    Change Z-order without using the mouse

    Hi

    Is there an official way in NT8 to change the z-order without using the scroll wheel on the mouse? I like to use my laptop when trading but when I do I'm unable to change the z-order the conventional way.

    I know this feature has been requested for a few years (and apparently was added to the feature development list for NT7) so I'm hoping this has finally been implemented in NT8.

    I notice there are a couple of vendors who have manged to add a button to their indicators that allows you to quickly and easily change the z-order with their indicators. Disco Trading have this on their Range Volume Profile indicator for NT7 and NT8 so I know it can be done.

    My question is can this be done a conventional way or do you need to use some advanced or unsupported coding to do this.

    I would appreciate any help from NT support on how to do this (if you know how).

    Thanks

    Hello fredrey,

    I am not aware of any way to change the z-order of an object without using the mouse. On a laptop this would be the scroll gesture on the trackpad.

    I am happy to submit a feature request on your behalf to allow the z-order to be set for a chart object without the mouse, would you like to submit this?

    It is up to the NinjaTrader Development to decide if and when a feature request will be implemented.

      Hi Chelsea

      Yes please submit this as a feature request.

      Obviously the z-order can be changed by creating a button to do it but it's going to require some out of the box thinking.

      If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them

      Thanks

          Maybe, when something is click-selected on the chart, a small up/down button can be displayed in the bottom right corner of the axis, similar to the fixed 'F' at the top right corner. a feature like that could be turned on by people who use a laptop. Just an idea.
