Great post, thank you so much for taking the time to organize the steps, provide screenshots, and tools. Most people aren't so willing to help others, too busy trying to get their own I guess... Anyways, i'm just starting with EA's. I know how to code so I thought I should apply my skills here
I'm having some trouble with your Period_Converter_Opt indicator. It works as an indicator correct? I added it to the indicators folder, opened it in MetaEditor, compiled it (compiled successfully), then it appeared in my indicator list, I try to drag it onto the chart BUT I get no popup to set the parameters, and in the terminal it says:
2014.07.30 22:52:03.548 Custom indicator Period_Converter_Opt EURUSD,M1: removed
2014.07.30 22:52:03.548 Custom indicator Period_Converter_Opt EURUSD,M1: loaded successfully
notice the same timestamp? It gets removed immediately after I add it, and like I said no popup. I'm wondering how everyone else got it to work so easily... I got upto this step quite easily. So close!!
Anyways, hope you can help me!
