Fixed a bug with drawing objects for new versions of MT5 terminal
Code optimization and General improvements and bug fixes as reported by users.
- Added parameter to CLP (Closing on total profit and loss) settings:
--- CPL_CloseAllCharts_per_CloseAllDeals = close charts / other charts before closing positions.
--- This parameter allows us to solve the problem when our panel begins to close positions upon reaching the total profit or loss, and in the meantime, other experts simultaneously begin to open new positions.
--- The CPL_CloseAllCharts_per_CloseAllDeals parameter closes only those charts on which other Expert Advisors are installed (except for VirtualTradePad) only for MT5.
--- The CPL_CloseAllCharts_per_CloseAllDeals parameter closes All charts (When All Symbols is enabled) or only those with a chart symbol = VirtualTradePad symbol.
--- The CPL_CloseAllCharts_per_CloseAllDeals parameter saves chart templates before closing them! The template can be downloaded later. Template name: VTP_Symbol_Period_Name of the expert (only for MT5).
--- In Мt4: there is no way to find out the name of the Expert Advisor, so all charts are closed.
When this function is enabled, CPL_CloseAllCharts_per_CloseAllDeals = true, VirtualTradePad (before closing positions) will first save the templates of all charts, close all charts, close all positions.

Attention: This mode prohibits the use of functions: Separate Deals
- A new parameter has been added to the function “Closing by total profit or loss”:
ClosingCurrentTicketOnly - Close only the current list of tickets.
This option will help to avoid problems when my program starts to close positions on the basis of total profit, and the user's adviser starts to open new positions.
ClosingCurrentTicketOnly = true, Then the VirtualTradePad program, if the total profit conditions are met, will close the current list of positions. If new tickets are added to the list of positions, the VirtualTradePad program will ignore them.
ClosingCurrentTicketOnly = false, Then the VirtualTradePad program, if the total profit conditions are met, will close all positions, even if another adviser opens new positions.

A new parameter has been added: CPL_AUTOOFF_AfterClose allows disabling the "Close if profit or loss" button after closing all positions.
The button is only disabled when ALL! positions are closed.
It takes into account the magic number specified in the EA, as well as the symbol for closing.
If closing only 1 currency is selected and the CPL_AUTOOFF_AfterClose is enabled, the EA waits for all positions of this currency pair to be closed, and only after that the button can be closed!
BugFix: Fixed dragging of trade levels (Stop Loss, Take Profit) when hovering over the panel and back.
In the EA settings, changed the option for closing the terminal after all trades are closed.
Parameter CPL_CloseTerminalAfterClose - enable closing the terminal.
CPL_CloseTerminalAfterClose = true.
Terminal is closed only when ALL! positions are closed.
It takes into account the magic number specified in the EA, as well as the symbol for closing.
If closing only 1 currency is selected. If the CPL_CloseTerminalAfterClose parameter is enabled, the EA waits for all positions on the given currency pair to be closed, and cab close the terminal only after that!
Added the Show_Future_BE_TP_SL parameter to CLP - show the lines of the future position closure by total profit or loss..
Attention: it works only on the current symbol and with the 'SEPARATE Orders' mode disabled.
The lines are displayed separately for Buy and Sell positions, or by a common line.
If a line is not shown, then the positions form a lock that cannot be closed by the total profit or loss.
Note: line and price data may be inaccurate for floating spread.
Remember! SELL is closed by ASK, while BUY is closed by BID
Profit trailing can now be enabled only after setting the parameters for closing by profit.
Added the profit trailing values on the CLP panel near the input box for the distance of Trailing Profit. The value appears when the trailing level is fixed by the EA and shows the fixed level for closure.
Added block of alerts for profit and loss in the deposit currency.
If you want to limit the losses on the current client magic number, you can do that in the new block.
For example: you need the EA to send you emails and display on-screen alerts when the total loss of open and closed trades within LimitFor becomes less than -100 USD:
Set the parameters to the following:
After receiving the daily loss of -100 USD in history for the given magic number, the EA displays an on-screen alert and sends an email.
Attention: this block does not close trades! It simply displays alerts!
At the next LimitFor, this parameter is reset to 0.
You can select LimitFor= DAY;WEEK;MONTH;ALLTIME;
You can also enable sending email and push notifications when reaching the limits of NotificationMailSend
To the CLP panel for closing by profit or loss, added a block of notifications when closing positions by profit or loss. 3 notification methods are available:
CPL_AlerT - alert message
CPL_Mail - email message
CPL_Push - push notification
How to set up mobile device or email to messages from the Expert Advisor:
the MagicOrderToClose parameter has been replaced by 2 parameters:
MagicNumber - unique magic number of positions to close.
true = apply the function of closing by total profit or loss to all magic numbers.
false = set the unique magic number for closing positions in the MagicNumber parameter.
- Fixed the error with the display of fractional numbers on the CLP panel: when entering fractional numbers in the fields Dollars, Percents and Profit trailing
Fixed operation with long tickets
General changes and improvements:
-Depending on the account currency, added the corresponding icon.
-Improved the function for displaying the trade levels when hovering the panel.
(when hovering the panel, the trade levels of the terminal are disabled, so that the stop levels are not caught when pressing buttons).
-Fixed and improved the function for calculating commission and swap for INFO,CLP.
-Added parameter Use_Lots_in_CLP_Points for working with the CLP tab - true - the EA will also consider the lot of those positions during calculation of profit points. This option can be useful in trading on a hedging account with different lots.
opened 2 SELL positions on EURUSD
SELL 0.01 with profit of 20 and 0.2 USD
SELL 0.02 with loss of -12 points -0.24 USD
-If Use_Lots_in_CLP_Points = false the EA will calculate the "net" points.
In this case, the Profit will be: -0.04 USD or 8 points.
As we can see, the position gained profit in points, but it is a loss in USD.
-If Use_Lots_in_CLP_Points = true the EA will calculate points with consideration of lots.
In this case, the profit will be: -0.04 USD or -4 points.
If calculation of profit is in points and the "Include lots in profit calculation" is enabled,
the EA will find the minimum lot of the provided positions and calculate the Points on that basis.
Minimum position 0.01, 1 "net" point = 1 point,
If a position is opened with a lot of 0.02, then 1 net point = 2 points with consideration of the lot.
If a position is opened with a lot of 0.05, then 1 net point = 5 points with consideration of the lot.
-Added checking of the input values for closing profit or loss:
If the specified profit is lower than the current - system generates a warning and disabled the closure mode.
If the specified loss is greater than the current - system generates a warning and disabled the closure mode.
If set to 0 and user attempts to enable closure - system generates an error.
-Added the AutoCorrect_LevelCLP parameter:
Only negative values can now be entered to the loss field. If user enters +10, the system automatically converts it to -10.
Only positive values can now be entered to the profit field. If user enters -10, the system automatically converts it to +10.
Only a positive value can be entered in the CLP_TralOptions, otherwise the EA generates an error.
Now commission and swap are included into profit calculation.
The Expert Advisor is completely replaced by the CLP control panel
The 'Close if Profit or Loss' operation algorithm is completely identical
Now you have the option to use the EA as a panel on the chart
VirtualTradePad "CLP style"
The panel can work only on its own symbol (Current Symbol) or consider the total profit or loss by all symbols (All symbols).
The panel can be used as a virtual Stop Loss or Take Profit. To do it, set the profit and loss size in pips (Profit p or Loss p), put checkmarks and select your symbol. The Expert Advisor will close positions for the selected symbol considering the number of pips obtained or lost.
You can choose the close type: by profit in dollars, in pips or in % of balance or by loss in dollars, in pips or in % of balance.
There is also the "CLOSE ALL" button that instantly closes the current symbol position or all positions (depending on your choice).
The current state of your account is displayed right on the panel in three different ways corresponding to the close types.
Start the panel on your currency pair chart.
On the panel select the option to close positions by all symbols or by the current symbol.
To activate the options for selecting the close type, you need to specify a non-zero value for the corresponding parameters. Note that a positive value must be specified for the profit and a negative value must be specified for the loss, for example: -100.
Check the options you want to use for closing.
Enable the Close if Profit or Loss button, it should become blue. It means that the Expert Advisor has started working.
Once the profit or loss of your position crosses the set levels, the positions will be closed.
The emergency button CLOSE ALL is intended for closing all positions instantly.
SEPARATE Orders for separate calculation and deletion of each position.
"Virtual Stop Loss and Take Profit" mode.
For example, if you set closure by loss to $ -5 and closure by profit to 100 points, each trade will be closed separately by a loss of $ -5 or by profit of 100 points.
Separate BUYSELL, which allows to calculate a close positions by the net profit or loss separately for BUY and for SELL.
Revised the signal system for the Signals panel.
This tab shows the trend by the timeframe and indicator. Previously signal was shown at the time of its triggering. Now the current trend is shown.
Added the function to save the settings during the terminal reboot, the change in settings inside the panel, when closing the panel on the chart and attaching the panel to the chart.
All variables and data changes made in the panel are now saved when the terminal is restarted.
If you turn off the terminal and turn it on again - all the parameters will be re-loaded from the global variables.
Added the TrailingProfit function to the CLP tab:
Trailing Stop at Closing.
A new function for trailing profits has been implemented on user demand. In this case, the profit is fixed with some correction. As soon as the profit reaches the specified value, the Expert Advisor saves the current profit level and starts trailing the profit.
If you made settings for closing at the profit of 10 dollars:
Profit $ - positive closing.
Profit $ - value of positive closing.
TrailingProfit- distance from Profit $, which, when reached, triggers trailing of profit.
If Profit $ is set to 10 and TrailingProfit is set to 5 the Trailing Stop will be set at 5 dollars. The Trailing Stop will come into play when the Expert Advisor passes the 10 dollar line and start moving following the profit. The Journal will show entries about the current profit status.
When the total profit falls below the last fixed level, TrailingProfit, the Expert Advisor will perform forced closing of all position.
The function works for all closure types: Every symbol, Current symbol, Separate BUY and SELL direction, Each order separately.
Updated profit visualization during trailing.
Improved visualization on the screen!
PROFITLOSS_EXTRASETS4 - alert of profit and loss in the deposit currency.
If you want to limit losses for the current custom magic, use this new block.
Example: you want the EA to send an email and show a pop-up alert when the total loss of open and closed deals within LimitFor falls below -$100.
Use the following parameters:
When the magic's loss on history reaches -$100 per day, the EA will show a pop-up alert and send an email.
Attention: This block does not close deals! It only generates an alert!
For the next LimitFor this parameter is reset to 0.
You can set LimitFor= DAY;WEEK;MONTH;ALLTIME;
Updated algorithm of forced closure of positions and orders, if an order has been closed manually.
PROFITLOSS_EXTRASETS4 - a block for limiting profit and loss in the deposit currency.
If you want to limit losses with current settings, you can do it in the new block.
E.g.: You want to limit trade opening after the total loss for 1 day (week or month) equal to -100 USD
You will have the following parameters:
After the loss in history with the given settings reaches -100 dollars for one day, you will receive an alert prompting you either to change the parameters or delete the EA that opens trades.
The next day, this parameter is reset to 0.
You can choose LimitFor= DAY;WEEK;MONTH;ALLTIME;
Added options for closing the terminal after the closure of a series of trades
CloseTerminalAfterClosePROF - disable the terminal after fixing profit.
CloseTerminalAfterCloseLOSS - disable the terminal after fixing loss.
Improved profit trailing.
