I like MTF_RSX sorry that it no where.
Could you guys upload that standardentry_std indicator...
The quick answer is Yes....the indicator name is always written between the quotation marks... It is important to spell the indicator name EXACTLY the same...which means including spaces, underlines, characters that are in the indicator name..
Another important issue is making sure you have the correct number of "extern variables" included in the iCustom statement. This seems to be the biggest problem for new coders to understand.
Always look at the "extern variables" in the indicator itself...these are the user settings that the iCustom needs to have to get the correct data from the indicator.
Below is an example I provided earlier of this problem for another member:
The original code was presented with only 3 "extern variables" included in the iCustom statement.
The #MTF-Schaff Trend Cycle has more "extern" settings that need to be included in the iCustom statements (total of 5 settings need to be included):
//---- input parameters
extern int TimeFrame=0;
extern int MAShort=23;
extern int MALong=50;
extern double Cycle=10;
extern int CountBars=300;
Original (Problem Code):
iCustom(Symbol(),0,"#MTF-Schaff Trend Cycle",60,0,i);
iCustom(Symbol(),0,"#MTF-Schaff Trend Cycle",60,23,50,10,300,i);
So not only does the indicator name have to be spelled correctly inside the quotes, the iCustom statement also needs all the "extern variables" to work correctly.
Hope this helps you...and the more you learn, the more you can have fun playing with the code...and be more successful in your trading!
Well, basically yes.
I think cosmiclifeform has already answered your question in details, thank you for it.
I would add that if an indicator (or EA) does not work and/or there is an error message under the Experts tab of the MT4 platform, the user should check the code (provided it was available). If the source code is not available, then the error message under Experts tab usually contains info about the missing files.
Beside iCustom function the user should check some other things as well, e.g. #import or #include commands that usually are placed at the beginning of the code.
You can find more info under Search tab of MetaEditor's Navigator window putting in the name of the command or function, etc. in question.
@ xx3xxx ... @ cosmiclifeform ... @ Chrisstoff
many many times for your explanations and your patience. I hope that I will be a successful student of MT4.
Sorry that I confused you. Here is standardentry_std again and also W%R_MA_LC which you need in your indicator folder to enable standardentry_std.
Happy trading and many pips for all of you

Multiple Time frame Exponential Moving Averages.
My trading strategy is based on 2 time frames 4 h and daily chart. Do you guys know any indicator that shows daily 3, 5 and 13 Exponential moving averages on 4 hour chart???
I tried to multiply moving averages with 6 to get the daily exponential moving averages on 4 hour but there is huge difference than real.
The purpose of this indicator is solely for back testing because i want to see the shape and angle of moving averages of daily chart on 4 h time frame.
Kindly reply as soon as possible.
It should be MTF
maybe increase solved your problem by attaching W%R MA LC.mq4. I'm not sure about this.
thank you for helping patona with the missing W%R. Although I can't imagine why you need it ... I took all indicators off from a Metatrader exept those who are included (look at the picture) and Standard Entry worked like it should.
Maybe this is sth for the authors of "X-Files"
is standard entry repaints???????????????????????????????????
I did not notice that it would repaint ... but I will observe it next week.Have a nice weekend
