README.md

Overview

This is a simple MQL4 wrapper that uses Windows native wininet.dll and shell32.dll libraries and is supported by MT4 build 600 or newer. Following features are currently supported:

  • send HTTP requests (currently supported only GET method) to a remote destination and read the body response from MQL that was compiled in build 600 and newer (not in a strict mode).

  • open HTTP(S) URI in default system's web browser

How to use

mql4-http is using system's dll libraries so make sure you enable DLL imports in MT4 before running it (Tools -> Options -> Expert Advisors -> Allow DLL imports)

#include <mql4-http.mqh>

int start () {

  string myIP = httpGET("http://icanhazip.com/");

  Print("My machine's IP is ", myIP);

  return(0);
}
#include <mql4-http.mqh>

int start () {

  httpOpen("http://example.com");

  return(0);
}
