Can't get this stock to show up? Any ideas? I've tried qrvo qorvo nasdaq=qorvo qorvo=nasdaq ...

Seems to need fixed, I havn't had working quotes for a couple months now. Probably a change to the Yahoo stock page which this sources from.

ability to add high / low prices and trigger alarm or run a script if a price hits the low or high price.

Still a handy widget, thanks.

Hi, very useful widget, but it stopped working in kde 4.8. Can you have a look at it?
Thank you!

This is exactly what I was looking for, and I'm glad it works with the latest KDE even though it hasn't been updated in a while - I'm on 4.7.1 and I haven't run into any problems. Kubuntu 11.04, got it through the repositories, package plasma-widget-stockquote. Perfect little widget, cheers.

hello,
this plasmoid should not use fixed precision to print the quotes.
some tickers require precision 2 ( most of them ) but others require precision 4 (usdeur=x).
you should keep the representation given by yahoo.

I'm having trouble with some quotes:
JACK
GOOG
COP

JACK won't show up whatever I do and oddly enough GOOG and COP will only show whichever is higher in the list. Anything else I've entered has been fine.

Can anyone else reproduce this? Anyone have any ideas?

I propose you the next changement accordingly with the doc http://developer.kde.org/documentation/library/3.2-api/kio/html/classKRun.html

void
StockItem::mousePressEvent(QGraphicsSceneMouseEvent* event)
{
if (Qt::LeftButton == event->button())
{
const QString url = "http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=" + m_symbol;
KRun::runUrl(url, 0, false, false);
}
}

Thanks for the widget.

Hi and thanks for this great job...

I've a little problem. I don't find the log file, so after each install, I must to enter all informations. And if I could keep log file that would be great.

Thanks.

This is a great plasma app, but I did have some trouble installing it. This should work:
1. Run the following command:
sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake kdelibs5-dev
2. Run the commands in supplied INSTALL script

"Stock Quote" should now appear in the "Add Widgets" list

Follow-up of my previous mail
Looking at the cpp code it appears that you using the qt interface for http interface (in a previous version it was KIO). This is the reason why the KDE proxy is not used. Do you have any plan to include the KDE proxy in a future version? BTW we are in KDE-look forum.

Hi Bege,

I fixed this is 2.1 by switching back to a KIO job.

Hi,

Version 1 worked for me, version 2.0 doesn't. It doesn't display correclty. Text colour doesn't seem to be configurable anymore.
When clicking on an (empty) entry yahoo only displays a site containing the text: "Error: Please enter a ticker symbol."

I'll send you an eMail how it looks at my desktop

Report

The problems I'm seeing seem to result from the different access method used.
Behind a proxy nothing is displayed whilst the same configuration works on a network without a proxy.
Please reconsider using KIO again.
Thanks!

Can you tell which telecom stack are you using because my the stock plasmoid works fine from home but not from my work where there is a proxy. I tried to change the proxy setting in KDE but without success although Conqueror works fine.

The new click link feature is great, but would it be possible to localize it? Automatically or via a configuration option.

Hi,

I've packaged this plasmoid for Ubuntu, and it is now in the official archive - https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/plasmoid-stockquote

Great plasmoid - I really like it. Also nice improvements over the original widget.

However, I have a few remarks concerning layout and functionality.

(1) Not enough space is provided for decription of the ticker symbols (for example ^DJIs description shows as 'Dow Jones Industr' - resizing does not change the situation).

(2) Currency quotes like 'EURDOL=X' don't show the changes (instead NAs are displayed)

(3) Would be nice if a click on a quote would open a link to yahoo finance.

(4) The style of the changes should maybe be displayed in the usual ticker form, i.e. absolute change (change in %), instead of absolute change- change in percent.

(5) In my opinion it would be better to to display full name of an asset bold and the ticker symbol in normal font (or in brackets). Not the other way around (or provide an option which makes this possible).

regards,
dawo

Thanks for the feedback dawo.

1. Unfortunately, the yahoo API I am using has already truncated the description.

2. Slightly confused about this, but will look into it in the future

3. Done in v2.0!

4. Done in v2.0!

5. Oops, missed this one, and I probably agree. Will consider this for v2.1.

Is adding portfolio capability in your feature-adding plans? It would be nice to be able to indicate how many shares I own and the purchase price. That way I'll know exactly how much money I'm losing!

Great plasmoid though. Very useful!

Hi ghstwrtr,

I am thinking about this for the next version as it is something that I would use as well. Not very hard from the display point of view, but requires a major rework on the configuration dialog which is currently quite simply.
