DDE and C# RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I'm working on a program that does stock trading using REDIplus platform.
    But the program was written using VBA + Excel + DDE, which means it's a big macro.
    It pulls data from REDIplus and present them in Excel, and do the magic from there.
    Since VBA isn't very powerful, so we want to move this to more powerful languages,
    ideally C#.
    I know .net languages doesn't support DDE out of the box, but there are workarounds.
    And there are examples here and there showing how DDE works with C#,
    but they aren't very helpful.

    I'd like get some help for how to get started on using C# to talk to REDIplus through DDE.
