I would like to have some text in my indicator window that changes color when a buy or sell signal happens. Something like "EURGBP" sitting there yellow until a buy signal happens then it turns green, or red when a sell signal happens. Even better would be a movable panel so you can put it where you like it. Can someone point me in the right direction?

I'm not sure where to look for setting up text in MQL4. I have seen some MQL5 stuff but that does not help me. I assumed it would be a buffer of some sort but I'm not seeing anything for text.

  1. See how a GUI EA like mine (for MT4): Indicators: 'Money Manager Graphic Tool' indicator by 'takycard' Forum - Page 6

  2. Buffer has a specific meaning (an automatically resizing double array.) You assumption is wrong.

I'm not sure why but when I add it to my platform nothing shows up. I have a little smiley face that says its running but I get no GUI at all.

Because you didn't bother to read the first page on how it works. Mouse to an entry level and press B or S
