Creating Libraries

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

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

Creation of Library

The following fields should be filled out in this window:

  • Name — the name of the library, the same name will be given to its file;
  • 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 library will be created and the window for writing its source code will be opened automatically.
