Im new in MQL4 and i wrote a indicator with just global variables and int start() function. It works, but when i start the MT4 again the Indicator is dissapeared..

Which Code i need in my indicator that it is still in the Chart after New Starting MT4?

I am not sure whether you mean that the indicator has disappeared from the navigator window or that it is no longer attached to the chart.

You can check the Experts tab and see if there was a problem with the indicator on loading MT4.

Also, when you shut down your computer, make sure that you shut down MT4 first. If you don't, you may find that a lot of recent work has not been saved.

Usually when any indicator or ea disappear when starting terminal, most likely there is error occurs during initialization which leads to de-attachment.

tools -> options -> server -> Keep personal settings = checked

Check the Journal tab and see if any errors. Please also edit your post and use SRC (besides video icon) when posting codes.

The indicator works and there is no Error after Compiling; it isnt in the chart any more after i closed the terminal and started MT4 again.  At the moment i have to put it every time again on the chart..

The Code is this:

//Screener Hammer & Shooting Star
extern double Docht = 0.00015;
extern double Lunte = 0.00025;
extern double Koerper = 0.00015;

extern double Impuls_Long = 0.0008;
extern double Impuls_Short = 0.0008;
extern int sec = 3;

//Timeframe des Signals
extern int Timeframe = PERIOD_M5;

int start()

As far as I have understood you deleted init() - correct?

Have you tried your indicator with int init(){.. - if you don't need it, leave it empty except the return(0)?

Sven Hohmann
Sven Hohmann 2014.11.11 09:54  

I never used a init() function; Im new in MQL4 and I just know that the start() function is important.

You mean I should use the init for the start function? I Changed it, but it still doesnt work . How the code is changed?
