    Custom Connection Provider Creation

    I know this is undocumented/-supported by NinjaTrader, but still it's possible. But i'm having a hard time to implement a custom connection in the connections menu.

    So far I created a CustomConnectOptions class implementation and an AdapterBase implementation with IAdapter and IDisposable. So far so good.

    The adapter is referenced as AdapterClassType within the options implementation.

    I can see the new connection adapter within the NT8 connections configuration window. I can also add this to my connections and write some configuration data on this adapter. However, when I click OK, the new set of connections should normally be stored and appear in the connections menu. But this doesn't happen. When I open the configuration window again the connection is not on the list of selected connections anymore.

    I figure there should be some function, callback or event that should be listened to store it permanently. But after searching for some time I'm lost at this point.

    Is there anyone that could hint me in the right direction? Cheers!

      Welcome to the forums hpolthof!

      We do not provide any information on building custom Connection Adapters. Yes, they are undocumented/unsupported. Only those that are in our OpenConnect program would have access to materials to build Connection Adapters. If you want to discuss entering this program, please email info [at] ninjatraderecosystem [dot] com.

      If there is another topic we can assist with, please don't hesitate to open a new thread.
