MetaTrader 5 Client Terminal build 286

What's new in MetaTrader 5

18 June 2010

  1. Terminal: Optimized the drawing of a large number of graphic objects.
  2. Terminal: Fixed the settings of the graphic object Chart.
  3. Terminal: Fixed the settings of selecting the time periods of displaying the graphic objects.
  4. Terminal: Fixed the error in the clearing of user data during the deletion of an account in the Navigator window.
  5. Terminal: Added the defragmentation of history databases files.
  6. Terminal: Added the binding of the objects’ anchor points, to the extremum during its magneting. During the magneting of the trend line to the maximum or minimum of the bar, the date of the binding point is indicated by the time of the minute bar, which corresponds to the maximal (minimal) value. This way, the trend is preserved when switched from a larger to a smaller timeframe.
  7. Terminal: When inputting your personal data into the 'Opening Account' window, the postal code (ZIP) field is made optional.
  8. Terminal: Fixed the errors in the ordering of charts through the commands: Cascade, Tile Horizontally, and Tile Vertically.
  9. Terminal: Fixed an error in the display of the context menu of trading history.
  10. MQL5: Added the SERIES_LASTBAR_DATE property of historical data: it indicates the opening time of the last bar of the specified symbol and period.
  11. MQL5: Added the OBJ_NO_PERIODS constant of graphic objects visibility: it indicates that the graphic object should be hidden at all periods. The constant OBJ_ALL_PERIODS now has the value of 0xffffffff (-1).
