"Auto Trading Enabled - Chart"

Support Request:

I am comfortable using the study "Spreadsheet System for Trading" including sending orders live and simulated. I have created a keyboard shortcut for "Auto Trading Enabled - Chart." Currently, I am using this keyboard shortcut to turn auto trading on and off for each of 16 individual charts as all other settings are "on" for auto trading.

Is there a way of getting a button (or something similar) in view on a chart that I can left click to turn "Auto Trading Enabled - Chart" on and off? A button on the chart that turns green when on, and red when off, with a simple left click would be fantastic. Is this possible?

The way I am doing it now is risky and too slow with multiple charts. And, there is no visual on the chart to confirm auto trading is on.

P.S. I am the guy who requested "Move Targets to Price" and I use that feature everyday to quickly get out of trades that are not going well, at my prices, rather than using a market order. The way it is coded is far better than I imagined. THANK YOU!

Yes this is generally possible by using the Control Bar button for this command:

You can also change Control Bar button properties:

In "Customize Control Bar 2" >> "Available Control Bar Commands" >> "Trade" I can find "Auto Trading On/Off | AT" (which toggles "Auto Trading Enabled - Global" on/off) but I cannot find "Auto Trading Enabled - Chart."

Is "Auto Trading Enabled - Chart" somewhere else or can it be added to "Available ... Commands?"

Thank you for your efforts.
