MQL4 Language for Newbies. Custom Indicators (Part 2)

MQL4 Language for Newbies. Custom Indicators (Part 2)

This is the fifth article from the series "MQL4 Languages for Newbies". Today we will learn to use graphical objects - a very powerful development tool that allows to widen substantially possibilities of using indicators. Besides, they can be used in scripts and Expert Advisors. We will learn to create objects, change their parameters, check errors. Of course, I cannot describe in details all objects - there are a lot of them. But you will get all necessary knowledge to be able to study them yourself. This article also contains a step-by-step guide-example of creating a complex signal indicator. At that, many parameters will be adjustable which will make it possible to change easily the appearance of the indicator.

the remaining time of current candle to close?

most case: candle time used integer at it period unit, so get time with more precise, the remaining time is their difference.

example: now period in current graph window is 5 min, th time of current candle to close or open will only be 5 and its multiple.

so use the time not multipleof 5 min, you can get their difference.

not the candle time is server time, your computer's time maybe have some error.

attached may be of use: simple/configurable <secsUsed>/<secsInBar> indicator.

4got mention - <secsUsed> will only update when indicator gets next data tic. must be more clever stuff - maybe use Win API...

IF any make more clever THEN perhaps they post on this thread, OK?
