Hot keys programming different windows

I trade 4 instruments, would it be possible to install some kind of a program that I can simply press ctrl-1 to enter a market order on instrument 1, ctrl-2 to enter a market order on instrument 2 etc... ?

All the 4 instruments have their own DOM window.

If you know of such a program please let me know, thanks

very good question : if its possible to do the hotkeys are windowrelated and noit only action-related.

would be a Q for Ray today !


a bit thinkin out of the box :


-- we will have a tablet (ipad or whatever is coming in the future) and place one specal Order-app / Button-app per intrument on the screen to be able to enter + close positions via the tablet (by touching) for diff instruments.

each Order-app we open we can link to one instrument and each app has .... lets say 4 or 6 buttons. (enter close reverse .... )

the whole stuff is linked to our NinjaTrader, per USB or wireless


stopping this short first Brainstorm here before its running out of control

i am shure more ideas will come here & maybe some real good coders will be influenced
by these visionary lines

I found a program who could do this

AutoHotkey - Free Mouse and Keyboard Macro Program with Hotkeys and AutoText

Problem solved, it can detect a window and put the focus on it, and insert a key who is than programmed as a hotkey (in the trade software) to enter a market order.
