Hi everyone,


Excuse my questions but I am new to the MQL languages.

I am trying to make an EA that will use the highs and lows of the ZigZag indicator(attached).

My questions:

1)How can I include this indi to my EA?

2)How can I store the values of highs and lows from ZigZag to an array?


Thanks,


Stergio

Hi Vladimir,

Thanks for the reply!

Although the link was in Russian I did manage to find the iCustom() function which is probably what I must use.

Now, that I have the handle of ZigZag how do I use CopyBuffer() to store the values to an array?

This is the code I am using but it is not working

   //--- Create ZigZag array
   double ZigZag[];
   
   //--- Define indi
   int ZigZagHandle = iCustom(_Symbol,_Period,"Examples\\ZigZag",12,5,3);
   
    //---Copy values to array  
   CopyBuffer(ZigZagHandle,0,0,10,ZigZag);

Again excuse my stupid question but I have spend hours on that simple thing and I am desperate!

Thanks,

Stergio

You make the same grossest mistake: you do not read the documentation and do not want to learn! ICustom Help.

Please note - the handle is created ONCE! ONCE IN OnInit ()!
