In MetaEditor on EA source I start debugger via F5
In ClientTerminal a new chart is displayed.
I need .tpl of my choice...
Same idea as when use StrategyTester, I name the .tpl of choice with the .ex4's <fname>.tpl
I've done the renaming in all dirs having .tpl's but no joy.
I've searched total install tree for eg: "symbol=EURUSD" which would appear in the .tpl that ClientTerminal decided to use and no .tpl of any meaning to me has something that ClientTerminal would decide to use. I happens same .tpl each time too.
Any ideas how to use .tpl of my choice when debugging???
Thanks for reply but.....
I created debug.tpl in templates from GBPUSD,M15 - totally clean chart. Beginning of debug.tpl is:
Makes no difference, I had already tried this [just forgot to mention..]
So, I delete debug.tpl and get up the clean chart and 'save as' debug.tpl
I switch to ME and do F5 with a BP in place to suspend code..
Then, switch back to Terminal and USDCHF,H1 now showing/created - obviously when I hit F5.
If I re-enter ME and do shift-F5 the debug session stops and USDCHF,H1 removed.
debug.tpl still has above beginning - so not moded.
The symbol and the time frame for debugging has to be set in the editor: Menu => Tools => Options => Debug.
The debug.tpl loads only the indicators and their setting you would like to see.
The missing link. Thanks :)
Understand why picking up usdchf,h1 now. It was "..first symbol in the Market Watch window..".
Ref: "MetaEditor / MetaEditor Options / Debugging" "If no symbol or chart period is specified in this tab, then the first symbol in the Market Watch window and period H1 will be used for debugging/profiling on default."
Regards debug.tpl, got that now too. I put whatever chart content wanted such as special indicators, objects etc. via making copy of wanted .tpl and naming/save template as debug.tpl
Above combo of "Menu => Tools => Options => Debug" + debug.tpl has sorted me out.
Many thanks to all. Been a long time since I've posted.
MT4 lives on ;)
