NxCore API Language Wrappers and Sample Apps
If you're new to NxCore then this is the place to start. The Language Wrapper/Sample Apps are 10 extremely simply applications, each taking you through one or two key NxCore concepts.
The current languages supported include:
What the Samples Demonstrate:
Each example will take you through one or two specific concepts in NxCore. The entire NxCore API library is utilized within all ten examples. The specific concept explored in each sample are as follows:
The Console Window:
Each Sample runs as a Windows Console application. By sticking with the console applications the various complexities of the specific GUI implementation are removed allowing the developer to stick with learning the concepts of NxCore as quickly as possible. Output on the console applications can be extremely fast for human viewing. If you wish to examine data in detail simply grab the console's vertical scroll bar button with the mouse and hold it. The thread will pause from processing allowing you to examine the data output in detail. To continue processing simply release the scroll bar button.
Output from SampleApp3:
In many of the applications, each and every trade and/or quote and/or category message is displayed by constructing a string with the data and outputting it to the console. In some cases this is done for every symbol in the system. Printing to the console in this fashion is slow, and printing every single message can slow performance considerably (it is certainly not something you would want to do in a real world application). However, the goal of these applications is to get you working with NxCore structures and functions as quickly as possible, not to demonstrate our programming prowess or have you wade through mountains of GUI code to understand what is happening.
C and C++ offer the highest performance available. By their very nature, managed languages such as C# will offer less raw performance. If speed is what you demand we highly recommend using the C or C++ libraries and applications.
Running the projects within Visual Studio:
The console apps expect a NxCore filename to be passed in as the only argument. If you try running the application from the project folder, it will not find the NxCore DLL files required. These are placed one directory up in the language main folder.
To set both of the properties so that you may run inside the Visual Studio environment go to the project settings and set 'Command Arguments' and 'Working Directory':
Make sure the filename and working directory are specific to your environment; the above is just a sample.
