MetaTrader 5 Trading Terminal build 630

Trading Terminal

  1. Implemented skipping of graphical objects create by MQL5 programs when deleting objects using the Backspace key.

    Through the OBJPROP_HIDDEN property set only from MQL5 programs, graphical objects are divided into manually created and automatically created objects. By default, the list shows only the manually created objects to keep the window well organized. To see all objects, click "List All".

    Implemented skipping of graphical objects

    Now objects created by programs are not deleted by the command "Delete last (Backspace)".
    This prevents accidental removal of interface objects. They can be deleted programmatically or through the List of Objects (Ctrl + B) window.

  2. Added display of the beginning and end of symbol trading in the symbol settings dialog:

    Added display of the beginning and end of symbol trading in the symbol settings dialog

MQL5

  1. In the MQL5 language added support for operation overloading.

    Overloading of operations allows to describe operations with the meaning equivalent to those already existing in the language and apply them to the types of data created by the programmer. For example, overloading of operator "[]" allows you to implement a class with the behavior of an array. Overloading arithmetic operators allows to implement classes for working with complex numbers. In the above cases, overloading of operations allows to use of familiar syntax and avoid creation of numerous functions like ComplexPlusComplex, IntegerPlusComplex, ComplexMinusFloat, etc.

    In addition, support for operator overloading in MQL5 provides compatibility with general-purpose programming languages ​​(particularly with C++), facilitating the translation of previously written code (software libraries) into MQL5.

  2. In MQL5 added support for static fields and methods of classes and structures.

    Static fields and methods are the property of the class, so there is no need to create class instances to access its static fields. Use of static fields and methods in the language improves its flexibility and expressiveness. For example, using these methods you can easily implement control over the number of class instances (objects).

    Like with the support of operator overloading, support for operator overloading in MQL5 provides compatibility with general-purpose programming languages ​​(particularly with C++), facilitating the translation of previously written code (software libraries) into MQL5.

  3. Added a new property of the "Edit" graphical object - OBJPROP_ALIGN that denotes the alignment of text within the edit field. The property is set and read by methods ObjectSetInteger\ObjectGetInteger.
  4. Fixed the behavior of the ArrayIsDynamic function. When initializing a dynamic array with the initialization list, the ArrayIsDynamic function defined the array as static.
  5. Fixed an error in an implicit conversion of double to bool, which could lead to the error "invalid ex5".
  6. Updated the Standard Library - implemented minor bug fixes and improvements.

Strategy Tester

  1. Expanded the set of characteristics in testing results - added new features and diagrams:

    Expanded the set of characteristics in testing results

  2. Fixed loop of testing in the cases of absence of price history.
  3. Fixed refusal to modify pending orders approaching the order expiration time.

    Previously, if there were less than 5 minutes to the time of pending order deletion, an incorrect error TRADE_RETCODE_INVALID_EXPIRATION was returned at the attempt of correct order modification.

  4. Fixed generation of a negative spread when tested on open prices.
  5. Optimized transmission of testing results using the FrameAdd function.

    When you run an Expert Advisor in the strategy tester, you can create your own data array based on the simple types or simple structures. This data set can be saved using the FrameAdd() function in a special structure called a frame. During the optimization of an Expert Advisor, each agent can send a series of frames to the terminal. All the received frames are written in the file *.MQD in the folder terminal_directory/MQL5/Files/Tester expert named as the Expert Advisor. They are written in the order they are received from the agents.

    Optimize passing of frames from the tester to the client terminal and increased the speed of access to the frames received from the Expert Advisor at the entry points OnTesterPass.

  6. Fixed the context menu in the tabs of testing results.
  7. Fixed initialization of AccountInfo during optimization of strategies (the code exactly corresponds with a single test). This error could lead to the difference between the testing results and single tests with the same parameters.

MetaEditor

  1. Removed default highlighting the current line. In the previous versions, during the initial installation of MetaEditor highlighting of the current line was enabled by default.

    Removed default highlighting the current line

    Removed default highlighting the current line. In the previous versions, during the initial installation of MetaEditor highlighting of the current line was enabled by default

  2. In the MQL5 Wizard added support for the OnTester* entry points.

    In the MQL5 Wizard added support for the OnTester* entry points

    These entry points are handlers of events that are automatically generated by the strategy tester during testing (OnTester) and optimization (OnTesterInit, OnTesterPass, OnTesterDeinit) of Expert Advisors. Use of these functions in the EA allows to implement custom handling of testing and optimization results.

  3. Added snippets for the OnTester* entry points.

    For ease of writing code, MetaEditor provides the possibility to insert snippets — small template fragments of source code describing a particular construction of the MQL5 language. Insertion of a snippet is initialized by typing the keyword. After you type the keyword the cursor is changed to "Snippet available". To insert a snippet, you should press "Tab". For more information about working with snippets please read the MetaEditor Help.

    The keywords for the entry points OnTester, OnTesterInit, OnTesterPass and OnTesterDeinit are OnTester, OnTesterInit, OnTesterPass and OnTesterDeinit.

  4. Enhanced the features of MetaAssist for supporting operator overloading.

    For ease of programming, MetaEditor provides various tools from auto substitutions of names and tips to the functions to anchors and hot keys - MetaAssist. These tools allow you to speed up the process of code writing, make navigation easier and help prevent errors.

  5. Added the window displaying the differences between a source text local file and a version stored in MQL5 Storage:

    Added the window displaying the differences between a source text local file and a version stored in MQL5 Storage

    Added the window displaying the differences between a source text local file

  6. Fixed errors reported in crash logs.
    Updated documentation.

23 March 2012
MetaTrader 5 Trading Terminal build 619

Trading Terminal

  1. Added new display mode of volumes "Amount" for forex instruments in the Depth of Market. The new mode allows you to see requests in lots and in the quoted currency.

    Added new display mode of volumes Amount for forex instruments

  2. In the dialogs of properties of Bitmap and Bitmap Label, added tooltips to show long paths of image files.

MQL5

  1. Added new methods FrameAdd, FrameFirst, FrameNext and FrameInputs, allowing testing agents to pass their own custom data frames to the terminal and allowing the terminal to read them.

    With the new methods you can implement distributed computing to produce results in any convenient form, and not only in the form of one or more numeric values. By connecting to the MQL5 Cloud Network, you can solve any distributed tasks in MQL5, not necessarily, however, related to the financial markets.

  2. Added new entry points OnTesterInit, OnTesterDeinit and OnTesterPass. During the optimization of an Expert Advisor with these entry points, a chart to attach the EA to is created in the terminal. When a new data frame is received from testing agents, OnTesterPass is called, in which the received data can be read and analyzed. A detailed description is available in the documentation.

  3. Added new method ResourceCreate, which allows to create a resource of an image in the memory based on the array of the description of pixels. The created resource can be assigned to graphical objects Bitmap and Bitmap Label. A detailed description is available in the documentation.
  4. Added new properties TERMINAL_MEMORY_PHYSICAL, TERMINAL_MEMORY_TOTAL, TERMINAL_MEMORY_AVAILABLE, TERMINAL_MEMORY_USED, TERMINAL_X64, TERMINAL_OPENCL_SUPPORT, TERMINAL_DISK_SPACE, TERMINAL_CPU for TerminalInfoInteger.

    New features allow MQL5 programs to analyze the environment in which they run, and based on this make decisions about the use of various resources. These properties will be useful in complex Expert Advisors that require large amounts of resources. Now, during the optimization of such an Expert Advisor in the MQL5 Cloud Network, you can implement checks of available memory of an agent in the EA's OnInit, and in case of a potential shortage of memory not to start the testing process. Also, to make access to new properties easier, added the CTerminalInfo class. A detailed description is available in the documentation.

  5. Fixed optimizer error, which could result in incorrect calculations with floating point.
  6. Fixed the terminal crash error which occurred when using exceptions inside its own DLL in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2008.
  7. Standard Library. Added a new class CTerminalInfo for accessing the new properties of the Expert Advisor environment.
  8. Standard Library. Fixed an error of self-deletion of an indicator in the CAppDialog::CreateIndicator method.
  9. Standard Library. The BackGround method has been renamed to Background in control objects.

Strategy Tester

  1. Changed the operation of the testing method "on open prices". As before, OnTick of an Expert Advisor runs only at the opening of the bar, but instead of M1 OHLC ticks, high, low and close states the tested bar are used. Due to this, stops and pending orders may trigger at a price different from the stated one. This has led to a multiple acceleration of tests.
  2. Increased the total speed of optimization.
  3. The algorithm of checking restrictions on the aggregate positions volume now exactly matches that used on the server.
  4. Enabled checks for large values of tick volumes ​during generation. If the minute tick volume exceeds 2000, then tick simulation step increases proportionately. The accuracy of price modeling remains the same.

MetaEditor

  1. In the log of changes of the MQL5 Storage you now can revert changes to a certain revision.

    In the log of changes of the MQL5 Storage you now can revert changes to a certain revision
