    Scripted access to chartTrader Properties, like AutoScale

    Is there a scripted method to access the chartTrader properties? In particular I am looking to be able to add a toggle that adjusts the chartTrader AutoScale property from the chart trader window.

    Hello b.j.d,

    You can access the Chart properties like autoscale. The ChartTrader its self does not have public properties that can be accessed but you can access the WPF elements in the chart trader to get their values.

      Unfortunately, those are only the Chart window Properties, does not include the properties you see if you right click in the chart trader frame and popup Properties.

      I was hoping there would be a similar way to access the ChartTrader properties.

      The AutoScale is either a property of the Indicator or the ChartTrader (for including orders in the autoscaling).

      In saying this, I just realized I could probably work around not having access by creating my own indictor that Dynamically sets it's own Scale based on order boundaries (or not), but subscribing to orders and all that just to do this functionality is a bit overkill.
