Hi ,

I am trying to Generate a mouse button click event in mql ..


  if(!EventChartCustom(0, CHARTEVENT_CUSTOM+CHARTEVENT_OBJECT_CLICK,0,0,,btnName))
   Print('Error ',GetLastError());

.. but no luck.

Would appreciate some ideas .. thanks a lot

You can NOT add two parameters, like you did with
 CHARTEVENT_CUSTOM + CHARTEVENT_OBJECT_CLICK
This is error.
They have to be separated in two EventChartCustom()

in declaracion:

string btn_close_SELLS='btn_close_SELLS';

then in Void Ontick (void)

Create_Button(btn_close_SELLS,'CLOSE SELLS',85,18,110,420,LightSlateGray,White);

copy the following code at the end of your expert

void Create_Button(string but_name,string label,int xsize,int ysize,int xdist,int ydist,int bcolor,int fcolor)
  {
   if(ObjectFind(0,but_name)<0)
     {
      if(!ObjectCreate(0,but_name,OBJ_BUTTON,0,0,0))
        {
         Print(__FUNCTION__,
               ': failed to create the button! Error code = ',GetLastError());
         return;
        }
      ObjectSetString(0,but_name,OBJPROP_TEXT,label);
      ObjectSetInteger(0,but_name,OBJPROP_XSIZE,xsize);
      ObjectSetInteger(0,but_name,OBJPROP_YSIZE,ysize);
      ObjectSetInteger(0,but_name,OBJPROP_CORNER,1);
      ObjectSetInteger(0,but_name,OBJPROP_XDISTANCE,xdist);
      ObjectSetInteger(0,but_name,OBJPROP_YDISTANCE,ydist);
      ObjectSetInteger(0,but_name,OBJPROP_BGCOLOR,bcolor);
      ObjectSetInteger(0,but_name,OBJPROP_COLOR,fcolor);
      ObjectSetInteger(0,but_name,OBJPROP_FONTSIZE,9);
      ObjectSetInteger(0,but_name,OBJPROP_HIDDEN,true);
      //ObjectSetInteger(0,but_name,OBJPROP_BORDER_COLOR,ChartGetInteger(0,CHART_COLOR_FOREGROUND));
      ObjectSetInteger(0,but_name,OBJPROP_BORDER_TYPE,BORDER_RAISED);
      ChartRedraw();
     }
  }

and this also at the end of you expert

void OnChartEvent(const int id,const long &lparam,const double &dparam,const string &sparam)
  {
   if(id==CHARTEVENT_OBJECT_CLICK)
     {
      if(sparam==btn_close_SELLS)
        {
         ObjectSetString(0,btn_close_SELLS,OBJPROP_TEXT,'Close SELLS');
         {CloseAllShorts();}
         ObjectSetInteger(0,btn_close_SELLS,OBJPROP_STATE,0);
         ObjectSetString(0,btn_close_SELLS,OBJPROP_TEXT,'Close SELLS');
         ObjectDelete(btn_close_SELLS);
        }
     }
  }

the function CloseAllShorts () you have to create youself or something else you want to do with that button



Good luck

Thanks for the sample code. I'm searching to make the button works too. Found it here

write a c based dll.

if you cant get it done by writing a c based dll, it cant be done.

if you dont have a c compiler, you could download devcpp.
