Hello selnomeria,

Are you referring to the BarsPeriod page in the help guide which I am linking below?
http://ninjatrader.com/support/helpG...barsperiod.htm

I am not showing this for BarsPeriod.BarsPeriodType but for BarsPeriod.BaseBarsPeriodType which is correct.

If not, please include a link to the page you are referring to.

Hello selnomeria,

The help guide is correct.

When using any bar type other than Kagi, LineBreak, and PointAndFigure such as Minute, Tick, Volume, Day, Month, etc, you must use BarsPeriod.Id and you must not use BarsPeriod.BasePeriodType.

then how to detect (in script) which type of chart is being used?

lets say, i have a script, which should detect the chart type, which user uses (he might switch to kagi or minute bar, but script should detect them). how to do it?

selnomeria,

You can create a condition.

if (BarsPeriod.Id == PeriodType.Minute)
{
}
else if (BarsPeriod.BasePeriodType == PeriodType.Kagi)
{
}

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
