Hi,


I've been testing the following EA using the tester:


https://www.mql5.com/en/code/103


The code compiles fine, and I was then able to test it with the strategy tester, which then all worked fine. However, when I then change the input values (TP and SP), and then compile, and then try it in the tester, the values are unchanged - i.e. they are the same as they were when I first compiled the program. This is even the case if I restart the program. I'm using version 298.


Regards,


Steven

Something for those who wants to try out new Strategy Tester and don't have any EA.

I do not think that it is a bug. In my opinion it is a feature.

You can load default settings of your expert using context menu (command Default) in input tab of strategy tester.

But at the moment, right clicking, within the Inputs tap, doesn't actually do anything.

Also, when I try to use the optimizer, I can't choose or change any of the variables. It worked on the previous update, but not this one.

Probably testing/optimization is still running. It's impossible to change input parameters during testing/optimization

Nope, no testing / optimization is running.

Before I run an optimization test, I can't change the values. But after I've run an optimization test, I can change the values.
