This library is for callingl scripts from your indicator and expert advisors.

Around build 509, message parameter may have been changed.

wParam is 0x11, and lParam is the ordinal of Navigator tree view, starts from 0 (the top script is 0).

How to use:

  1. Add the following include line to your indicator or expert advisor

    #include <ScriptCaller.class.mqh>
  2. Add the following code to initialize/deinitialize class instance.

    ScriptCaller* g_scriptCaller = NULL;
    
    int OnInit()
    {
       g_scriptCaller = new ScriptCaller();
       return INIT_SUCCEEDED;
    }
    
    void OnDeinit(const int reason)
    {
       if (g_scriptCaller) {
           delete g_scriptCaller;
       }
    }
  3. Finally, put the following code to call script!

    g_scriptCaller.callScript("ScriptName"); // Do not end with .mq4
  4. If the script shows input dialog, and you want to close it automatically, call as follows.

    g_scriptCaller.callScript("ScriptName", true); // if the 2nd parameter is true, dialog will be closed automatically.
