The Ticker Toolbar is located at the top of the screen, above the Order Entry Bar and below the main Application Toolbar (take a look at Application Layout) and it allows you to perform different Ticker-specific actions by pressing the buttons that will be presented below. As explained in the linked page, please note that these toolbars may be hidden.
By pressing this button you will open the Contract Lookup Dialog. In order to read more about how to use this tool, please click here.
This button opens the same Ticker Properties dialog that can be displayed by pressing the Alt + P key combination while the frame has the focus. In order to read a detailed presentation of each tab and setting from this dialog, please click here.
This will open a web browser and display video instructions related to the Ticker frame (if applicable; not all topics are covered).
By using this button you can open the Ticker-related Help files. You can open the same by pressing the Alt + H key combination.
When you open a Ticker frame in the current workspace, you will observe that a specific toolbar will be added to the right side of the Application Toolbar. The main and the frame-specific toolbars are delimited by a double-line separator.
It is also possible that your screen size doesn't accomodate all the icons belonging to the Ticker toolbar at the same time. In order to have access to the hidden icons, you just need to press the button.
If you hide the main Application Toolbar, your frame-specific toolbar will be also hidden. In order to read about how to hide or unhide these toolbars, please click here.
In order to customize the Ticker Toolbar you need to right-click on it, select Customize and the Ticker Toolbar Properties dialog will be shown.
You can also open this dialog if you go to the main menu, select Ticker and Customize Toolbar from the bottom of the menu. When your buttons are hidden (as described in the About the Toolbar section) you can also use the last Customize... item from the menu that appears when pressing the button.
The same dialog can be triggered by double-clicking the vertical lines from the beginning of the frame-specific toolbar (please take a look at the image on the right).
From the Ticker Toolbar Properties you can add, remove and reorder the displayed items on your Ticker Toolbar.
You can also change the icons' glow color by pressing the button and selecting the color of your choice.
