Is anyone working on windows and using visual studio?
If so are you getting edit and continue features?
what is better than if using the MT4 IDE?

2)
It appears to me, (maybe only me since im using wine + linux), that the ability to debug ticks is available only during the week during a live connection.
It had occurred to me you could loop back a charts full of data into pipes and thus get debugging working whilst offline or weekends  and with know start and end dates etc.

If that were working you could debug again and again with known data.
Anyone tried it ?

3)
Anyone know if MT4 are planning on allowing backtesting of a chart of data , rather than the live ticks?

4)

Are there some debugging tricks that really help?

Ok.   Not sure why you ask. 

in a nutshell - you cant step through a charts worth of data - from the IDE. 

In visual mode, you cant use IDE breakpoint - from MT4.


(The crazy idea I had was - programmatically feed data into the IDE, but it is alot of work. - so ignore that)

So, guess i am wondering if there may be some enhancements in the pipeline.
