Is anyone have challenges when they add the partial classes (e.g. UserDefinedMethod) they are having problems in VS2010? Iím getting errors about some of the inbuild variables (e.g. AccountSize) not being defined.

Cheers,

Visual Studio 2012 Attaching to process

After upgrading to VS2012 one of the things that frustrated me was lack of macros - which I used to create shortcut for attaching to NinjaTrader process.

After some time I found VS plugin that does just that and saves me about 6 clicks when debugging NinjaScript in VS2012.

Here it is:

Debug Attach Manager 2012 extension

Visual Studio 2013 Debugging Broken?


Hi everyone. I've been doing a lot of debugging successfully with Visual Studio 2012. I just recently have been trying out Visual Studio 2013 for development but it seems that Debugging NinjaTrader with it is broken as no exceptions thrown in NinjaTrader are caught by Visual Studio, and no breakpoints are hit. Anyone else run into this?

I had the same thing with VS 2013 : when you're are in the debugging session, NinjaTrader.exe attached to VS 2013, try to recompile your indicator/strategy, it will then become "debuggable".

I'm using VS2010 Pro, NT7, Win7 Pro.

On VS, File > Open > Project > Documents > Ninja Trader 7 > bin > Custom > NinjaTrader.Custom

That should open a project called NinjaTrader.Custom.

Using VS 2010, NT7 and Win7. When I open NinjaTrader.Custom.csproj, VS launches a conversion wizard:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Not sure if it's safe to proceed; I don't want to screw up my NT install. Anyone familiar with what the VS conversion wizard is doing?

I'm pretty much a newb to VS and would like to incorporate Ninja specific IntelliSense into VS' IntelliSense.

Hi Swinger,
welcome to visual studio world
The Wizard starts, because of some older .net Versions are used by NT:
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/60z6y467%28v=vs.90%29.aspx

by the way: Instead of using an old VS-Version, you might want to upgrade to a newer version.

Regards

Thanks. Yeah, I went ahead and converted and it was fine. Just had to remove and re-add references as MXASJ mentions early on in this thread.

Any advantage in doing so as it relates to Ninjatrader?
