I can't add tools(objects) in strategy tester visual mode. Also when using indicators which are drawing objects that can be selected and edited in live charts - can't be selected and dragged or edited in strategy tester. All these things could be done in MT4 strategy tester,this is driving me mad :(. So, did I miss something or it just can't be done?
Adding rectangle while running strategy tester in MT4.
While running MT5 strategy tester nothing can be added. Mouse clicks on chart are muted, feeling like without arms.
Also when I'm coding EA, it seems that OnChartEvent() is not working..
in this article it says that
When testing in an EA, we can handle custom events using the OnChartEvent() function, but in the indicators, this function can not be called in the tester. Even if the indicator has the OnChartEvent() event handler and this indicator is used in the tested EA, the indicator itself will not receive any custom events.
At this time, the solution is by template.you can save indicators and objects to a template file, and then you can load it on visual tester.
I believe we will soon receive new updates for that :)
Thanks! Hoping that they have though abut adding this..
