The variable name is a constant. The name of the variable is unchanged.


I found a clear use case example:

$Reno = 360000;
$Pasadena = 138000;
$cityname = "Reno";
echo "The size of $cityname is ${$cityname}";
$cityname = "Pasadena";
echo "The size of $cityname is ${$cityname}";
//The output from this code is

//The size of Reno is 360000
//The size of Pasadena is 138000

Will be my last attempt at explaining myself ;)

And why do we need such an indicator? What is the idea of ​​using it?


so we can know how we perform on the current day, either win or lose on trading.

that's big effect on trader emotion.

Where is the trading idea? What gives knowledge: today we are in profit or loss? How should this affect the trade of an adviser?

Sorry, only MQL5 is discussed here. All questions on the old code you can solve in the service Freelance.

echo "The size of $cityname is ${$cityname}";


if yes it would be amazing ....mmmmh more complex programming ...i could eat that language

hey, no the point of using dynamic variables is, that i want call a list of classes and store them in a array. Now i use a construct of if conditions with hard coded class names. but i would be fancy to have a array of classnames and than call them such as:

$class = "foobar";

${ $class } myclass = new ${ $class }();


this is a very simple example without a loop and without a base class ( class interface )


i use this in perl to load modules for example. but i had this discussion in another thread and i guess it's not posible because the var names are static.

That's right, in MQL5  the var names are static.
