I’ve decided to give away for free one of my MT4 scripts – Screenshooter. It is an utility for doing screenshots of MT4 charts into gif files, and optionally ftp-ing them to some server, typically in order to display them on website.
You can download file from this link: Screenshooter.ex4.
To install it, copy the ex4 file to experts\scripts folder of your MT4 installation and restart MT4. It will appear under ’scripts’ in your Navigator window, then you can attach it to chart.
If you set it to continuous mode, it will make a screenshot on every candle open. Otherwise, it will just do 1 screenshot and quit.
If you set up FTP in your MT4 options and provide ftp path, script will also upload the file to the specified location.
Also, sound can be played, if specified in parameters.
The width/height parameters do control the size of resulting file – size of your chart do not matter!
Please note, that I am not able to give support to all readers. Like it or not.
However, my existing customers can get the support anyway. Also, if you want some modification let me know, so we’ll discuss it.
Also, I have created very simple PHP script for displaying gallery of such images. I created empty folder on my website, put the php script there, then setup MT4 to upload screenshoots there. Result looks like this. The script is here: Screenshooter
