Fills a GStructChartPatterns object array with information about all current formations in formation of a certain time unit.

void  GChartPatterns.GetBuild(
   ENUM_TIMEFRAMES       timeFrame,           // Timeframe of the requested values
   GStructChartPatterns  &array[]             // Array for output of the data
   int                   minimumCompleteness = 1  // The minimum completeness of the formation


[in]  Timeframe of the detected formations.


[out]  The array that should be filled with the data. Due to a bug of the MT5 terminal, enough memory must be reserved with ArrayResize() before the array is passed to the function.


[in]  The minimum completeness of the formation before it is included in the array.

Return value

In case of success, the passed array is filled with the elements and the array is shortened to the number of elements.


The array should always be checked for content after filling. If there are no formations in Enstehung, the size of the array is 0.
