this works for me

#region Event Handlers
private void centrePrice_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
this.ChartControl.YAxisRangeTypeRight = YAxisRangeType.Fixed;
double yAxisSize = this.ChartControl.FixedPanelMaxRight -
this.ChartControl.FixedPanelMaxRight = Close[0] + (yAxisSize / 2);
this.ChartControl.FixedPanelMinRight = Close[0] - (yAxisSize / 2);

// force repaint so we dont have to wait for another event
ChartControl.ChartPanel.Invalidate(); // <<<<<<--------------------

#endregion Event Handlers


Please bear with me... I am self taught in writing code for Ninja Trader.... and my teacher isn't very good...

I'm trying to understand the code. Is this the entire thing or just a snippet?


I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

follow adamus code

Adamus posted pretty much the entire thing above.

He is adding toggleTrade and centrePrice buttons to the ChartTrader panel.

His centreprice event handler will be fired when he clicks his centreprice button.

After the image coordinates are reset he needs to ensure that the image is repainted.

Moving the mouse off the region and back again has the effect of forcing a repaint, so that is
why he sees the behaviour that he sees,

To avoid dependence on other random repaint events he simply needs to force a repaint to happen by
using the Control. Invalidate() method.

This forces the repaint so that he can see the effect of his coordinates change.

So simply add ChartControl.ChartPanel.Invalidate(); to the event handler after changing the coordinates.

There is plenty of discussion about using .Invalidate method on the various forums, MSDN etc.

hope this helps
