What is API?
An application-programming interface (API) is a set of programming instructions and standards that allow access to a web-based software application, in this case – VertexFX.
At Hybrid Solutions we know there is continuous need for customers and system users to tailor the VertexFX system at the dealing room or trading ends. So we’ve released sophisticated APIs for different elements of our software. And our APIs are equipped with the same interface as most of the platform’s features which makes it easy to build a new custom application.
As developers know, API development is the fastest way to customise uniform applications.
Our APIs allow them to easily create plug-ins that offers VertexFX users more flexibility and system personalisation. For example, VertexFX APIs include specifications for routines, data structures, object classes and protocols used to communicate between the consumer and VertexFX Trader. We have released APIs far all of:
Hybrid Solutions in-house development center itself has built many applications that are shipped within VertexFX Platform using these APIs including:
Why use VertexFX APIs?
With VertexFX APIs you can create unique ideas and customise the platform to your exact needs. Think you need more from VertexFX Trader? Then build it using the appropriate API!
Our API usage is open and available to stimulate ideas as well as allowing you to build practical plug-ins. Here are some examples of what they could be used for:
VertexFX APIs open up new horizons and opportunities to customize the VertexFX platform to create your own tailor-made system.
How to use VertexFX APIs
VertexFX APIs are mostly ActiveX components (DLLs) that can be imported with any programming language (VB6, C++, VB.NET, JAVA etc). So import them, make objects from the classes (you may need help from a programmer to do this) and start using the events, functions and subs to create your applications.
