Coding for beginner

hi,
i am not a big coder - just startet 1,5 years ago with ninjatrader + 1 year with my first coding-tweak. But it is really fun ! .... most of the time - lol

so advanced people can learn nothing here - its not interessting for mikes + nothing for zelle04s, if you know wht i mean
its really for absolute beginners.

I want to go through the way of my own beginning.
This means i show you how you create some easy indicator-tweaks and on the way you learn to understand the ninja-coding-concepts step by step.

So are there people out there who are interested in this ?

I get real busy at times so any responses from me would be scattered. That being said I'd love to learn more about coding and would definitely read through the thread and contribute when possible if you continued on with this subject.

hi max, a better solution for you and other members is to understand the object-oriented model of c# and ninjatrader.

you do not have to learn a lot just to understand. then it comes.

a good step is to convert simple or create simple indicators like a moving average. there is a lot what you need ... maths, fun and statistics ...

but when you have understand the oo of nt, then you can easy be a copy paster coder like me. for example i find an indicator or algorithm then i make a model on paper ... make a draft, implementation and then ...

but the best way is learning by doing ...

look for time series analysis and model in java or c# ...


nice weekend wh

Can NT/C# do paramaterized functions?

Its been over a decade since I messed with oo programming, but I clearly recall the capability of creating a user function that, when called, would perform code and then return one or more values... so far I haven't seen anything like this aside from NT function calls. Is this possible in the NT implementation of C#?

Reading through the advanced NT doco on Strategy Methods and Properties... answered my own question I think... still exploring to see how generic it can be (I.e. can the function ("method") exist outside the strategy itself like an indicator or strategy that can be called from multiple strategies.

Everything I have ever done I learned from simple indicator 'tweaks'.

I think sharing your knowledge in this area could be very helpful. My biggest tip is just to study existing indicators and if there is a tweak you want to make to an indicator, find one that already has the desired functionality and 'hack it in'.

While often frustrating, 'hacking stuff together' can be quite rewarding and when you hit a snag, the fact that NT uses C# means there are plenty of educational resources available.

The way I see it, if I can create useful indicators (if not the most I have close to the most indicators shared in the NT file sharing section) with almost no programming skill/knowledge, anybody can do it! The easier it is for novice programmers to get over the initial hurdle of believing they can create something useful, the more the larger NT community benefits.

Thank you for the feedbacks + your interest !
ElliottWave hits the point where i am come from + thats where i can start :
"learning by tweaking existing stuff "

maybe wh can make some excursion to the "object-oriented model of c# and ninjatrader"-topic - thats a part i really dont understand yet - i even dont know what it is -
would shurely be a great addition!

these days a will start a thread with my first demo-tweak - we will see .....

have the idea to make different threads with diff. topics and title them always ie as : Coding for beginner : audio-alerts
to keep it a bit organized.

I am also interested in indicator construction, only problem is I'm trying
to find a complete list of all the functions that are specific to ninjatrader and can't seem to find much info. It would make it much easier seeing what was
available to call. Sure I could hunt through all the current indicators write each new one down I find and log it but this would be very time consuming

hi,
if you mean you wanna know all possible ninjatrader supported coding-functions -- you have to read the help-guide.
there is nothing else out there i think - no other lists or so.

look at this : http://www.ninjatrader-support.com/HelpGuideV6/helpguide.html?WelcomeToNinjaTrader
