So elegant in design, the floating window...

You might want to add to your strategy window information like: Market position, P&L, and resting orders. I find myself toggling between tabs on Ninja to see that information.

BTW - this JAM-guy has also done this in a pretty interessting way!
he did exactly what we talked about - offering a panel to control condition-driven ENTRYs via NT-strategys in multiple ways . - well done i gotta say !

have a look at this "Button" style" - OK, its nothing external or floating but still a first class ergonomic way to handle it in my eyes.

you have clear + big enaugh buttons for klicking at + coloroptions to arrange it visualy in a style that dont allow too much mistakes.

thats the way to go in the future i think.
a coding-challange wich is worth it - but a job for the masters i think !

pretty straight forward stuffs. there are some codes by mindset which puts some button on the chartpanel search for them. that should give you the starting point.

Nicely done! Very impressive Grail signal also! Only trouble is that you can only have one strategy up on the chart at a time... I'm using three in my CONTROL CENTER. How would you handle that?

hi mainstream !

good question
this will be the next step on the way here.

it will work with an external panel (not inside of NT) where your buttons are located - taken away from the chart / taken even out of Ninja !

your strats you host / load still in the CONTROL CENTER like now but the external-buttons has to "talk" with the strats
- means they have to start / stop them somehow.

its goes in direction of bukkans ChartTrader-tool (an external panel out of NT) but corresponding into NT for to start / stop the strats.

i think this will also be easier than to implent such buttons like in the picture into a NT-chart.

a small job for bukkan i would say if i see his ChartTrader-tool !

I was playing with this myself. Not for stragetgies but to hopefully have a kind of head up display.

here is what I managed in ninja without visual. I really wish I knew how to use my visual basic correctly to do this in that then in ninja. But here is an example. Let me know if it can be of some use.

you can add anything you want, I will build a quick one tonight and psot teh code here then you can run with it. I just learned how to do all this so i am no expert . In fact i just learned some of visual basic last night.


But basically you can build the window in visual basic, then just copy the code over to ninja, changing a few things and then when you load the indicator, or strategy the window loads. Id love for this thread to continue. So we can all learn from one another

Here is a simple form

I tried to organize the code the best I can, I also cannot say the code it perfect or most proficient.

but load the strategy, also make sure strategy is on and a window will pop up, with more coding this window can hold buttons etc. anything you want. This is the simplest code i know to do it, but i just learned yesterday

I think if we all work together we could really bring ninja to a whole new level

Also i know this is nothing to some people but I had never built a windows from till last night. and now i even got one with buttons that actually do orders in ninja.

WOOHOOOOOOOOO

Id like to thank big mike for this forumn, a year ago i could not code and now i can make a blank window LOL

Oh and a shout out to BUkken cause its his code that i figured out how this all works
