Default Is it possible to programmatically navigate chart?

Hi there,

Is it possible to programmatically navigate a chart from an Add-On?

For example, I want to to be able to jump to the location of a drawn object, or it could just be a timestamp as I will have a list of the timestamps where the objects are drawn.

Thanks for your time,

codeowl.

Hello codeowl,

While it is possible to set the charts y-axis (price scale) range and scale programmatically, it is not possible to set the x-axis (time scale) programmatically.

Please see the forum thread below for tips on changing the y-axis programmatically.

It is not possible to change the x-axis (time scale) range or scale programmatically.
I have submitted a feature request on your behalf for this. Once I have a tracking ID for this request I will post this in this thread.

ChelseaB,

Thanks for following this up mate. If I want to check on the status of this feature request, is there a tracking system where I can view this, and possibly subscribe to receive notifications when the ticket is updated?

Regards,

codeowl

Hello codeowl,

There is not public access to our tracking system and we are not able to send out updates about the status of requests.

This tracking ID is so that if you would like to check on the status of this in the future you can do so using this ID without submitting another feature request.

Do you just post a forum topic with "what's the status of SFT-1171"? Or do you send a weekly email with the subject "what's the status of SFT-1171" ?

How exactly do you "check on the status of this in the future", if there isn't any system for it?

Hi leocrespo,

Thats exactly right. You can post a forum post asking about a feature request (or search for an existing thread that already mentions that request ID and ask in that thread about the status). You can also send an email to platformsupport [at] ninjatrader [dot] com.

The best time to ask about a particular ID would be after a new version is released (such as when NinjaTrader 8 Beta 11 is released) and you are not able to confirm the change in the new version. If you ask our staff we can let you know if it was included with that release or not implemented at this time.

I see. Wouldn't it be a better use of everyones's time and energy to post the status in a page? What @codeowl suggested is actually very reasonable for 2016's standards.

Hi leocrespo,

I will enter a feature request to make a public page showing the status of feature requests on your behalf.

Let me know if you have any other suggestions.
