For someone using Windows XP and Ninja 7 could you please make the following test and tell me if the data box closes in NT7 (it stays open in NT6.5).
1. Go to a chart and open the data box.
2. hold down the windows key and hit "m"
this minimizes all the open windows - see if the data box stays un-minimized.

Thanks!
PS the windows key is just to the right of the Ctrl key on my keyboard and has a little windows logo on it.

The data box is not a normal window therefore 2. will not work, a short cut to make it appear disappear is using Ctrl+d

An Alternative is using the show desktop icon

Hi Redratsal!

This is what happens in 6.5
I want to make sure it continues to happen in 7 before switching.

Thanks!

What a wonderful word.


Unminimize ...


I love it. Hot candidate for the "word of the year 2011".

Now I would think that if I minimize something, I make it as small as possible. Unminimize would be the reverse process that is to transform it to its original size.

You used the word "unminimized" to describe the fact that it was not minimized. This suggests that the minimization actually happened, before one one of Microsoft's or NinjaTrader's demons unminimized it back to its original size.

This concept is quite expandable. For example

- after a loss you can unminimize your trading accout
- a breakout can be described as the unminimization of the average range
- after a speculative bubble bursts the US government needs to unminimize public debt
- or you simply unminimize your weight by eating junk food

Congratulations!

Even though the verb used was "stay" and the state of being (the adverb) was "un-minimize"
I too would love my trading account to:
"stay" "un-diminished" !

Your use of un-minimize as the verb provides food for though....
--- perhaps if I un-minimize my account I can maximize it!!

(Could you to talk to the good folks at IB for me an explain it to them for me?!!

Thanks for the chuckle!

Being picked up on my grammar at a trading site makes the site feel unwelcome and unfriendly, and I feel less inclined to post here.

@aquarian1

Common aquarian1, evedently you don't know Fat Tails, bottom line it's your choice and you will be missing something.

As in any comunity there should be enough space for satire and sarcasm.
