Data Box annoyance: It stays on top of all windows even while NT is in the background.

Output Window: programmatic way to be cleared from within ind/strat - good for keeping things visually lean, and easy on resources.

Addendum: perhaps that method call should allow to specify how many the-most-recent text lines to leave while purging all the rest. Zero (default value) would mean clear it all.

Within the DataBox window, right click and disable the option "Always On Top".

That makes databox get behind all windows including NT windows. Imho, proper functionality should be:
1) "Always On Top" selected: databox on top of NT windows only. If e.g. Excel is active for I just clicked on it and want to type something there, databox should not be on top of Excel.
2) "Always On Top" deselected: standard behavior - just like any other window.

IB Gateway

Support for the Interactive Brokers Gateway is in my opinion absolutely necessary.

Charts (intraday): Keyboard shortcuts to jump to either beginning or end of the session that's currently under cross-hair. Very useful to check what happened when the market opened or what followed at the next session opening. This way, we don't have to scroll back watching when session break line will show up among 100s of 1-min bars.

Something like:
Ctrl+Shft+Home -> beginning of session
Ctrl+Shft+End -> end of session
In both cases, chart jumps so that session marker is centered on chart, unless it's either first or the last session on chart.

Backtesting: Ability to know that we have reached the very last bar on chart. Something like LastBarOnChart read-only bool property within ind/strat.

Live vs off-line vs lost connection: Ability to know that we are off-line / lost connection to the data feed and/or broker. Perhaps an event(s) called automatically within ind/strats - something like OnConnectionLost specifying whether it was datafeed or the broker. That probably calls for OnConnectionEstablished companion too.

Don't hold me to this but I believe this might work:

if (CurrentBar + 1 == Bars.Count)
// Reached last bar

Is this what you are looking for OnConnectionStatus() ?

Allow the importing of .cs files. If it compiles great, if not throw a warning message. But too many people try to import .cs and don't understand why it doesn't work.

Incorporate a changelog and readme into the import/export process. Show the changelog/readme prior to the user hitting "yes, import now".

@gomi and I worked on designing a whole new changelog/automatic updating system for indicators, and gomi created the framework. Maybe one day I can finish the server side and put it into action... it notified you when there were new versions of indicators, and showed you a changelog.
