Due to some internal refinements with the Sierra Chart Chat functionality, it is necessary to update to the latest version of Sierra Chart to use the Sierra Chart Chat. Update instructions:
Software Download: Fast Update

You need to be running version 2604 or higher.

There have been some changes with Telegram integration. To restore Telegram integration if you have been using it, open the chat with File >> Open Chat Window.

The chat window normally will not be brought to the foreground since it runs on another thread. You will see it on your system taskbar. You need to find it there. If you do not see it, then select Window >> Reset Windows and then select File >> Open Chat Window again.



On the chat window, select Commands >> Telegram Notifications. Press the Yes button. Your web browser will open. Navigate to the Telegram Sierra Chart Chat bot through your browser. Which will take you back to the Telegram program.

In the Telegram chat type /detach and press enter.

Next, paste what is already on the clipboard into the Telegram Sierra Chart chat and press the enter key or send button.

For some background:

The chat project is part of a larger project to support chat, screen sharing, remote control, voice and video calls. This can be peer to peer, or in groups. And webinar type of functionality where there can be a presenter, providing screen sharing and audio to many users.

The reason we developed the chat, is because what is out there is just simply unacceptable to us. There is nothing good out there for chat that is quality and can be trusted and secure. It is simply nonexistent. Everything out there is all substandard or has problems for one reason or another. Absolutely terrible.

This project has taken a long time because we were not able to spend too much time on it, but we have gotten more involved with it, and have greatly improved upon it and now it is available and quite a good chat. Although still a lot more improvements and refinements, and features are coming.

One comment, we have noticed the chat does not work on Linux. It causes the program to freeze. Maybe because the chat window runs on another thread. We are not sure.


We should have screen sharing and remote control functionality, out in about 1 to 2 months. This is going to be very high quality and high performance. Initially it will support communication through an intermediary server but later support for direct peer to peer communication will be added.

The Telegram integration with our chat is what also will be used to receive alerts from Sierra Chart through Telegram. Alert functionality will connect to the chat server and send the alerts.

One nice thing that we hope we can do, for the upcoming voice functionality is to connect it to the public switched network, through SIP trunking, to be able to make and receive calls, with standard telephone numbers.

Just want to put this comment in the thread:

It is the one and only chat in the world, that uses standard operating system window and edit box and menu commands and buttons. Built directly on top of the operating system using C++. All clean and stable. On the server side uses STL, and simple files. Threads for performance. All clean and straightforward good quality.

The voice and video functionality will interface directly with the OS. No libraries involved. Screen sharing also completely written by us. With our own codecs (for screen capture and compression and decompression). All running on a separate thread. Will support an intermediary server, and direct peer to peer connections.

Also we are going to develop end to end encryption for chat messages. Which is not managed on the server but on the client side. So there is 100% security that you are in control of.

There is security that exists already. The connection to the server is encrypted. But the messages still need to be encrypted in a way that they cannot be decrypted other than by the user.

There is a problem in recent versions with the Chat functionality which is now resolved in 2620, where when you send a message into a particular chat, and then you start typing another message, but not yet send it, and a reply comes in from the other user, what you are typing gets cleared. This is now resolved.
