open object popup window blocks EA orders

I notice that my EA trades work fine but, auto-trading is not executed when there is an open drawing object pop-up window.

The auto-trading only executes when closing the object pop-up window.

Is this correct and, if so, is there a way to give priority to the trading signal?

I tried it with my EA and with the MT4 example EA, both give the same result. 

Thanks for helping.

What is  " an open drawing object pop-up window."?

If you mean a message box, the EA will wait for a response.

Thanks for your reply, 

I mean the window that opens for editing when drawing an object on the chart.

Any buy or sell order is not executed as long as this window is open waiting for a response.

I wouldn't have thought that they would be connected, but I can't say for sure.

Why would you leave that window open?

maybe the ea is drawing that Trendline, and the coder has not given full parameters to the ea?

I don't know about that. I would have thought that the trendline wouldn't draw in such a case. I don't think that the edit window would open.

I am transmitting orders to open and close trades with price breaking a trendline detected by my EA.

The trendline is drawn manually and sometimes I want to stay in command to activate the trendline manually with one click.

The biggest problem occurs trading during the night while accidentally, leaving the trendline editing window open.

Could you try it out? Use any EA, draw a trendline and leave the trendline editing window open. Are orders executed or not?


Thanks,

Sylvain

What do you mean by "Activate the trendline manually"?

Why do you leave the trendline properties window open? As far as i know, if you have added a valid price in the trendline properties, then the trendline will be valid, so i believe the line will be complete and an ea will open a trade if it is coded to do something when it hit that trendline. I dont see any issue there.
