I purchased an 2 indicators which I use as for my strategy. 


I went to ea generator but the system can not recognise compiled indicators those with ex4 file format.


I have zero knowledge of programming.

I tried reading icustom function, I tried searching other forums but to no avail, 



I use a 2 custom indicators one puts arrows on the chart, the other opens a second window and puts arrows as well. 


I want to make an ea that goes long if an arrow is formed in both windows.


Please refer me to a good pdf/ or something that is user friendly not this jargon I have been reading.


Yes I know decompiling ex4 is illigal without owners permission. I donot wish to decompile I want the output to be the one in my ea

jeffiq: I have zero knowledge of programming.
You have only four choices: We're not going to code it for you (although it could happen if you are lucky or the problem is interesting.) We are willing to help you when you post your attempt (using SRC) and the nature of your problem.
          No free help
          urgent help.

False. Icustom can read the buffers and object functions can read the arrows if they generate them.

EA builder, EATree, fxDreema, FxPro, Online Forex Expert Advisor Generator, Quant, Visual Trader Studio, MQL5 Wizard, etc. are all the same. You will get something quick, but then you will spend a much longer time trying to get it right, than if you learned the language up front, and then just wrote it.

  • Since you haven't learned MQL4/5, therefor there is no common language for us to communicate.
    If we tell you what you need, you can't code it.
    If we give you the code, you don't know how to integrate it into yours.
    We are willing to HELP you when you post your attempt (using SRC) and the nature of your problem, but we are not going to debug your hundreds of lines of code. You are essentially going to be on your own.

  • EA builder makes bad code counting up while closing multiple orders.
    EA builder makes bad code Bars is unreliable (max bars on chart) volume is unreliable (miss ticks) Always use time. New candle - MQL4 forum
    EA builder makes bad code, not adjusting for 4/5 digit brokers, TP/SL and slippage.
    EA builder makes bad code, not adjusting for ECN brokers. (pre-Build 500)
    EA builder makes bad code, not checking return codes.
    EATree uses objects on chart to save values - not persistent storage (files or GV+Flush.) No recovery (crash/power failure.)

If you have zero knowledge of coding, then it will take you a very long time to learn sufficiently to be able to make your own EAs.

Instead consider using the Freelance services on this site, but if you really want to learn, here is the book I started with:
