Can a floating window be coded with Ninjascript ?

Is it possible to create a floating window with buttons to pass orders if different conditions occur.
For example, there could be a button to trigger/activate a buy stop order if the developing bar closes above the high of the previous bar. Things like that, is it possible with Ninja script or do we need a specific DLL created outside Ninja ?

its possible with using a ninja-strategy if i get it right what you mean.

also you have to use those buttons in the chart's toolbar if you like to start + stop this strategys
(if you want to decide manualy when the moment has come to check for those conditions)

i understand your idea like this :

you have a condition ( if the developing ( current ) bar closes above the high of the previous bar)

and if this is true yu want to send an order out ( iE a buy stop order at price X )

Why not just hold the strategy inactive in the NINJA main and click and unclick the active box as needed?

It seems to me that a floating palette is the proper way in terms of ergonomic.

Hi Max,

a window that is subsidiary to the main document window. It has a special small title bar and it floats above standard windows even when it is not the current focus. A floating palette is typically used for options and controls.

Best regards

Causality is the relationship between an event (the cause) and a second event (the effect), where the second event is a consequence of the first.

something like this it seems you mean :

i think this has to be external then, not NT-intergeted.

like bukkans Chartrader but for allowing the control of NT-strategys (on / off) instead of orders only.

all is possible with nt better c#, but you will switch to visual studio with nt integration to create an indicator/strategy which pass data between two forms (ninjatrader and a custoumer form). data can be in a simple form 0,1,-1 for ...

i have not look in bukkans solution.

here is a simple german tutorial:

[C#] Datenaustausch zwischen zwei Forms @ tutorials.de: Tutorials, Forum & Hilfe

but i think it is the same approach, but you will need some dlls.
