A mahToolBar6

mahToolBar - Version 6

This version updates the code to includes several new icons for NT8 default Drawing Tools plus additional chart management tools. The mahToolBar6 indicator installs drawing tools icons in the NinjaTrader 8 Main Toolbar for a one-click drawing.

The early version of this indicator with selected tools used sample scripts from several people on this forum including ChelseaB, Jessie, and others, thank you all for your support.

There are other toolbar shortcut indicators available in public that install inside the main chart area, and that seems to be a waste of the chart real estate. The mahToolBar6 installs in the chart main toolbar to save chart space.

The indicator is programed to show a limited set of toolbar icons to prevent cluttering of the toolbar. I have included my favorites and the most frequently used draw objects by chart analysts. However, user may select any or all icons from the properties dropdown menu to include in the toolbar. Two icons (or tools) are very handy for changing the width or distance of the bars by simply clicking on the icons.

1. The Volume Profile drawing tool icon works only with the NT lifetime license.
2. Need to have the HorizontalRay Add-On Installed. It is included in the zip file.
3. Please see the required hot keys for Revision 6 below.
