Default NTB Chart tabs


On the Chart TABS the small "x" to close the tab is too easily clicked when changing tabs. Add a prompt to confirm closing tab when the small "x" is clicked on.

Hello eagleslife,

Thank your for writing in.

To enable the close prompt on tabs or window close, please do the following steps:

On the Control Center, go to Tools and select Options.
Select the General topic.
Check the Confirm on window or tab close under the Preferences.
The following link is to the NinjaTrader 8 Help Guide for the General Properties: http://ninjatrader.com/support/helpG...al_section.htm

Default Suggestion

Set the default to Enabled when the NT8 is first installed. It will save a lot of people the frustration of accidental closure of tabs. I've spoke to numerous people who missed the option setting as I did.

I received the tracking ID for the request of making the default setting for "Confirm on window or tab close" to be enabled. That tracking ID is SFT-1229.

Thank you for the feature request.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
