In MT4.

Tools>options>server

Tick box to enable DDE server.


In MT5.

This is not there. Any suggestions? Am I missing something?

I need the option to enable DDE server to link a program to it.


Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

John.

They dropped DDE support in MT5. This could be done via a DLL though...

DLL under the EA tab. Got it. Thanks.

Why would they drop DDE? SO useful.

K. That isn't working.


Anyone know who I have to ask to get this DDE included again? MT5 will be totally useless to me without it.

You misunderstood... I meant u can write a DLL that implements a DDE server and call it from your experts (u can even write a DDE client). But it DOES NOT come built-in with MT5.

How to Export Quotes from МetaTrader 5 to .NET Applications Using WCF Services

Want to organize export of quotes from MetaTrader 5 to your own application? The MQL5-DLL junction allows to create such solutions! This article will show you one of the ways to export quotes from MetaTrader 5 to applications written in .NET. For me it was more interesting, rational and easy to implement export of quotes using this very platform. Unfortunately, version 5 still does not support .NET, so like in old days we will use win32 dll with .NET support as an interlayer.
