    What is the menu item corresponding to the "trades" button in the tool bar?

    How can I disable the "Rapid Order Entry" section from a page?

    Thanks.

    On the main menu, select : Configure / View / Layout Manager
    then Edit the Default layout / select the Tab "Rapid Order Entry" and uncheck the box "Show Window"

    Thank you very much. That's flexible powerful design.

    How about accessing the "trades" from menu?

    What isn't clear? Click the trades button and a window pops up with executions which you can view, print, sort, summarize, etc.

    The "trades" UI isn't clear to me. apology for my being picky or ignorance. The thing is this. Every toolbar button should have a corresponding menu item in a pull-down menu. This permits the user to access the function when he or she disables the toolbar button or the whole toolbar. For example, the "account" button in toolbar is corresponding to the "account" item in the "view" menu.
    Somehow, I would not bring up "trades" from menu.

    By the way, let me ask more. Every menu item should have a hot key associated with it. If there is no default, then the hot key manager should allow the user to customize.
    TWS should be consistent on this.

    Hope this helps. Thank you.

    Okay, it's "executions" under the view menu.

    Isn't it obvious, but a different name, not as consistent as IB is.

    thanks.
     
  9. do you use the default combo ?

    have you experimented ?

    switching back and forth is confusing

    for me :p
