- RTX: Extension Development Tools. The Investor/RT SDK (Software Development Kit) has been substantially improved and is now an integral toolkit available to all Investor/RT users. The tools are used to build Investor/RT Extensions (formerly called plug-ins). We will use the acronym RTX (RT eXtension) to refer to this new set of tools. The Investor/RT platform contains RTX tools for creating and editing RTX source code, building executable RTX components (DLLs), and adding them to charts. The suite of RTX tools enables consultants, third-party commercial software developers, and Investor/RT users who have basic familiarity with procedural programming to extend Investor/RT with high performance indicators, trading signals, drawing tools and auto trading systems. The name RTX was chosen carefully. RTL is the Investor/RT end-user formula language, the RT Language, used to compose custom indicators and trading signals. RTX is the RT Extensions toolkit used to develop indicators, signals, and drawing tools using C/C++. RTX has been designed to parallel RTL in many ways. References to market data and indicators in RTX development are the same or very similar to the tokens of RTL.
- Version 12 of Investor/RT features user interface improvements designed make RTX extensions as easily accessible as built-in indicators. For example, Version 12 has a new indicator called RiskReward (see item #3 below for more information). You can add this indicator to a chart in the customary way using the Add Indicator dialog. Select RiskReward, specify the preferences, and click to add the indicator to the chart. This indicator is also a drawing tool; thus it can be added to a chart by right-clicking and choosing Draw > Risk/Reward Drawing Tool. The indicator operates just as built-in indicators do, but RiskReward is, in fact, an RTX Extension. Sample extensions for customized stochastics and balance of power indicators are also provided with Version 12 along with source code to illustrate the ease with which new indicators can be created using RTX tools.
- The RTX Setup tool is used to automatically create source code for a new RTX Extension. Choose File > New > RTX Extension. Specify a name for the extension, describe its properties (its outputs and any parameters (preferences) the extension will have) and click OK. Investor/RT will then create a complete source program (a C++ source file).
- All extensions you create and sample extensions installed by the product installer are managed by the Object Manager just like other types of objects such as charts and quotepages. Use File > Open > RTX Extension to view all your extensions. Select one or more and click Edit to edit the source code; click Build to build the selected extensions. The notepad++ code editor, customized for RTX, is built-in to the Investor/RT installation. This powerful code editor features syntax highlighting and a full auto-completion dictionary of RTX keywords and function names.
