                                                   Making better use of multiple panes?

Howdy, everyone! I'm regularly working with multiple panes and two things are really starting to bug me:

1. The separation between each pane only seems to be about one pixel tall.
2. Every pane has the date in the upper-left which I'd really rather put to better use.
3. I like having the pane title in the top-center. But it seems that all my data wants to go top-left to top-right.


Can any of these things be changed?

PS: Anyone interested in making a technical indicator that automatically marks up all the support and resistance lines on a stock? I've put some thought to it lately, and I think I've got some psuedocode that'll make some optimized selections.

Best Answer

1/ Even if it is one pixel tall, the selection is few pixels. This cannot be changed
2/ Date cannot be removed
3/ The chart title location and orientation is controlled by Windows and cannot be changed within QuantShare

An update:

I found a forum message from 2010 which allows you to remove the date from a pane... as long as you're willing to remove ALL the other text at the top and the buttons in the upper-left. Potentially useful, right?

UpdateSettings("Full Pane", 1);

I've got three panes (about 26 pixels tall each) that each provide a color-coded status of a custom indicator. With the line above, the chart's display is nice and clean and doesn't have any text writing over the indicators. I thought I'd pass this along in case anyone else might find some value from it.

PS: It looks like it also made it into an official post (in the screenshot, look at the area BELOW the price chart):

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
