    Jumping to a specific Date in the Chart

    Because of some Backtesting i need to jump to a specific Date in the Chart on the 5 Minute Timeframe. Exactly from the beginning of 2017. I cant figure out how to get there without scrolling hours :-) Next Problem is, after closing and reopen the platform the next day, i want the Chart to show me the Day i left the Ninja Trader the day before.

    thanks for your help.

    I found an answer for the first Problem. I enabled the scroll bar in the properties. now i can scroll very fast. thats fine. but i need help for my second question. when i reopen the NT8, the Chart is at the current pricelevel.

      Hello M4r1o,

      Thanks for your post.

      Yes was going to suggest the scroll bar and in addition you can turn on a screen date that may help you as well. The chart has a property that will display the range of date/times currently displayed so you can observe this when scrolling back. To enable, right mouse click on the chart and select properties, next click to enable "show date range" then click OK. At the top left of the chart window will be the specific begin and end dates/times of the bars displayed on the chart. This would be applicable to any chart not just in the analyzer. Reference: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...properties.htm

      There is no means to have the platform show where you left off unless you choose not to autoconnect. You can turn off autoconnect for your connection and the platform (when started) would show where you left off yesterday. However to go forward you would have to connect which then would move you to the current price. If you like I can create a feature request that says, "option to start NinjaTrader, connect to data feed but leave charts at last bar displayed on the previous day."

        Not sure if I posted my original comment in the right place but it looks like it also belongs here. Looking for NT Support to answer this if possible

        https://ninjatrader.com/support/foru...rogramatically

        I too would like to programatically skip to a DateTime on the chart

        (Feature # 13367 - Added Go to... ability to chart scroll-bar right click menu) and is available so users can manually enter a date and time but I need this functionality to be automated.

        I plan to have some key events marked on the chart and want the user to have the ability to skip to the datetime when pressing a button.

        I have figured out sending keystrokes but this is quite clunky (if scrolling one page at a time), slow (if scrolling one bar at a time) and I need to put the desired bar with the correct datetime at the rightmost of the chart.

        Since this functionality has been added to the NT8 chart scrollbar already then is it simple enough to expose the C# function that has a datetime parameter in it? I have looked for hours and cannot find an appropriate function anywhere.

        This would really help.

          Hello MBScalper,

          There are no exposed methods to scroll the chart programmatically.

          I will submit your vote to the feature request for the development team to consider this.

            Hello MBScalper,

            I have received tracking ID# SFT-2331 for this request to scroll the chart programmatically.

            Please note it is up to the NinjaTrader Development to decide if or when any request will be implemented.

            We appreciate your feedback on this.
