Indicator stops firing events after period change by SetSymbolPeriod()

I open chart, add custom indicator.

Next I change period by calling SetSymbolPeriod() method.


If the change is for example from PERIOD_M1 to PERIOD_H1 and back to PERIOD_M1 there is no problem.


But if the change is for example from PERIOD_H4 to PERIOD_MN1 and back to PERIOD_H4 indicator stops firing events. Method OnChartEvent() is not called. When I by hand open from Indicator List properties for that custom indicator and only click on OK – indicator starts firing events again (method OnChartEvent() is called).


So the first solution I think would by refresh that indicator. But I don’t know how to do it from code.


Or am I missing something?

Any help will be welcome!

      if(m_view_charts[i].Open(SymbolName(0,true),v_viewOnePeriods[i])==0)
        {
         LOG(LOG_LEVEL_FATAL,"View chart not created");
         return(false);
        }
      
      if((m_hViewIndis[i]=iCustom(SymbolName(0,true),v_viewOnePeriods[i],"joeef\\JFSniffer\\JFView",m_container_chart.ChartId()))==INVALID_HANDLE)
