How to chart custom Intraday Data?

Using QS I created a Custom Intraday DB "t_ad" and created a downloader to download real time transaction data from one of major
US Exchanges.
DB has following fields, Symbol, Date and Time (M/D/YYYY HH:MM:ss) , bclose(bar_close),bopen,bhigh, blow,bvolume,SessionHigh, SessionLow, tick.

Data is downloaded & stored properly in the DB every few seconds for the defined set of stocks.

How can chart that data with QS intraday charting?

What do I need to do to be able to draw/chart that data using QS Intraday charting.

Thx in advance

Best Answer
In order for custom database data to used, your stock/symbol must have EOD or Intraday data.
Then you can use the GetData function:
GetData("database name", "field name")

Why don't you save this data in the intraday database?

You can store date, time, close, open, high, low and volume in the intraday database and sessionHigh, sessionLow and tick in a custom database.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
