Dear all,

I have an indicator named "ma_bar".

when I use it in another indicator using iCustom(NULL,0,"ma_bar",0,i) (e.g. a[i] = iCustom(NULL,0,"ma_bar",0,i); ), it works properly.

however, when I use it in an EA using  iCustom(NULL,0,"ma_bar",0,1) (e.g. if( iCustom(NULL,0,"ma_bar",0,1) > 0.1 ) ) , it returns 0.0000 values at every ontick loop in backtesting when I use Print command to check  (Print(DoubleToStr(iCustom(NULL,0,"ma_bar",0,1),Digits)), (what make me mad is, in backtesting, the chart added the indicator successfully and showed value of every bar correctly!)

I have tried to create an variable (double c1) to store the value and use c1 to make calculation but it still didn't work.

does anyone know why?

What you're saying makes no sense. Don't tell us what you're doing, post the code. (iCustom and indicator.)
