Sierra Chart auto upload screenshot to bmcharts.com

I am hoping my friend @ktrader will come to the rescue once more

@vvhg has just made his NinjaTrader auto-screenshot capture tool, and I created a simple PHP handler on the backend to hold and serve the images.

I know Sierra Chart has a built-in option for using their server, but what I want is to use bmcharts.com and to have the bbcode output automatically put into my clipboard, without user interaction other than pressing the hotkey on the chart.

See thread:
https://futures.io/elite-circle/23967-screenshot-utility-ninjatrader-vvscreenshot.html

The code is there that shows the HTTP POST to bmcharts, it is very straightforward and could be used here as well.

I'd desire the ability to put this on all my charts, and then activate with a keypress like Alt-P for printscreen.

@ktrader, if you are up to this, please let me know

Mike

Okay, I can do that ...

I need a little info of how the post should look to upload - also I notice bmcharts supports a user can register, so i assume there are some kind of login for the user to have the image uploaded to their own vault - or is it part of the post?

No, I wrote a special handler. Look at the C# code provided by @vvhg, I will also PM you. It's very straightforward.

thx!

It is now available in the download section.

https://futures.io/download/vip_elite_circle/1295-download.html?view

This study, when added to a chart, will upload a screenshot to the chart to which it is added to bmcharts.

The hot-key is ctrl-alt-p

A url to the image on bmcharts is on the clipboard when the upload is finished, ready to paste into forum posts.

you have the option to:
- choose if a sound should be played when uploaded
- if the url to the image on bmcharts should be enclosed by
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

- choose if the caption of the window should be hidden while taking the screenshot.

The zip contains source cdoe (must be compiled with visual studio)

and screenshot.dll (i precompiled this for those who doesnt have visual studio) - just put it in the sierrachart data directory and the custom study will be available.

---

I am thinking its not very convenient to have to add it to each chart to be able to make a screenshot - if there are any interest I can make it to be a global process such that it will work with any window, regardless if a study is attached to a chart or not. It will also open to have the feature of assigning specific hotkeys to specific charts (so for instance ctrl-alt-1 screenshots and uploads one chart where ctrl-alt-2 does the same with another).

Hmm, ctrl-alt-p seems to be a built-in default for some fib drawing tool in Sierra. Not sure how to change it, will see if I can figure it out.
