    Overview

    In addition to the Aggregation periods available from the Toolbar, in DXcharts allows you to create date and time presets. The presets are used to specify a particular aggregation, which is the data aggregated into 1 bar, and the date range – the time period dispalyed in the visible area of the chart. You can create up to 15 presets by manually specifying the amount to be aggregated data for 1 bar and the date range for which the entire chart will be plotted. The preset is then saved as a ready-to-use template that is displayed in the bottom-left corner of the chart for quick access.
