Pass data from TWS to AB using IB's API

Recommended Posts

Feeding OHLC VOL OI quotes (both realtime and backfill) to AmiBroker is pretty straightforward as mentioned in How to use AmiBroker with Interactive Brokers TWS.

However, I am interested to pass other datapoints from TWS to an AmiBroker array. For instance, I wonder, would it be possible to inject IV% from TWS to an user-defined Array in AB using IB's OpenSource API both real-time and historical. I was going through the below mentioned articles and my curiosity has increased tremendously.
1) For realtime
2) For backfilling
3) AB's ADK Guide

I am a total noob when it comes to DLLs, APIs. My C/C++ knowledge is limited to High School programming basics only. Could you kindly give me some advice or refer some books, that will guide on how I could let TWS and AB shake hands with each other.
