All data grids found throughout NinjaTrader are customizable.



Data Grids

With a data grid you can:


Resize and hide columns
Export data to Excel
Save data as a file
Email the data as an image
Print data
Search data



Right Click Menu

Right mouse clicking within any data grid will bring up a menu with several grid actions. You may want to export your execution history to Excel for further analysis as an example. Simply go to any grid displaying execution history, right mouse click and select the Grid menu followed by the menu item Export to Excel...




Moving Columns

To adjust the order of columns within a data gird, left mouse click on the column title and drag it to the location you wish to place the selected column. Two red arrows will appear above and below the column title (see image below) showing where the column will now be located. Release the mouse button to place the column in the new location.


Note: Dragging a column outside of the window will remove the column from the data grid.




Grid Properties

Selecting the Properties menu item of the right mouse click menu will open a grid properties window. In this window you can choose which columns you wish to show (make visible). Any column name with a check-mark next to it will be visible and un-checking a column name will take the column out of the data grid.
