JimDandy Control Panel
This handy tool has over 30 functions!
Instead of having to right-click to open menus to get to the settings, just click the mouse instead. If you spend as much time looking through charts as I do, you will love this little tool! It takes some of the aggravation out of your trading.
With a single click you can show/hide the following elements:
- Bid Line
- Ask Line
- Period Separation Lines
- Trade Levels
- Line Chart
- Zoom In
- Zoom Out
- Toggle Chart Shift and
- Auto Scroll
- Disable/Enable Trade Parameter Dragging, so that you don't accidentally move a Stop Loss, Take Profit or Pending Order
- Navigate to Beginning or
- End of Chart or
- step forward
- step backward
- Choose from 9 different timeframes (especially useful if you have an Apple machine with no home, end, or page up/down buttons)
Display the following data:
- Current local time
- Server time
- It will let you know if you have disabled your AutoTrading. The server time will flash red.
- Easy to position on the chart with the corner handles and the side, top and bottom handles.
It will remember where you left it when you re-open it.
Don't underestimate the power of this little panel. It contains over 1 200 lines of code.
For instance, when you drop the control panel on a H4 chart that has the Period Separators, Volumes and Chart shift engaged, the control panel will be initialized with the buttons that control the H4, Sep Lines, Volume and Chart Shift in the pushed position to reflect what settings are already active on the chart.
With version 1.00 all buttons initialized un-pushed until the user clicked on them. This was sometimes confusing and made it harder to discern the charts current settings at a glance.
