To prevent some boilerplate code, I want to read the file name, of the file a class is executing in..
There is no default MQ4 function available, but it should be possible with a native windows function (GetModuleFileName kernel32.dll)
Source - https://msdn.microsoft.com/nl-nl/library/windows/desktop/ms683197(v=vs.85).aspx
I did read about #import the Kernel32.dll, and steal some functions from there, but it doesn't seem to work..
It gives me the following error ->
2015.01.05 00:15 Cannot find 'GetModuleFileName' in 'kernel32.dll'
It explains itself, the getModuleFileName is not in kernel32.dll
Does anyone know how to get the current file name??
Well, regarding the proper import, the information is in the link you published.
DWORD WINAPI GetModuleFileName(
_In_opt_ HMODULE hModule,
_Out_ LPTSTR lpFilename,
_In_ DWORD nSize
The proper syntax for import would be
int GetModuleFileNameW(int zero,str& lpFilename,int nSize);
This command would very likely return "terminal.exe" module.
If you expect the current script name, you should use MQLInfoString(MQL_PROGRAM_NAME)
