Restricting Paintbars in Market Session Only

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I am applying a Paintbar to MES CME micro futures ticker.

I established a user-defined time frame in MT Settings to be from 9:30 AM ET to 4:15 PM ET, and have made this my Default time frame setting.

Why does the following C++ code snippet not restrict my paintbar rules to be restricted to the above hours only?



Thanks in advance.

paintbars use whatever timeframe is selected on the chart. Default timeframe is not relevant if one is explicitly set, which is the case for most symbols. It is mainly used for controlling default for auto refresh sources

You don't need to do custom timeframe. MT Already has one - CME GLOBEX Regular Hours. Set that as the timeframe on your chart.
