Data Grid

Section 4: Data Grid

The Grid is the main section where users are able to view and interact with their trades.

  1. All trades are sorted by TradeDate.
  2. The current record is indicated by a small triangle to the far left of the record and by a blue background color.
  3. Columns can be resized by positioning the mouse cursor over the line between the columns in the column header row, holding down the left mouse button and dragging the line to the desired location.To print the grid in one page, you can hold down the left mouse button and drag the far right line to your wish location.

    In addition, TradeMax will resize your columns automatically when you select the Column Auto-Resize checkbox.

  4. Records can be sorted in ascending or descending order by clicking on any column header. For example, to sort by symbol in ascending order, click Symbol in the column header once and there will be up-arrow after Symbol. To sort in descending order, click Symbol twice and there will be a down-arrow after Symbol. To cancel the sorting, you can click Symbol the third time.
