    Future time stamps?

    Plotting in future is done beautifully by NT. However, Time[-X] returns the time stamp of the last loaded bar. Any suggestion on how to get a future time stamp returned by Time[]?

    Kindly, Fredrik

    Hello FREEN,

    It is not possible to get Time Stamps in the future. Since there is not actually a bar object at this time, calling Time[-x] will bring the most current bar.

    Using values in the future is limited to only plots and draw objects and are a cosmetic/visual feature that was implemented. This will not function when requesting a bar index that is in the future.

      For anyone in need, here´s a method that accepts pos and neg barsago values and hence returns historic and future "time stamps". Substitute Time[int barsago] with AllTime(int barsago). It should be generic enough to accept all bars sized in minutes in all templates.

          Thanks for your contribution!

          So, I take it this doesn't work for daily time frames? Since your posting, have you figured out how to handle the issue on non-minute-based charts?

          Thanks!

            Daniel,

            Didn´t take a look on that since I only use 1-30 min timeframes. I believe the same logic is pretty easily applied on days and secs as well. Take a look in the code, feel free to ask if in doubt.

              whats the best way program the day before a specific date.

              I have a long list of dates

              Code:
              ToDay(Time[0]) ==ToDay(2001, 01, 31)
              but i alsoe want to check if its the day before that day or the day after

              Code:
              ToDay(Time[0]) ==ToDay(2001, 01, 31+x)
              but thats not accurate for first or last of the month dates.

              How could i apply the Alltime feature with the dates

                Hello,

                You can use the .NET DateTime.AddDays method which will handle the logic for the end of the month:

                ToDay(new DateTime(2012, 08, 31).AddDays(1));

                Which will produce 20120901
