Is compile in editor followed by refresh in mt4 enough or should I always reload the whole mt4 while editing mq4 files back and forth? Both equally effective?
When you compile in the editor you don't need to do anything - associated terminal will automatically refresh the compiled code.
There will be information in the journal and experts tabs that EA/indicator/script is reloaded.
Thanks for helping me out. This takes forever.
Journal really different from expert tab? Seen expert tab fail .
Yes, journal and experts tab have different information. Check it yourself.
What takes forever? What failed?
Sometimes I click on Compile many times, and it still does not update in the mt4 program itself and I must manually close MT4 and re open for the new compiles to take effect. This doesn't happen to you ever? Might be a wine issue
I've never had those problems on Windows. Probably wine.
