EZYCHART INTERFACE AND UPGRADING
The EzyChart 6 screen consists of four main areas:
1. Ribbon MenuWe've incorporated the Windows Ribbon menu used in most Microsoft® Windows software since version 7. It gives an alternative to the old layered menus and toolbar's by exposing the user to the major features of an application through a series of tabs at the top of an application window. The software opens on the Home tab which displays some of the most common tasks.
If you are unfamiliar with the Ribbon we've also included a 'Classic Layout' option which will shrink the ribbon back to a menu and display the indicators as a two lettered button as in earlier versions of EzyChart. You can select this option by clicking the Classic Layout button on the Preference tab of the menu.
2. Stock Selection DockerThe Stock Selection Docker gives the user the ability to open individual stocks or groups of stocks. The top part of this window categorises your entire database into Markets; Groups, Security Types or Sectors whilst the bottom part lets you search for a particular stock from within these groups. When you select one of these groups the appropriate stocks will be filtered and displayed in the bottom table.
The Stock Selection images above show three different selections. The first one has All selected which means all the symbols you have in your database will be displayed in the table. The second image shows that the Australian Securities Exchange has been selected from the Market group. This filters the table so it only shows symbols from this exchange. The final image has All selected but BHP has been typed into the filter box. Due to this the table is only showing symbols which have BHP in the Stock Code or Stock Name field.
You can click on the arrow button next to this box to change how the stocks are filtered.
3. WorkspaceThe Workspace contains charts for any stocks or groups of stocks you have opened from the Stock Selection Docker. The default layout is set to tabs. A tab can consist of one stock or a group of stocks. If you choose to load a group of stocks into a tab then any indicators; drawing tools or text you add to the first chart will be displayed in all the preceding charts. If you want to add individual notes or drawing tools to a chart then you would load them into separate tabs.
This version of EzyChart contains a variety of indicators and drawing tools with more coming soon.
4. Workspace ToolbarThis toolbar allows the user to make changes to the currently selected chart/chart group in their workspace.
