    customize timeframe shortcut & add Bar type choices to chart

    Hello,

    I found that 2 very simple but usefull features are missing to NinjaTrader

    1) the quick change feature allowing to swith timeframe/bartype by typing text within the chart does not allow to setup or customize bar types or times frames shortcut

    Say I imported a custom bar type for NinjaTrader, I should be able to assign to it a letter so that if I type on the chart for exemple for 5X, the chart switches to this new timeframe/bar type like it does when you type 5M to switch to 5 minutes chart.

    Also, defaut letter assignement should be customisable easily.

    All this could be achieved easily by adding just one parameter line more on the DataSeries window. Please have a look.




    This way, when you type within the chart, you could select existing AND new timeframes/bar types the way you really want...






    2) The same way, you could also add a parameter line within the DataSeries panel again to decide if yes or no the desired timeframe/bar type can be selected within the "quick change" contextual menu of the Toolbar of the chart





    Achievement : the user can now build a custom quick change contextual menu from the Toolbar with the timeframes / bar types he really uses on a habit basis and nothing fancy he never uses !!

    In this exemple, only 1 Minute, 5 Minute and Daily are kept, and "4 Range" is added...

    Hello SARdynamite,

    I will forward these suggestions to our Development team and ask them if they can add this to the list of future considerations of the software.

    Thank you for your feedback and detailed description.
