1) What is the main purpose of Webrequest Function i mean that can anyone give some brief description for this FN .
1) You can download a page from the internet and parse it (you code).
2) Sure you can load values from the internet.
Thanks for replying !! :)
But can u please give me example for the syntax for loading value of any indicator from server or any other link where it is already given.
i really appreciate your help ..
Ever consider reading the documentation? It has code examples ... https://docs.mql4.com/common/webrequest
However, you will probably also need to learn about the HTTP protocol, and maybe also HTML, XML, SOAP, JSON, REST, etc. depending on what web-service you intend to use.
Thanks for the response !!
it is a good example given for getting information from webpage as it returns strings by mql4 but i was talking about indicator.
For e.g :-
If a indicator is stored in a server and i try to use an EA which uses that indicator for calculation and placing trade so how would i call that indicator for value .
If a indicator is stored in systems MQL4 folder than we use iCustom for calling it but when it is placed in a server than what. I am a little bit confused.
If i am wrong than can u please correct me .
What do you mean by "indicator is stored in a server"? It seems you are not referring to a finacial web-service with special financial information!
Maybe you are referring to using a VPS service or to run on a Server 24/7. In that case, you just run a normal and complete MetaTrader instalation on that Server or VPS, just as you would run a local installation. It is just a PC where you connect to it remotely as if you were working locally.
Please explain in detail!
Thanks for asking me !!
I mean that if there is a robot EA which uses a specific custom indicator . I run that EA on my personal computer but that specific custom indicator is not present in my computer but it is present on a server .
So the EA can call that indicator which is present on server using webrequest.
In simple Can we call indicator values which not in our machine but on a server using webrequest.
What do you mean by "Custom Indicator" on a "Server". Please be more specific! We cannot read your mind!
What "server" is this? Do you mean a "3rd party web-service" or is it a "Linux Server doing number crunching" or is it a "Windows Server or VPS also running MetaTrader" - WHAT????
