Working with widget groups

After you create a widget group, you can use tabs within the group as well as minimize the group like it was a single widget.

Creating a widget group

To create a widget group:

  1. Open the widgets you want to put into a group.

  2. Right-click in the title bar of a widget, and select Create widget group.

  3. Drag the widget next to another widget, matching the edge color.

    The two widgets are combined into a single widget.

  4. Move the new grouped widget to the desired location.

Saving a custom widget

To save a custom widget:

  1. Create a widget group with the desired widgets. In this case, you create a group from the Market Grid, Order Ticket, and Order Book widgets, as shown.

  2. In the custom widget, right-click in the title bar and select Save as custom widget from the menu.

  3. In the Save Custom Widget dialog, enter the following information for your custom widget:

    • Name for the widget, which is used in the widget title bar and in the Widgets menu.
    • In which search results you want the custom widget to appear.
    • Which icon you want to represent your custom widget.

    • Click Save Widget.

  4. If you want this widget to appear as an icon in search results, set it as a favorite in the Widgets menu.

Minimizing widgets in a widget group

In the widget group, right-click in the widget you want to minimize, and select Minimize Panel from the menu.

The selected widget collapses into a bar.

To restore the widget, click on the minimized widget bar.

Removing a widget from a widget group

In the widget group, right-click in the widget you want to minimize, and select Pop-out Panel from the menu.

The selected widget reverts to a separate widget, leaving the rest of the widget group intact.
