What is the most efficient way to test a custom indicator? The only way i know is to attach it to active charts and waiting for it to work. Any suggestion would be great.

You can try the strategy tester here.

You can test an indicator in that? It is my understanding that you can only test EAs in the strategy tester.

In that case, you have to rewrite the indicator as an EA and recompile, which isn't always easy.

You can run any EA in the Strategy Tester and add your Indicator to the chart or o the tester.tpl . . . a word of caution though, the Strategy Tester is for testing EAs so some things do not work correctly for some Indicators.
