This also means that you will never get an alert for such an arrow if you set TriggerCandle to 1. I can get the alert to sound in my own chosen wav file, can you look through it? April 5th, at 6: Please do not submit such huge pieces of code in comments. Either upload your indicator somewhere and share a link or use pastebin. For PlaySound to work with your custom. Would you mind to help me with it? May 20th, at 5: May 20th, at 1: I did not want to be disrespectful, I do not know anyone who program mql5, the way you explained with this post just thought that at a quick glance you could see what is wrong in the code that does not work the alert and give me a tip How to fix it!
Forgive me if I was pretentious, here was the only place I found some good material for this problem!!! May 20th, at 6: You can start a thread about it in our forum about MetaTrader indicators — perhaps, someone will be able to help you out there. May 20th, at 7: Thanks for taking the time and patience to write this out.
Thanks for the post, unfortunately I think I may have made an erro, as I cannot seem to get the script to work. I have pasted it at and would love if you could let me know where I have gone wrong. Apologies for the most likely silly error!
June 26th, at 2: It will not work if arrays are not set as series. If you want to use such arrays, then you have to modify the alert conditions accordingly. Hey buddy, Great article. I would like to attach a file with this message. How do I do that? July 6th, at 8: July 26th, at 5: You should be placing your alert conditions after this line:.
July 26th, at 7: July 27th, at 2: If you share your code via pastebin. July 27th, at Hope you can help. July 28th, at 5: Sorry, I have been trying to embed the code from pastebin. I copied the code from metaeditor, pasted into pastebin, copied the embed code, pasted it here but nothing is happening. July 27th, at 5: Just copy and paste the link to the pastebin share you created.
I copied the section of code in the tutorial and added the conditions to the force index indicator. July 28th, at 9: You need to follow the steps 2 and 3 of the tutorial. I have already replied to you with the buffer name you need to check, so you can skip step 2. Copying example code into a different indicator will not work. Thank you very much for your great post. August 18th, at 6: Hi Andriy, i have added successfully email and sound alert into indicator, but why it is not attached on chart.
August 27th, at 5: I am not going to discuss decompiled code here. As for your question, check if there are any compilation errors in MetaEditor when you compile it.
It looks like it did not compile. If it does compile without errors, check the Expert tab output in the platform when you try to attach the indicator to the chart. Dear Andriy Moraru, Appreciations for this great post.
Everything works well except it gives alert on each new candle. Could you please guide me to correct the issue. September 21st, at But you should have used the Level type of alert from the post instead of Signal.
Try changing the alert conditions so that they are similar to those in the Level alert example in my post. September 22nd, at 4: Dear Andriy Moraru, Thanks for your kind reply. I used only the first example CCI arrow signal alert code.
Please see in the line no: In the CCI arrow example there is only one signal for trend change. But in my indicator signal dots displays on every candle and only changes color when trend change. September 22nd, at Dear Andriy, oops, i misunderstood. Now i am clear on that point now, but still have doubts in logic. Coppock has separate window indicator and had used zero cross.
Here, step ma is on-chart indicator and have no cross value except price. In the code there are only two buffers blue and red dots and not crossing anything. If you have spare time please clarify. It will be very useful for all on-chart color change trend indicators like HMA, Non-lag ma etc.
Just make sure that your alert condition checks that the current value is above zero it already does that in your pastebin AND that the previous value was below zero. Dear Andriy, Thank you very much.
I successfully added alert. I think this page is very precious for non-programmers. September 25th, at 9: October 13th, at 2: Also, the second indicator is clearly a decompiled source code, which is against the MetaQuotes EULA, — I will not discuss adding alerts to the decompiled indicator. December 1st, at 9: Have you tried following the tutorial provided in this post? Also linking to your indicator via Pastebin for example would be helpful.
December 1st, at 4: December 5th, at First, please do not post such big pieces of code as comments. Publish them via pastebin. Second, it is a decompiled indicator.
You need to contact the author of the original indicator and ask him or her to add the alerts to the indicator. I got a custom indicator on the MQL5 Community and will like to add alarm to it. December 30th, at 7: Good Day, as a newbie i am keen to learn, i have an indicator that i fished off the net and see potential for it, in that i am looking for low time frame entry opportunities in conjunction with higher time frame technical analysis, i have a career in electronics and currently have a vague idea about coding, it is a histogram that needs an audible alert at condition change, there are two buffers, i currently have to visually monitor entry points.
January 2nd, at So, you failed to identify the names of the buffers used in the indicator? You can recognize them by finding the calls to SetIndexBuffer function and looking at the variables it refers to.
January 3rd, at 7: January 3rd, at 8: January 3rd, at Here we go, thanks Andriy https: January 3rd, at 6: January 18th, at January 3rd, at 2: Thank you for creating this post, this was the only really helpful article I found online on this subject.
However, I have 2 challenges with it. Can you share with me some pointers of how to fix it? The code you can find here https: There is no way, this indicator can give alerts based on data from the other charts. Unless there is some serious bug in MetaTrader 4 itself, which I highly doubt.
I followed you instructions to add an alert to a pinbar indicator. Problem is, it keeps poping the alert even when the arrow has not appeared on the chart. Could you kindly help fix it and only give a pop up alert when the indicator makes an arrow in the chart? HEre is the link to the code: January 10th, at 3: The problem is that the Up and Dn buffers are not assigned zero values by default the actual default values used are , which means that they will always be greater than 0.
To fix this, you can do the following. Add this on line I have added the two lines you suggested and it works perfectly now. However, i still have one more problem. I have another Pinbar indicator which is slightly more sensitive than the one i sent you but the code is almost similar.
I added the codes just like i did in the first one including the two lines you suggested later. However it is not popping an alert but its putting an arrow on the chart. I have attached the original code the one without an alert and the modified code the one i tried adding an alert in the modified code, you will notice i added these two lines: Could you help me identify why its not poping an alert?
Also, my compiler is giving me two warnings: January 11th, at 8: Remove return 0 ; on line This line prevents anything below it from ever executing by telling the program to return from the current function. You can get rid of the warnings by removing the declaration of those variables. However, these warnings are harmless and will not affect the execution of your indicator. January 12th, at 4: February 6th, at 9: That probably means that you have done something wrong.
It is difficult to say what without seeing the code. But i need to put an alert when the arrow appear on grafic. Need some help please. February 19th, at 7: It should not be difficult to add the alerts to this indicator if you follow my tutorial. You can learn how to do it if you study the examples for the signal type alerts.
February 20th, at February 20th, at 1: The tutorial is pretty straightforward: You just copied the code from the example. February 21st, at 1: Hello, I just try to follow your steps.. March 2nd, at 5: I think that you would get better results if you were using the names of the indicator buffers that you have found instead of the names you copied from the example in the alert checking conditions code.
Sorry, but you have to follow the whole tutorial rather than just copy and paste a piece of the example code. Please i need help in getting an alert to EMA indicator arrow. Please help me https: Hi guys, anyone knows how to code an alert in mq4 please.. I need to have an alert for when there is a color change signalling a reversal. Please have a look at the pic attached. I need urgent assistance. Hello I tried the alert indicator but I am getting errors as I tried to compile.
Here is the coding in term of my last comment. These are 2 moving averages one with cyan and aqua color and the second with blue and red colors. March 2nd, at Yanga, please do not insert large pieces of code into comments. You can use pastebin. However, your code is a decompiled indicator. I will not help with any modifications to decompiled indicators and will not allow discussing decompiled code here.
Please contact the author of the original indicator and ask him or her to modify it. TriggerCandle is number of the candle, which should be checked for the alert condition. Usually, it is either 0 or 1. The name is Beginner indicator. March 16th, at 2: By the way, there is little point in adding alerts to Beginner as the indicator repaints itself. March 17th, at 1: March 17th, at 2: That means that the alerts would be useless because they would appear either too late alerting about the dots which the indicator draws in the past — beyond the period of repainting , or on the dots that would soon disappear as the indicator repaints them.
Just launch the Beginner indicator in the Strategy Tester fast forward to see what I mean. After reading your great article on adding alerts on MT4 and MT5 indicators, i tried a few for myself successfully ie ADX and Stochastic which are my favorite indicators, however i am still learning without success how to combiine these two indicators into one. What brings me here today is this https: May 24th, at 9: So a simple condition would not work.
You have to cycle through all 5 lines each time and check whether all are above 80 or all are below The indicator buffers are set as timeseries using this line in the OnInit function:.
This means that to access the latest bar you write Ind[numb]. IndBuffer instead of Ind[numb]. LastAlertDirection should be compared to -1 on line of your code:. You can download the fixed indicator here: May 24th, at Hello Andriy, I was so happy to find your article…I read it carefully and tried to add the alerts several time adding input parameters, identify indicator buffers, set alert conditions but did not get to work them.
The other problem, after modified the original mq4 file, it could not be added to the chart. I do not get ahead of that. Here is the link of the original mq4 file: May 26th, at 1: There is currently a normal popup alert coded in this indicator. Do you want email alert to trigger at the same time as the current popup alert?
Or do you want it under different conditions? May 27th, at A lot of traders have mentioned to me in previous system releases that they really wish I had integrated an auto email alert feature, whereby you are instantly alerted via email that a signal has been generated. No longer do you have to sit and stare at charts all day! We've said it before and we'll say it again.
No disappearing, no hiding, no moving, no repainting. What you see is what you get. Let us put it this way. The next day, will those arrows still be there? If you close MT4 and restart it, will those arrows still be there? Will Forex Reversal work on my broker? Absolutely, as long as you're running the Metatrader 4 Platform. Can I receive alerts on my iPhone or Android smartphone? How many signals will I get with the Forex Reversal?
Whilst this might not seem like a lot, and whilst we can't guarantee the frequency of trades or when they'll appear, it's important to note that it is the quality of the signals that's the most important factor. Some weeks might give more signals, other weeks might not give any. There are already lots of other indicators out there offering dozens of arrows a day, but they just end up with a lot of false signals.
With the very strict criteria implemented into Forex Reversal, it means you receive extremely high probability alerts which is actually what is essential. Note that the signals can occur at any time. Patience is required, and this will be rewarded with powerful signals, to which you can apply your own technical analysis. What is the success rate of the indicator? The entries are of consistently high quality, the trader simply needs to apply the exit method of their personal choice.
Hence, the entry arrows, combined with decent technical analysis, will provide you with the reliability that traders worldwide have been seeking. Note however, we wouldn't recommend trading this powerful indicator with the forex news, remember, no indicator is perfect, yet with the Forex Reversal, the good trades outweigh the losing trades.
I have lots of different brokers, can I use this on all of them? It is a lifetime license, with no recurring costs. Additionally, if you wish to change brokers, you can do so at any time, not a problem.
Exactly which currency pairs does the Forex Reversal support? The indicator only works for Forex trading, with forex brokers running MT4. It's not designed for anything else, such as commodities, stock or shares, or binary options the latter is purely gambling anyway. How about future updates to the software? Once our software is upgraded, you shall be notified within the application itself, with a link to the new update.
It is imperative that you upgrade, since previous versions are not supported. Again, to re-iterate, this is on the condition that you have forward tested the software for at least 6 months whether in demo or live. Whilst six months may seem like a long time to test, it's imperative, because the indicator does not produce many signals, so it will naturally take a longer time to be in a position to pass judgement.
We're giving you the opportunity to download the manual, so you can see how to actually use the indicator, should you wish to purchase it. After great endeavour, introducing the amazing: Years of hard work have gone into producing what we believe is the best arrow based forex indicator , which we are making available to the public for the first time; please don't jeopardise this for the rest by engaging in any cracking activities.
