Recently, the MT5's toolbox has a new item, "economic calendar".

Are there functions that could handle the "economic calendar"?

Any information will be appreciated.

There aren't.

But you can get all objects OBJ_EVENT on the chart and try to find some information from name of object and description. It might be helpful.

void OnStart()
  {
   long cid=ChartID();
   int ot=ObjectsTotal(cid,0,OBJ_EVENT);
   Print(ot," objects found.");
   for(int i=0;i<ot;i++)
     {
      string name=ObjectName(cid,i,0,OBJ_EVENT);
      Print(name,": ",ObjectGetString(cid,name,OBJPROP_TEXT));
     }
  }

Sure we can, however this is kind of "brute-force" method. Would be much more efficient to have direct access to such objects with dedicated functions.

 This is useful. However, we did need direct access ...

In fact, I asked this question about one year ago when I would like to use my related strategy in my EA. And I believe that many other users also want  to use news in their EA. Hope they could come out.
