The way it works:
To arrange the dashboard to work along with your indicator, the compiled(.ex4) file of it should be within the “Indicators” folder of MetaTrader. If the file is in “.mq4” format, you should compile it first then put the compiled(ex4) file into the “Indicators” folder.
For those who bought or downloaded the indicator from the Market part of the mql5 web site, it is already within the “Indicators” folder within the “Market” subfolder, prepared to make use of.
Then we enter the filename and settings of the indicator into dashboard settings and introduce the indicator strains as “Important line” and “2nd line” then the dashboard screens the values of those 2 strains (or 1 line) relative to cost or relative to one another or relative to a set worth and provides alerts.
Indicator Filename: Kind the “filename” of your indicator right here. If the indicator is within the “Market” subfolder of the Metatrader “Indicators” folder you should kind the subfolder identify adopted by “” earlier than the filename. For instance “MarketBollingerBands” (with out citation mark)
Indicator enter settings: Kind the settings of your indicator reminiscent of interval, utilized worth, methodology, and many others on this subject so as of their place within the indicator settings window, separated with underline(underscore) “_” image.
You’ll be able to go away Indicator Enter Setting subject clean then the default settings of the indicator will apply to the dashboard. (You’ll be able to edit the default settings of the indicator within the .mq4 file earlier than compiling.)
If there are various enter settings within the indicator simply kind the primary 5 to 7 fields and that is okay.
Kind all of the customized indicator settings in numbers together with dropdown enum kind settings.
Exception for MT5 model: in MT5 “utilized worth” dropdown enum setting begins at 1 in numbers.
Important Line & 2nd Line Buffers: Enter line buffers so the dashboard is aware of the place to get every indicator worth. (Suppose line buffers as identifiers for every indicator line)
If the indicator has just one or 2 strains (like Transferring common or Stochastic) go away the default values (0,1) as they’re.
If it has greater than 2 strains (like Bollinger Bands that has 3) and also you wish to select 2 of them to be monitored by the dashboard (higher & decrease bands) there are numerous methods to know every line buffer quantity. A easy means is to connect that indicator to a brand new chart and verify the “Knowledge Window” of the Metatrader (Ctrl+D).

If “Bar Shut > 2nd Line AND 2nd Line > Important Line” for an up sign.
Timeframes to scan (MT4 model): You’ll be able to kind the identify of timeframes (as proven within the MT4 toolbar) you wish to monitor separated with underline(underscore) “_” image.
