"Hide/Show studies" Buttons Study

hi all

this is the very simple example of using ACS Tool

four buttons for hiding/showing a group of studies

it's possible to change a name and a description for a button "on the fly"

also one could defines another action for a button by changing the code

ASC Tool 1..4 are using in this example: rght bttn click on a Toolbar -> Customize Toolbar # -> Tools -> ACS Tool 1..4 >Add<


Quoting 
Only one ACS Tool ToolBar button can be active at any time, so turning on an ACS Tool ToolBar button also effectively turns off the currently active ACS Tool ToolBar button.


Quoting 
Keyboard shortcuts can be set up for any of the 16 ACS Tool # ToolBar buttons. To set the keyboard shortcuts, select Global Settings >> Customize Keyboard Shortcuts . The ToolBar buttons are listed in the ACS Tool Keyboard Shortcuts list.

@slickiam, I have meant to say thanks for doing this but have not been able to give time yet to looking at the study. I have been meaning to look at this new functionality in SC but until now have not, so thanks for calling its use to my attention!

@slickiam
Thank you for sharing the code. This is exactly what I was looking for.

One question – do you know if it is possible to control the same studies in several charts in the same chartbook? I have 4 charts with studies like volume by price and would like to find the way how to hide/show all the histograms in all the charts through the same button.

Do you know if this is possible with the ASC Tool?
Thank you!

hi

I've tested it by changing sc.Input[].SetStudyID() -> sc.Input[].SetChartStudyValues()

It works good for the current chart but doesn't for all charts because of inactive chart windows.

@slickiam - Thanks for this study. Appreciate it.

Wondering how you have done to populate only 4 buttons on the chart itself. One way I know of is to disable all the other buttons in the main tool bar and move them on to the chart. Is there any other way to let the main tool bar in it's original place and place few custom buttons on the chart?

PS: From whatever I could see - it's not possible to "split" main toolbar and place buttons in multiple places. But curious if you have done it this way

Thanks

@crazybears - Yes, wanted to leave the main tool bar as is on top of the window ( default location ) but have custom tools on the "chart". At present I don't think it is possible but thought of asking.

Thanks

to have more tool bar:

window-> ToolBars -> select the tool bar number you want display 1 , 2 ,...,8

clik on the corner of toolbar you want float and clik

to have only the buttons you need :

Global settings : Customize tool bar-> add remove buttons
