    NT File Dialog Control

    Is it possible to use the NT File Dialog?

    I am saving and loading AddOn template files, and have been using the Win32.OpenFileDialog, which works fine, but would like to use the NT dialog which is more compact and matches the app style.

    Hello aslane,

    You could use the following to browse for files or create a path to save a file:


    Code:
    NinjaTrader.Gui.Tools.LoadingDialog.LoadingDialog loadingDialog = new NinjaTrader.Gui.Tools.LoadingDialog.LoadingDialog()
    {
             Owner = ChartControl.Parent as Window,
             FileFilter = "xml Files (*.xml)|*.xml)",
             Caption = "MyPicker",
             ActionButtonText = "Select File",
             Directory = NinjaTrader.Core.Globals.UserDataDir,
             IsFullBrowsingAllowed = true,
             FileAction = FileAction.Save //or Open
     };
    
     bool? result = loadingDialog.ShowDialog();
     Print(loadingDialog.FileName);

    I look forward to being of further assistance.

        This is working well, but have a question. When the file is selected, Ninja is playing a sound when the dialog is closed. I think it is working correctly, as there are no logs or messages. Is there any way to disable that sound? Looked thru properties, but did not see anything obvious. Not a big deal, just a nicety.

          Hello aslane,

          Thank you for the reply.

          I looked through the properties here as well however I don't see anything specifically that would be used to toggle that. I also don't see any errors here to better understand why that may be playing a sound. Unfortunately this is not documented so I don't have much more information on this control that I could provide.

          I look forward to being of further assistance.
