i have some bug in my indicator so i'm debugging but i have some question.

following is parts of code .

when debugging step through i want to see result on the chart immediately.

but when this code executed OBJ_TEXT not updated on the chart immediately.

i inputed Sleep function for check whether it can make update TEXT object on the chart but also it couldn't updated.

are there any possible way to update chart immediately?


   ObjectCreate(objprefix+" "+text[s]+" ("+bar+")", OBJ_TEXT, 0, Time[bar],High[bar]+ UPhilo* x);
   ObjectSetText(objprefix+" "+text[s]+" ("+bar+")","UT", 8, "Arial", DeepSkyBlue);
   ObjectSet(objprefix+" "+text[s]+" ("+bar+")", OBJPROP_COLOR, icolor);

The debugger doesn't work with indicators! Either use an EA or a script!!

1) To my experience the debugger doesn't really work for indicators - but I can't remember what was the problem, I just don't do it any more.

2) You can debug with the candles of the chart but not with the historic data of the Strategy Tester (Mt4 has started to think about enabling this - but they are still thinking).

now debugger support debugging indicator as far as i know. but sometimes have bug .

are there any command exist to  give time to EA or indicator to update object create time on the chart?

if i can see debugging result on the chart real time it would be great.
