Hello

Anyone else had this?  I've attached an Alert from this code:



void afxSetAllChartsToPeriod(int _period) {
        long chid=ChartFirst();
        Alert("First chart is ",chid, "sym ",ChartSymbol(chid));
        
        chid=ChartNext(chid);
        Alert("Second chart is ",chid, "sym ",ChartSymbol(chid));

}
and I see the attached output.shot of alerts window



It appears that the ChartSymbol function isnt always able to use the (correct) window ID to get the symbol.  This was working for me, and recently stopped.

Hmm, I see that MT4 is at build 1045 latest.   When you said 'were' I presumed they had fixed them.

Anyone know when a fixed version will be available?  The site news https://www.metaquotes.net/en/metatrader4/news/4917 suggests none.

@honest_knave could you incline what those problems were please?
