They give something called "MacroWorks", so you won't need some NT custom add-on. They also have a SDK, so it will be usable.
@philipp, FYI, I think I can write I'm an "experienced programmer".

with MacroWorks you can realize al direct "key functions"... the problem of key simulations... its need the right application with the right focused windows.

And a warranty to true switch any time from any other app/dialog/... to a 100% secure defined NT7 window is not realistic. For simulate real order hotkeys its need a bidirectional check:
- is the right instrument selected
- is no other order currently running, while its need a repeat logic to prevent more as one orders per single KeyPress
I have see any desks, a only MacroBased solution work only on a stable fixed trading desktop... no Dialogs of other applications, no popups, chat messages,.. while this i self dont have a good feeling

hello sam, hello timetrade,

thanks for your interest.

the pad had to look similar like the one 1 found here X-keys 84 Key Programmable Keyboards
it can be easily customized with larger keycaps and key blockers so that f.e. the buy and sell buttons are the size of four regular buttons.

after first thoughts the pad must have the following buttons

5 buy buttons from 1 - 5 contracts
5 sell buttons from 1 - 5 contracts
1 button for breakeven the position
1 button for closing the position
1 button for reversing the position
1 button for increasing stop loss 1 point
1 button for decreasing stop loss 1 point

the keypad had to work with atm strategies like stoploss and target profits for multiple contracts

@TimeTrade

- is the right instrument selected --> i only trade the fdax
- is no other order currently running while its need a repeat logic to prevent more as one orders per single KeyPress ??? only stop loss order if i add to a position

I have see any desks, a only MacroBased solution work only on a stable fixed trading desktop... no Dialogs of other applications, no popups, chat messages,.. while this i self dont have a good feeling
--> my computer is not a pure trading computer (skype, google running while trading etc.) is that what you mean could be a problem?

Might I ask how much are one of these things?? I have a CNC machine and some keyboard encoders lying around. I could whip one out in a weekend. Just curious. I am thinking a nice oak one would look slick LOL

Actually i was thinking this same idea last week

For a true secure function with possible auto stop settings, "over zero" enlarge/reduce of positions and/or stops in any combinations its dont can be realized with simple macros(without a rulebased and current position based logic).

The first logical step is the realization of a Screendialog with the same logical visual Buttons. For this its possible to programm the special logic per Button and realize all needed background security/stop rules.

When this work, then this can be used as TouchScreenPad or its can connected to a special Keyboard-Hardware.
Tradingfunctions and keyboard connect... this give separate parts of work. While this, a special screen based customized "PadTrader" is a nice basic tool and can also used standallone
