Desktop Shortcuts Bar

In the top of the desktop shortcuts bar there is a "hide/show shortcuts bar" button. You can hide the shortcuts bar to save some space on the screen.

In the bottom there are three buttons: "Frames", "Tools" and "Web Pages". Single click on one button will change the content of the desktop shortcuts bar. If you press the "Frames" button for instance, the content will contain buttons that links all the module types in the application. Single click on that button will create a new frame of that type.

The "Frames" section contains links to every module of this application:

News, Time & Sales, Ticker, Advanced Options, Quote Board, Charts, Points and Figure Charts, Spread Charts, Fixed Quote Pages, Depth Of Market, Price Ladder, Options Chain, eINFOline, Quotes Monitor, Working Order Monitor, Position Monitor, Order Ticket, Orders & Positions, Broker Workstation, Account Information, Order Activity Log and Options All Months.

For example you can create a new "Chart" frame by single click on the "Charts" button. The frame will be created as a new internal frame.

The "Tools" section contains links to the following tools:

Alarms, Indicator Builder, Change Contract Month, Symbol Search, Spark Chat and International Quotes.

The "Web Pages" section contains links to the following web pages:

Weather, USDA Grain/Lives Reports, Financial Audio Archive, Agricultural Audio Archive, Grains Audio Archive and Futuresline.

Starting with version v1.2.5 you can customize the shortcuts bar. To expand the workspace choose small icons and a small width for the shortcuts bar like in the picture from the right.

You can add or remove items from the shortcuts bar if you make a right click on the "Desktop Shortcuts Bar". After this, the "Customize" option will appear (see the figure at the right). If you click on it, the "Desktop Shortcut Bar Dialog" will open. To see how you can customize the shortcuts bar click here.

Frame's Buttons

These are the buttons from the top of the frame, the right side.

From the first button you can hide the title bar, to save some space on the screen, it will change into "Show title bar". If you want to see the title bar again keep the cursor on the top of the frame a few seconds. The number of seconds can be set from the Properties dialog.

The second button "Switch to persistent frame" will change the frame in a persistent frame. A persistent frame is a frame that is shown in all workspaces. This will change into "Switch to regular frame" from where you can set the frame to be a normal frame. A normal frame is a frame attached to it's workspace. A persistent frame will have at the end of the title name "- P", from persistent.

The third button will change the frame into an external frame, this button will change into "Switch to internal frame" that will do the reverse operation.

The last ones are the three standard frame buttons: "Minimize", "Maximize/Restore" and "Close".

Workspace Panel

The Workspace panel contains one or more workspaces. You can change the order of the workspaces in the workspace panel by drag-and-drop. On logout, if you save the settings, the order of the workspaces will be saved too.

Workspaces are named by default: "Workspace 1", "Workspace 2", ... and so on. You can change the name of a workspace using double click on the workspace name.
