All this stuff is unsupported.

You need to get the ChartTrader controls, and then you can get the name of the currently selected atmstrategy.

string atm = ctrader.Controls["cboStrategy"].Text;

If chart trader is not visible though, I believe this will return an error. Any one knows how to programmatically show and hide chart trader?

Any idea how to solve that known problem with the .Controls?

Maybe:
 
Code
                            
if (ctrader.Controls["cboStrategy"] != null) {

  
string atm ctrader.Controls["cboStrategy"].Text;}
else {
  Print(
"Houston, we have a problem...");
  }

I am using a code like this for the charttrader infos and it does fine as long as charttrader is enabled.
To be more specific: How to solve the above problem that occurs when charttrader is not enabled?

Look at post #12. If chart trader is not visible, the objects do not exist, so you will get errors trying to access them. I use

if ( ChartControl.ChartTraderEnabled && ChartControl.ChartTraderVisible ) {
Blah...Blah
}

I have this error only at startup, change of timeframe etc. when CT is disabled.
But after starting with CT enabled, I can disable the CT and the CT items do exist. The same way as they exist when CT is disabled and you place an order with the right mouse on the chart, then the ATM Strategy and Quantity from CT is used.

Looks like I have to survive the OnStartup, and everything will be fine.

Thanks for code. This could solve the problem. Will test it.

I did a quick test with this code:
 
Code
if ( ChartControl.ChartTraderEnabled && ChartControl.ChartTraderVisible )
It did work without errors. At startup CT must be enabled, or use F5 after that.
Change timeframe, instrument with CT disabled works fine.
To change Account, Strategy, Quantity, the CT has to be enabled (that’s clear, as you want that stuff)

To make it perfect, a code to make CT enabled at startup would be the final point.
That’s just a first test, but IMO the results are promising.

I could not edit my last post to add a comment…. So I have to add a new one.

As the code is not a secret sauce you cannot expect a miracle. It is nice to take the “unsupported code” out of the game in situations where it would produce errors. That’s nice and very useful.
But you have to think more serious about whether charttrader info’s are up-to-date in your variables at a specific moment or not.

To have the code to show charttrader would be helpful. You can access the ShowCharttrader via coding the NT-HotKey. But NT named this HotKey wrong as it is not show-, but enablecharttrader.

Sometimes this “unsupported stuff” goes a baby step forward. That’s always great…

generated code?


I haven't had a chance to look yet...but perhaps the object names are inside the Ninja generated code?


Is there any way to expose all the object names and methods of Chart Trader?
