Re: Opening DLL Indicator with Lazarus doesnt work

Hello,

We don't recommend using Lazarus because there are many problems with this program.

You can use any Delphi version, you can Google for Delphi7_Lite_Full_Setup_v7.3.3.0_Build_2009-6-22_.rar file
This version should be ok for creating indicators and strategies.

Sorry, but as far as I know, you can use + and - buttons from the number pad only.

You can change the hot keys via Tools -> Options menu, for example, select O and P buttons or any other.

Re: Programmatically adding MA to CCI indicator in Strategy

Hello,

Do you want to add an indicator to an indicator?
Or do you want to add a new parameter (indicator) in the properties of a strategy?

As far as I know, you can't do these both.

The only way is to get the data of your Moving Average via the method GetMA.
