Hi,

Quick question regarding stock charts. I am maintaining the Ohlc data series and appending values when the timeframe threshold is reached.. what the BarTimeFrame property is used for in StockChart?

Thanks

Paul

Hi Paul,

As BarTimeFrame documentation states, this is the time in seconds for each bar on the CategoryDateTimeAxis.
Actually, it allows you to specify the time for 1-bar (or one point) on the chart in seconds, e.g. CategoryDateTimeAxis.BarTimeFrame=900 means each point on the chart represents 15 minutes. This is used for financial charting to assist the range and zoom calculations in the X-axis. It is set to “-1” by default, which means that time frame is calculated by CategoryDateTimeAxis automatically, you can set it to any value greater than zero.

Please, take a look at our SciTrader example and play around with different time frames on the left top corner to see it in action.

Best regards,
Yuriy

    YuriyMany thanks for the clarification .... a useful addition to the ohloc dataseries would be an append(datetime,value) that would automatically determine whether update h/l/c or add a new bar based based on the values passed in, the current bar time/values and the barTimeFrame property.Thanks againPaul
