    How to show time period of chart

    Hi there,

    I use the below line of code in an indicator to display a chart's Session Template. Could anyone please tell me what code I could add to this indicator to show the chart's time period. For example "(1 min)" or "(8 Range)"?

    Code:
    ..
    DrawTextFixed("myText", Bars.Session.TemplateName, TextPosition.TopRight);
    Thank-you
    Michelle

    Hello michellepace,

    Thanks for your post.

    Here is an example that also includes the instrument full name:

    Code:
    DrawTextFixed("myText", Bars.Session.TemplateName+"\n"+Instrument.FullName+" "+BarsPeriod.Value+" "+BarsPeriod.BasePeriodType, TextPosition.TopRight);
    The "\n" is used to create a new line below the session template name.

    On a CL 07-17 2 minute chart, here is an example of the output:

    Nymex Metals / Energy ETH
    CL 07-17 2 Minute
