thanks for the quick response.. i just deleted my last question as I have solved it.
I just needed to force MT5, like this:
I think the document may have a typo as it refers to 'startup_version' which didn't seem to work, whereas just 'version' does.
Hi guys, can i just confirm that the Mobile Web terminal and Mobile Web widget are only supported on Mt5? In other words if i want to use this affilliate feature on my mobile app, the Broker will need to have MT5 servers? There's no way of getting the MT5 web front end to communicate with an MT4 server backend? This is quite a limitation, as there don't seem to be that many Brokers using MT5 as far as I can see.
No you can just switch between MT4 and MT5 from the file menu in the webterminal but there are a lot of brokers that are running older server software and then when you try to connect the webterminal, you will see the message that your broker's server does not currently support the web trader so its a good idea to look into that before you proceed.
Hi, I prefer to use a widget within my app, as swapping between apps isn't a great UX. Also, re the above, is it possible to have the mobile widget load as MT5 (so it works on mobile) but connected to an MT4 server? As what i'm seeing is that on mobile as soon as you select MT4 the web app/widget goes back to desktop view.
No a MT4 and MT5 servers are different and accounts can not be mixed.
The web terminal supports additional customization parameters:
i have a bunch of questions regarding the affilliate linking for MT4/5 native apps, mentioned at the bottom here: https://www.mql5.com/en/welcome/en-build-affiliate-program-and-attract-new-traders
is this the right thread, or is there another one?
What are the questions?
So regarding the MT Mobile native app integration mentioned at the bottom of the article: https://www.mql5.com/en/welcome/en-build-affiliate-program-and-attract-new-traders
But then go on to specify MT5:
‘The MetaTrader 5 mobile apps that are downloaded by using these links will be automatically
bound to your trade servers.’
Is this MT5 only or does it work
