Creating Include Files

Creating Include Files

An include file template is a file designed for writing a source code. After it has been created, it is automatically placed in an MQL5/Include (or MQL4/Include) directory.

After choosing the corresponding position in the MQL4/MQL5 Wizard and pressing the "Next" button the following window appears:

Creation of Include File

The following fields should be filled out in this window:

  • Name — the name of the include file, the same name will be given to the file itself;
  • Author — the name of the author;
  • Link — the e-mail or website address of the developer.

Once all the necessary fields are filled out, the "Done" button will become active. As soon as it is pressed, the project of the include file will be created and the window for writing its source code will be opened automatically.
