How does one bring back the alert box for indicators on to the screen if one has closed it by mistake? If an indicator has an alert, the pop-up box appears on screen when there is an alert. One can then close that pop-up box. Yet how does one bring that back on screen without waiting for the next alert?

You don't. Click on the Experts tab and read them there.

This is an indiactor, not an expert. If I close the pop up box but then want to see it again must I wait for the next alert? Surely there must be a way to bring it back on screen again.

Hi there, add this LiveUpdate.ex4 to your scripts folder in your mt4 terminal. Refresh or restart mt4 then just go to scripts in your navigator panel and click on LiveUpdate, this will re-open the alerts panel!

You can compile this as a script and then it will show up in the script folder and if you click it the Alert Box will reappear.

Thank you very much Marco. It works.

Now, how does one delete alerts except by closing MT4 and reopening. I ask because I sometimes do not get alerts -is this because there is a limit to the number of alerts? If so, clearing the alert box regularly may help.
