Moderator Note


The order sharing/cross strategy communication really deserves its own thread.

This thread is about "Order Button size and width for Chart Trader".

Please create a new thread for cross-strategy or cross-indicator sharing and communication, and continue this discussion there. It would be appreciated.

Hello,

thank you for sharing this. But I got a problem - when I add this to my OnBarUpdate and then I want to enable the strategy then immediately after checking its unchecked again and remains disabled, so I cant enable the strategy with this.

Did you change or add somehting else in the strategy?

Thanks
Tony

Created a indicator to hide and rearrange the Chart Trade buttons. Information and download link can be found here: https://futures.io/elite-circle/25463-customize-chart-trader-buttons.html#post295057

The base code could be useful for some of the ideas found in this thread.

Hello,

thank you for your code. To change the size of the buttons I need to list them in the code. I canīt find all the button-names somewhere. Where can I find the names of all buttons in chart trader to change the size and position?

Thank you very much.

Best regards
Tony

one can easily resize the buttons etc. they are just buttons, and standard windows control isnt it.

 
Code
for (int i = 0;i <= ChartControl.Controls.Count - 1;i++)
            {
               if (ChartControl.Controls[i] == ChartControl.Controls["pnlChartTrader"])
                {
                    Panel p = (Panel)ChartControl.Controls["pnlChartTrader"];
                    
                    for (int j = 0;j <= p.Controls.Count - 1;j++)
                    {
                        if (p.Controls[j] == ChartControl.Controls["pnlChartTrader"].Controls["ctrChartTraderControl"])
                        {
                            Control ctrader = ChartControl.Controls["pnlChartTrader"].Controls["ctrChartTraderControl"];
                            
                            for (int k = 0;k <= ctrader.Controls.Count - 1;k++)
                            {
                                if (ctrader.Controls[k].Name == "btnBuyMarket")
                                {
                                    Button btnMkt = (Button)ctrader.Controls[k];
                                    btnMkt.Width = (int)(btnMkt.Width / 2);
                                }
                             }
                        }
                        
                    }
                }
                
            }
the above code resizes the Buy Market button to half

run the code once. so put it in OnStartUp()

Just print the names to the output window like this:
 
Code
Print("ChartControl.Controls[i].Name "+ChartControl.Controls[i].Name);
