    Below is a public link to an example of using a timer.

    TriggerCustomEvent() will synchronize the series to be up-to-date if these need to be used. (like calling the time or close price of bar)

    If you are needing actions to take place in real-time but are able to wait for ticks to be received to drive the actions, then use CalculateOnBarClose as false (or add a secondary series for intra-bar granularity).
