A sorter class to sort an array based on other arrays.

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| class MultiSort<TItem,TKey1,TKey2,TKey3>.                        |
//| Usage: Sorter class to sort an array based on other arrays.      |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
template<typename TItem,typename TKey1,typename TKey2,typename TKey3>
class MultiSort
  {
public:
   //--- method to sort items by keys
   void              SortBy(TItem& items[],
                            TKey1& keys1[],
                            TKey2& keys2[],
                            TKey3& keys3[],
                            bool   ascending_order1=true,
                            bool   ascending_order2=true,
                            bool   ascending_order3=true);
  };


Note:

Empty keys arrays are ignored by the sorter.

For example to sort position tickets by position open time (as the only sort key):

   //--- sort tickets by position open time only
   MultiSort<long,datetime,int,int> sorter;
   int empty[];

   sorter.SortBy(tickets,times,empty,empty);


Here is a complete example

Free mt5 Copier Free mt5 Copier

Copy trading has become such a critical feature of forex trading. Some people see this as a potential business opportunity, while for opensource die-hards like me, we believe in giving back to the community rather than putting a price tag on everything 'nice'. So here it comes. A free opensource trade copier, which you are freely allowed to modify and distribute according to MIT license terms. It still has limited features, but the essentials like lot normalization are there. Please note that this copier only works for trading terminals installed on the same machine. Please share back any upgrades, enhancements or bug fixes to the discussion. Enjoy!
