Note Panel 5 *
Update: I got tired of needing to go into the indy in order to change font and color, so added some buttons to mod them for each note in the form.

This is a very simple indicator that doesn't do a lot. It simply adds up to 10 customizable notes to a side panel of user defined width. I am posting it because it illustrates how to place a button on the toolstrip and how to call an external form from said button.

With multi-timeframe charts a refresh of one indicator cause all real time indicators to reconfigure as historic indicators, causing the plots to change slightly. Being able to call a form from an indicator allows the user to change the parameters of that indicator w/o disturbing any other indicators.

I have attached the indicator and will post the VS project files if anyone is interested. To install the indicator, extract to your Custom folder w/o NinjaTrader running. Start NT and import NotesPanel. Because it is a .dll based form you will need to edit the indicator and right click in the window to Add NotesEditor.dll reference. Compile the indicator and add it to a chart.

When you want to change a note, News @ 10?, just click the Notes button on the right of the toolstrip. Change your notes and OK, or just leave to Form open. Unlike other NT forms, it is not modal.

NT 7.0.1000.6
