One other question I have is that if I tie this to a bool, when users save a template will it be set correctly on load??

Only things that are saved ("serialized") are Properties.
So you must tie your setting to a property, or to a bool or whatever that is exposed as a Property (even hidden, use [Browsable(false)])

ok I will look into this. I knew about the buyout part but the controls are so fancy etc. Hopefully windows did not dumb it down toomuch.

I would imagine since its microsoft then i wont have the issue with the license key file that dundas uses in viusal studio being ported to ninja.

thanks for all the help guys

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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Hi timmyb
I am looking for a simple dropdown button (list: setup1, setup2, setup3) in a strategy. Could your code work for this? If so... I would be pleased to get it.
