BDM background

yes the bull & bear graphic was loaded nicely at start up.

- once the DASH and EAs are loaded, can I view that image some where ?

- how do I use the BDM Background ?
- where to put the bmp file ? (... MQL4\files\BDM ?)
- and make a template ?

Thx !

In the latest BDM he bull and bear background is only shown for a short time during startup or parameter change and only if you haven't defined a background yourself.
It is embedded in the BDM .ex4 and if you want to use it as a permanent background you have to download the .bmp image from the bottom of the post.

Background images (.bmp only) go into the MQL4/Images folder.

You can order BDM to create a background and even overlay that with a separate template.

Warning do not use the background template to load an Expert Advisor because it is destroyed on BDM unload or by changing the settings.

You can also go for a static one-color background and use a general template on it.
The background will only be fully visible of all other charts are closed, it's a background.

I wish you didn't click on it so much, that flashing red light here on my wall is annoying.  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

But seriously, that will be the documentation popup button.
