Ribbon menu bar

Ribbon bar control provides a flexible way of organizing all of the functionality in CandleScanner:

  • The entire application functionality is accessible from a single place
  • The Ribbon in CandleScanner is divided into the tabs HOME, DATA and VIEW. These tabs are permanently visible
  • There is also tab which is shown contextually: BACKTEST
  • When the users click on a tab, they are presented with the ribbon groups such as New Window or Active Window in the HOME tab

Tabs which are shown only contextually improve CandleScanner’s usability. When a user is working with the chart document, the BACKTEST tab is hidden. This is useful, because in the context of a chart document none of the actions available in that tab are relevant. When a user opens a new backtest document or switches to an already opened backtest document making it active, the BACKTEST tab appears. When a user switches back to the chart document, the BACKTEST tab disappears. The HOME tab is available at all times.
