Hello my friends,

Ive got a little problem with a part of my ea. 

 

if (a=0) {OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_BUY,Lots,Ask,3,Ask-(StopLoss*Point),Bid+(TakeProfit*Point),NULL,Blue); printf ("buy");}

if (a=1) {OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_SELL,Lots,Bid,3,Ask+(StopLoss*Point),Bid-(TakeProfit*Point),NULL,Red); printf ("sell");}

 

return value of 'OrderSend' should be checked

return value of 'OrderSend' should be checked

 

I tried nearly everything for a couple of hours and need help now.

And yes, ive already usd google and the search funcktion on this side. I guess im just blind for my own mistakes.

Please help me. Thanks in advance!

OrderSend()

Returned value:

Returns number of the ticket assigned to the order by the trade server or -1 if it fails. To get additional error information, one has to call the GetLastError() function.

if (a=0) {ticket=OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_BUY,Lots,Ask,3,Ask-(StopLoss*Point),Bid+(TakeProfit*Point),NULL,Blue); printf ("buy");}

if (a=1) {ticket=OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_SELL,Lots,Bid,3,Ask+(StopLoss*Point),Bid-(TakeProfit*Point),NULL,Red); printf ("sell");}

it will solve the warning, but you should still check the value:

if(ticket<0)
  {
   // OrderSend error.
   Print("OrderSend failed with error #",GetLastError()); 
  }

No problem but it's warning, so no error, error would not compile at all.

Good luck on your project.
