Debugging MQL5 code

 

Hey guys 

I am debugging my MQL5 source code . What does the file , function and line block indicate ? 



 
Joao David Ngululia Buta:
file , function and line block indicate

 file = the source code file name

function = the function or method you are in

line  = line number in the source code file


Also observe it shows the call stack i.e. OnTick > calls the SELL_STOP function, this can be many levels deep depending on how many functions are called

thanks . What does the 1/2 behind the variable names mean ?

It means that the number is a floating point number (double/float) and not a whole number (int, long, etc.).
