Hi,

In MT4 a Profile is a collection of charts projected as 1 window.

one can add or remove additional symbols manually

is there a way to populate a Profile automatically ? and reflect all symbols with open orders.

so we are looking for functions/script to add/remove a symbol from the Profile.


Thanks in advance

Yes try

SymbolSelect

Selects a symbol in the Market Watch window or removes a symbol from the window.

bool  SymbolSelect(
   string  name,       // symbol name
   bool    select      // add or remove
   );

Parameters

name

[in] Symbol name.

select

[in] Switch. If the value is false, a symbol should be removed from MarketWatch, otherwise a symbol should be selected in this window. A symbol can't be removed if the symbol chart is open, or there are open positions for this symbol.

Return Value

In case of failure returns false.

Thank You Marco,

Though the question was not about add/remove from MarketWatch, but about the Profile (see Ctrl F5). Sorry is it was not clear.

Browsing the manual the attention went now to ChartOperation, and I brewed as below.

Now I can add (remove not tested yet) and tile/cascade the symbols, and also apply an existing template.

But then back to the question... can this now we saved/retrieved to/from a Profile ?

The final purpuse is to dynamically populate a Profile with all Symbols with open orders.

Cheers,

T

Hi,

We can read it better ʘ‿ʘ  if you use SRC

Thank You Yohana.

Was my first post, and will do.

This script now works and all open orders are selected and displayed as a chart. Only now need to add an interval for automatic refresh.

I assume there are no functions in mq4 to work with a "Profile".

Cheers,

Is there any command I can use to make uniform size of sub-windows? I want to  attach 8 sub-windows of equal length to single main chart.

oye,

i noticed that indeed the Tile not always results in equally distributed Charts. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. it is a Windows API that is used.

Why 8 ? We work with a robot, and this mq4 has to reflect any/all open orders.

Also noticed that there may be multiple charts for the same Symbol... reason is that we have multiple Strategies that may generate the same Symbol. That we have to work out too.
