Topic: Converting EA back to FSB file?

Popov,

I accidentally deleted some of my Old EA from the FSB strategy file.

But I still have the EA in the MT4 Expert folder...is there any way to revert this MT4 EA file back to FSB so that I can view it via FSB?

Can FSB have an import button just as it has an export button?

Sorry Pit, I don't quite understand your explanation.  Can you elaborate?  You mean there is a program called pappierkorb? Where to find it?

I hope you are not referring to the recycle bin because I've deleted this EA long ago and emptied my recycle Bin already.

Open the source and you can rebuild it from there.

In German languages "Papierkorb" means, translated to English, "Recycle Bin". In Swedish it is "papperskorgen"!

Thanks Leon, for the translation smile

Too bad, by the time Pit mentioned, I've already emptied my Recycle Bin.

Footon taught me a way out, and I gained additional knowledge...so nothing lost, something gained in the process.

can you explain it for an idiot? what is source?

Re: Converting EA back to FSB file?

In your MT4,

1. Go to "File" and click "Open Data Folder"
2. Click "MQL4" and click "Expert"
3. Select the EA you want to view and click the one with "MQL4 Source File"
4. Your selected file that you click will open in MetaEditor and there you can view the opening and closing slots and all the details of your EA and rebuild from there.

thanks.........that word is so insufficient but there is no other way.

I'm happy to help Pradeep, cos I was once very blurred and there were many kind and patient souls in FSB, bearing with me and helping me out.  Now I'm paying it forward.  I can tell you have the same spirit too...positive about things and paying forward when the situation arise.
