For programming this "panel control" keep in mind the following (I am not a programmer). This is a verry good straight forward indicator and I think you can keep it that way also in the furture by means of a trick. There are only two possibillities: Chart not closed: keep it as it is; Chart closed and opened again single or as part of a profile: When there are no running trades: Keep it as usual When a trade is running on the chart: (Trick) read everything from the chart itself like "stop loss", "take profit" e.o. The trader gets an actual presentation of his trade and can play arround with it. Traders are normaly not interested anymore in settings when the trade is placed and running. I don't think its neccesary to save a lot data this way. The only problem I see is that possible more than one trade is runing on a chart.
