Concept

In this article, I will start the development of the library functionality aimed at working with symbol charts. This is the main working tool and I will try to make it very convenient. This will take a few articles. First, I will create a chart object which is to store all chart properties. We will be able to conveniently manage a chart by changing them. A set of chart object properties is to be a set of integer, real and string chart parameters. Along with a gradual and sequential chart object refinement, its set of parameters will change — some parameters will be added, some will be moved to other objects, etc. But let's start simple.

Apart from creating a chart object, I will also slightly improve the MQL5 signal object class and the collection class of MQL5.com Signals. Currently, working with the signal collection is arranged so that signal properties no longer change during the first creation of the full list of all available signals. Even if we try to update the collection list anew, it will simply obtain a signal that has newly appeared in MQL5.com Signals database. The signals previously added to the collection list will remain unchanged. This behavior is incorrect since signal properties change as a result of trading on a signal provider's account. Therefore, I will make it so that new signals are added to the list, while the properties of existing signals are updated during any update of the signal collection list.


Improving library classes

Currently, in the signal collection class of the library, all MQL5.com Signals parameter values are immediately entered into the appropriate properties of the MQL5 signal object in its constructor when creating a new signal object. We need to add the method, in which all values of selected signal parameters are set to the object properties. Thus, we will be able to select a necessary signal and call the new method to update the properties of the already existing signal object. We will also need the method selecting the necessary signal in MQL5.com signal datavase by the signal ID (in MQL5, the signal is selected only by its index but storing a signal index in the object properties is unreliable since signal indices in the database may change).

In \MQL5\Include\DoEasy\Objects\MQLSignalBase\MQLSignal.mqh, add three new public methods:
the method for writing parameter values of a selected MQL5.com signal into the appropriate signal object properties,
the method returning a signal index in the MQL5.com signal database by its ID and
the method selecting a signal having a specified ID in the MQL5.com signal database for further work:

//--- Compare CMQLSignal objects by a specified property (to sort the list by an MQL5 signal object)
   virtual int       Compare(const CObject *node,const int mode=0) const;
//--- Compare CMQLSignal objects by all properties (to search for equal MQL5 signal objects)
   bool              IsEqual(CMQLSignal* compared_obj) const;
   
//--- Set signal object properties
   void              SetProperties(void);
//--- Look for a signal with a specified ID in the database, return the signal index
   int               IndexBase(const long signal_id);
//--- Select a signal in the signal database by its ID
   bool              SelectBase(const long signal_id);
   
//--- Constructors
                     CMQLSignal(){;}
                     CMQLSignal(const long signal_id);

Pass the signal parameters entry to the appropriate object properties in the new SetProperties() method from the parametric class constructor:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Set object properties                                            |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
void CMQLSignal::SetProperties(void)
  {
   this.m_long_prop[SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_SUBSCRIPTION_STATUS]            = (::SignalInfoGetInteger(SIGNAL_INFO_ID)==this.ID());
   this.m_long_prop[SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_TRADE_MODE]                     = ::SignalBaseGetInteger(SIGNAL_BASE_TRADE_MODE);
   this.m_long_prop[SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_DATE_PUBLISHED]                 = ::SignalBaseGetInteger(SIGNAL_BASE_DATE_PUBLISHED);
   this.m_long_prop[SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_DATE_STARTED]                   = ::SignalBaseGetInteger(SIGNAL_BASE_DATE_STARTED);
   this.m_long_prop[SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_DATE_UPDATED]                   = ::SignalBaseGetInteger(SIGNAL_BASE_DATE_UPDATED);
   this.m_long_prop[SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_LEVERAGE]                       = ::SignalBaseGetInteger(SIGNAL_BASE_LEVERAGE);
   this.m_long_prop[SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_PIPS]                           = ::SignalBaseGetInteger(SIGNAL_BASE_PIPS);
   this.m_long_prop[SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_RATING]                         = ::SignalBaseGetInteger(SIGNAL_BASE_RATING);
   this.m_long_prop[SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_SUBSCRIBERS]                    = ::SignalBaseGetInteger(SIGNAL_BASE_SUBSCRIBERS);
   this.m_long_prop[SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_TRADES]                         = ::SignalBaseGetInteger(SIGNAL_BASE_TRADES);
   
   this.m_double_prop[this.IndexProp(SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_BALANCE)]      = ::SignalBaseGetDouble(SIGNAL_BASE_BALANCE);
   this.m_double_prop[this.IndexProp(SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_EQUITY)]       = ::SignalBaseGetDouble(SIGNAL_BASE_EQUITY);
   this.m_double_prop[this.IndexProp(SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_GAIN)]         = ::SignalBaseGetDouble(SIGNAL_BASE_GAIN);
   this.m_double_prop[this.IndexProp(SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_MAX_DRAWDOWN)] = ::SignalBaseGetDouble(SIGNAL_BASE_MAX_DRAWDOWN);
   this.m_double_prop[this.IndexProp(SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_PRICE)]        = ::SignalBaseGetDouble(SIGNAL_BASE_PRICE);
   this.m_double_prop[this.IndexProp(SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_ROI)]          = ::SignalBaseGetDouble(SIGNAL_BASE_ROI);
   
   this.m_string_prop[this.IndexProp(SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_AUTHOR_LOGIN)] = ::SignalBaseGetString(SIGNAL_BASE_AUTHOR_LOGIN);
   this.m_string_prop[this.IndexProp(SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_BROKER)]       = ::SignalBaseGetString(SIGNAL_BASE_BROKER);
   this.m_string_prop[this.IndexProp(SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_BROKER_SERVER)]= ::SignalBaseGetString(SIGNAL_BASE_BROKER_SERVER);
   this.m_string_prop[this.IndexProp(SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_NAME)]         = ::SignalBaseGetString(SIGNAL_BASE_NAME);
   this.m_string_prop[this.IndexProp(SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_CURRENCY)]     = ::SignalBaseGetString(SIGNAL_BASE_CURRENCY);
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

Since a signal should be preliminarily selected in the MQL5.com Signals database, obtaining signal parameter values and writing them to the object properties implies that the signal is selected beforehand.

In the class constructor, introduce calling the method instead of strings passed to a new method:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Parametric constructor                                           |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
CMQLSignal::CMQLSignal(const long signal_id)
  {
   this.m_long_prop[SIGNAL_MQL5_PROP_ID] = signal_id;
   this.SetProperties();
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

The method returning the index of a signal specified by ID in the MQL5.com Signals database:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Look for a signal with a specified ID in the database,           |
//| return the index of a detected signal                            |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
int CMQLSignal::IndexBase(const long signal_id)
  {
   int total=::SignalBaseTotal();
   for(int i=0;i<total;i++)
     {
      if(::SignalBaseSelect(i) && ::SignalBaseGetInteger(SIGNAL_BASE_ID)==signal_id)
         return i;
     }
   return WRONG_VALUE;
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

Here, in the loop by the total number of signals, select the next signal and compare its ID to the one passed to the method. If IDs match, return the loop index (which is a signal index in the database). If no signal with such ID is found, return -1.
After the method operation, the found signal remains selected in the Signals database for further work.
The following method selecting a signal specified by ID is based on that:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Select a signal by its ID in the signal database                 |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
bool CMQLSignal::SelectBase(const long signal_id)
  {
   return(this.IndexBase(signal_id)!=WRONG_VALUE);
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

The method returns the flag indicating that the search for a signal by a specified ID has no returned -1, i.e. if the signal index is found (it is not equal to -1), the signal is selected (true is returned). If searching for a signal returns -1, false is returned meaning there is no signal with such ID and it is not selected, accordingly.

In the file of the MQL5 signal collection class \MQL5\Include\DoEasy\Collections\MQLSignalsCollection.mqh, make some minor changes to the method of updating the collection list:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Update the collection list of MQL5 signal objects                |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
void CMQLSignalsCollection::Refresh(const bool messages=true)
  {
   this.m_signals_base_total=::SignalBaseTotal();
   //--- loop through all signals in the signal database
   for(int i=0;i<this.m_signals_base_total;i++) 
     { 
      //--- Select a signal from the signal database by the loop index
      if(!::SignalBaseSelect(i))
         continue;
      //--- Get the current signal ID and
      //--- create a new MQL5 signal object based on it
      long id=::SignalBaseGetInteger(SIGNAL_BASE_ID);
      CMQLSignal *signal=new CMQLSignal(id);
      if(signal==NULL)
         continue;
      //--- Set the sorting flag for the list by signal ID
      this.m_list.Sort(SORT_BY_SIGNAL_MQL5_ID);
      //--- Get the index of the MQL5 signal object in the list
      int index=this.m_list.Search(signal);
      //--- If such an object exists (the index exceeds -1)
      if(index!=WRONG_VALUE)
        {
         //--- Remove the newly created object,
         delete signal;
         //--- get the pointer to such an object in the list
         signal=this.m_list.At(index);
         //--- if the pointer is received, update all signal properties
         if(signal!=NULL)
            signal.SetProperties();
         //--- move on to the next loop iteration
         continue;
        }
      //--- No such object in the collection list yet
      //--- If failed to add a new signal object to the collection list,
      //--- remove the created object and go to the next loop iteration
      if(!this.m_list.InsertSort(signal))
        {
         delete signal;
         continue;
        }
      //--- If an MQL5 signal object is successfully added to the collection
      //--- and the new object message flag is set in the parameters passed to the method,
      //--- display a message about a newly found signal
      else if(messages)
        {
         ::Print(DFUN,CMessage::Text(MSG_MQLSIG_COLLECTION_TEXT_SIGNALS_NEW),":");
         signal.PrintShort(true);
        }
     } 
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

Here, in the new code block, the entire logic is described in the comments. In short, objects present in the collection are not skipped. Instead, the new SetProperties() method described above is called for them. This method enters the values of the appropriate parameters of a signal selected in the database to all object properties.

This concludes the improvement of the classes for working with MQL5.com Signals.

Let's start the development of the chart object class.

A chart and, accordingly, a chart object feature quite a lot of parameters. First, we need to create new text messages related to the chart object.

See the article 19 for general understanding of messages, message index constants and lists. The article describes the development of the library message class in detail.

To display a description of some properties of a created chart object, I will need two functions — for returning the description of the chart display mode (bars, candles, line) and for returning the mode of displaying volumes on the chart (not displayed, tick, real). Add the functions to the service functions file \MQL5\Include\DoEasy\Services\DELib.mqh, so that they always remain at hand:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Return the description of the method of displaying a price chart |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
string ChartModeDescription(ENUM_CHART_MODE mode)
  {
   return
     (
      mode==CHART_BARS     ? CMessage::Text(MSG_CHART_OBJ_CHART_BARS)      :
      mode==CHART_CANDLES  ? CMessage::Text(MSG_CHART_OBJ_CHART_CANDLES)   :
      CMessage::Text(MSG_CHART_OBJ_CHART_LINE)
     );
  }
//+--------------------------------------------------------------------------+
//|Return the description of the mode of displaying volumes on a price chart |
//+--------------------------------------------------------------------------+
string ChartModeVolumeDescription(ENUM_CHART_VOLUME_MODE mode)
  {
   return
     (
      mode==CHART_VOLUME_TICK ? CMessage::Text(MSG_CHART_OBJ_CHART_VOLUME_TICK)  :
      mode==CHART_VOLUME_REAL ? CMessage::Text(MSG_CHART_OBJ_CHART_VOLUME_REAL)  :
      CMessage::Text(MSG_CHART_OBJ_CHART_VOLUME_HIDE)
     );
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

Both functions receive the appropriate chart property. Its compliance with one of the enumeration constants is checked and the string description of the chart/volume mode is returned.

Each of the library objects features the list of properties set in \MQL5\Include\DoEasy\Defines.mqh. The chart object is no exception. Let's set all the necessary properties for it in three enumerations of integer, real and string properties:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Data for working with charts                                     |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| List of possible chart events                                    |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
#define CHART_EVENTS_NEXT_CODE  (SIGNAL_MQL5_EVENTS_NEXT_CODE+1)   // The code of the next event after the last chart event code
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Chart integer property                                           |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

Three properties in the enumeration of integer object properties are not needed yet, so they are commented out. They have been added here because the chart features them but they are related not only to the chart object (chart main window) but also to the main window subwindows, so they cannot belong exclusively to a single chart object. These properties will be activated later.

As usual, after adding new object property enumerations, we need to add the enumeration of possible object sorting criteria:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

Learn more about the library objects in the first and several subsequent articles.

Now everything is ready for creating the chart object class.

Chart object class

In the library directory's new folder \MQL5\Include\DoEasy\Objects\Chart\, create the new file ChartObj.mqh of the CChartObj class.

The base object of all library objects should be a base object. Its file should be connected to the class file:

class CChartObj : public CBaseObj
  {
  }

In the private class section, add the standard arrays for storing the library properties, the methods returning the actual property index in the array and the class member variable for storing the Digits() value of a symbol.

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Chart object class                                               |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
class CChartObj : public CBaseObj
  {
private:
   long              m_long_prop[CHART_PROP_INTEGER_TOTAL];       // Integer properties
   double            m_double_prop[CHART_PROP_DOUBLE_TOTAL];      // Real properties
   string            m_string_prop[CHART_PROP_STRING_TOTAL];      // String properties
   int               m_digits;                                    // Symbol's Digits()
   
//--- Return the index of the array the (1) double and (2) string properties are actually located at
   int               IndexProp(ENUM_CHART_PROP_DOUBLE property)   const { return(int)property-CHART_PROP_INTEGER_TOTAL;                         }
   int               IndexProp(ENUM_CHART_PROP_STRING property)   const { return(int)property-CHART_PROP_INTEGER_TOTAL-CHART_PROP_DOUBLE_TOTAL; }

In the public class section, write all methods that are standard for the library objects: the methods of installing and returning the object properties, the virtual methods returning the flags of supporting a property by the object (although I will not implement descendant objects, the methods should be virtual so that they can be changed in the descendant classes if needed), the methods returning the property descriptions, the methods of displaying in the journal and describing the object properties and names, the comparison methods and constructors.

public:
//--- Set object's (1) integer, (2) real and (3) string properties
   void              SetProperty(ENUM_CHART_PROP_INTEGER property,long value)    { this.m_long_prop[property]=value;                      }
   void              SetProperty(ENUM_CHART_PROP_DOUBLE property,double value)   { this.m_double_prop[this.IndexProp(property)]=value;    }
   void              SetProperty(ENUM_CHART_PROP_STRING property,string value)   { this.m_string_prop[this.IndexProp(property)]=value;    }
//--- Return object’s (1) integer, (2) real and (3) string property from the properties array
   long              GetProperty(ENUM_CHART_PROP_INTEGER property)         const { return this.m_long_prop[property];                     }
   double            GetProperty(ENUM_CHART_PROP_DOUBLE property)          const { return this.m_double_prop[this.IndexProp(property)];   }
   string            GetProperty(ENUM_CHART_PROP_STRING property)          const { return this.m_string_prop[this.IndexProp(property)];   }
//--- Return itself
   CChartObj        *GetObject(void)                                             { return &this;}

//--- Return the flag of the object supporting this property
   virtual bool      SupportProperty(ENUM_CHART_PROP_INTEGER property)           { return true; }
   virtual bool      SupportProperty(ENUM_CHART_PROP_DOUBLE property)            { return true; }
   virtual bool      SupportProperty(ENUM_CHART_PROP_STRING property)            { return true; }

//--- Get description of (1) integer, (2) real and (3) string properties
   string            GetPropertyDescription(ENUM_CHART_PROP_INTEGER property);
   string            GetPropertyDescription(ENUM_CHART_PROP_DOUBLE property);
   string            GetPropertyDescription(ENUM_CHART_PROP_STRING property);

//--- Display the description of object properties in the journal (full_prop=true - all properties, false - supported ones only)
   void              Print(const bool full_prop=false);
//--- Display a short description of the object in the journal
   virtual void      PrintShort(const bool dash=false);
//--- Return the object short name
   virtual string    Header(void);
   
//--- Compare CChartObj objects by a specified property (to sort the list by a specified chart object property)
   virtual int       Compare(const CObject *node,const int mode=0) const;
//--- Compare CChartObj objects by all properties (to search for equal chart objects)
   bool              IsEqual(CChartObj* compared_obj) const;
   
//--- Constructors
                     CChartObj(){;}
                     CChartObj(const long chart_id);

This is a standard set of library object methods. They were discussed and described many times already, so I will not dwell on them.

When creating a chart object, it is assumed that the appropriate chart is selected and its properties can be obtained using the ChartGetInteger(), ChartGetDouble() and ChartGetString() functions. Therefore, in the class constructor, all chart object properties are simply filled with the values returned by the appropriate function properties and the symbol's Digits() value is set in the appropriate variable:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Parametric constructor                                           |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
CChartObj::CChartObj(const long chart_id)
  {
//--- Set integer properties
   this.SetProperty(CHART_PROP_ID,chart_id);                                                             // Chart ID
   this.SetProperty(CHART_PROP_TIMEFRAME,::ChartPeriod(this.ID()));                                      // Chart timeframe
   this.SetProperty(CHART_PROP_SHOW,::ChartGetInteger(this.ID(),CHART_SHOW));                            // Price chart drawing attribute
   this.SetProperty(CHART_PROP_IS_OBJECT,::ChartGetInteger(this.ID(),CHART_IS_OBJECT));                  // Chart object identification attribute

The passed property is checked for its belonging to integer, real or string properties. The property of the current object is compared to the property of the one passed to the method for comparison in the appropriate code block. The result of a comparison that is greater than (1), less than (-1), or equal to (0) is returned.

All subsequent properties of two objects (the current one and the one passed to the method) are compared in three loops by all object properties. If at least one pair of the same properties of two compared objects is not identical, false is returned — the objects are not identical. Upon completion of all loops by all properties, true is returned — no different properties, meaning the objects are identical.

In three loops by all object properties, receive the description of each subsequent property and print it to the journal.

The method displaying the short object description in the journal:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Display a short description of the object in the journal         |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
void CChartObj::PrintShort(const bool dash=false)
  {
   ::Print((dash ? "- " : ""),this.Header()," ID: ",(string)this.ID(),", HWND: ",(string)this.Handle());
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

The method receives the flag indicating the necessity to display a hyphen before an object description. The hyphen is needed in the chart object collection class to display a short description of the entire collection. By default, there is no hyphen. The method creates the string featuring the object description and some of its additional properties — chart ID and window handle.

The method returning a short object name:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Return the object short name                                     |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
string CChartObj::Header(void)
  {
   return(CMessage::Text(MSG_CHART_OBJ_CHART_WINDOW)+" "+this.Symbol()+" "+TimeframeDescription(this.Timeframe()));
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

A string consisting of a header and names of a chart symbol and timeframe is created in the method.

All these methods are standard for library objects and form the basis of each object. For the convenient use of these methods, I usually add methods for quick access to the object properties. I will have multiple methods since the chart object features many different properties.
Basically, all its properties are flags indicating the status of a chart parameter. They can be enabled or disabled, i.e. there are only two states. This means we need the methods for setting the flags of such object properties. These will be private methods. The methods enabling and disabling a property will be made public. This makes them more convenient to use.

In the private section of the class, declare the methods for setting the flags of some object properties, the methods for setting the properties having a boundary number of values (3 and 6), as well as the methods for setting only the chart object properties — for read-only chart parameters — to be able to set a value of an appropriate chart parameter to the chart object property:

Implement the declared private methods outside the class body.
The methods of setting flags are identical to each other.
Therefore, let's consider the logic using the method setting the flag of drawing a price chart:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Set the flag of drawing the price chart                          |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
bool CChartObj::SetShowFlag(const string source,const bool flag,const bool redraw=false)
  {
   ::ResetLastError();
   if(!::ChartSetInteger(this.ID(),CHART_SHOW,flag))
     {
      CMessage::ToLog(source,::GetLastError(),true);
      return false;
     }
   this.SetProperty(CHART_PROP_SHOW,flag);
   if(redraw)
      ::ChartRedraw(this.ID());
   return true;
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

The method receives the source (source) — name of the method the private method was called from, the flag value (flag) that should be set in the chart parameters and the chart object property, as well as the flag indicating the necessity to redraw the chart (redraw).

The functions of working with ChartSet* charts are asynchronous. This means they return only the result of placing the command to the chart event queue rather than the result of changing the parameter itself. Usually, the result of the function operation appears after a certain chart event — changing its size, new tick arrival, chart update, etc. To display the parameter change immediately, we need to forcibly update the chart. This is done by the ChartRedraw() function.

However, the change usually affects several chart parameters at once, i.e. most often this is a batch change. In this case, we should first send all events of changes in all the necessary chart parameters and call the forced chart redraw afterwards to avoid redrawing the chart after each parameter change command. The redraw flag is used for that. By default, it is set to false.

The first thing we do here is send a chart parameter change command. If the event is not set to the queue, report an error and return false.
If the event has been successfully set into the queue, change the chart object property. If the redraw flag is activated, forcibly redraw the chart. Return true — the method operation is successful.

Implementation of the remaining private methods for setting the flags is identical to the considered one. Let's provide their full listing:

Three private methods for setting chart, scale and chart volumes display modes:

The methods are also identical to the ones considered above except for the inputs, in which the required modes are passed instead of the flags, while the limits of the passed scale value (0-5) are additionally checked in the method of setting the chart scale.

The charts feature the properties that are impossible to set. They can only be obtained. But in order for the chart object to have the same values as the chart, we need methods allowing us to enter the values of the chart parameters into the corresponding object properties. They are set when creating the chart object, but if they are changed by the terminal, then we will need to react to this change in time and make the appropriate edits to the chart object properties.
The following private methods are meant for that:

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

  {
   this.SetProperty(CHART_PROP_EXPERT_NAME,::ChartGetString(this.ID(),CHART_EXPERT_NAME));
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

The chart parameter is set to the appropriate object property here. Working with these methods will be implemented in the coming articles.

Now we need to add the methods for a simplified access to the chart object properties into the public class section. These will be the methods for enabling/disabling the chart parameters, setting the color, size and other functionality that is necessary for working with the chart.

The methods are quite numerous. So let's divide them into groups.

The methods of returning/setting properties to Enabled/Disabled status:

//--- Constructors
                     CChartObj(){;}
                     CChartObj(const long chart_id);
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+ 
//| Methods of simplified access to chart object properties          |

All methods of setting flags are identical and return the result of the appropriate private methods of setting flags discussed above. The methods of returning the properties return the value set in the appropriate object property. The last two methods only set flags since there is no way to return the "Above all others" chart property using the ChartGetInteger() function with the CHART_BRING_TO_TOP ID since this chart property is meant only for writing the values.

The methods of returning the property values here are identical to the methods of returning flags — the value set in the appropriate object property is returned. The methods of setting values return the result of private methods with the specified value that is to be set to the object and chart property.

The methods return the value set to the appropriate chart object property.

The methods returning/setting chart parameter values the subwindow index should be specified for:

//--- (1) Return and (2) set the height of the specified chart in pixels
   int               WindowHeightInPixels(const int sub_window)      const { return (int)::ChartGetInteger(this.ID(),CHART_HEIGHT_IN_PIXELS,sub_window);       }
   bool              SetWindowHeightInPixels(const int height,const int sub_window,const bool redraw=false);
   
//--- Return the distance in Y axis pixels between the upper frame of the indicator subwindow and the upper frame of the chart main window
   int               WindowYDistance(const int sub_window)           const { return (int)::ChartGetInteger(this.ID(),CHART_WINDOW_YDISTANCE,sub_window);       }
   
//--- Return the specified subwindow visibility
   bool              IsVisibleWindow(const int sub_window)           const { return (bool)::ChartGetInteger(this.Handle(),CHART_WINDOW_IS_VISIBLE,sub_window); }
   
//--- Return the minimum of the specified chart
   double            PriceMinimum(const int sub_window)              const { return ::ChartGetDouble(this.ID(),CHART_PRICE_MIN,sub_window);  }

//--- Return the maximum of the specified chart
   double            PriceMaximum(const int sub_window)              const { return ::ChartGetDouble(this.ID(),CHART_PRICE_MAX,sub_window);  }

These methods are set here temporarily. Later, the chart object will have the list of indicator subwindows belonging to the chart. The numbers of these subwindows should be specified in the functions of setting/returning the values, so the methods are to be revised. Therefore, the values are returned directly from the chart described by the chart object, rather than from the object properties.

The method for tick emulation:

//--- Emulate a tick (chart updates - similar to the terminal Refresh command)
   void              EmulateTick(void)                                     { ::ChartSetSymbolPeriod(this.ID(),this.Symbol(),this.Timeframe());}

  };
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Parametric constructor                                           |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

The call of the ChartSetSymbolPeriod() function while specifying the symbol and timeframe similar to that of the current chart can be used for updating the chart (similar to the Refresh command in the terminal). In its turn, the chart update triggers re-calculation of the indicators attached to it. Thus, it is possible to calculate an indicator on the chart even if there are no ticks (e.g., on weekends).

Implement declared methods in the block of methods for a simplified access to the object properties outside the class body.

The methods are identical to the private methods considered above and have the same logic, so I will leave them for you to study. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the comments below.

This completes the creation of the chart object. Find its full listing in the library files attached below.


Test

To perform the test, I will use the EA from the previous article and save it in the new folder \MQL5\Experts\TestDoEasy\Part67\ as TestDoEasyPart67.mq5.

Open three charts of different instruments. The EA is to work on the first one, while two others will simply remain open. During the first launch, the EA reads all charts, creates the appropriate chart objects, adds them to the temporarily created list and reads the created list displaying the short descriptions of chart objects from it. Display the full chart object description for the very first chart the EA works on.

Since the class signals are now included using the main object of the CEngine library, instead of the string for including the MQL5 signal object class

add the code block for working with chart objects:

The entire logic is described in the code and requires no additional explanations. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the comments below.

This is all I wanted to do in the current article.

Compile the EA, open three charts in the terminal and launch the EA on the first of them, while preliminarily specifying "Work only with the current symbol and timeframe" in the parameters:


During the first tick, the EA creates three chart objects and displays short descriptions of the three created chart objects in addition to the messages about the initialization of various library classes:

Chart window EURUSD H4 ID: 131733844391938630, HWND: 918600
Chart window AUDUSD H1 ID: 131733844391938632, HWND: 1182638
Chart window GBPUSD H4 ID: 131733844391938633, HWND: 1705036

Next, display the full description of all properties of the chart object describing the first terminal chart:

What's next?

In the next article, I will expand the features of the chart object by creating subwindow objects for it and create the chart object collection.

All files of the current version of the library are attached below together with the test EA file for MQL5 for you to test and download.
I do not recommend using chart objects in your work in their current state since they are to be changed further.
Leave your questions and suggestions in the comments.
