New article Building an Interactive Application to Display RSS Feeds in MetaTrader 5 has been published at

In this article we look at the possibility of creating an application for the display of RSS feeds. The article will show how aspects of the Standard Library can be used to create interactive programs for MetaTrader 5.

The article "Reading RSS News Feeds by Means of MQL4" described a rather rudimentary script that could be used to display RSS feeds in the terminal's console, by means of a simple library that was originally built for parsing HTML-documents.

With the advent of MetaTrader 5 and the MQL5 programming language I thought it possible to create an interactive application that would be able to display RSS content better. This article describes how to produce this application using the extensive MQL5 Standard library and some other tools developed by MQL5 community contributors.

2.11. The Expert Advisor code

The Expert Advisor has no input variables since the application is meant to be entirely interactive.

Enter a web address and the RSS content will be loaded into the application dialogue, as depicted by the image below:
