Working on class to send trade information from a MT5 EA to an MT4(Latest) EA using named pipes.
I am using the tick server example as a guidance. So I am planning to use a struct like this to send the info:
To use this I need to supply the length of the struct. How do I calculate that?
Please use the SRC button when you post code. Thank you.
Can you edit your message please.
Thank you for editing.
The solution is here ...
That is simple :-)
Since one of the variables is string and the size is calculated at compilation time it seems proper to prime the string
with a symbol name before getting the length by "sizeof"
