Hello,  

Expert can't be removed from chart from MQL code.

 

 Why is it often so painful talking to these people ? ....  ExpertRemove description ...

 "The function stops an Expert Advisor and unloads it from a chart."

Oh dear! Then I guess something else must be removing the Expert in my code...

MQL4 documentation is shocking

That index is indeed very handy, and thanks for your efforts here, though I think the onus is on MQ to provide complete documentation. ExpertRemove should IMO get a mention in the Program Running page which has the following section:

 

Expert Advisors are unloaded in the following cases:

  • when detaching an Expert Advisor from a chart;
  • if a new Expert Advisor is attached to a chart, if another Expert Advisor has been attached already, this Expert Advisor is unloaded.
  • terminal shutdown (if the Expert Advisor was attached to a chart);
  • loading of a template, if an Expert Advisor is attached to the chart;
  • close of a chart, to which the Expert Advisor is attached.
  • change of a profile, if the Expert Advisor is attached to one of charts of the changed profile;
  • change of the account to which the terminal is connected (if the Expert Advisor was attached to the chart before the authorization of the terminal on the server.
