Hi,

does somebody know how the size of the chart window can be programmatically resized with the ChartControl object?

What I want to do:
I want te reduce the width of the chart window in order to get on the right side a "Strip" of about 200 pixels [I have a high resolution] in which I can write my own information regarding the symbol, my own indicators and so on.

Attached I send a screen shot where I describe more or less what I want to achieve:
  1. The chart window is reduced
  2. Also the label for the rates
  3. on the right is a yellow window which is embedded in the whole NT window

Thank you community for your help!

Thank you for the link. I have now this problem: I can compile it without any error but the indicator does not appear in the indicator list when I want to attach it to the chart.

Thank you!

Thank you very much cory. I tried the Splitter and it was exactly what I need. Instead of Splitter I will use probably "Panel".

Again thank you! I was thinking too complicated - not that much experience with C# containers...

Best Regards!
