Intro video to MultiCharts

MultiCharts .NET

MultiCharts .NET combines best features of MultiCharts with robust potential of the .NET framework.

Main difference in MultiCharts .NET from regular MultiCharts is the ability to develop in .NET languages, such as C# and VB.NET. Any IDE can be used to create scripts, from the built-in editor to Notepad++. A very tight integration with Visual Studio makes that IDE a perfect choice.

Here are a few features in MultiCharts .NET unavailable in regular MultiCharts:

  1. Access all data from Scripts, for instruments that are not even charted.
  2. Create custom toolbars.
  3. Draw objects using GDI.
  4. Access to all information in Order and Position Tracker from scripts.

Watch a short intro video to get an overview of the .NET Editor and tight integration we created with Visual Studio. Remember, you can choose between 32 and 64-bit versions for the one that suits your needs best.

The description of the features common to MC.NET and regular MultiCharts (i.e. charting, manual and auto trading, data management etc.) can be found here.

PowerLanguage .NET Help file with description of all the functions is located in PowerLanguage .NET Editor itself and can be also downloaded here.

What is the MultiCharts Wiki?
