You have to grab the window handle and do a sendmessage to it, theres a free tool that can do it: SendMessage. (by sending the message SetWindowPos)

Just a bit more help please?

Tool

Hi there,

because i have also major chart visibility/position issues due to vmware displaying modes (at different monitor sizes and the unity mode) i plan a tool that can rearrange the windows according to sample templates controlled by keyboard shortcuts. It's a common problem so i'm wondering that no tools exists yet. Because my backtesting suite currently eat up all of my ressources i can't code the tool yet. Perhaps anybody other out there.

Save:
1. Enum all Ninja Windows and get Instrument Name/Bar Type/Timeframe from title caption; Position/Size in relation to total screen and individual monitor
2. Apply some "snap to grid" calculations
3. Save setting

Load:
1. Keyboard hookup + load setup from file
2. Search ninja windows by Instrument Name/Bar Type/Timeframe and apply Position/Size/Monitor

Other Stuff:
* Move all Windows into current view
* Arrange Windows (Windows like)
* Hide set of Windows
* Apply single "Snap to Grid" / Auto-Size function
--- manualy move X charts to screen into the vectors of screen - size doesn't matter
--- Enlarge the screens to auto fit the monitor

Hi Mike,

SendMessage i refered to earlier can only send a limited amount of messages and not the once we need ;(

To rectify the situation and my bad advice, i made a small sierra study that will recover your window

I attached the dll too..

This is quick and dirty so its not very userfriendle, heres how you do:

Find the handle with spy++

Convert the handle to decimal (windows calc have a programmer calculator that can do it).

Attache the attached study to the chart, it has one input the handle, but it has to be the decimal value of the handle not the hex one.

So a handle called 000812de would be 529118 in decimal, this is the value the study needs

Remove the study afterwards - if you dont remove it it will keep resize/reposition it

btw: i checked with a few of my sierra installation and the chartvalues window has disappeared in all of them, so it must be an update that have caused this.

--ktrader

 
Code
#include <windows.h>
#include "C:\Sierrachart\ACS_Source\sierrachart.h"

//#include "..\..\ACS_Source\sierrachart.h"

SCDLLName("My Custom Studies File Name")


SCSFExport scsf_TemplateFunction(SCStudyGraphRef sc)
{

		
	SCInputRef handle = sc.Input[0];
	if (sc.SetDefaults)
	{
		// Set the configuration and defaults
		
		sc.GraphName = "New Study";
		
		sc.StudyDescription = "Insert description here.";
		
		sc.AutoLoop = 1;
		handle.Name = "Handle";
		handle.SetInt(0);
		
		handle.SetDescription("window handle in decimL.");
		// During development set this flag to 1, so the DLL can be modified. When development is done, set it to 0 to speed up the function calling.
		sc.FreeDLL = 1;
	
	
		return;
	}

	
		HWND h = (HWND) handle.GetInt();
	if (h!=0)
		SetWindowPos(h,0,0,0,200,100,SWP_SHOWWINDOW);	
	
	// Do data processing
	
}

Heres a version that finds it automatically and moves it to the upper left corner with size 100,200


--ktrader

 
Code
#include <windows.h>
#include <tchar.h>
#include <iostream>
#include "C:\Sierrachart\ACS_Source\sierrachart.h"

//#include "..\..\ACS_Source\sierrachart.h"

SCDLLName("My Custom Studies File Name")


BOOL CALLBACK EnumChildProc(HWND hwnd, LPARAM lParam) {
	TCHAR title[500];
    ZeroMemory(title, sizeof(title));
	int x = GetWindowText(hwnd, title,sizeof(title)/sizeof(title[0]));
	if(_tcsstr(title, _T("Chart Values"))) {

		SetWindowPos(hwnd,0,0,0,200,100,SWP_SHOWWINDOW);	
	}

	return TRUE; 
}



SCSFExport scsf_TemplateFunction(SCStudyGraphRef sc)
{

		
	SCInputRef handle = sc.Input[0];
	if (sc.SetDefaults)
	{
		// Set the configuration and defaults
		
		sc.GraphName = "New Study";
		
		sc.StudyDescription = "Insert description here.";
		
		sc.AutoLoop = 1;
		handle.Name = "Handle";
		handle.SetInt(0);
		
		handle.SetDescription("window handle in decimL.");
		// During development set this flag to 1, so the DLL can be modified. When development is done, set it to 0 to speed up the function calling.
		sc.FreeDLL = 1;
		HWND chl = sc.ChartWindowHandle;
		HWND hwnd = GetParent(chl);
		EnumChildWindows(hwnd,EnumChildProc, 0); 		
	
		return;
	}

It might work with autohotkey

Save this as a .ahk file in a text editor (Notepad):

WinMove, BeginingPartofTheWindowTitle,,0,0,300,500

This will move the window to top left of the primary display and resize it to 300x500 pixels.
