hello, my EA loads its settings from a TXT File.

 I am using MQL VPS. How can I upload this TXT file when I syncronize my EA? do I have to put it in a specific folder?

 

thanks in advance and best regards.

Sending Files

If a certain file is required for an Expert Advisor or indicator, you can send it to the virtual terminal by specifying a #property parameter:

  • #property tester_file "data_file_name"- for sending a file from <data_folder>\MQL5\Files or <data_folder>\MQL4\Files
  • #property tester_indicator "indicator_name" - for sending a custom indicator from <data_folder>\MQL5\Indicators or <data_folder>\MQL4\Indicators
  • #property tester_library - "library_name" - for sending a library from <data_folder>\MQL5\Libraries or <data_folder>\MQL4\Libraries
