Built-In MQL4/MQL5 Help

MetaEditor has the built in reference book about the MetaQuotes Language 4 and 5 (MQL4 and MQL5) that contains the full description of all its elements and constructions.

  • Built-in Context Help
    In order to use the context help one should put the mouse cursor within the necessary element in the window of the source code editing and press the "F1" key. As soon as it is done, the help section that contains the description of that element will be opened.
    The built in help can also be opened using the "MQL4 Reference" and "MQL5 Reference" commands in the "Help" menu.
  • Search in MQL4.community/MQL5.community
    In addition to the built-in help, MetaEditor provides the feature of context search in MQL4.community/MQL5.community. To use it, select a necessary word or phrase in the window of source code editing and press the "Ctrl+F1" key combination. The result will be displayed in the "Search" tab of the "Toolbox" window.
    You can also search in MQL4.community/MQL5.community using the "Search" toolbar.
