    • Let us use Visual Studio 2017 for developing and debugging

      Visual Studio 2017 is the latest version.
      cAlgo doesn't even properly support Visual Studio 2015.

      Let us use Visual Studio 2017 for proper developing and debugging.
      Make it easy for us to use the full power of Visual Studio 2017 for developing robots and indicators.

      Please make Visual Studio 2017 + Windows 10 work with cAlgo.

      Thank you.

      • expose chart events, mouse events, onclick, onhover, etc

        Interactivity is key
        Why isn't interactivity a priority?
        after all, it's c#

        • start all button , to have the opposite effect of the stop all button

          Can you add a button to start all the instances of a robot?
          I have like 80 instances and it's hard to click on start for each one.
          There is a button for Stop all, so what I want is a button that would do the opposite.

          • my credit score @ http://www.mycreditscorereportfree.co.uk

            Just because a person has a credit card with a limit of $ 10,000, there is no you mean there are actually spend $ 10,000. This is where many consumers begin to borrow themselves. Before they knew that their cards had been dispatched their credit scores fell down and the urgent money they had had no longer existed. Instead, there is an additional monthly payment that is likely not necessary. https://www.mycreditscorecheck.co.uk

                    • Enable "offline" Backtesting

                      In order to be able to backtest cBots while not being connected to the internet and/or the Sportware Server the abillity to backtest "offline" would be highly appreciated.
                      Like a local "offline" Backtesting Account with the option to define initial funds.

                          • Save the downloaded data

                            Everytime I start cALgo and run backtest, cAlgo have to re-download the data. I wish cALgo could save the downloaded data so that the next time I start cAlgo, it could use the old downloaded data for use, and of course when I run backtest up to the newest date, cAlgo could download and update the data.

                              Just would like not to have to use my documents folder for my cbots.
                              I could use a soft link I guess.

                                • Python language support

                                  1. Overview:

                                  1.1 Include support for Python programming in cAlgo..

                                  1.2 Specifically, the Anaconda Python distribution.

                                  2. Motivation:

                                  2.1 While advanced machine learning functions written in Python and C++ may be integrated into cBots and advisors through DLL's, called from C#, it would be convenient to have cAlgo support Python scripting directly,

                                  2.2 This would give cBot developers direct access to state of the art machine learning platforms accessible through Python, directly from cAlgo.

                                  3. Specification Ideas:

                                  3.1 Support Anaconda Python distribution.

                                  3.2 Offer option to install Anaconda Python distribution in the cAlgo installer.

                                  3.3. Integrated Python IDE, similar to…

                                  • A simple function to get the price of two pairs at a specific time in the past eg the price of EURUSD and USDJPY at 0915 GMT on 5 June 2017

                                    A simple function to get the price of two pairs at a specific time in the past eg the price of EURUSD and USDJPY at 0915 GMT on 5 June 2017

                                    Can anyone help me with this? it's quite basic and I'm surprised that there is no documentation anywhere for this simple query

                                    • cAlgo User input parameters dividers

                                      If your cBot instance as many user input parameters then the panel can become very messy real quickly. I'd like a way to add a simple divider, like the how the default instances symbol and timeframe input are grouped together and also add a group title above it again just like how the default instances symbol and timeframe input group has one.

                                      I've uploaded a mock design of what I mean here https://ctdn.com/forum/suggestions/11555

                                      • Backtesting fucntion

                                        I'm working on my cBot via cAlgo.

If i could choose time in a day to run backtest, or there is anyway to track the time of a specific candle.For example, i can get the data of open time of the first candle in the day by marketSeries, but I think it could be better if i could get the open time of a specific candle in OnBar(), which will be…

                                        • Tool Tap on all windows , in case of multiwindow

                                          Please add tool tap on all windows because when working on muti monitors , it not comfortable to go back to main window to click tap tool and go back on monitor that you want to use.
