I code in mt4 before, I want to learn MT5 code for several times but all failed.

The code below is my another try.

It will work in MT4 I am sure about it, but in MT5 it show nothing graphic.

I just want draw something on the chart.

Could any tell me what's wrong with my code.

I have already put data in the buffer array, and out put it by Print() to make sure the data is there.

But no graphic show on chart.

Please help me. This is a really simple and meaningless Indicator, I just want to know how MT5 show draw graphic.

This is very important for me.

Thanks .

English is not my native tongue. If I offend anyone, I really not mean it.

Please check this indicator

thank you very much.

ArraySetAsSeries(ExtWPRBuffer,true);

In your file this function make the Indicator worked.

Can I consider the difference between MT4 and MT5 is

MT4 set array default in time series, but MT5 is not time series by default ?
