i am using Metastock SDK for creating external Metastock functions. I would like to know if there is a possibillity from inside an external dll to call several others securities, with their prices, so i can manipulate them inside the dll?

In the metastock functions there is a function Security(), which with this you can do what i want, you can call many other securities in a single function, but later you have problem with the character limitations inside the indicator text, for example you can call only 50 other security prices. I want to pass this problem, from doing the same thing from an external dll.


I know that with the MSFL library you can call many different stored securities, for using them to your custom application, but this is different, i want to use them in a function inside metastock.


Thank you.

Hi, here was the response I received from one of our formula experts here: "With MetaStock 11 and earlier, using local data, you can do this. This is not possible with Online data. The MS 10 and 11 versions of the MDK have a section on how to open and read msfl data files (not how to write to them, just read them). The DLL would have to either accept a data path as a parameter or be hard coded to look in a specific location."
