Hello forum, good day.

I started learning MQL5 before MQL4 and I'm having a bit of trouble translating an EA to MQL4. Here is where I'm stuck:


MQL5 code: 

void OnTick()
  {
    int total = 0;
    
    for( int i = 0; i < PositionsTotal(); i++ )
      {
        if ( Symbol() == PositionGetSymbol(i) ) {
          total = 1;
          if ( NewBar() ) Trail();
        }
      }

    //...
  }

 

What I need to change is PositionsTotal() and PositionGetSymbol() because they don't exist in MQL4. I've looked at the MQL4 Docs and know that PositionsTotal() is OrdersTotal(), but I haven't found the equivalent of PositionGetSymbol(). Could someone with more experience help me please? Your help will be much appreciated.

 

Best regards and thank you in advance,

"but I haven't found the equivalent of PositionGetSymbol()"

Try OrderSymbol()

This is a basic check

 

   for(int x=OrdersTotal()-1;x>=0;x--)
     {
      if(OrderSelect(x,SELECT_BY_POS,MODE_TRADES) 
         && OrderSymbol()==Symbol()
         && OrderMagicNumber()==MagicNumber)
           {
           // Do whatever
           }
     }

If you really did look at OrderSelect - MQL4 Documentation then you would have seen it in the list

Hello, 

I ended up using the following and it worked:


for ( i = 0; i < OrdersTotal(); i++ ) {
    if ( OrderSelect(i, SELECT_BY_POS, MODE_TRADES) ) {
        if ( Symbol() == OrderSymbol() ) {
            //...
        }
    }
}

 

 

Best regards and thank you,
