Problems with a script which should delete a pending order

Marbo  

Hey guys,

I always get error #4756 and I have no idea why... can anyone help?

void OnStart() {
   int totalOrders=OrdersTotal();
   for (int i=totalOrders;i>=0;i--) {
      ulong ticket=OrderGetTicket(i);
      if (OrderSelect(ticket)) {
         string orderSymbol=OrderGetString(ORDER_SYMBOL);
         if ("EURCHF"==orderSymbol) {
            MqlTradeRequest   request; 
            MqlTradeResult    result;
            ZeroMemory(request);
            ZeroMemory(result);
            request.action  =TRADE_ACTION_REMOVE;
            request.position=ticket;
            if (!OrderSend(request,result)) {
               PrintFormat("OrderSend error %d",GetLastError());  // if unable to send the request, output the error code 
            }
            PrintFormat("retcode=%u  deal=%I64u  order=%I64u",result.retcode,result.deal,result.order);
         } 
      }
   }                
}

ERR_TRADE_SEND_FAILED

4756

Trade request sending failed

for( int i = totalOrders - 1; i >= 0; i-- )

I only scanned your code quickly. I did not analyse it in depth. There may be other issues.

Hello Fernando,

I modified my script a bit so I can see if the script finds the correct orders and I implemented your modification. The script finds all pending orders but it doesn't delete any of them. Always error 4756 and I don't understand this error. Additionally I receive this error in the journal: "failed cancel order #0 buy 0 at market (invalid request)".

void OnStart() {
   int totalOrders=OrdersTotal();
   for (int i=totalOrders-1;i>=0;i--) {
      ulong ticket=OrderGetTicket(i);
      if (OrderSelect(ticket)) {
         string orderSymbol=OrderGetString(ORDER_SYMBOL);
         Print(orderSymbol+" "+(string)ticket);
         MqlTradeRequest request; 
         MqlTradeResult result;
         ZeroMemory(request);
         ZeroMemory(result);
         request.action=TRADE_ACTION_REMOVE;
         request.position=ticket;
         if (!OrderSend(request,result)) {
            PrintFormat("OrderSend error %d",GetLastError());  // if unable to send the request, output the error code 
         }
         PrintFormat("retcode=%u  deal=%I64u  order=%I64u",result.retcode,result.deal,result.order);
      }
   }

  1. You are not checking the return code for OrderGetTicket() to see if it is valid.
  2. No need to select the order. It is already selected by OrderGetTicket() .
  3. Just initialise the structure as empty instead of using ZeroMemory()
  4. Set the Order ticket and not the Position ticket.
 ulong ticket = OrderGetTicket( i );
 if( ticket > 0) {
    MqlTradeRequest request = {}; 
    MqlTradeResult  result  = {};
    request.action = TRADE_ACTION_REMOVE;
    request.order  = ticket;

      Thank you so much, Fernando! Now it works perfect. The problem was that I copied this code from my SL to breakeven script and there I need to use position instead of order.
