Adding a 2nd Toolbar on a NT chart?

My first post to Big Mike's... I'm trying to add a 2nd toolbar to the default NT toolbar on a chart. I've managed to find code that enables me to add buttons on the same default NT toolbar. However, I would like to add a new toolbar just below the default one. I'm sure this is something simple, but I'm just not there yet.

Help.

Here is the code that I used to add my buttons to the first toolbar... (perhaps it's just a tweak, or a couple lines of code to get my 2nd toolbar?)

#region Variables

private System.Windows.Forms.ToolStrip strip = null;
private System.Windows.Forms.Control[] controls = null;
private System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripButton btnOrderType = null;

protectedoverridevoid OnStartUp()
{
System.Windows.Forms.Control[] controls = ChartControl.Controls.Find("tsrTool", false);

if (controls.Length > 0)
{
ToolStripButton btnTemp = new System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripButton("temp");
boldFont = new Font("Arial", 8,FontStyle.Bold);
regularFont = new Font("Arial", 8);
btnTemp = null;

strip = (System.Windows.Forms.ToolStrip)controls[0];
//BUTTON #1 -- Order Type Button (STPLMT, LIMIT) -------------------
btnOrderType = new System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripButton("btnOrderType");
btnOrderType.Font =regularFont;
btnOrderType.ForeColor = Color.Black;
btnOrderType.BackColor=Color.Orange;
btnOrderType.Text = "SL";
strip.Items.Add(btnOrderType);
btnOrderType.Click += btnOrderType_Click;
//--------------------------------------------------------------------
buttonsloaded=true;
}
}

protectedoverridevoid OnTermination() {
if (buttonsloaded==true)
{
strip.Items.Remove(btnOrderType); //Button #1
} }

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

you have to add the toolstrip in the chartcontrol. like

ToolStrip ts = new ToolStrip();
ChartControl.Controls.Add(ts);

2nd Ninjatrader toolbar

hi bukkan,

I used your code:
you have to add the toolstrip in the chartcontrol. like

ToolStrip ts = new ToolStrip();
ChartControl.Controls.Add(ts);

but I cannot remove the strip OnTermination:

I am trying ChartControl.Controls.Remove(ts);
but it creates multiple strips if i run the indicator again. Any ideas? Thanks.

Tony

Code to add buttons means is that new indicator needs to be created or strategy or something else?

Thanks.
