The Expert Advisor shows the application of LibCustomChart.ex5 library. The presence of iCustomChart custom chart is checked when attaching the Expert Advisor to a chart window. In case a custom chart has been uploaded, the library functions use the data of that chart. Otherwise, the data of a standard chart is used. Therefore, the Expert Advisor can work both with custom and standard charts without the need for any changes.


  1. Download LibCustomChart.ex5 library file and place it to the terminal_data_folder\MQL5\Libraries
  2. Download the file containing the library functions description LibCustomChart.mqh and place it to the terminal_data_folder\MQL5\Include
  3. Download the Example1_LibCustomChart.mq5 Expert Advisor file and place it to the terminal_data_folder\MQL5\Experts
  4. Download Example1_LibCustomChart.mq5 to MetaEditor and compile (F7)
  5. Example1_LibCustomChart.ex5 Expert Advisor can be launched both on a standard and custom chart created with the use of iCustomChart.
  6. The following steps must be executed to upload the Expert Advisor on a custom chart:
  • download demo or full version of iCustomChart and attach it to any chart window;
  • then attach Example1_LibCustomChart to the same window. It will automatically detect the presence of iCustomChart and get calculation data from it.
