What Are cTrader Automate UI Solutions

cTrader offers several UI-related solutions to developers.

  • Chart Controls. A collection interactive feature-rich WPF-like controls that you can use to create controls overlayed on cTrader charts. Through these controls, users can interact with your cBots/indicators.
  • Chart Objects. A collection of objects that you can draw on a chart using either C# code or the cTrader desktop chart tools.
  • WinForms. You can use .NET WinForms in your cTrader cBots/indicators. To simplify work with WinForms, we encourage you to use the Visual Studio WinForms designer.
  • WPF. cTrader Automate also supports WPF. We encourage using this option only if you are intimately familiar with C# and .NET.


WinForms and WPF only work if you are using Windows.
