Make it as a parameter and then you shall be able to adjust the color too

             ArrayResize(params,5);
             int handel;
            
            
             //--- set ma_period
             params[0].type         =TYPE_INT;
             params[0].integer_value=15;
             //--- set ma_shift
             params[1].type         =TYPE_INT;
             params[1].integer_value=0;
             //--- set ma_method
             params[2].type         =TYPE_INT;
             params[2].integer_value=MODE_EMA;
             //--- set applied_price
             params[3].type         =TYPE_INT;
             params[3].integer_value=PRICE_CLOSE;
             //--- set color  
             params[4].type         =TYPE_COLOR;
             params[4].color_value = RoyalBlue  ;

The colors are not indicator parameters. You need to change the indicator's code and add colors as parameters to do what you want.

Which is not possible with MA by the way, so you will have to create a custom MA (or modify an existing one with available source code).

Hi Alian

I dont want change source cod .

I maked a button and i want add indicator on chart (with specified color and specified STYLE line) when i press the button

i have 2 way :

1 - use  changed cod

2 - use default indicator

Now i want us default indicator with iCustom or IndicatorCreate or iMA

you say i can not set the color and line style by IndicatorCreate

Can i set line color and line style by  iCustom or iMA ???

If i can ? How set color and line style ?

Please give me a sample if you can

I try this but not work

AddRem_MA_Handle=iCustom(Symbol(),PERIOD_CURRENT,"Examples\\Custom Moving Average",  15   ,  0  , MODE_EMA , PRICE_CLOSE , RoyalBlue );
ChartIndicatorAdd(0,0,AddRem_MA_Handle);
