Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

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.

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.

-Plots[4].Pen.DashStyle,
-(int)Plots[4].Pen.Width

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);
