Hello!

I have an own indicator, and I want to use in EA the indicator's two buffers. The problem is the second buffer result is always 0. What did i do wrong?

Perhaps you should read the manual, especially the examples.

They all (including iCustom) return a handle (an int). You get that in OnInit. In OnTick/OnCalculate (after the indicator has updated its buffers), you use the handle, shift and count to get the data.

Thanks for the nothing!

 
You asked:
Zsolt Szabo: What did i do wrong?

I answered that.

That is not nothing. Live in ignorance. On my Do Not Help List.
