Hi

I'm new in MQL4 programming...

I want to view "current time" in debug mode of MQL4 programming EA ...... is this possible?

Maybe with object OBJ_VLINE? I'm try with:

datetime LineTime=iTime(Symbol(), Period(),0);
ObjectCreate(current_chart_id,obj_name,OBJ_VLINE,0,LineTime,0)

but not see nothing....

Can anybudy help me?

Thanks for helping me ... but I think I have problem on starting Debug on History data (Ctrl-F5) .... I have enabled only "start debug on real data" (F5)

On MT4 terminal I'm logged to Demo account
