You can use the Crosshair tool (Ctrl+F). Click on last candle (index 0), hold down and move your mouse to the desired candle. First number is index.

how to get the index of bar ?

Old post, but I found this thread because I wanted to be able to see the index of a bar.

The index is useful to me when writing indicators—especially when I have a problematic bar. I can dump debugging information for a very specific bar, like this:

if ( i == 31212 )
{
    PrintFormat("i [%d] rates_total [%d] time [%s] SizeBody [%f]",
                i,
                rates_total,
                TimeToString(time[i]),
                SizeBody(i)
                );
}

I call this using a scalpel instead of a sledgehammer.

So I created a simple indicator to be used as a tool to find this index number. Pretty simple, really. Hover over the bar to see the index number and time.

I've attached it for posterity.

It looks something like this:

Because it was an old post, the topic was germane, and I didn't notice the section.
