Drawing Tool Toolbar V3.5 NT8b11 5 *
Drawing Tool Toolbar V3.5 NT8b11

Critical fix V3.5. Please remove all previous versions from your charts before installing, then reboot NT8.

*As of NT8 beta 11 this is functional but may need updating in the future. So please be patient. The toolbar still has minor bugs (see ** section at the bottom) so please recheck here for new updates from time to time. Please let me know if you are having any unusual issues, since it is working for most users. Since we are all still learning the intricacies of NT8 , this toolbar is a project in progress

Make sure you extract the zip file first or it won't import! When you download the zip file it will still be named V1....this is a forum issue....but you will find the updated version inside. Inside you will find instructions and icons to use. Read the instructions carefully or you will have icons missing etc.

Displays functioning drawing tool icons on the left of the chart.

* Accesses drawing tools via hot keys.

* The user can select which drawing tool icons are to be displayed.

* Set icon size from small to large.

* Appropriate drawing tools have a drop-down color palette.

* Toolbar width automatically adjusts to the height of the chart to accommodate the icons.

* If you can code: You can add your own custom drawing tools with comments to help you with insertion.

Coding examples:

* Multi-dimensional arrays
* Working with grids/wrap panels
* Windows and NT8 menus
* Adding bitmap images to a menu
* Using virtual keystrokes to activate hot keys
* Accessing drawn objects and manipulating their properties.
* Parsing string values

Version 2 is also included. It is now superseded by V3 but included for code examples using buttons instead of menus.

A big thank you to Chelsea Bell @ NinjaTrader for the toolbar structure sample. This toolbar had to be completely re-engineered for Windows Presentation Foundation.

As always, please send me a personal message if you have a bug, query or request.

Update history and potential problems:

Update V3.5 July 1 - Critical Fix: Fixed some termination issues from V3.3.

Update V3.4 June 26 - Stopped the toolbar from hijacking indicator-created drawing objects.

Update V3.3 Fixed Andrews Pitchfork channel colors.
Added complete removal of objects upon termination.

** Known issues reported, which I will endeavor to fix:

1. Issues with tabbed charts. Toolbar replicates itself when using tabbed charts.
2. Drawing tools will not change color on a tabbed (behind) chart.
3. Arc will not custom paint an area color. (Probably NT8 bug).
