2.2 - Empty Tabs & Opening Symbols

Empty Tabs

You may wish to add empty Content tabs. These can be used to either display new stocks selected by symbol or to display scanners.

You can add a Tab using the Add icon (). The added tab will be appended to the far right of the tab selector.

Opening Symbols

In order to get the stock information about a company you must know its exact ticker symbol for a given company, henceforth referred to simply as symbol.

There are multiple ways to display the information about symbol on the Main Screen:

  • If no tabs are open, simply enter the symbol in the search box and press Enter or click on the magnifying glass () on the Content View Header
    • Note: pressing on this icon while a tab is selected will replace the current symbol for any given tab
  • Add a Tab using the Add icon () and then select the symbol by using the search field as explained above

Additionally you may change the symbol on the current tab in one of the following three ways:

  • Double clicking on the tab head will prompt you for a new symbol
    • Note: this option will only be available when the tab is docked to the main window.
  • Double clicking on the symbol in the Content View Body will prompt you for a new symbol
  • Entering a new symbol on the search field will prompt you on whether you wish to replace the current symbol with the entered value
    • Note: this option will only be available when the tab is docked to the main window.

Opening symbols is also available from any widget that displays a list of symbols. They may be opened simply by double clicking on the symbol on the listing. The resulting symbol tab will be appended to the far right of the tab selector.

Note: double clicking on any field other than the symbol name will have no effect

New symbol tabs are open in "Full View" mode by default, which displays all the information widgets in the available space.

Note: clicking on the "Full View" button will clear the screen of its active widgets or resize widgets to match the size of the Content View Body.

Note: any widget may only be added to the Content View Body only once per tab
