    How to channel NT/popups into a collection

    Hello,

    I am using NinjaTrader 8 for Interactive Brokers and I am looking for a way to hide popups shown by NinjaTrader but actually also by Trader Workstation and e.g. channel them into a collection instead.

    These popus are of various types, and include, for example, notifications:
    - about received news bulletins
    - about order rejection
    - that an order was accepted outside trading hours and will be executed as soon as trading resumes
    - other less frequent notifications I do not remember exactly

    I would like to handle these through code and ideally prevent them from poping up on screen (which they currently do in both NT8 and TWS).

    Thank you,

    Libor

    Hello,
    Thank you for writing to the support team.
    There are no documented or supported methods of interfacing with an external program such as TWS. We do have a large ecosystem available to help you with programming logic questions.
    You can contact a professional NinjaScript Consultant who would be eager to create or modify this script at your request or assist you with your script. The NinjaTrader Ecosystem has affiliate contacts who provide educational as well as consulting services. Please let me know if you would like our business development follow up with you with a list of affiliate consultants who would be happy to create this*script*or any others*at your request. I can submit a feature request to add the ability to suppress notifications and channel them in a programmatic way with NinjaScript if you wish.

    Please let us know if we may be of any further assistance.

      Hello,

      no, thanks. This is really not about TWS but about NinjaTrader 8. I can live with TWS poping things up,
      What I would like though is to not have NT replicate those popups, and that is the core of my enquiry.

      Can you please advise?

      Thank you,

      Libor

          Thank you very much for your swift response, Chris.

          Let me rephrase this just to make sure I understand correctly: NinjaTrader provides no mechanism, via NinjaScript or otherwise, of intercepting the messages it receives from TWS and that it (=NinjaTrader) replicates in form of popups.

          Is that true?

          Thank you,

          Libor

            Hello,
            Thank you for the reply
            There are no means to do this in NinjaScript or through NinjaTrader configuration but you can do so through the TWS platform.
            You may follow the steps in my previous post to suppress the warning messages being sent to NinjaTrader. File>Global Configuration>API>Precautions uncheck what you do not want to see.
            If there is anything else I may assist with please let me know.

              Hi Chris,

              thank you again for your prompt response.

              Would it be possible to log this as an enhancement request for consideration during roadmap planning?

              If yes, and in case more specifics are needed from me, I will provide a brief spec sheet describing the desired functionality.

              Thank you,

              Libor
