Does anyone know how the DOM was setup this was like in the webinar? Sierra Chart Platform Overview Q&A - YouTube

and im talking about the actual DOM window, setting the background to white is not an issue but how exactly did he manage to get the white text for the bid/ask columns enveloped in the green and red.. i.e the bid and ask look like actual column blocks with text inside.

Sitting here for an hour and trying to figure it out.

Btw i know that there is a program to setup hotkeys for Sierra chart but i was wondering if anybody ever had the issue of charting tools not having any hotkeys at all.

Thanks in advance

@Big Mike, would love to see what you (and other users) come up with, if there is a way we can share our DOM config files.

I'd like to just copy what that user has, if anyone knows who he is and get him to share the info.

@Big Mike

I've successfully copied the Users Settings (Colors) if that is what you needed, i will write down the color codes here for you and whoever else wants them. The RXXX GXXX and BXXX are going to be the values of the Red Green and Blue in the Graphic Settings when you are picking colors.

Trade DOM LastPrice/Quantity Background: R255 G255 B0
TradeDOM Grid: White , Width 1, Line Style: Dot
TradeDOM Buy Column Background: R0 G0 B128 (dont forget to hit the enabled checkbox)
TradeDOM Sell Columns Background: R151 G0 B0 (dont forget to hit the enabled checkbox)
TradeDOM Ask Background: R203 G224 B239
TradeDOM Bid Background: R146 G173 B194
TradeDOM Bid Depth Background: R0 G0 B225
TradeDOM Ask Depth Background: R223 G13 B13

Put following as white: TradeDOM Bid/Ask Depth Volumes, TradeDOM Sell Column Lines and Buy Column Lines.

Does anyone know what font/font settings are used in those examples also?

No idea unlike colors there is no equivalent to a digital colormeter for fonts But judging by the looks of it i'd say it looks like Arial Bold.

EDIT:

Actually.. it looks like Tahoma Bold, the 7's look identical.

For these custom colors, how do you enter/select them? I can only type 2 digits in the RGB boxes.

You should be able to just select the box and type the number. It won't let you type in greater than 255 though.

I can click in the box, delete what's already in there, but can't type more than 2 digits, just get an error sound after the 2nd digit.

Nice DOM josh....I was looking to move to just chart trading, but these new color configurations are just too sexy looking, lol . Is this the 'whole new DOM look' you were waiting for to come back to SC?

It's not quite the "whole new" look but it's what I was asking for as a good move towards making it competitive (versus other DOMs on the market). Quite nice actually.

You're doing something wrong, could you post a screenshot of where you are trying to type in numbers?

How about type your 3 digit number in notepad, then copy&paste to that field?

Something is very wrong, as that dialog is a standard windows dialog that any app can use. I have used it many times in apps, and have never seen anything like what you are talking about. It is almost like windows is preventing you from entering three digit numbers because you can not support the colors. Can you drag the color around on the color swatch and get the numbers to update to three digit numbers? If not, then something is wrong with your graphics subsystem.

You should be able to see the same behavior in other programs like paint. Bring up "paint" from your start menu, then on the ribbon, do edit colors, which will bring up the same dialog box. Does it work in paint?

Hmm, you are on to something. Yes, I can drag around on the color swatch and get the numbers to change to three digits, but I have the same problem manually typing them to three digits in Paint.

Are you using Windows XP? Is your system color set to 32-bit?

Did a quick goggle check and I think the issue is a font issue on your system. Here is a link, you will have to continue on your own:

Fix: Windows XP Choose Color Dialog Only Allows 2 Digits, Not 3 | a Tech-Recipes Tutorial

FYI, this was my google serach: "windows color edit dialog cannot enter three digit number"

I am on Win7 64, using 32bit colors, integrated intel graphics for the laptop screen, and nvidia quadro 1000m discrete for an external display. Thanks for the links/search, clearly a system issue on my end, will look for similar.
