Enhancements to Chart order entry panel

this is a copy of the suggestion originally made under MCDT forum thread here:[ http://www.multicharts.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=8163&p=38168#p38168]( http://www.multicharts.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=8163&p=38168#p38168)
I played with some ideas using copy & paste and came up with
suggestions shown on the picture (see attached). It's self-explanatory, but I
should make couple of comments:
Basically the picture shows two main ideas:
Integration of Command line functionality right into the Order Panel to
allow immediate access. The reason is simple: The side order panel
integrates so well into the interface that it's logical to a do
everything form this "dashboard". On multi-monitor set-ups this will
make everything handy without the need to go and look for that toolbar
on the monitor #n.
2. Please consider displaying Bid, Ask, and
Last prices next to Buy/Sell/Market Buy & Sell buttons to make
information available immediately and intuitive. Here again the word
"dashboard" comes to mind. The color of Last Price changes according with
Up/Down tick, some examples are provided. Trying to stretch the idea
even futher, little tick arrows can be used also to display the dynamics
of Bid and Ask.
Thanks for considering these improvements.

The chart order entry panel should not only display Bid, Ask, and Last prices, but also BidSize and AskSize. Both values are very important to make a good trade decision because market liquidity can have negative influence on the trade execution.
Please also add the option to display depth of market (DOM) on the bottom of the chart order entry panel. It can help to make a better order entry decision. A separate DOM window may hide essential parts of the chart window.

"Trying to stretch the idea even futher, little tick arrows can be used also to display the dynamics of Bid and Ask." For me this is also very important.
