Timeframe Deconstruction for Watchlist Column Multi Timeframes

Active member
As we know, TOS doesn't support multiple TF's in Watchlist columns. I was wondering if I could use Mobius timeframe deconstruction code to define custom timeframes which I could then use to define HLOC for each timeframe I build. Has anyone attempted to do this before? Do you see any reason this wouldn't work?

Code:
# 30 minute blocks of time based on 24hr clock

# Deconstruct getTime() function
# Mobius
# 06.06.2019 Chat Room Request Updated from prior start on same code

def time2 = GetTime();
def millSecDay = 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000;
def days = time2 / millSecDay;
def years = days / 365.228739;
def partOfYear = years % 1;
def DaysThisYear = 365.228739 * partOfYear;
def DOY = GetDay();
def TodayRemaining = 1 - (DaysThisYear % 1);
def TimeNow = 24 - (24 * TodayRemaining);
def MinPast = Round(60 * (TimeNow % 1), 0);
 
Solution
I've updated the code to correct a few bugs. Works perfectly during RTH as far as my testing shows.

@greco26 Give it a go and report back... I'm sure there are multiple members who would be interested in your findings... The only potential issue would be slowing your watchlist updates even further depending on its length...

Here's what I came up with for the watchlist column. It shows me timeframe continuity on the 5, 15, 30, 60, and Day. Testing this tomorrow during RTH but looks like its working after hours. We'll see how this does on the performance side of things too.
