This project requires that you have an understanding of the FIX protocol and specifically the open-source QuickFIX/n.
I want you to provide me with a Visual Basic 2010 solution for an application with the following capabilities/design elements:
A single form
A button linked to code to connect to a FIX server (using a supplied connection file). The same button or a complimentary one is required for disconnecting from the server.
A text box that will display all message exchanges
The purpose of this project is for me to start to get my head around QuickFIX. As you are likely aware, most data providers will have a filtered list of IP's that they recognize, so you won't be able to use my connection file to test the application. Nevertheless, the requirements of this program are so elementary that it should simply be a matter of stripping down an existing application you have, I use my connection file and off I go.
The application should have appropriate comments in the code to allow a non-professional programmer to understand the operations of the program.
Ideally I would like to find a person skilled in QuickFIX/n whom I can consult with in regards to future work as I develop my application. I am not implying any guarantee of work beyond the scope of this project however.
Please contact me if you have any questions
