Hello,

Usually we use OrderMagicNumber() to identify whether the active order opened by given EA or not. Can we always use always OrderComment() for this purpose?

Thanks

I see, so we still can use it on active order?

In my opinion yes... According to phy's info you should comment content tests provide using https://docs.mql4.com/strings/StringFind function.

Beware... if you take partial take profit where lots value is less than OrderLots() the terminal will 100% close your order --> reopen new order with new ticket# for the remaining lots.
Magic# gets assigned to this new order - but your comment will not contain what you put there on OrderSend()

Note that I'm only expanding on what phy rightly stated originally...


fred GBPUSD,H1: deinit() called, "done"=1
fred GBPUSD,H1: <EAprint> after final Close of remaining Lots: OrderLots()=1, and expect EMPTY ticket#: getTicket(magic#123)=-1, and expect zero orders in terminal: OrdersTotal()=0
fred GBPUSD,H1: close #3 buy 1.00 GBPUSD at 2.0086 sl: 2.0061 tp: 2.0111 at price 2.0083
