Is it possible using Thinkscript to automatically set and run TOS OnDemand start time every hour, eg. 6:30, 7:30, 8:30, ...?

Hi, All,

When I run Thinkorswim OnDemand to do back test, the running time is 1 or 3 seconds, I only want to back test every hour of the stock, and don't want to reset the START time OR wait 1 hour to back test.

Is it possible using Thinkscript to automatically set and run TOS OnDemand START time every hour, eg. 6:30, 7:30, 8:30, ...? Or some alternative ways to achieve the same goal?

Thank you.
@qxie Thinkscript does not provide us any means of writing studies that will be interactive with the platform-controlled elements or any ThinkOrSwim modules... Custom modifications are beyond the scope of the capabilities of the platform... :(
Hi, MerryDay,

Thank you very much answered my question promptly.

Any idea can get the same goal by using workaround ways? Main point is not to wait an hour or every 15 minutes second by second. Seems the only way is to reset the START time.
