Currently, it is possible to write custom indicators & studies within MC.NET but I wish to be able to write complete Add-Ins within MC.NET similar to Add-Ins in Microsoft Office. That means, I wish to be able to write extensions which can add custom menu items, tools bars & tool bar icons, custom context menu entries, custom panels similar to the chart trader panel, custom additions to the trade bar & chart trader panel and so on. Such Add-Ins should be able to have access to all symbols and symbol data in the databases, to all broker profile settings, and to all other data in QuoteManager. MC.NET should also get an Add-In administration / management window. It could be part of the Preferences window or accessible by a new menu item. So Add-Ins would not be restricted to single charts (as indicators & studies are) but would be global extensions within MC.NET. Add-Ins should also be able to listen on MC.NET events such as new symbol data coming in, mouse & keyboard events, transactions events (order fill, cancel & modifations), broker connection status changes, and so on.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Using MC.NET 8.5 I do not see a way to add global extensions (Add-Ins) in .NET currently.
