TRADESTATION: Installation of messaging functions and samples for TradeStation

After the installation program finishes, a signal is sent to your TradeStation to import the Triage messaging functions and samples.

All Triage EasyLanguage messaging functions will be imported into your TradeStation EasyLanguage library. Please wait (usually less than a half-minute) for TradeStation to start the messaging functions import process. The TradeStation EasyLanguage code import wizard will guide you through this process as shown in the following screenshots.

If TradeStation does not automatically import all messaging functions and samples, then you must manually run the EasyLanguage import wizard yourself. Click here for more details

During installation, you may get the following pop-up window that says you must manually import the sample.eld file. If so, then please follow the directions details.


Otherwise, press “next” after you see that all function, indicator, paint bar, show me and strategy analysis types are selected in the import wizard.


Next, you will be asked to select all available analysis techniques and hit the “finish” button.


Follow the remainder of the import wizard as TradeStation adds all Triage messaging functions and samples to your trading platform.

NINJATRADER: Adding the Triage Messaging DLL to the NinjaTrader Assembly

""NinjaTrader does not provide a method of automatically importing custom indicators, strategies or DLL references.""

You will have to manually add Triage_NinjaTrader_Msg.dll to the NinjaTrader reference list, which is described in the NinjaTrader 6.5 manual under NinjaScript\Developing Custom Strategies\Using 3rd Party Indicators and in the NinjaTrader 7.0 manual under 3rd Party Indicators

    Please go to the following links for more information:

NINJATRADER: Location of NinjaTrader messaging samples

On your computer, look for a C:\Users\<user>\Documents\NinjaTrader 6.5\bin\Custom folder that contains Triage_NinjaTrader_Msg.dll. <user> refers to your Windows user.


Depending on your version of Windows and your user name, the Triage Messaging DLL for NinjaTrader could be located in a folder named: C:\Users\admin\Documents\NinjaTrader 6.5\bin\Custom or under your Windows Documents folder. For NinjaTrader 7, look for a NinjaTrader 7 folder.


Look in the 'Indicator' and 'Strategy' folders (as shown with the red arrows below) for samples of how to use Triage Messaging in NinjaTrader. Please take a look at the TriageMessaging.cs files as examples of how to send messages from your NinjaTrader.


SIERRA CHART: Installing messaging functions and samples

For Sierra Chart, there is no automatic importing feature. You must manually find the Triage_Message C++ sample study.

For Sierra Chart, you will see the sample messaging studies in your ACS_Source folder. This will normally be located in C:\SierraChart\ACS_Source.

The installation program tries to locate folder C:\SierraChart\ACS_Source. If the folder exists, then it will copy the Triage_Message.cpp sample file to that ACS_Source folder. Please open Triage_Message.cpp for a detailed example of how to use Triage Messaging.
