It seems most of the time when the window is active (me clicking on it), the hot key does not work. But I click on another window (outside of Sierra), then come back to the window, it registers the click?

I hate to keep asking for favors -- but in light of above, would it be possible to add a context menu item to the right-click menu? So I can just right-click and hit 'Upload to bmcharts' type thing?

Unless you have a fix for the issue I've tried it on multiple charts and seems to happen consistently.

I am using 917.

1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.

The issue is I only read key state when the study i called. (as oppose to register a key handler - which would be what I would do in the "global" solution, but when its added many times I didnt want to have keyhooks lying all over).

So if you hold the hot-key a little longer, on the initial press (like 0,5s) it should go through.

I can add a menu too, and I will see if I can handle a keyhook in a nice way from different studies but i am a bit afraid its going to be a mess, unless i have one global hook that handles all charts...

OK that makes sense, I will hold longer.

Thanks, let me know once done and I will send update notifications.

Mike

A new version is available in the download section.

Added:
- Map a mouse button to start the capture and upload.

The mouse button can be left,right,middle and x button 1 and x button 2 (these are the two extra buttons often available on mice, useally operated by the thumb).

The mouse button can have a modifier key, so you can choose ctrl as modifier and left button as mouse, will activate the capture and upload with ctrl-left click.

If the mouse buttons are used an explicit left click to gain focus is *not* needed, so if you map the middle button a press of the middle button is enough to start the capture/upload.

If you keep holding the shortcut key or mouse-activation button the capture/upload will be repeated (one at a time, sequentially).

The study reads the shortcuts/hot-buttons in the study, so it the key/button is read when the study is called (this is opposed to register a hook and receive input even when the study is not called by sierra). The interval at which the study is called is configurable in sierra, it defaults to 500ms (its a global setting) - it can be modified in global settings -> general settings.

If after some time of usage we find its annoying I will change to a global hook, adding the benefit that any window on the screen can captured by the hot key (if chosen to) as the hotkey is not limited to the study.

@Big Mike, can you send notifications.

My chart interval is set to 50ms, does this explain why I was having difficulty?

No, mine is 50ms, but when a chart window gets focus, there seems to be a slight delay in sierra before it calls the study the first time. Since its all one thread I am guessing its doing some housekeeping with the focus.change which holds up the calling of the study for a short while.

if you hold the key a short while, I assume it goes through?

When I use the scrollbars in a chart, I am getting all the keypresses that never worked queued up all at once, and about a zillion screenshots sent all at once...

I think the hot key feature is not working.
