Post From: show/hide trade window

I cannot figure out how to have the trade window not on top. I need screen space and want to have it open, but want to hide most of it behind the chart with only a bit of showing. Then I can "pop" it when I need it, but when i don't it is not using screen space (I like my charts tightly together). The trade window does not have a 'menu' with 'window' on it. I have been trying to figure this out for some time now.

John, here's what I do. Add two buttons to your control bar. In my first photo, you'll see I have added a "OpenTW" Button. This opens an attached trade window to whatever chart I have active. You could use the "Open Trade Window" setting instead which I've highlighted in the second attached image if you don't want it attached to your active chart. The second button I have is to close the Trade Window (Close TW). This simply closes the Trade Window when you're done with it. Since they pop up instantaneously I wouldn't worry about it being open but behind a current chart. Just pull it up when you need it and close it when you don't.

Hope that helps...Scott
