I've got a bunch of indis I wrote, not recompiled since my MT4 auto updated to 890, all working fine. I needed to make some minor changes today, and recompiled against 890, and suddenly strange things are happening. For one, an ArrayResize statement in a section of code is now completely failing to...

Hi, I've developed Corona Charts by J.Ehlers for MT4. You can find their description here. Regards, Igor
(Please, some patience because I just started in MQL.) On the chart I put an OBJ_BITMAP_LABEL, which has two states: on and off. When I click the image changes (img1 in img2 or img2 in img1), and so on. But the key-thing for me is: how to launch a script when I click? I searched the internet but I...
