Post From: New Control Bar to replace ToolBar and Status Bar

Version 1270 has been released with the new Control Bar.

This control bar is still under development and all functionality is not complete yet!

The most significant limitation is that the control bars that are displayed are currently shared for both the main Sierra Chart window and detached charts. This will be changed in the next day or two. Each window will have their own configuration for control bars.

If the above is going to be a significant problem for you, then please do not install version 1270!

We expect the most important development to be finalized by early next week and over the next couple of weeks, the remaining functionality to be to finished.

In response to post #5, we are thinking about this. Basically the considerations are making the Compact Tool Values Window adjustable and/or displaying the information on the chart. It is already possible to hide fields displayed in the Compact Tool Values Window.

With the new Control Bar, the "Status bar" which displays the data feed status can be added through Global Settings >> Customize ToolBars >> ToolBar # >> Available ToolBar Commands >> Special Items >> Status Bar.

And as we indicated, all of the buttons you will be able to customize the text, the foreground and background color, and use an optional icon. This is not yet ready but hopefully we can get this done in about two weeks.
