Writing plugins for NT

Hey guys,

Total newbie here with regards to programming, know a little bit of everything, but nothing properly type deal.

I want to create a project(not an indicator or strategy, an add-on, like Jigsaw DOM etc that has it's own window) and write it in VS for NinjaTrader, it will have a GUI, but I'm a little lost as to where to start, I should be okay once I get it all set up, but is it even possible to do it all from VS or does it need to be done in NT's editor and import .dlls from there? Can't seem to find any guides on how to write plugins/add-ons for NT, or at least set it up so you can.

I want to use an external library as well, other than NT, I gather it would be easier to incorporate it all and code it up in VS rather than NT.

Any guides or anyone willing to explain it in simple terms what I need to import/do in VS, I looked at the NT help which mentions importing the NtDirect.dll and going from there, but I VS won't let me do that, saying its not a proper assembly or COM file or something?

Thanks in advance!

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.
6)

Also google Ninjatrader ATI,

This will give you an idea of what you can reference from the NTDirect.dll (located in the C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder) in your project.

Also: NinjaTrader Version 7

Keep in mind that Ninjatrader 8 is going to be WPF and your NT7 project will not work with NT8, you may want to wait and see what the NT8 ATI dll looks like before proceeding.

This will be a massive headache is you have not created VS projects before; good luck!!

Cheers,

Sody
