MultiCharts .NET tutorials

Postby JoshM » 15 Jul 2015

Hello,

As you know, MultiCharts .NET is a great platform packed with terrific features. The advanced features from .NET further expand MultiCharts .NET's features, but they come at a price: PowerLanguage .NET can have a steep learning curve for non-programmers.

For a while now I'm writing programming articles that I hope make MultiCharts .NET more accessible and easier to understand for you. These articles can be found on TradingCode.net. Though I'm by no means an expert, I do hope that some of my work can be of value to you.

Happy learning & trading,

Just a quick word -- I bookmarked your site awhile back as being a helpful "getting started" resource, and seeing your post here, wanted to take a moment to drop a reply and give a heartfelt thanks -- you've saved me quite a bit of time in getting started on the right path.

I am way beyond the initial learning curve that most of these articles are aimed at, but even so they have saved hours and hours of time.

Thank you for the thanks, I really appreciate that. And I'm very glad that it saved you quite a bit of time.

But it's not good that most of the articles are too much beyond your learning curve. If you want, can you give an example of an article that's too complex and one that's easier to follow? Perhaps that can give me some ideas for how to make the articles more accessible.

I edited my original post and took that sentence out -- it was confusing and added no benefit. I meant to say I am already an expert C# coder and pick up APIs like MC rather quickly -- I am past the initial learning curve. Your articles are excellent and aimed at giving an introduction to a topic -- usually I'll end up having to go much, much deeper. But, even with a need to deep dive on topics, I have found your introductory articles to be helpful as they have made me aware of functionality that I didn't know about -- you have organized the site well and I discovered new functionality that I wasn't aware of. You have spent a lot of effort putting this in place, and I wanted to let you know that as a relative newcomer to the MC API, I found it to be a go-to resource. Thanks!

Hi Josh,

Thanks for your work! Could I suggest a topic of article?

How to set up Chart ToolStrip bar and how to turn on/off a signal's execution by clicking a button on the toolstrip.

Thanks!

Thanks Josh the content on your site is great for someone looking to make the jump to c#. I found it extremely helpful.

Is there any documentation/examples anywhere on passing data to the MMS scripts in .NET? More specifically the methods for the equivalent functions in Easy Language such as pmms_deny_entries_all(), etc.

The9000,

you can use the three build in portfolio trading strategies as a good starting point.
They are similar to the ones you can find in PowerLanguage MC.

Regards,

ABC

Thanks for your kind words.

I don't know of other documentation or examples for that, besides the couple of examples that are in MultiCharts .NET already. (It's on my to do list to write about, of course.)
