With NinjaTrader 8, it’s possible to build custom drawing tools that monitor mouse location and clicks in relation to price bars. This unlocks unlimited possibilities in the creation of new drawing tools. We can also track mouse events within an indicator.
- Mouse hover logic can be used to display extra information about a bar. We typically mark the signal bars with arrows. We can hide additional details about the signal until the user will rolls their mouse over the bar. This removes clutter text from the chart that otherwise would need to be displayed at all times.
- Mouse click logic can be used to create mini buttons on the chart for adjusting indicator details on the fly.
- Be as creative as you want. Literally anything is possible when it comes to indicator or drawing tool development!
