Using iCustom against an indicator with a password

daniel walker  

Hi,

I am trying to use the buy and sell indicators from a purchased indicator with a password using iCustom. I have tried using the code below in the strategy tester with the response in the journal of "Your License is invalid". Putting the license in the first spot after the name of the called indicator did not work nor leaving the license field out. Any help would be appropriate.

I tried          if(iCustom(NULL,0,"ATS",License,5,0)!=EMPTY_VALUE)

as well as      if(iCustom(NULL,0,"ATS",5,0)!=EMPTY_VALUE)
