i know we can name tabs inside a window, but is it possible to give a window a unique name as well? one problem i have is when im not recording a whole screen(monitor) but a window(specifically NT) the most recorders(xsplit/OBS) have a problem of remembering the window. it is something to do with how NT handles multiple windows. im always having to go into the recording softwares setup and reselect the window i want to use. im not even sure if giving a window a unique name would solve the issue but you can see below that some NT windows are 'null' etc.

Hide P&L completely

It would be wonderful if there was an option on the charttrader or dom screen in NT8 to hide the p&l completely. NT7 allows the options to set to ticks, percentage, and dollar amount but I still find it easy to calculate dollar amounts on the fly. I apologize if this feature has already been requested but I did not see it while skimming through all 80+ pages of this thread.

In trading, shortcuts lead to the longest path possible.

Hi @madLyfe, where did you found the Footprint, Volume profile, Cumulative Delta and Momentum Bars indicators for NT8?
Do they backfill bid ask volume?
Thanks.
Luke.

edit: maybe it's NT7?

Take your Pips, go out and Live.

Oh you did already replied.
It came to my mind after bit it could be NT7, when I looked the pictures again.

Edit: I hope someone will do them for NT8 too.

Why are they not implemented?

They are however, NinjaTrader 8 uses Brushes to set color and there is a Stroke class that handles DashStyle. This is documented in the Help Guide.

I saw document on Brushes and Stroke class, still it's quicker to add a plot and have all those classes available instantly.

They are available instantly.

Plots[0].Brush = Brushes.Blue;
Plots[0].Width = 2;
Plots[0].Pen.DashStyle = DashStyle.Dash;

So I play around with your syntax and also reading this link System.Drawing.Drawing2D.DashStyle - NinjaTrader Support Forum
these syntax works, thanks.
Plots[4].Brush, Plots[4].DashStyleHelper, (int)Plots[4].Width);
