The new update of MetaTrader 4 platform has been released. We remind you that starting on June 1, 2012 the support of client terminal builds below 416 will no longer be provided. Therefore we strongly recommend that you update your terminals to the latest build.

If you have an older build of the client terminal, but the update window does not appear when you connect to a trade server, please download the latest terminal version from our website at https://download.mql5.com/cdn/web/metaquotes.software.corp/mt4/mt4setup.exe and install it to your terminal directory. All the settings of your terminal will be preserved.

Client Terminal

  1. Added support for sending messages concerning various events to iOS and Android powered devices using push notifications.

    Push notifications are short messages consisting of not more than 255 symbols. Such notifications are delivered immediately and they cannot be lost along the way.

    Push notifications can be sent in two ways from the client terminal:

    • Via MQL4 application - special SendNotification function has been added to MQL4 language:

      bool  SendNotification(
         string  text          // message text
         );

      This function allows MQL4 program to send push notifications to MetaQuotes ID specified in the terminal settings.

    • Via alerts function - the client terminal allows to create the alerts used to notify about the market events. They are set at the "Alerts" tab of the "Terminal" window. One type of alerting about the events is sending push notifications.

      Check "Enable Push Notifications" box to allow the client terminal to send messages.

      Then, specify one or several MetaQuotes IDs separated by commas. To find out your MetaQuotes ID, open the mobile version of the terminal and go to Settings -> Messages page. That is how that page looks in the mobile terminal for iPhone:
