    Hello

     

    On Metatrader when a trade is closed it is written a comment on at the comment column in Account tab. After my EAs made by the SQ wizard close a trade, on the comment it is just said, for example, [sl] if the trade was closed by reaching the stop loss. Is it possible to add more info: EA’s name, Magicnumber, etc.?

     

     

    On the other hand, I would like to ask how could I change the color for the EA info that appears on the chart. By default is white.

     

     

    THANKS

    Hello,

     

    to add a text into MetaTrader4 journal use the Log to Journal function as show in the example attached

     

    Also you can change label color as shown. Just doubleclick the label and use the right click to select label properties

     

    You can also us WIzard to change the color for you by a custom action applied with code:

    ObjectSet("line1", OBJPROP_COLOR, Red); // Sets EA name text color to red

    About adding the comment, I’m lost watching this source code.

    Can you tell how to program it inside EA Wizard?

    For instance, I made few versions of EA just for closing trades and attached them to few charts. How can I know which one closed particular trade without comment? So I would just add comment when trade is closed, to know which EA closed what.

    Thank you!

     

    Zoki

    Hello,

    you can add Log To Journal behind your closing function with parameter: “Trade close for: “+Symbol()

    So you will see what symbol the EA closed a trade on
