Hello,  I found a program that will allow me to detach charts and move to a separate monitor in MT4 but can not find any way to do that in MT5.  Is there an option for that out there that anyone knows of?

I wrote a script that can do something like that, but it's horrible for everyday use.

Hello! This is the beginning of the code: Terminal says "cannot find 'CreateWindowsEx' in 'user32.dll'...

Floating windows in the next release of MetaTrader 5

Renat Fatkhullin , 2018.07.26 21:47

We have implemented floating windows that can be placed on other monitors and outside the main window:


For convenience, each window can include its toolbar.

From MQL5 it is easy to manage the state of the window and even make completely independent windows with their own controls and panels. It's enough to turn off the display of the chart and all the canvas is at the developer's disposal.

This will give an additional push to create full-fledged applications within the terminal.

I'm so glad Service Desk lied to me two months ago. This is one of MT5 features I would enjoy the most.


MetaTrader 5 Platform: suggestion

Hello!

Have you considered an option to undock charts' windows from terminal's window? Either like Toolbox, Market Watch, Symbols etc. or completely independent windows?

The main advantages would be pretty frames and titlebars, free placement over multiple monitors and a possibility to place chart of one terminal instance over another terminal or other software (with 'always on top' option, either built in or using external program).

Main disadvantage would probably be complicated (or impossible) cascade and tiling, so independent chart windows should definitely not be the only or even default option.

There also might be a performance improvement for Linux installs as that would enable GPU accelerated window managers to build the chart windows.

Dear  User.

Thank you for contacting us and suggestion.

Unfortunately, we do not have plans to implement it. Probably, we will return to them.



Let's hope they lied for not having plans to implement 15-seconds charts as well.
