Fairly cool... I'm not too sure that parsing html is the best way of getting quotes though. Any change in their formatting and your toast.

Include a setup for your control.

It looks like the yahoo links are dead
I cant even open them by typing the
url in Netscape or IE.
Still freakin awesome code though, we'll
just have to find a new URL to parse from
:->

Thanks for the free code man!!

Hello, Can someone tell me if I can find some source code that could help me on a little project that handles Buy and Sell transactions using a Queue class in C++?
The program is for my personal use that I can also learn how to program better in C++. The idea of this program is that I can get a file input as text file:
1995,1,1,BUY,"FrontRunner NetNetNet Fund",50,10.00
1995,6,15,SELL,"FrontRunner NetNetNet Fund",20,5.00
1996,1,1,BUY,"FrontRunner NetNetNet Fund",50,20.00

Each line designates:
Date, month, day, transactiontype, "name of fund", # of share, price/share

This report could list and output a file that simulates a capital gain or loss for each ``SELL'' transaction for the tax year. There is a comparison made on the date. If the date difference is less than a year then it would calculate one type interest else if the date difference is greater than a year it calculates a different tax on the capital gain.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Sincerely,
JJ

I have added some cool features to this prog. Such as a combobox in place of the old textbox, which can add and delete favorite ticker symbols. A winsock control to check your online status, a print feature in the chart window, some error checks, etc. It works pretty well. I would just repost it but Zaid did not want me to. So if you are intrested in any details email me at rokinroj@jps.net or icq 2354342

I have finished and uploaded my version of this program to PlanetSourceCode. I rewrote it without using Zaid's .ocx, so if anyone wants to check it out do a search for VBMarketWatch.
Thanks

I tried to run the EXE but got an error. "Component QuickQuoter 2.0 or one of its dependencies not correctly registered." This is after I went to DOS and did "regsvr32 QuickQuoter2.0.ocx". Perhaps regsvr32 was confused by the extra period.

Please register the OCX before running the EXEs.
