Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Visual Studio 2012 Express Debugging

I've been looking on the net for posts on debugging Ninjascripts using VS 2012 Express

Can this be done? I tried NinjaTrader support and their standard response is this is only available from the professional versions of Visual Studio.

I've seen workarounds using VS 2008 and VS 2010 Express. Is there one for VS 2012 (Express)?

If none, should I revert to VS 2008 or VS 2010 Express?

Thanks in advance

Al G

I believe that's true (only available in the professional version). I use Sharp Develop. It's an open source C# ide.

I bet @gomi or @shodson knows the answer...


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Futures Edge on FIO

What happens to the S&P 500 when a new President takes office?

sorry I use VS2012 pro.
but you can take a look at stackexchange
debugging - Are there any stand-alone C#/.NET Debuggers? - Stack Overflow

remember to compile your indies in debug mode to be able to do the line breaking and step by step stuff...

Sorry, I use VS 2012 Ultimate only. I've used SharpDevelop a long time ago, it's pretty capable, it might do the trick.
