I'm just wanting to link the quote sheet to a group of charts so that when I put focus on the symbol row in the sheet the charts switch to showing that symbol. That documentation seems to say that is possible only using the non-.NET version.

With the .NET version:
1) You can focus an open chart from a quotesheet by a right click on the symbol's row and then choosing a menu item, or by using Ctrl-ALt-I, or Ctrl-ALt-H. The chart must be sized because it will not Restore or Maximize it. If there is more than one chart open for the same symbol, it will only focus the lower-numbered chart number.

2) If there is no chart open for the symbol, it will open a default chart for that symbol but with no indicators. It cannot open a chartbook.

Here's the documdentation, but it is not very specific:

I think that is correct. The .NET version of the spreadsheet will eventually go away if you read thru the forum. It is being replaced with the non-.Net version, and all new functionality is only going into the non.Net version. If you use the spread sheet, then you should be using or transitioning to the non.Net.

Sierra Chart - Software Installation

The non.NET version will not be available until 2013, so probably not for another 12 months. Spreadsheets are not yet fully supported. OEC, T4, and Barchart not yet supported.

Ok. Thanks for clarifying that. From searching through the documentation, I was under the impression that the non-.NET version was missing alot of functionality compared to the .NET so I was using .NET. If they're moving away from .NET I'll change versions.

The ability to reorder the display sequence of the chart regions on the screen.
Currently the regions are displayed in numerical order from top to bottom of the screen with Region 1 always being the main price graph at the top. I would disparately like to sandwich my main price graph between a couple of studies.

Adjust Tool Values to Tick Size option would be honored for any region that is displaying a price graph not just the main price graph in region 1.

You can actually achieve this but before I say how, the downside is that the main chart will behave as a study, meaning that you will not be free to manipulate it as you would normally, for example, adding trendlines.

Anyway, play with the following if you wish:

Add the study called Bar (Overlay). Let it display in region 2 and the chart to overlay set to 1. This will display the chart in region 2.

Now go to the Chart Settings and set the Chart Type to Blank.

Now add a third study, drawing it in Region 1.

Now add a fourth study and display it in region 3.

Adjust the width of the regions as required.

I have NOT tested this in real-time but I cannot see why there would be any problems. I have just run a quick replay test and it looks fine. As I say, the limitation is that your chart is stuck in a sub-reqion. There is nothing stopping you adding further studies to that sub-region though.

Hope this helps.

Rob

Rob,
I had already tried the Bar (Overlay) study and that is when I found that Adjust Tool Values to Tick Size option didn't work outside of of the main price graph in region 1. Hopefully the folks at Sierra Chart will be able to remedy this one day soon. They certainly have already fixed a lot of issues since I have been using their fine product.

Does anyone by any chance know if there is a possibility to change the profit/loss calculation based on the bid/ask line instead of the last traded price? Because when scalping on m1 and m5 its kind of annoying having to monitor the bid/ask lines and DAX spreads change rapidly from 0.5 --> 1 points.

P/L after commissions

I'd like a "Show Profit/Loss After Commissions" input added to the Trading: Profit/Loss Text study.

It would only display in currency, and be based on the DPL if 'Include Open P/L in Daily P/L' is No, and be based on the NPL if 'Include Open P/L in Daily P/L' is Yes.

It would require two new Input Names/Values:
Show Profit/Loss After Commissions | Yes/No
RT Commission | currency value
