Benchmark Plot in Visual Studio?

I'm running the QuantConnect/Lean Engine locally in Visual Studio and all is running great, including charting. The only thing I've noticed is that on my Strategy Equity chart the benchmark is not plotted as it is in the web IDE.  Is this not available when running locally? If it is, how do you get it to work?

Update Backtest








Same problem here, I followed these instructions:

Strange thing is that if you look closely, in the video the results website actually has a 'Benchmark' button on the right, but it disappears as soon as the backtest has completed.

The Benchmark chart data is sent correctly as far as I can tell in the debugger.

We disabled it, because the data would come from QuantConnect.
A possible workaround is custom charting, since it would use data from your hardrive or an external source.
