Do you know that MQL5 can create custom graphical tools?

Hi

I have an Ea that I am forward testing and would like to take a screen shot when it opens and closes a trade. I have tried a number of scripts and indictors that I have found online but none work, does anyone have any suggestions on how I might do this?

Many thanks

Add the code to your EA to do it . . . check out WindowScreenShot()

Hi Raptor

Thank you for replying but I do not have a clue where to begin with coding - I wouldn't even have the faintest idea where to put the code that you directed me to.

If you could advise on that I would be appreciative but I am sure you have better things to do.

Ask the person that created the EA to do it for you.

I did, they are looking into it.  I thought there might have been options already online - there are, but I can't get any to work.

 Thanks for your help.
