Hey guys,

I sometimes want to see the Bill Williams Fractal indicator in my charts and I wondered if it is somehow possible to insert it by just pressing a key.

Removing it can be simply done by ChartIndicatorDelete() but I have no idea how to insert it. 

Any ideas if this is possible?

Thanks!

Will be https://www.mql5.com/en/docs/chart_operations/chartindicatoradd for MT5, but if you're using MT4, I doubt there is any way other than using template...

So I think sooner or later I have to switch to MT5...

Unfortunately, I can't use another template because I need the self-drawn objects in my charts. But ok, if it's not possible I have to drag the needed indicators into my charts manually.
