Welcome to futures.io.

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.

Z-Order Programmically

I checked with NT support and they said there is not a way to do this.

There should be a way to do this but I've not found the solution.

The Z-order of indicators can be changed with the scroll wheel on a mouse.

For people that have a mouse that is great. But with a laptop it is not that easy.

I would like to be able to control the z-order (on top/on bottom etc) of my indicators with code.

Does anyone know of a way to change this?

Currently, there is no way to do this that I know of. It is all internal to NT.

I too have asked that they add another keystroke or menu item to change this. Have not heard anything back.

For a long time now there has been keyword "ZOrder = x" you can put in #init, this seems to be what you are asking for, yes?


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.
