Hello to all. Before the release of new MT4 build 600, I was able to import some system function (kernel32.dll) to read/write file out of sandbox, using WinFiles.mhq library found in this community. With new build I had to update the library to use unicode version of this function library,...

Hi guys. Im not a programer but i managed to do this script from several other scripts, so excuse me if something looks weird or nonesense. I thought I had finally nailed to program a quick and helpful script for a hedging strategy. Although its not very trustworthy. When i go ahead and drag it...

Hi, I created a sample EA but it keeps getting the error "... is not expert and cannot be executed.". Any thoughts? Thanks, Young
RaptorUK told me to not double-post. I understand, but wanted to make a separate thread since I see this as something particularly easy for MetaQuotes to fix if they so desired, and an important subject that IMHO affects sessions, news, pivots, etc., so my original posts can be seen here: https...

Hi, If you're here, you may need help using OrderSelect() in your EA, right? Add this custom function to your EA and when called upon, it will return the count of that EA's orders. As you know, OrdersTotal() will return the total numbers of orders not just the ones place by a particular ea. So,...
