can I find a script somewhere that counts all open orders? I found a lot of discussion about such features, but no solutions or none that did anything when installed. A simple count of all open orders would do, but additional functions would be lovely as well (total lot size open, buy vs sell, ...), or some addition to the Exposure tab.
Thank you for your kind reply.
I'm certain I'm not the first to require such a basic, trivial function. Surely someone has already written a working script in the past.
I'd be most grateful if someone could point me towards one.
Have you googled
MT4 script count open orders
Neither. You stated that you could not find "such a basic, trivial function. Surely someone has already written a working script in the past."
I used this, and in three seconds I found such scripts in
It is you that wasted everyone's time, by not doing "such a basic, trivial" search. I said it, Keith Watford said it, and then I said it more forcefully, which finally got you "the attention you seek."
You stated you could not find any "with an extended search through the mql forums." But I found them and Keith Watford said "Strange that we can find them but you can't." "You have earned the distinction of the two most" blatant lies "I have come across on this forum."
