Time Box "Illegal Integer Value" Issue

Hi FT Support,

Is it possible to modify Time Box indicator to allow time format value in its parameters settings?

Thank you.

Time Box indicator does not allow to enter minutes, you can only use integer hours.

We'll add minutes support later

I can't get the current Time box to display overnight, e.g. 23:00 to 06:00? '0 to 6' is OK, but '23 to 6' doesn't display anything.

Please add minutes in the timebox because the range in pips is different on different time frames.

eg: different nummer of pips on a 1min timeframe than on a 30min timeframe (end time= 7, on the 30min timeframe is adds the whole 7-7:30 bar to the box)

When will this be finished? I can see that this have been an issue since 2009 (4 years ago).

Looking farward to your reply.

Sorry, but this indicator and Sessions indicator use only whole hour values so minutes can't be used when working with these indicators.
