Saving Tag cloud information

Recommended Posts

joepaulp

Hi there,

Thanks for all the help in this forum. Appreciate all your help.

Wanted to get some idea about how would one approach this kind of problem.

Wanted to read the ticker cloud from something like this website into a text file with the info about the relative size of the tickers.

Actual sizing doesn't matter, it just have to be in some scale say 0 to 100.

http://stockcharts.com/charts/tickercloud.html

The ideal output would be like this, the ticker and size of the ticker

AA 0

AAPL 20

AMZN 30

IWF 20

So on

Thanks again for this wonderful forum and all the people here.

thanks

It's just a bunch of links with varrying font sizes, i.e.:

<A style="FONT-SIZE: 19px" title="Eaton Corp." href="http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=ETN">etn</A>

You could probably just get a collection of the links and check the properties in a loop. See _IELinkGetCollection() in the help file.
