I know I have to use ObjectCreate, but I don't fully understand how to use it. I would really appreciate it if someone could post...

I'm trying to develop an expert that looks back within 100 bars and gives me the max point of a custom indicator (BW below). If I was making an Indicator instead of an Expert, I think I would accomplish this using an Array - but how would I do it in an Expert? see the *** below for where I need...
Looking at the Report tab of the strategy tester there is this data of 'Bars in test'. One would think this is the number of bars actually tested by the tester, only no matter what dates I use in the Settings tab I get the same number of bars (and the same number of 'ticks modelled'). Why doesn't...
I'm having bad problems with the editor since the last update. Will there be a fix soon?
MetaEditor is doing some crazy stuff. Copy and paste inserts strange characters. And eventually the editor just crashes. The "Send" button seems to just lock up, so I'm pasting the crash log here. There has been a critical error Time : 2005.08.24 19:42 Program : MetaEditor Version...

1) Metaeditor crashes when copy or cut/past is used 2) Metatrader 181 is not placing trades, instead I either get the message '146635 login(4.00, #27F6EDCB) or it is removing the EA's for whatever reason These EA's have not been modified since the update, and have only had the problem since the...

Please see next question:
I'm also involved in an Amibroker to interface to Metatrader project. Someone in that group had this to say in an email today :- 'As for MT4, the pres of the company has said that there will be an API "in a few months." Until an API is available there will be no way to build a plug-in for MT4.' Now...
With the build in print (from menu) I can print the chart that I can see at the moment on screen. Currently, I print the first sheet with the newest view, press 'page up' for the last view, print next sheet and so on, to get all views from the timeframe. Is there any way to print the whole chart...
"Closed P/L" and "Floating P/L" are showing -1.#Q on my reports tonight. Any reason why? Ref. http://www.quantinetics.com/forex/DetailedStatement.htm - Vooch
When backtesting a script under MT4 v.180 the log file under \Metatrader 4\tester grows huge to the point where it was 30 GB and I was running out of hard disk space. How does one disable the logging of the file to the hard disk while doing the backtest? I believe now it writes everything that it...
Does anybody have the code, or how to add a PIP filter to MT-4. For example when sma crosses wma wait 5 pips before opening trade. Thanks Mike
Why does not MQL4 allows to initialize the array from a variable? int a=6; double array[a]; Why is it numerical only? double array[6]; I would like to initialise array from "Bars" double array[Bars]; -Stan
If an expert is in the middle of processing and has locked the semaphore, and the user closes the chart window or changes the time frame or does anything else that causes the expert to deinit, won't the semaphore remain locked? That would prevent any expert from processing. You can't exactly reset...
Any chance that this indicator can be added? Another nice one to have would be the BW MFI. Thanks, Josh
I have a quick question about all of this. I was thinking earlier and is this basically babysitting an account? What I mean is that since we don't have direct contact with the script and code etc then this is basically like a custodial account except its not a minor trading but a robot. Please tell...
Hello every one, my compliments to the Programmers and supporting staff of the MT4 application, wow! Where can I locate the program code for the Bollinger Band indicator other than at c:\Program Files\MetaTrader 4\experts\Samples\indicators\Bands.mq4 Thanks in advance
Why the Stop Loss and Take Profit are set to zero? Then you manually have to fill this windows if you want an automatic stop and limit when you buy or sell with Instant Execution. Why not have a possiblity in Options how long from Market Price the Stop and Limit prices are automatically. A co called...
Does anyone have a monthly pivot indicator for MT 4 that they can share? Many thanks.
I thought chart templates were suppose to be useful in remembering layout, color, indicator, expert settings, etc. for use on any currency. However, when applying a template to another currency, it applies the saved Point and Digits settings too. So, why are these settings being saved in a...
