21.1 Getting Started
for Windows requires the following 3rd party tools that will allow you
to develop additional plug-ins(graphical interfaces) within Tradepoint
Visual Studio 2008 SP1 - This is the programming
environment for all components of the Tradepoint suite of products. It is
strongly suggested that you also have SP1 installed on the development machine
information about Visual Studio 2008 please go to: http://www.msdn.com
Developer Express .NET Winform Controls - These
are the primary controls used within Tradepoint for all editing and most display
with the exception of Ribbons and other toolbars. They are available for
download trial at:
version used within Tradepoint: 10.1.4
DotNetBar WinForms Edition - These are used for
integration with the Ribbon Bar in Tradepoint and all of the toolbars throughout
the software. They are available for download at:
version used within Tradepoint: 220.127.116.11
Note: In both cases, to distribute your
plug-in, you will require full licenses of both of these controls to properly
compile for redistribution.
plug-in is available from www.tradepoint360.com/memberservices/downloads.aspx.
This plug-in demonstrates the basics of developing a plug-in and testing it
within your copy of Tradepoint. Your development machine will require Tradepoint
to be installed in its default directory (c:\program files\Tradepoint) or you
will need to update post-compile actions to point to the new directory for
example plug-in may have issues with references because of the nature of
.NET. Please expand the References
folder within the Example Plug-in project and ensure that all items do not have!
beside them. Any that do, please
delete those references and re-add them, pointing to the versions within your
Tradepoint installation folder.
