    Default Reference Manual

    Does anyone know if there is a programming reference manual and/or a listing of library or function calls and key works with defaults and expected parameters? I found some online articles on programming with MetaTrader but a search of this forum did not come up with any books or on-line references for the language.

    Hi Vigilanti,

    Personally, I have learned with the basic expert advisors included in Metatrader (Moving average and MACD Sample). I have modified each parameter to see what happens, then I have tried to add simple features, like trailing stop, money management, etc... my knowledge has increased like this. Each time I have studied a bigger code, more complex with new options.

    That's what I recommend to do.

    I try to add some guides here, but sometimes it can be complicated as the tools can be specific to different kind of system.

    Thanks Funyoo,
    The problem with that is that when you run into something that you want to research or look up the only recourse is to post on this forum and hope someone has an answer. So far I see that you are especially helpful and I wonder how good this forum would be without you. Please don't get hit by a bus!!
