Hello to everybody;
I am new in MQL5, even if I have a good experience as computer programmer and engineer....
I have downloaded the script below this page (https://www.mql5.com/en/articles/322) and compiled it just for a test.... I have noticed that the result is a .ex5 file, but when I click on it, the MetaTrader window opens but nothing else happens.
I really have any idea to run this example and see the result.
Pls. help me.
Are you talking about 3 files inside zip archive below this page?https://www.mql5.com/en/articles/322
- unzip this file custom_graphic_controls_3_en.zip
- open MT5; in MT5: Files - Open Data Folder ... and find MQL5/Include directory and MQL5/Experts directory
- place those files according to the following:
Thus, you should place two files to the following directories:
The elnGUI_v3_Test_Form..mql5 is the source file, and instead the elnGUI_v3_Test_Form.ex5, which I succesfully built from the corresponding source compilation, is the excutable; am I right ?
Now, how can I run the executable ?
Because I clicked on it; but only MT5 opens, without anything else happens.
Did you place IncGUI_v3.mqh file to MQL5/Include folder?And - did you place elnGUI_v3_Test_Form.mql5 file to MQL5/Experts as I described above?
if yes, so
In MetaTrader -
I do not know what should be happened in case you attach it (because I am not a coder sorry) ... but I explained the general procedure about how to install it.
I got the chart like this one -
I have explored MT5 and I discovered there is a side in which there is a script called elnGUI_v3_Test_Form..... probably it was added when I clicked on the elnGUI_v3_Test_Form.ex5 file....
Then I opened a chart and I clicked to the option 'Add to chart'.
Is it the correct procedure ?
Anyway my goal is to write a script which read PIP hystorical datas from a .CSV file and then show them in a graph.
Is it possible to do it ?
Hello Kypa... what exactly are you meaning ?
I really do not understand.
In MetaTrader Help/Help Topics would answer most of your questions for the next two months about MetaTrader.
On top of this page or in MT Help/MQL5 Documentation is where the documentation about the language is, which is C++ plus specific built-in functions. It's pretty well written, unlike, for example, Microsoft's.
Thanks for your help and sorry if I am disturbing you once again.... I have just read more carefully the article here (https://www.mql5.com/en/articles/322) and better studied the code enclosed.
I noticed that some controls, like CLabel and CButton are not mentioned there; so I am asking you in which article I can found an exaustieve dissertation about all the graphical controls avalaible.
There should be zip files attached at the bottom of the articles, there is the code.
This article is part 3, the other parts probably have it.
