How to auto-indent a whole code quickly?

 

For example, whenever I copy/paste code from a webpage or ebook it looks like:

 

 




if(SellTakeProfit > 0) SellTakeProfit = AdjustBelowStopLevel(Symbol(),

SellTakeProfit,5);

AddStopProfit(SellTicket,SellStopLoss,SellTakeProfit);

}

}

} // End trade block

// Adjust trailing stops

if(BuyMarketCount(Symbol(),MagicNumber) > 0 && TrailingStop > 0) //note: if extern TrailingStop = 0, then trailingstop is disabled

{

BuyTrailingStop(Symbol(),TrailingStop,Profit,MagicNumber);

}

if(SellMarketCount(Symbol(),MagicNumber) > 0 && TrailingStop > 0)

{

SellTrailingStop(Symbol(),TrailingStop,MinimumProfit,MagicNumber);

}

return(0);

mql5.com "Pocket" feature is not related to getpocket.com, though the feature is similar.

Oops! I thought it was! I have corrected my post!

Then, how does one use it exactly! Is it explained somewhere? Never mind, I figured it out!

what is "to pocket"?

Alain Verleyen, 2013.03.31 16:27

To Pocket is not only available in forum. These links also exists for Market and Signals. If you click on the link, content is memorized and you can use it in your posts.

thank you. So to pocket has 2 functions:

- replying to a specific person in a thread

- copy message to clipboard

 

I understand the first function: replying to a commenter. But the second function I don't understand: copying to clipboard. I doesn't seem to work. How does it work?

Its not your PC Clipboard, but your site profile's clipboard which you paste using the "Pocket" icon which Alian showed you in his post (the one highlighted in yellow) and I quote:
