Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Crosshair size/color

I posted a request on the NT forum but have not gotten a reply.

Does anyone know of a way to access the crosshair settings?

I would like to change the size/color of the crosshair.

There does not seem to be a way to change this in the UI so I'm hoping there is a way to change it via ninjascript or C#.

6.5 ninja support indicates no API for this

With 6.5, ninja support indicates this is not possible through any existing API's

You can change the lable color using the chart properties windows, color for cross hair label

and there is supposed to be an auto-magic change from black to white if the background is a dark color, but I've not tried that.
