Keep scaling high with customers Dhan. Great going.


Small but very useful enhancement!



Hi @Naman

Nice addition!

It would be great if following can be also accommodated.

Let’s say, in the left side pane watchlist script1 is selected and in the right side pane chart of script1 is opened.

Now, if user presses down arrow and selects script2, it should load the chart of script2 in the right side pane.

Was very much needed. This will surely reduce time in shuffling tabs and buttons on PC and make analysis and placing trade way easier. The shortcuts made are too easy to remember. Thanks Team Dhan for this enhancement.

Keep growing. :+1:


Hi @Naman

First thanks for this feature for Dhan Web. It is amazing. However the search which we do by typing script name needs to be improved. Like if I type 17800 in TV search it gives results but in direct dhan web search it doesn’t.

Second Can you extend this keyboard shortcut feature on TV as well?

Thanks for highlighting and requesting this. We will add the search functionality for numbers as well. Currently this is for alphabets.

Also, has all the tradingview keyboard shortcuts. List is same as you have pasted above.

Hope this helps!

Thanks @Naman

Can you also look into this feature request as well Feature Request TV and Dhan Web

Hi @Naman
A great feature indeed. Is there any way to edit or disable the shortcuts?

Hi @The_Waker

Thanks for your suggestion. We will evaluate this on adding a toggle for keyboard shortcuts.
