ChartTrader & Order Button size - width

Hello,

I want to know if some one can modify the chart trader in ninjatrader?
I want to have only a buy - sel and close or flat button. The original chart trader is to big. I need the space for my charts.

Best regards,
Joćo Soares

hi Joćo,

this is not possible in Ninja as far as i know.

what you can do to get more space is, to "hide" the charttrader (black arrow upper right corner)

and to activate Keyboard- Hot Keys in Ninja for Buy + Sell + Close.
go to : tools > Hot Key Manager > Order Entry ... and set the keys the way you like them.

maybe thats a solution for you.

Newer used a chart trader but I think that a normal static super dom is very useful although it wasn't so obvious at first hand.

Maybe try a different approach ... monitor with more pixels?

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()

I'm getting several errors when putting this in an indicator.
Does it go elsewhere?

Maybe I'm just missing declaring some varibles or additional coding?

Thanks

Great, that worked.
So using code like this all of the buttons can be made smaller.
Can the entire panel be reduced to match so that it takes less width similar to the buttons?
I imagine there is a way to list all of the controls to do this?

I've asked NT many times for a way to reduce the size of the DOM but each time they say it is not possible.
Perhaps this method would also allow that.


Thanks,
