            if (e.ItemComponentName == "range" && e.FilterType == DateTimePeriodFilterType.Year) {
                // Creates a new 'Last 4 Years' period.
                FlowDateTimePeriodLimit startDate = new FlowDateTimePeriodLimit(DateTimeInterval.Year, -4);
                FlowDateTimePeriodLimit endDate = new FlowDateTimePeriodLimit(DateTimeInterval.Year, 0);
                DateTimePeriod period = new DateTimePeriod("Last 4 Years", startDate, endDate);
                e.Periods.Insert(3, period);

                // Removes the default 'Last Year' period.
                period = e.Periods.FirstOrDefault(p => p.Name == DashboardWinLocalizer.GetString(DashboardWinStringId.PeriodLastYear));
