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/mt5/mt5setup.exe and install it to your terminal directory. All the settings of your terminal will be preserved.
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:
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:
Press "Test" button to test messages sending. If sending is successful, you will see the appropriate message and the test notification will be delivered to your mobile device.
Added the button link to MQL4.community website at the client terminal toolbar.
