Pete, I know there is an import bar on the top of chart, but wondering if a code can be used to import a study set. Thank you!

"import bar on the top of the chart"???

I wish you had provided a screenshot with your question so I could see where that is located. I know these charts on Thinkorswim very well and I have never seen anything named "import bar". So that term must be something you made up? Because you didn't have a better way to describe it? Just poking around in the dark here trying to understand.

But aside from that I think I understand what you are asking. Which is that you would like to know if there is a way to import a "study set". Well I can tell you there is certainly no way to do that using any custom code. Thinkorswim does not allow any access to the user interface from within their programming language. So the direct answer to your question is no, it is not possible.

The only method available to users of Thinkorswim is to share the chart grid, which creates a specialized URL that you send to someone. Then the other person takes that specialized URL (we call it a "share link"), and opens it.

This process is explained in the following video:

That video focuses on sharing the entire workspace but it can be applied to many individual elements with the workspace as well, such as an individual chart or an entire chart grid.

I will be more specific so that you don’t have to waste any more time on this entire concept (speaking here of your own time, not my own). It is completely impossible to modify anything on Thinkorswim apart from the built-in settings already provided in the platform. We cannot write any code to affect changes to any element of the platform. The only thing we can do with code on Thinkorswim is to build custom chart studies, custom scans, and custom quote columns. Nothing more.
