    Is there a way to override text color on chart trader?

    I know I'm in the dark skin which uses white font - but the gradient on the buttons - the text becomes hard see when using lighter colors (yellow/green).

    I'm not into messing around with skins - so I don't know if changing the font to DARK will change all font color, etc.. of if I can control the buy button separately from the sell?

    To the right in the image is the NT7 Chart Trader buttons with the same color and black text.

    *white theme uses white text too.

    There is not a UI property to control the font color, it is a member of the skin. You can change this in Documents\NinjaTrader 8\templates\skins\<SkinName>\BluePrint.xaml

    The key in reference is: FontControlBrush

    There is not a separate key for just the Chart Trader buttons. If you modified the color of the text of FontControlBrush , it would apply for every window which uses this key.

      Thanks - it was close.

      I turned everything Pink #FFCCCD
      But those chart buttons stayed the same (some form of light gray, like the other buttons).

      I'll poke around some more.

        found it

        As you mentioned in the file

        Documents\NinjaTrader 8\templates\skins\<SkinName>\BluePrint.xaml


        Code:
          <system:Double			x:Key="FontButtonHeight">15</system:Double>
          <FontFamily				x:Key="FontButtonFamily">Arial</FontFamily>
          <FontStyle				x:Key="FontButtonStyle">Normal</FontStyle>
          <FontWeight				x:Key="FontButtonWeight">Normal</FontWeight>
          <SolidColorBrush			x:Key="FontButtonBrush" Color="#FF000000" po:Freeze="true"/>
        I'll need to poke around some more to see if any other button labels turned black and are not visible... (neon yellow/green stand out).
