How to learn programming ?

#1 Postby BuddhaBar » Sat Jun 12, 2021 12:32 pm


I have an FT5 and I would like to learn how to program indicators and strategies
I already have some knowledge about MQL4 so I hope it would be easier for me
Please advise :

- what language should I learn Delphi or C++, which is easier and has better educational resources in internet ?
- where can I have a programming course online ?
- what are the websites to give me some educational resources in internet ?

I would be grateful for all your advise on above subjects
Thanks in advance

I have same question and learn Delphi before. But There are too few learning materials for Delphi, and the IDE is not used to it。so i prefer C++。
Some one says , Pascal is easier ,maybe。
I thought , mql4 is similar to C++ ,so.......

I would also like to know the answer to these questions. For such a powerful FX Backtesting tool, I'm surprised there isn't more readily available information on programming for it like there is for MQL4/5.

We provide C++ and Delphi API files with the program, you can find them in the C:\ForexTester5\Examples folder by default.

API files description can be found in "Help" menu in the Forex Tester 5 program (API Help menu).
