Strategy Tester is not working properly

 

I have some problems with Strategy Tester.

+ The UI is frozen and doesn't refresh

+ Journal log does not update while running.

+ Pause / Play button is disabled after a few presses and releases

Windows version:

Edition Windows 11 Pro

Version 22H2

Installed on ‎2/‎2/‎2023

OS build 22621.1485

Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22639.1000.0


 

Try to backtest another EA, like MACD_Sample already included into the platform.

I'm almost sure the problem is not the tester but the EA you are testing that is in loop due to bad code...

I tried isolating each part of the source code and to my surprise, the problem was caused by the Comment function.

   double max = SymbolInfoDouble(_Symbol, SYMBOL_VOLUME_MAX);
   Comment("Name: ", account.Name(), "\n",
           "Server: ", account.Server(), "\n",
           "Company: ", account.Company(), "\n",
           "Balance: ", account.Balance(), "\n",
           "Equity: ", account.Equity(), "\n",
           "Profit: ", account.Profit(), "\n",
           "Leverage: 1:", account.Leverage(), "\n",
           "Max Volume: ", max, "\n",
           "Point Value: ", _Point, "\n"
          );
