My server 2008 r2 boxes often have 3.5 and 4.0 installed side by side.

... Does it mean that we can not have MC .NET and Sierra Chart work on the same computer?

Nicolas

All the versions of .NET can exist side-by-side on the same computer. They're designed that way not to interfere with each other. Of course the usual Microsoft caveats apply.

To be more exact, unless you redirect it in a config file FOR AN EXE, ever application uses the runtime it was compiled against. Note that this is runtime - for example 4.5 will use the 4.0 untime as 4.5 REPLACES the 4.0 runtime. But you can have I think 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 4.0 installed. 3.5 uses 2.0, IIRC.

Thanks to some here, it is now clearly evident that .NET is more for programmer types. And while that might dissuade the likes of me, Jura and possibly others, I feel that there is another important question to ask (to see if a .NET purchase might be desirable)...

From a post I made elsewhere:

With MC EL / PL, one of the cool virtues of it has been the ability to leverage the many years of coding generated from TS gurus.

With respect to MC .NET, is there something comparable? As an example, will users of MC .NET be able to use code from let's say NT just as easily?

For those of us who are not programmers, and might not be willing or able to dedicate the time to such a learning curve, it would be very helpful to know that such access is available...
++++++

The point is... We may not need to dedicate a ton of time to learn if everything we might want to accomplish already exits (in Ninjascript, as an example), needing only minimal conversion work...

From a subsequent a post I made:

One that I know many would like to see is Market / Volume Profile. If indeed Ninjasripts can be easily ported-over to MC.NET, that would be awesome. Might the GOM Market Profile indicator be something we can expect?

Mostly just curious if MC .NET has an analogous platform that it can leverage that TS has been for the original MC...
++++++

A follow-up poster shared that such conversion would most like not be as easy or automated, but certainly doable a not all that painful...

So has anyone started using MC .NET actively? How are all the new C# capabilities? That DOM on the chart demo looked pretty sweet...

Also, how about a "Want your MC .NET indicator created, free?" thread?

Well, to be honest, I'm looking at something else. Even though I really like Ninja and MultiCharts .NET, the thought of re-coding all my favorite indicators and systems to work with MC .NET got me to thinking of the things that really bug me about both NT and MC.

It mostly boils down to something I learned from one of my early mentors. He said that it's always best to use the software provided and supported by your broker. That's because if something doesn't work right with orders or positions, it will get fixed very quickly or the broker gets in big trouble with the regulatory agency. You may have to pay a higher commission or spread to find the right broker / software combo, but that's life.

And that's one of the things that bugs me about NT and MC. My most active account is with MB Trading and neither software gets their orders and positions right. Both work well *most* of the time, but there's always the phantom order that hangs around and won't cancel or the fact that MC can't report a non-USD forex position correctly EVER. They know this and they don't care . And there's the fact that NT seems to move all the prior session's order history to the first bar of the session when the session changes (4pm my time). So it looks like my trades all opened and closed at 4pm. Just weird. Simple things that both of these companies could fix but they're not motivated for some reason.

So I've taken a break from them and I'm looking at OEC (openecry) as my new broker. Their software does C# and Easy Language, and the GUI looks far more modern than either NT or MC. Of course it has its quirks but I haven't found any related to orders or positions. I'm going to play with it for a few weeks and convert a few of my favorite indicators just to see how much I like it.

Good luck with OEC

I asked MC.Net's support whether it is possible fto expose an indicator to another indicator?

This is the reply I got: You cannot apply indicator to a indicator or signal. The workaround is to
create a combined study wich contains scripts of indicator 1 and indicator 2 together.

Doesn't this make it much harder to code and less flexible that Ninjatrader?

Regards

Kay Wai

I'm not sure if I get you, but if an indicator has a public method, you can access it through another indicator.

For example, the indicator below, TestIndi3, calls the TheTestCalculationMethod() from the TestIndi_2 indicator in the CalcBar() method:

 
Code
using System;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using PowerLanguage.Function;

namespace PowerLanguage.Indicator
{
	public class TestIndi3 : IndicatorObject 
    {
		public TestIndi3(object _ctx):base(_ctx){}

        private TestIndi_2 testIndi;
		
        protected override void Create() 
        {
            testIndi = new TestIndi_2(this);
		}

		protected override void StartCalc() { }

		protected override void CalcBar()
        {
		    testIndi.TheTestCalculationMethod();
		}
	}
}
(The code formatting is messed up, even though I pasted from Notepad inside the futures.io (formerly BMT) text box. Sorry for that)
