open function question

Postby rst » 09 Aug 2012

How do I locate and open the source code in c# for SwingHigh and Pivot that are of type Function in MC.NET?
The editor does not redirect to their source once I (right)-click over these.
Is it more convenient to open the PowerLanguage.Function.* in Visual Studio Editor?
Whas assmbly reference should be added?

P.S. in the standard MC (using EL) I could see them in PowerLanguage Editor under functions and browse their source code.

Hello rst,

Unfortunately, functions source code cannot be seen at the moment. It will be possible in one of the future versions.

I believe the logic of the functions were all ported to c#, so if what you are interested in is the logic, review it in the multicharts PL editor.

It IS quite helpful to understanding how to extend these functions ( and to create our own ) to be able to peruse the source for the c# functions. It would also be important to know if the .net implementation of a function has side-effects or residuals that do not appear in the PL version (or vice versa).
