Hi guys,i may post the full source code later on , i am trying to develop further on the small piece of work i have done..

Description:

  • A small Currency ticker, based on Yahoo! Finance Data.

Why did i do this?

  • wanna prove i have a little bit of brain (lol: )
  • wanted a currency ticker that would have a portable version
  • wanted a customisable ticker that is very resource friendly
  • wanted a way of monitoring bullion rates. (there is tooo little number of apps that do it now:( )

Please post some feedback, thanks a lot.

sorry some double post , something went wrong in my firefox earlier... i think post had already been submitted

<First Release 15 Apr 2009>

Features:

  • Resource friendly (millions of thaks to wOuter because i wont have spent too many hours on this script if i had no option to overcome ram consumption - i hate ram eating programs :-) )
  • doesnt have a taskbar button, thanks to this thread.
  • I was working for weeks on this , on any spare time i get, before i release it , i had to make it friendly to users who need other currencies. for the moment it shows QAR and INR as initial pair, u can set them to be changed to choose from a few listed in there.
  • its a portable application.
  • can be minimised to run from tray
  • opens the currency page on yahoo finance in case u want to check historical data, etc.
  • uses last available data if u dont have internet connection at the given point of time (anyways thats the first data available after the application started. - if u have no connection when app starts u wont see any data probably

Future plans:

  • i am trying to decide on a logo for my applications i would add the icon soooon.
  • i might release the source code soon.
  • Need to create a settings file so that user options are remembered viz., currencies (Most Important), desktop position, on top behaviour, previously retrieved data, etc
  • will soon increase the number of currency pairs
  • first of all, i am gonna include gold and silver bullion rates, coz most currency tickers out there, dont show you the precious metal market rates if u want to see...
  • need to consider how many copies of the application can run at a time. now any number can be run.
  • most important of all, i need to check with yahoo if this doesnt violate their data usage terms. anyways to avoid anyone thinking i have some special system, i have linked it to yahoo website and i have left a note saying its based on the yahoo finance data. lets see....
