I'm looking into easylanguage and I want to port my strategies to it from MT4/NT.
I don't know how to access the discussion forum of Multicharts, so I'll put my doubts here.
I'm tryng to calculate an array of daily pivots, how can I do it?
Also, I'm pretty lost with everything about this scripting language, do you know any place where I can get help? Do Multicharts offer some kind of support? The pdfs and integrated help provided by Multicharts are far away from the Ninjatrader ones.
What code do you already have that you're trying with? That's probably easier to start from.
MultiCharts offers support on their forum, but there are also helpful people in the community (also here on futures.io (formerly BMT)) that are willing to help.
The integrated help (you mean the help file in the PowerLanguage .NET Editor?) is similar to the NinjaTrader reference manual (structured by group/keyword). There's also a wiki, and all PowerLanguage keywords can be found here.
Personally, I like to search with google with the `site:http://www.multicharts.com` query so that I can search the wiki and forum at the same time.
I'm not familiar enough with NinjaTrader to say that `GetDayBar()` has an equivalent in MultiCharts (.NET). It is possible of course to calculate the daily high in MultiCharts (.NET) either with a function or yourself by resetting a variable whenever a new day occurred (if that's NinjaTrader's definition of "day").
In PowerLanguage there are also `highD()`, `lowD()`, etc functions that return the high of the day, so you might want to look into these.
If you're already using the PowerLanguage version I'd certainly not recommend switching to MultiCharts .NET. The learning curve of this latter platform is significantly stronger/higher, and the PowerLanguage version can do 95% of what MultiCharts .NET can.
In the long run, I think you'll save yourself a lot of time/energy and struggles by sticking to the PowerLanguage version.
I know C# already, I don't need to learn it. I didn't know that .NET and normal version where the same except for the languaje, if I have to choose, I choose C# because I don't have to learn it and I have a C# version of the indicator. I'll try to understand the .NET version.
