There are many ways how to do it, best is to post your code. Or here is one example.

double  Ticks = 0.00100; // 100 Ticks (on 5 digits symbol)
double  Bid;

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

void OnTick()
  {
   MqlTick last_tick; SymbolInfoTick(Symbol(), last_tick);
   Bid = last_tick.bid;

   if (Starter == 0) {Starter = Bid;}
        if (Bid == Starter+Ticks) {Starter = 0; Print("Price travel 100 ticks");}  
  }

  1. if (Bid == Starter+Ticks) {Starter = 0; Print("Price travel 100 ticks");}  

    Doubles are rarely equal. Understand the links in:
              The == operand. - MQL4 programming forum #2 (2013)

    Ticks do not change only by point.

    What about the downward direction?

    if( MathAbs(Bid - Starter) >= Ticks){ Starter=0; …
  2. Because you don't immediately set Starter to Bid, your alerts will slowly drift.

Bahijulien:

My project is to create an EA capable of sending me alerts every 100 ticks.

But the one I created now only sends me alerts once.

I tried to insert my code in a loop but it doesn't work.

  1. Bahijulien #: this is my code source
      CopyTicks(_Symbol,tick,COPY_TICKS_ALL,0,500);
       ArraySetAsSeries(tick,true);
       int copiedTick= CopyTicks(_Symbol,tick,COPY_TICKS_ALL,0,100);

    Why are you copying twice?

  2. Bahijulien: But the one I created now only sends me alerts once.
      if(PositionsTotal()==0&&TickNumber==copiedTick)
          {
          Alert("100 TICKS");
          MessageBox("100 TICKSr",NULL,0);
          };
    

    On the next tick your variable is 101. It will never go down. Instead, count the ticks.

    input int TickNumber=100;
    int count=0;
    void OnTick()
      {
          if(++count % TickNumber != 0) return;
          Alert("100 TICKS");
          MessageBox("100 TICKSr",NULL,0);
