    BarsPeriod Base Value on Volumetric Bars

    Hi, I wonder how to get Base Period Value on Volumetric Bars (Data Series Picture), I've tried with BarsPeriod.Value and returned 1 (VolumetricBar Picture), then I tested that code on a 610 tick chart to verify if I missed something but I see this works as expected (TickBar). Please help me with this little problem. Attached is the Indicator used for this test.

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    Hello ricardo88,

    Thanks for your post.

    When you create a Volumetric bar chart, you can see that in the "data series" Properties that it lists by "Base period type" and "Base period value" so in Ninjascript you would need to access BarsPeriod.BaseBarsPeriodValue to obtain the bar size/value. This would be true as well for Heiken-Ashi and Kagi bars where selecting them in the data series window expands out to show base period type and value.

    In looking at the help guide section here: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...barsperiod.htm I see that it does not address volumetric bars directly with BarsPeriod.BaseBarsPeriodValue so I will request a documentation change to add information relevant for Volumetric bars.

      Hello ricardo88,

      Just to follow-up.

      The documentation team has advised they will publish a change to the help guide to reflect the Volumetric bars in BarsPeriod.BaseBarsPeriodValue.
