    DateTime."Now" on market replay

    When using market replay to develop a script, the DateTime.Now function returns the system time (e.g. the real time".) However, I need the time we are at in the market replay. Should be obvious but I can't find it in the help for some reason!

    Thanks!

    AntiMatter, there would be no really supported method for this currently (DateTime.Now is pure C#'s computer time) but try using for example - Bars.MarketData.Connection.Now

    I should add that this is on our enhancement list already as well.

    Thanks,

      Thanks Bertrand. I was looking for a similar solution and Bars.MarketData.Connection.Now works for getting the time you are at in the replay.

      I also confirmed in realtime, using Bars.MarketData.Connection.Now gives you the same result as DateTime.Now (at least to 1 second of precision...I didn't check milliseconds), so this is probably the best way to go for most implementations as it should work in market replay and in real-time. Thanks

          TazoTodua,

          In NinjaTrader 8 the equivalent would be:
          Code:
          Cbi.Connection.PlaybackConnection.Now
