How can I STOP further accidental edit to a FINAL version of Indicator, Class and EA ?

 

Dear Forum Member

I have few final versions of Indicators, Classes and EA.

How can I prevent editing them further by accident ? Something like "PROTECTING" them from further unintentional edits.

regards

From yourself or if you give it to someone else?

For someone else, simply give them only the executable ".ex5" or ".ex4".

For yourself, simple set the ".mq?" file to a "Read-Only" file in Windows (which will make MetaEditor give a warning dialog box when you try to save changes)...

... or remove "write" permissions from the file at the Windows system level all together.

Thanks Fernando

setting 'Read-Only' in Windows is simple way for my own use.
