How to program chart trader? Is it possible?

On Ninjatrader forum I read that you can't modify Chart Trader yet I believe I see that Indicator Warehouse has a position size indicator, which looks to me, has a button and drop down box on, including their logo, on Chart Trader. Anyone has insight to coding Chart Trader?

I created a strategy (with the help of a lot elite members) that gave me my own push buttons and utilized the ATM for order handling. If that is what you mean.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

Thank you redratsal. I will check out those threads.

ThatManFromTexas, I am aware of the work that was done for you but I was more thinking of having buttons on chart trader itself instead of part of a strategy. I think its doable since It seems like that is what Indicatorwarehouse did.

Thank you guys for helping.

This might give you some idea. Bukkan is the keeper of the knowledge as far as I'm concerned. He was a tremendous help to me. You may want to go by his website. www.volumedigger.com

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()

You can put buttons on the chart itself. Here's the chart button indicator that allows you to do that.

You can see how some others have use this indicator here:

The chart below is what my trading charts have looked like for the past couple of years, using the buttons on the right to enter and manager trades..

OCO problem

I try to add an OCO to a stop (or limit) order in the chart trader.
For testing I took the code that Bukkan posted in this thread and added the oco (OnBarUpdate) to a stop order.
(the code is not tested. Not for live use!)

In a strategy I can use OnExecution... for trade confirmation. With chart trader it does not work.

When placing a market order everything is fine. The entry and the oco are fired at the same time.

For stop and limit it's different.

I place a buy stop at 1300 protected by oco.
when the 1300 is touched oco is fired (before the buy is filled)
-> I am protected with the possibility to have no fill. ( and I can cancel the oco in that case)

Or I change it to oco is fired when 1300+1 tick is touched (after the buy is filled)
-> I have my fill with the risk not being protected.

In volatile markets like CL and 6E the 2nd way could be OK. For ES this could be too risky.

Are there other ways outside of strategy use?
