Let me add that you can get a function list of your own functions quite easily:
1) (in Win7) load C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++\functionList.xml
2) add this: <association userDefinedLangName="mql4" id="mql4_sytax"/>
3) add this in the next section:
(I just copied them from c further below and there is as well one for c++ - may be valid for mql5.)
I f you now click on the Function List button (or in menu => View => Function List) you see a window with the list of all your functions of the actual mql4 or mqh file.
A click on a function and you are there!
Here the example of Statistics.mqh:
You can sort the functions alphabetically :)
Thank you for posting this! I copied the parser for c++ and it now you can view functions by class with mql.
I also forgot to mention, in response to version control and diff view, there are some really cool free tools that I much prefer over the built in MQL5 storage and version control. The first, bitbucket.org allows free private repositories and overall I like it better than github. Next, you're going to need git. The command line is always good, but I've recent fallen in love with the git GUI - SourceTree. Here you can access everything at a quick glance.
You can integrate external diff viewers to work with sourcetree to manage merge conflict and view file diff. I personally like DiffMerge.
I am completely uneducated in RE, so it takes me ages to adopt the parser. I am missing a match for constructors, both simple and with the ":" extension. If any one knows how to fix the parser for them, I would appreciate it.
I am also missing the inner classes in the tree, while their functions get assigned to the outer class (like the picture below), however I do not hope the parser can be configured to manage them.
No, and I do not plan. Is there some really good reason I should?
Yes. notepad++ is obsolete. I wrote some vscode extensions that not only highlight mql syntax but use the c++ intellisence with MQL so you can do everything you'd expect from an IDE like peek definitions, etc. I'd say give it a try... install vscode, click the extensions tab, search "mql", and install the "MQL Extension pack".
how can copy text to clipboard in mql5?
I tried most of the answers but unfortunately did not get any results.
Why are you asking in the mql4 section?
