I would like to launch some non-indicator, non-strategy processes before any indicators or strategies are loaded. I understand there is a way to do this in NT 8 perhaps, but not NT 7.

I'm able to make custom classes and edit them (.CS files in the Indicator folder, but not Class Indicator), and compile them, and a miracle, they execute fine.

But, I want to use these non-ninja classes to do things like load internal/memory based List (tables), from SQL database, connect to XMPP server, et cetera, BEFORE any other Ninja Code is executed.

Ninja support said they cannot suggest a way to do this for NT 7.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Maybe create a process outside NT and do a JSON call to that module from your indicator / strategy ?

I decided to port my strategies to NT8 and for now leave the chart indicators / manual trading support code in NT7...

NT8 seems to have the infrastructure (AddOn) to hook the Control Panel startup.

probably OnWindowsCreated() will be the hook in an AddOn??

...will post in another thread when I get it working.
