TradersYard X offers its very own script editor that can be used for TradersYard X Script development
This editor is a useful tool when it comes to quickly changing a couple of lines of code, or if you just want to look at an TradersYard X Script. For all other applications, it is essential that you use Microsoft’s development environment Visual Studio. It offers a comprehensive solution that has proven itself time and again for almost all areas of software development, including of course for TradersYard X Script as well as for C#.
The most important advantages are:
  • Debugging
  • Code Completion
  • Syntax checking
In addition, there is a multitude of further features that make developing easier for you.
You can download the free “Visual Studio Community” edition at Please note that the download and the installation of the software take about 60 minutes!
From TradersYard X 2.0 onwards, you need to use at least “Visual Studio Community 2017” due to the .NET version 4.6 that is implemented!
Once you have successfully installed Visual Studio, you can link it to TradersYard X using the Preferences setting shown below. From now on, all TradersYard X Script files will automatically be opened with Visual Studio, and the debugger will also automatically be linked to TradersYard X.
