I have written a custom indicator that puts up an alert box and play the alert sound when my criteria are met, but it makes the alert sound on every tick.

How do I make sure it only alerts me on the first signal and not on every tick.


eg:


if (X,y,z)

{

Alert("Signal")

}


how do I make sure the above example does not alert me every tick that those criteria are true but rather only the 1st time those criteria come true?


thanx

bool firstTime = true;
if (X,y,z)
{

 if (firstTime)
 {
   Alert("Signal");
   firstTime = false;
 } 
}

if you would just paste that code in your EA, it wouldnt work :D


declare firstTime as a global variable. and

firstTime = true;

put into the init() function.

Garfield I tried it but it does not seem to work, I am new to coding so Im sure I am doing something wrong, can you please take a look at my code and see if you can tell me what I am doing wrong...


I will post my indy with the indy's it uses.

thanx

Now my indy is not alerting me when all the conditions are met....it does not wait for the CCI 34 to be in the correct place.

Ok thank you, that works now, now all I have to figure out is why the idy signals before all the criteria are met....frustrating me a bit. ;)
