Hi, I'm opening unofficial NT8 wish list thread! Since Ray has been so good to us with his presentations etc, I thought we'd compile a list and pass it on to Ray through BM.
So here're my first suggestions:
1) Make both IDataSeries and DataSeries to be IEnumeable so that we can use LINQ to query it.
For more info and examples of the power of LINQ: 101 LINQ Samples
2) Make an event that triggers when mouse click (or r-click, m-click) occurs on chart - something like OnMouseClick. I think this would be one great addition to chart trader functionality - ability to click on chart and have your strategy code be notified about it with accompanied info (keyboard keys pressed at the same time, price level where mouse pointer was, etc). That way, one could code strategies to be triggered by discretionary actions. Sort of semi-automation.
3) Same as #2 but only for keyboard action (combination pressesd, etc).
Thanks and keep them coming.

When using the strategy analyzer, when i make an adjustment to the strategy and recompile, the strategy analyzer forgets the optimization settings and I have to reenter them.
This gets annoying because the normal workflow when you find a bug is that you fix the strategy, recompile, then want to see that the bug fix worked. Unfortunately all the params are lost so you have to try to remember what settings you were using for the previous opto, and re enter them one by one, 3 entries per param.
This is a standard use case of the strategy analyzer but does not work well.
Just curious, in this case, would you want it to imply fixed scaling mode as soon as a user dragged it vertically? Thinking about it, It could 'pop' off the vertical lock and use fixed and 'pop' back in back to whatever the chart setting is. Otherwise there is the chance of flickering the scaling for the first couple pixels up/down
Right now, when doing a backup of NinjaTrader, some options contain multiple items.
"Database" for instance contains ATM Strategy templates, Session templates, Instrument Lists / Custom Instruments and historical trade execution data.
I'm assuming "configuration files" contain multiple items too.
In NT8 each items should be separated so user can pick only what he needs to backup.
Also, very important point, right now when restoring a backup NT file, it overwrites any existing installation. This is very not practical !
Let's say I want to share with a friend a non-supported list of futures instruments that I created myself, and that he has also created some new (and different) ones on his computer. If he restores my database backup file, he will get my list of instruments for sure but he will also lose his as well.
Therefore, during restore window, there should be an "overwrite" box to check or not for each items forwarded in the backup file.
This possibility should be available on user side for any important usefull items that could be shared between people : i.e. ATM strategy templates, session templates, instrument lists / custom instruments, all types of templates, etc
Because you just don't want to start from a blank NT installation each time you want to share those stuff... (non-sense right now)
