Concept

In this article, I will continue the topic of displaying data in indicators from any symbol/period to the current symbol chart by creating the functionality for displaying standard indicators using several buffers for drawing their data. We have already learned to obtain data from any chart symbol/period and display them on the current symbol chart. Not everything goes smoothly but I gradually detect and eliminate all shortcomings. After all, we are learning to develop from scratch which does not exclude the possibility of not taking something into account. The most important thing here is to promptly detect existing flaws and gradually fix them having a lot of observation time in stock. In the current article, I will implement the ability to create multi-buffer standard indicators.

The main difference from single-buffer indicators in the concept of building a library is that we need to somehow mark the drawn and calculated indicator buffers so that the library can refer them all to one common indicator.

At the moment, we already have a standard indicator type written to the properties of buffer objects and the buffer identifier:

  • The "Indicator type" parameter shows a standard indicator the drawn and calculated buffer objects of a created indicator belong to;
  • The "Indicator identifier" parameter is used to specify which of the two created indicators of the same type the drawn and calculated buffer objects belong to (for example, different МА indicators — one of them has the ID of 1, the second one — 2, the third one — 3, etc. All of them have the same IND_MA indicator type)

These parameters are well suited for identifying the affiliation of buffer objects to single-buffer standard indicators. In multi-buffer indicators, we also need to define which standard indicator line the calculated and drawn buffer objects belong to, since there are multiple lines. Here we come to the conclusion that it is necessary to set at least one more parameter - the line type (top, bottom, middle, etc.).
In that case, we will be able to clearly distinguish the affiliation of buffer objects to each of the created indicators and easily access the necessary line of any of the created indicators by the line type:

  • The "Indicator type" parameter shows a standard indicator the drawn and calculated buffer objects of a created indicator belong to;
  • The "Indicator identifier" parameter is used to specify which of the two created indicators of the same type the drawn and calculated buffer objects belong to (for example, different МА indicators — one of them has the ID of 1, the second one — 2, the third one — 3, etc. All of them have the same IND_MA indicator type);
  • The "Indicator line" parameter specifies a certain indicator line obtained by setting two previous parameters

Let's add yet another parameter: "Short indicator name", which is to store the name of a standard indicator matching the one displayed by standard indicators in a subwindow with the addition of a symbol and a period. For example, this name looks as follows for Stochastic:

Fig. 1. Standard Stochastic Oscillator indicator

Fig. 2. Multi-symbol multi-period standard Stochastic Oscillator indicator


Improving library classes

Let's change the \MQL5\Include\DoEasy\Datas.mqh file name to \MQL5\Include\DoEasy\Data.mqh (which is more correct from the linguistic point of view) and add constants of the new library message indices:

//--- CBuffer

Remove the old Datas.mqh file from the \MQL5\Include\DoEasy\ library folder as its functions are now fulfilled by Data.mqh.

Add all the necessary new data for working with multi-buffer standard indicators to \MQL5\Include\DoEasy\Defines.mqh.

First, change the name in the renamed file include string:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Include files                                                    |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
#include "DataSND.mqh"
#include "DataIMG.mqh"
#include "Data.mqh"
#ifdef __MQL4__
#include "ToMQL4.mqh"
#endif 
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

Add the new enumeration of indicator line types to the block containing data for working with indicator buffers:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Indicator lines                                                  |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
enum ENUM_INDICATOR_LINE_MODE
  {
   INDICATOR_LINE_MODE_MAIN,                                // Main line
   INDICATOR_LINE_MODE_SIGNAL,                              // Signal line
   INDICATOR_LINE_MODE_UPPER,                               // Upper line
   INDICATOR_LINE_MODE_MIDDLE,                              // Middle line
   INDICATOR_LINE_MODE_LOWER,                               // Lower line
   INDICATOR_LINE_MODE_JAWS,                                // Jaws line
   INDICATOR_LINE_MODE_TEETH,                               // Teeth line
   INDICATOR_LINE_MODE_LIPS,                                // Lips line
   INDICATOR_LINE_MODE_DI_PLUS,                             // +DI line
   INDICATOR_LINE_MODE_DI_MINUS,                            //  -DI line
  };
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

Different standard indicators have lines, which may have their own names depending on how the indicator developer named them. Here I have created the enumeration that contains constants specifying a name of an indicator line. The constant values are to be used to mark the affiliation of created buffer objects (calculated and drawn ones) to a certain standard indicator line. Thus, when accessing the buffer object by constant name, we can unambiguously obtain the required object to be handled (considering the indicator type and its ID).

Later, I will assign accurate values to these constants to reduce the amount of code I am going to generate here (since many indicators completely repeat the calculation of the same-type indicators having other line names).

Add the new value to the enumeration of integer buffer object properties and increase the number of integer properties from 23 to 24:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Buffer integer properties                                        |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
enum ENUM_BUFFER_PROP_INTEGER
  {
   BUFFER_PROP_INDEX_PLOT = 0,                              // Plotted buffer serial number
   BUFFER_PROP_STATUS,                                      // Buffer status (by drawing style) from the ENUM_BUFFER_STATUS enumeration
   BUFFER_PROP_TYPE,                                        // Buffer type (from the ENUM_BUFFER_TYPE enumeration)
   BUFFER_PROP_TIMEFRAME,                                   // Buffer period data (timeframe)
   BUFFER_PROP_ACTIVE,                                      // Buffer usage flag
   BUFFER_PROP_DRAW_TYPE,                                   // Graphical construction type (from the ENUM_DRAW_TYPE enumeration)
   BUFFER_PROP_ARROW_CODE,                                  // Arrow code for DRAW_ARROW style
   BUFFER_PROP_ARROW_SHIFT,                                 // The vertical shift of the arrows for DRAW_ARROW style
   BUFFER_PROP_LINE_STYLE,                                  // Line style
   BUFFER_PROP_LINE_WIDTH,                                  // Line width
   BUFFER_PROP_DRAW_BEGIN,                                  // The number of initial bars that are not drawn and values in DataWindow
   BUFFER_PROP_SHOW_DATA,                                   // Flag of displaying construction values in DataWindow
   BUFFER_PROP_SHIFT,                                       // Indicator graphical construction shift by time axis in bars
   BUFFER_PROP_COLOR_INDEXES,                               // Number of colors
   BUFFER_PROP_COLOR,                                       // Drawing color
   BUFFER_PROP_INDEX_BASE,                                  // Base data buffer index
   BUFFER_PROP_INDEX_NEXT_BASE,                             // Index of the array to be assigned as the next indicator buffer
   BUFFER_PROP_INDEX_NEXT_PLOT,                             // Index of the next drawn buffer
   BUFFER_PROP_IND_LINE_MODE,                               // Indicator line
   BUFFER_PROP_ID,                                          // ID of multiple buffers of a single indicator
   BUFFER_PROP_IND_HANDLE,                                  // Handle of an indicator using a buffer
   BUFFER_PROP_IND_TYPE,                                    // Type of an indicator using a buffer
   BUFFER_PROP_NUM_DATAS,                                   // Number of data buffers
   BUFFER_PROP_INDEX_COLOR,                                 // Color buffer index
  }; 
#define BUFFER_PROP_INTEGER_TOTAL (24)                      // Total number of integer bar properties
#define BUFFER_PROP_INTEGER_SKIP  (2)                       // Number of buffer properties not used in sorting
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

In the same way, add the new string property and increase their number to 4:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Buffer string properties                                         |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
enum ENUM_BUFFER_PROP_STRING
  {
   BUFFER_PROP_SYMBOL = (BUFFER_PROP_INTEGER_TOTAL+BUFFER_PROP_DOUBLE_TOTAL), // Buffer symbol
   BUFFER_PROP_LABEL,                                       // Name of the graphical indicator series displayed in DataWindow
   BUFFER_PROP_IND_NAME,                                    // Name of an indicator using a buffer
   BUFFER_PROP_IND_NAME_SHORT,                              // Short name of an indicator using a buffer
  };
#define BUFFER_PROP_STRING_TOTAL  (4)                       // Total number of string buffer properties
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

Since I have added two new properties to the buffer object, I also need to add two new criteria to search and sort buffer objects in their collection list by these properties:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Possible buffer sorting criteria                                 |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
#define FIRST_BUFFER_DBL_PROP          (BUFFER_PROP_INTEGER_TOTAL-BUFFER_PROP_INTEGER_SKIP)
#define FIRST_BUFFER_STR_PROP          (BUFFER_PROP_INTEGER_TOTAL-BUFFER_PROP_INTEGER_SKIP+BUFFER_PROP_DOUBLE_TOTAL-BUFFER_PROP_DOUBLE_SKIP)
enum ENUM_SORT_BUFFER_MODE
  {
//--- Sort by integer properties
   SORT_BY_BUFFER_INDEX_PLOT = 0,                           // Sort by the plotted buffer serial number

//--- Sort by real properties
   SORT_BY_BUFFER_EMPTY_VALUE = FIRST_BUFFER_DBL_PROP,      // Sort by the empty value for plotting where nothing will be drawn
//--- Sort by string properties
   SORT_BY_BUFFER_SYMBOL = FIRST_BUFFER_STR_PROP,           // Sort by the buffer symbol
   SORT_BY_BUFFER_LABEL,                                    // Sort by the name of the graphical indicator series displayed in DataWindow
   SORT_BY_BUFFER_IND_NAME,                                 // Sort by name of an indicator using a buffer
   SORT_BY_BUFFER_IND_NAME_SHORT,                           // Sort by a short name of an indicator using a buffer
  };
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

Since I have added two new properties to the buffer object, I should add them to the list of the allowed ones since we have descendant objects of the abstract buffer's basic object. These descendant objects, in turn, feature virtual methods returning the flags of the object supporting various properties. Adding the properties to the list of allowed ones is the only way to enable the ability to search, select and sort buffer objects in the buffer object collection list.
Each drawing type features its own buffer object, and improvements should be made to files of all such objects. Since all changes in all objects are similar, let's consider the improvement using the line buffer object in \MQL5\Include\DoEasy\Objects\Indicators\BufferLine.mqh as an example.

The changes have been made into two virtual methods returning the flag of the object supporting integer and string properties:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Return 'true' if a buffer supports a passed                      |
//| integer property, otherwise return 'false'                       |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

       property!=BUFFER_PROP_INDEX_NEXT_BASE && 
       property!=BUFFER_PROP_IND_LINE_MODE && 
       property!=BUFFER_PROP_IND_HANDLE &&
       property!=BUFFER_PROP_IND_TYPE &&
       property!=BUFFER_PROP_ID
      )
     ) return false;
   return true; 
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Return 'true' if a buffer supports a passed                      |
//| real property, otherwise return 'false'                          |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
bool CBufferLine::SupportProperty(ENUM_BUFFER_PROP_DOUBLE property)
  {
   if(this.TypeBuffer()==BUFFER_TYPE_CALCULATE)
      return false;
   return true;
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Return 'true' if a buffer supports a passed                      |
//| string property, otherwise return 'false'                        |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
bool CBufferLine::SupportProperty(ENUM_BUFFER_PROP_STRING property)
  {
   if(this.TypeBuffer()==BUFFER_TYPE_CALCULATE && property!=BUFFER_PROP_IND_NAME_SHORT)
      return false;
   return true;
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

Provided that the buffer object is a calculated buffer, then, if the method receives any of the properties not present in the enumerated list, the method returns false — the object does not support such a property, otherwise the object supports such a property and the method returns true.

Such changes (or similar ones in BufferCalculate.mqh) are implemented to all files of the descendant classes of the abstract buffer object: BufferArrow.mqh, BufferBars.mqh, BufferCalculate.mqh, BufferCandles.mqh, BufferFilling.mqh, BufferHistogram.mqh, BufferHistogram2.mqh, BufferSection.mqh, BufferZigZag.mqh and BufferLine.mqh, which I have already considered. Find the changes in the attached files.

In the previous article, I have created the methods for creating buffer objects for multi-symbol multi-period standard indicators displaying their data in the main chart subwindow. In the current article, I will supplement the library with the methods of creating standard indicators displaying their data in the main chart window — these methods are no different from those already created. They have been implemented for all standard indicators of the main window. I will consider such a method using Moving Average as an example:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Create multi-symbol multi-period MA                              |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
int CBuffersCollection::CreateMA(const string symbol,const ENUM_TIMEFRAMES timeframe,
                                 const int ma_period,
                                 const int ma_shift,
                                 const ENUM_MA_METHOD ma_method,
                                 const ENUM_APPLIED_PRICE applied_price,
                                 const int id=WRONG_VALUE)
  {
//--- Create the indicator handle and set the default ID
   int handle=::iMA(symbol,timeframe,ma_period,ma_shift,ma_method,applied_price);
   int identifier=(id==WRONG_VALUE ? IND_MA : id);
   color array_colors[1]={clrRed};
   CBuffer *buff=NULL;
   if(handle!=INVALID_HANDLE)
     {
      //--- Create the line buffer
      this.CreateLine();
      //--- Get the last created (drawn) buffer object and set all the necessary parameters to it
      buff=this.GetLastCreateBuffer();
      if(buff==NULL)
         return INVALID_HANDLE;
      buff.SetSymbol(symbol);
      buff.SetTimeframe(timeframe);
      buff.SetID(identifier);
      buff.SetIndicatorHandle(handle);
      buff.SetIndicatorType(IND_MA);
      buff.SetLineMode(INDICATOR_LINE_MODE_MAIN);
      buff.SetShowData(true);
      buff.SetLabel("MA("+symbol+","+TimeframeDescription(timeframe)+": "+(string)ma_period+")");
      buff.SetIndicatorName("Moving Average");
      buff.SetColors(array_colors);
      
      //--- Create a calculated buffer storing standard indicator data
      this.CreateCalculate();
      //--- Get the last created (calculated) buffer object and set all the necessary parameters to it
      buff=this.GetLastCreateBuffer();
      if(buff==NULL)
         return INVALID_HANDLE;
      buff.SetSymbol(symbol);
      buff.SetTimeframe(timeframe);
      buff.SetID(identifier);
      buff.SetIndicatorHandle(handle);
      buff.SetIndicatorType(IND_MA);
      buff.SetLineMode(INDICATOR_LINE_MODE_MAIN);
      buff.SetEmptyValue(EMPTY_VALUE);
      buff.SetLabel("MA("+symbol+","+TimeframeDescription(timeframe)+": "+(string)ma_period+")");
      buff.SetIndicatorName("Moving Average");
     }
   return handle;
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

Learn more about the method operation in the previous article. The only difference from the previously considered similar methods is setting a new property for the buffer object — the line type of a single-buffer indicator is set as Main. Such additions were made to all previously implemented methods of creating single-buffer standard indicators in a subwindow considered in the previous article, as well as to the methods of creating single-buffer standard indicators in the main window, which are already added to the buffer object collection class file BuffersCollection.mqh — these are CreateAMA(), CreateDEMA(), CreateFrAMA(), CreateMA(), CreateSAR(), CreateTEMA() and CreateVIDYA() methods.
This line value has already been set as a default one in the class constructor, but here I have added the unconditional setting of this property so that these methods correspond to the methods of creating multi-buffer standard indicators I am going to consider now.

Let's have a look at the methods of creating multi-buffer standard indicators using the method of creating the standard Average Directional Movement Index indicator object as an example:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Create multi-symbol multi-period ADX                             |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
int CBuffersCollection::CreateADX(const string symbol,const ENUM_TIMEFRAMES timeframe,const int adx_period,const int id=WRONG_VALUE)
  {
//--- Create the indicator handle and set the default ID
   int handle=::iADX(symbol,timeframe,adx_period);
   int identifier=(id==WRONG_VALUE ? IND_ADX : id);
   color array_colors[1]={clrLightSeaGreen};
   CBuffer *buff=NULL;
   if(handle!=INVALID_HANDLE)
     {
      //--- Create the line buffer
      this.CreateLine();
      //--- Get the last created (drawn) buffer object and set all the necessary ADX line parameters to it
      buff=this.GetLastCreateBuffer();
      if(buff==NULL)
         return INVALID_HANDLE;
      buff.SetSymbol(symbol);
      buff.SetTimeframe(timeframe);
      buff.SetID(identifier);
      buff.SetIndicatorHandle(handle);
      buff.SetIndicatorType(IND_ADX);
      buff.SetLineMode(INDICATOR_LINE_MODE_MAIN);     // This is the main indicator line
      buff.SetShowData(true);
      buff.SetIndicatorName("Average Directional Movement Index");
      buff.SetIndicatorShortName("ADX("+symbol+","+TimeframeDescription(timeframe)+": "+(string)adx_period+")");
      buff.SetLabel(buff.IndicatorShortName());
      buff.SetColors(array_colors);
      
      //--- Create the line buffer
      this.CreateLine();
      //--- Get the last created (drawn) buffer object and set all the necessary +DI line parameters to it
      buff=this.GetLastCreateBuffer();
      if(buff==NULL)
         return INVALID_HANDLE;
      buff.SetSymbol(symbol);
      buff.SetTimeframe(timeframe);
      buff.SetID(identifier);
      buff.SetIndicatorHandle(handle);
      buff.SetIndicatorType(IND_ADX);
      buff.SetLineMode(INDICATOR_LINE_MODE_DI_PLUS);  // This is a +DI line
      buff.SetShowData(true);
      buff.SetIndicatorName("Average Directional Movement Index");
      buff.SetIndicatorShortName("ADX("+symbol+","+TimeframeDescription(timeframe)+": "+(string)adx_period+")");
      buff.SetLabel("+DI");

The logic here is completely identical to the previously created methods. The number of buffer objects depends on the number of lines drawn by each specific standard indicator. In order to set the affiliation of each created buffer object of an appropriate standard indicator line, set the line value from the ENUM_INDICATOR_LINE_MODE enumeration added above. Thus, each buffer object corresponds to the indicator line specified for it. Each indicator line features two buffer objects — drawn and calculated one. In the calculated buffer, write data from the handle of the created standard indicator, while the drawn buffer displays the calculated buffer data to the main chart. This is the entire method logic.
The remaining methods are almost identical, except for indicator names, their short names and names of each of the lines since each standard indicator line has its own name and description corresponding to how the indicator displays its line names in the data window.

The following methods for creating multi-buffer standard indicator objects have been implemented: CreateADX(), CreateADXWilder(), CreateMACD(), CreateRVI(), CreateStochastic(), CreateBands(), CreateEnvelopes() and CreateFractals(). The methods are identical to the one considered above. There is no point in describing them. You can find them in the attached files.

In the previous article, I have started creating the methods preparing the calculated buffer data, clearing the buffer data and setting the values to the drawn buffer. With the use of the switch operator, actions performed with the buffers are distributed according to the indicator type. As it turns out, only minor improvements are required in order to implement handling of standard indicator objects created today.

The method preparing the calculated buffer data of the specified standard indicator:

As you can see, the actions performed when handling buffer objects are placed to separate handling blocks. Each block features its own indicators handled in similar way. Only actions that are identical for various types of standard indicators but are different from other types of standard indicators, are sent to separate handling blocks. In case of the Bollinger Bands indicator, I had to swap the indices of its buffers because its buffer indexing (upper line, middle line and lower line) is different from the same indexing in the data window (upper line, lower line, middle line) for some reason. Therefore, I had to implement two additional variables idx0 and idx1 featuring real indices of standard indicator lines for each type. For all other types of indicators, their line indices go in a row: 0, 1 and 2, while in case of Bollinger Bands, the first two indices are reversed: 1, 0 and 2.

I have already considered the rest of the method logic in the previous article. Here I have simply added handling newly created standard indicator objects.

Just like in the previous method, here I have grouped together similar handling actions for different standard indicator objects.

If we take a closer look, we can see that many indicators located in separate groups have an indentical handling logic, and the whole difference lies only in the names of their line constants. I have mentioned this at the beginning of the article. After creating the objects of the three remaining standard indicators whose lines are initially displayed on a chart with a shift (Alligator, Gator and Ishimoku), I will optimize these methods by setting similar line index values for different constants that are identical in their purpose. This will reduce the method code.

The method setting the values for the current chart to the buffers of the specified standard indicator by the timeseries index:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Set values for the current chart to the buffers of the specified |
//| standard indicator by the timeseries index according to          |

This method is constructed identically to the two methods discussed above. Same-type handling actions of different standard indicators are grouped here as well. This method is also to be optimized after setting the values for the constants of same-type indicator lines.

The method returning the standard indicator buffer description by its type and ID has been previously implemented in the CEngine library main class file. Let's move its implementation to the buffer collection class. To do this, declare this method along with the other one, returning the indicator short name, at the very end of the class body:

//--- Return the standard indicator buffer description by type and ID
   string                  GetLabelByTypeID(const ENUM_INDICATOR ind_type,const int id,const ENUM_INDICATOR_LINE_MODE line_mode=INDICATOR_LINE_MODE_MAIN);
//--- Return the standard indicator short name by type and ID
   string                  GetIndicatorShortNameByTypeID(const ENUM_INDICATOR ind_type,const int id);
   
//--- Constructor
                           CBuffersCollection();
//--- Get pointers to the timeseries collection (the method is called in the CollectionOnInit() method of the CEngine object)
   void                    OnInit(CTimeSeriesCollection *timeseries) { this.m_timeseries=timeseries;  }
  };
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

Let's write their implementation outside the class body:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Return the standard indicator buffer description                 |
//| by type and ID                                                   |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
string CBuffersCollection::GetLabelByTypeID(const ENUM_INDICATOR ind_type,const int id,const ENUM_INDICATOR_LINE_MODE line_mode=INDICATOR_LINE_MODE_MAIN)
  {
   CArrayObj *list=this.GetListBufferByTypeID(ind_type,id);
   list=CSelect::ByBufferProperty(list,BUFFER_PROP_IND_LINE_MODE,line_mode,EQUAL);
   if(list==NULL || list.Total()==0)
      return "";
   CBuffer *buff=list.At(0);
   if(buff==NULL)
      return "";
   return buff.Label();
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Return the standard indicator short name                         |
//| by type and ID                                                   |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
string CBuffersCollection::GetIndicatorShortNameByTypeID(const ENUM_INDICATOR ind_type,const int id)
  {
   CArrayObj *list=this.GetListBufferByTypeID(ind_type,id);
   if(list==NULL || list.Total()==0)
      return "";
   CBuffer *buff=list.At(0);
   if(buff==NULL)
      return "";
   return buff.IndicatorShortName();
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

I have already considered the logic of such methods many times, and I believe everything is clear here. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the comments.

Now we need to implement access to all created methods in the CEngine library main class. Since I have already implemented all methods for creating standard indicator objects in the previous article, all I have to do now is change calling the methods returning the description of indicator lines and its short name:

//--- Prepare data of the calculated buffer of all created standard indicators
   bool                 BufferPreparingDataAllBuffersStdInd(void)                         { return this.m_buffers.PreparingDataAllBuffersStdInd();    }

//--- Return the standard indicator buffer description by type and ID
   string               BufferGetLabelByTypeID(const ENUM_INDICATOR ind_type,const int id,const ENUM_INDICATOR_LINE_MODE line_mode)
                          { return this.m_buffers.GetLabelByTypeID(ind_type,id,line_mode);                        }
//--- Return the standard indicator short name by type and ID
   string               BufferGetIndicatorShortNameByTypeID(const ENUM_INDICATOR ind_type,const int id)
                          { return this.m_buffers.GetIndicatorShortNameByTypeID(ind_type,id);                     }

//--- Display short description of all indicator buffers of the buffer collection

The methods return the result of calling same-name methods of the buffer collection class.

Now I only need to remove the implementation of the method I have moved to the buffer collection class from CEngine class:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Return the standard indicator buffer description                 |
//| by type and ID                                                   |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
string CEngine::BufferGetLabelByTypeID(const ENUM_INDICATOR ind_type,const int id)
  {
   CArrayObj *list=m_buffers.GetListBufferByTypeID(ind_type,id);
   if(list==NULL || list.Total()==0)
      return "";
   CBuffer *buff=list.At(0);
   if(buff==NULL)
      return "";
   return buff.Label();
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

Currently, these are all the changes to be implemented to create objects of multi-buffer standard indicators.


Test

To perform a test, let's take the indicator from the previous article and use it to create two new ones — the first one is to display multi-symbol multi-period standard indicators in a subwindow, while the second one is to do the same in the main window of a symbol chart.

The logic of the indicators has not changed in any way in comparison with the already considered test indicator from the previous article. I am only going to add the call of the methods for creating the necessary indicators in the OnInit() handler.

Save the indicator from the previous article in \MQL5\Indicators\TestDoEasy\Part49\ as TestDoEasyPart49_1.mq5.
This indicator is to create and display standard indicators in the current symbol chart subwindow. Its OnInit() handler will look as follows:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Custom indicator initialization function                         |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
int OnInit()
  {
//--- Write the name of the working timeframe selected in the settings to the InpUsedTFs variable
   InpUsedTFs=TimeframeDescription(InpPeriod);
//--- Initialize DoEasy library
   OnInitDoEasy();
   
//--- Set indicator global variables
   prefix=engine.Name()+"_";
   //--- calculate the number of bars of the current period fitting in the maximum used period
   //--- Use the obtained value if it exceeds 2, otherwise use 2
   int num_bars=NumberBarsInTimeframe(InpPeriod);
   min_bars=(num_bars>2 ? num_bars : 2);

//--- Check and remove remaining indicator graphical objects
   if(IsPresentObectByPrefix(prefix))
      ObjectsDeleteAll(0,prefix);

//--- Create the button panel

//--- Check playing a standard sound using macro substitutions
   engine.PlaySoundByDescription(SND_OK);
//--- Wait for 600 milliseconds
   engine.Pause(600);
   engine.PlaySoundByDescription(SND_NEWS);

//--- indicator buffers mapping
//--- Create all the necessary buffer objects for constructing a selected standard indicator
   bool success=false;
   switch(InpIndType)
     {
//--- Single-buffer standard indicators in a subwindow
      case IND_AC          :  success=engine.BufferCreateAC(InpUsedSymbols,InpPeriod,1);                                      break;
      case IND_AD          :  success=engine.BufferCreateAD(InpUsedSymbols,InpPeriod,VOLUME_TICK,1);                          break;

What's next?

In the next article, I will continue improving the library class for creating multi-symbol multi-period standard indicators, optimize the methods and get rid of unnecessary code in the library-based main indicator program.

All files of the current version of the library are attached below together with the test indicator files. for you to test and download.
Leave your questions, comments and suggestions in the comments.
Please keep in mind that here I have developed the MQL5 test indicator for MetaTrader 5.
The attached files are intended only for MetaTrader 5. The current library version has not been tested in MetaTrader 4.
After developing and testing the functionality for working with indicator buffers, I will try to implement some MQL5 features in MetaTrader 4.

Using cryptography with external applications Using cryptography with external applications

In this article, we consider encryption/decryption of objects in MetaTrader and in external applications. Our purpose is to determine the conditions under which the same results will be obtained with the same initial data.

Price series discretization, random component and noise Price series discretization, random component and noise

We usually analyze the market using candlesticks or bars that slice the price series into regular intervals. Doesn't such discretization method distort the real structure of market movements? Discretization of an audio signal at regular intervals is an acceptable solution because an audio signal is a function that changes over time. The signal itself is an amplitude which depends on time. This signal property is fundamental.

Auto-Generated Documentation for MQL5 Code Auto-Generated Documentation for MQL5 Code

Most Java coders will be familiar with the auto-generated documentation that can be created with JavaDocs. The idea is to add comments into the code in a semi-structured way that can then be extracted into an easy to navigate help file. The C++ world also has a number of documentation auto-generators, with Microsoft's SandCastle and Doxygen being two leaders. The article describes the use of Doxygen to create HTML help file from structured comments in MQL5 code. The experiment worked very well and I believe the help documentation that Doxygen produces from MQL5 code will add a great deal of value.
