An example of usage:


#include "TimeControl.mqh"

CTimeControl timeControl(false, true, true, false, false, false, false);

Or constructor with array of days settings and arrays for trading times in every day:

arrStartHours[7] = { 0, 15, 14, 0, 0, 0, 0};
arrStartMinutes[7] = { 0, 15, 14, 0, 0, 0, 0};

timeControl.SetDay(MONDAY, true);// enable monday
timeControl.EnableDay(MONDAY);   // enable monday
timeControl.DisableDay(MONDAY);  // disable monday

int iStartHour, iStopHour;
dStartMinute, dStopMinute;

timeControl.GetTradingTime(MONDAY, iStartHour, dStartMinute, iStopHour, dStopMinute);

or you can check every day with defined functions:

timeControl.DisableMonday(); //disable monday
