Stock Quotes Sharepoint Web Part



MSN Stock Quotes Web Part - New Version*

The Stock Quotes Web Part uses the public Yahoo Finance Stock Quote Web Service to display selected stock quote information. The data are delayed by 20 minutes and provided by Yahoo Finance.
The Web Part can be used with Windows Sharepoint Services V3, MOSS, Sharepoint 2010, Sharepoint 2013 and Sharepoint 2016. 

You can configure the following web part properties:

  • the list stock symbol(s) to watch
  • the amount of information displayed by selecting specific columns
  • Stock Ticker or Table display

Clicking on a company name in the list leads you to the related Yahoo Finance page for more information on the selected stock.
Since the web part connects to an external web service, we recommend to deploy it to the Global Assemby Cache (GAC) for security reasons.

Important Note to all customers using the original MSN based web part:
On June 10, 2010 we have released a new version based on the Yahoo Finance service (since the original MSN web service has been shut down).
Please re-download the new Yahoo-based version, extract and then replace the StockQuotesWebpart.DLL (followed by an "iisreset" command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly).

Installation Instructions:

  1. download the Stock Quotes Web Part Installation Instructions (PDF file, see above) 
  2. download the StockQuotesWebpart.zip file (see above)
  3. deploy the feature to your server/farm as described in the instructions.
  4. Navigate to a page where you would like to place the webpart and choose "Site Actions/Edit Page"
  5. Add the web part to the appropriate zone. The web part is listed in the "Amrein Engineering" web part gallery section
  6. Configure the Web Part properties in the Web Part Editor "Miscellaneous" pane section as described in the Installation Instructions.

    • Stock Symbol(s): enter one or more stock symbols, separated by semicolons.
      If you enter just one stock symbol, the "Single Stock Display" applies, otherwise the stocks are rendered in Table View.

      You can lookup the available stock symbols on the Yahoo Finance web site.

      You can also request a stock index as eg.
      DJI (Dow Jones Industrial Average Index)
      ^FTSE
      (FTSE 100) 
      ^NYA (NYSE Composite Index)
      ^IXIC (NASDAQ Composite Index)
      ^GSPC (S&P 500 Index)
      ^RUI (Russell 1000 Index)
      ^N225 (Nikkei Index)
      ^HSI (Hang Seng)
      etc.

      Local Exchange stock quotes usually have a country prefix as eg.
      EZJ:L (EasyJet/London Exchange)
      DE:MUK (Bayerische Gewerbebau AG/Frankfurt Exchange)

      The web part supports web part connections thus you can optionally pass the stock symbol via a web part connection.



      You also can pass the symbol(s) via the page URL as follows:
      http://sharepointserver.com/somesite/somepage.aspx?AESQsymbol=IBM;APPL

      The URL parameter is “AESQsymbol”. You can pass multiple symbols separated by semicolons.

      Friendly Symbol Names:
      If you would like to display a “friendly symbol name” instead of the stock name returned by the web service, please append it to the symbol, separated by the “|” pipe symbol.
      Example:
      INDU|Dow Jones Index;^NYA|New York Stock Exchange

    • Stock Detail Fields: add additional columns to the list, separated by semicolons.
      The following columns are available:

      - CompanyName
      - Change
      - PercentChange
      - Currency
      - Exchange
      - Last
      - LastTime

      - ShortRatio

      - 1yrTargetPrice

      - LastTradeDate

      - OpenInterestOptions

       



      You can append a stock chart to the "Single Stock Display" by appending ";Chart" to the end of the field.
      ;Chart  adds a chart of the current trading day.
      ;Chart/v adds a chart of the past 5 days
      ;Chart/1m adds a chart of the past month
      ;Chart/3m adds a chart of the past 3 months
      ;Chart/6m adds a chart of the past 6 months
      ;Chart/y
      adds a chart of the past year

      Example:
      CompanyName;Last;Change;PercentChange;LastTime;Open;Close;Chart/y



      Friendly Header Names:
      If you would like to display a “friendly header name” instead of the default column name, please append it to the column name, separated by the “|” pipe symbol. This also allows for localization of the column names.

      Example:
      Symbol;CompanyName;Last|Stock Price;Change;PercentChange;LastTime

    • Show Table Header: turn on/off the Stock Table headers:


    • Center Text: center the text in the "Single Stock Display" mode
    • Use SSL: optionally enable server-side processing when running on https to avoid "mixed content" browser warnings.
    • UTC Offset Last Trade: enter the optional UTC offset (in hours) to correct the "Last Trade" info
    • Footer Text: Enter an optional Footer text at the bottom of the web part.
    • Show Stocks as a Ticker: display the stock quotes as a scrolling ticker:


    • Use HTML Marquee: use the HTML MARQUEE tag instead of the built-in JavaScript ticker in case you observe any browser performance problems.
    • Ticker Scroll Delay: sets the Marquee scroll delay in millseconds (1=fastest, higher values=slower)
      You can also optionally specify the marquee scroll amount in pixels by appending the value (separated by a semicolon):
      Example: 1;3
    • Ticker Background Color: Enter the desired background color of the ticker (Default:white). Use either a hex RGB value (as eg. #FFCC99) or an HTML color name (as eg. orange)
    • Ticker Font Style: Enter the optional Ticker CSS style if you want to override the standard Sharepoint font settings.
      Example: 20pt Lucida Sans

      You can optionally append more CSS styles as follows:
      20pt Lucida Sans; font-weight:bold; color:red
    • Ticker Delimiter: enter the desired Ticker delimiter character string (Default: "+++")
    • Ticker Height: enter the desired Ticker height in pixels (Default = 20 pixels)
    • Page Refresh Interval: enter the page refresh interval in minutes (0 = no page refresh)
    • Web Service Timeout: enter the desired maximum timeout (in seconds) to reach the Yahoo Finance web service (Default: 30 seconds).
    • License Key: enter your Product License Key (as supplied after purchase of the license key).
      Leave this field empty if you are using the evaluation version.

We have updated the ZIP package as of today since the DLL contained in the previous version was not strongly signed and thus could not be deployed to the GAC.
Massimo  
4/16/2009 19:51 
I keep getting a "The "StockQuotes" Web Part appears to be causing a problem. The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required." Why
Brian  
5/7/2009 15:40 
I also periodically receive an error message indicating the "StockQuotes" Web Part appears to be causing a problem. Is it possible to trap errors in that web part so it doesn't prevent the page from loading?
Brian  
5/7/2009 15:42 
The message we receive when the page doesn't load is "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." We use the web part to display the market indexes. ($INDU, $COMPX, $INX)
Juerg  
5/8/2009 11:48 
It seems that sometimes the MSN Money Web Service does not properly respond (which we actually never have experienced over here so far, but other customers also told us about this problem).
We have thus added some error handling to the web part which now prevents the page-level exception and just displays an informative message on the web part level.

Please re-download the ZIP file, extract and replace the DLL in your GAC.
You’ll also have to restart IIS in order to force re-loading of the DLL.
Ryan  
5/14/2009 01:04 
any chance you could wrap this web part into a solution file to ease deployment to larger farms?
Mark Chaaban  
8/14/2009 21:41 
is there a way for me not to display the symbol, I want to show the company name and change only.
Juerg  
8/17/2009 13:44 
Mark, the display of the stock symbol cannot be suppressed. We thus would need to add this feature as an enhancement..
Nancy  
8/18/2009 22:11 
I have done all the steps and continue to get "Cannot import this web part" when I try to use this on a page in my site. ARGH!
Juerg  
8/19/2009 10:03 
Nancy,
can you check if you added the “SafeControl” entry to the right web.config file ? You should use the one located at:

c:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\virtualdirectories\80

Did you also check your Trust Level setting ? If your have a trust level of “WSS_Minimum”, please set it to

<trust originUrl="" level="WSS_Medium" />

Finally, there might be a permission or proxy problem since the server needs to access an externalweb service at msn.com to fetch the stock data.
Chet  
8/25/2009 19:02 
Hi. First I want to say thank you for the web part. It is great. Some of the things I have heard feedback on that would be nice to see if you update in the future are Column headers and comma's in dollar amounts that exceed 999.99. Thanks.
Chet  
8/25/2009 19:25 
Also, for some reason our time is showing as Pacific, but all our server clocks and site region settings are Eastern. Any ideas?
Juerg  
8/26/2009 16:09 
Chet, the "LastTime" information as supplied by the MSN Money web service is indeed in Pacific time. The web part does not attempt to translate this value into local time.
Anne  
9/2/2009 21:55 
Great tool! It is working for for the stock symbols. But for some reason, it doesn't show a stock index like for example DJI. It is just empty when I enter that?
Juerg  
9/3/2009 15:37 
Anne, the DJI symbol indeed seems to be not available anymore. Use $INDU (Dow Jones Industrial Average Index) or look up any of the many other Dow Jones indices at the MSN Money Central web site
Fritz  
10/17/2009 01:40 
Hello there, after installing the Webpart, i´m getting the following Errormessage: MoneyCentral Web Service error: Fehler bei der Anforderung des Berechtigungstyps System.Net.WebPermission, System, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089. The only Stock-Quote i wanted to display was: DE:ALV ??? What is wrong
Juerg  
10/19/2009 10:42 
Fritz,
can you check your Trust Level setting in your web.config file?
If you have a trust level of “WSS_Minimum”, please set it to

<trust originUrl="" level="WSS_Medium" />
Fritz  
10/20/2009 00:44 
Dear Juerg, sorry but i don´t have a "trust originUrl" - Entry in my web.config. The only Thing i have is the "trustLevel name" Entry. Where do i have to place the "trust originUrl" - Entry in my web.config? Thanks Fritz
Juerg  
10/20/2009 09:36 
Fritz, that's the correct entry ! If it reads
     <trust level="WSS_Mimimum" originUrl="" />
then please change it to
     <trust level="WSS_Medium" originUrl="" />

Installed Stock Chart Webpart beautifully but cannot get Stock Quote Webpart to work. I've successfully added it to the Gallery and can add it to a Page but when I Modify it, I always get this error inside the Webpart text:
MoneyCentral Web Service error: Request for the permission of type 'System.Net.WebPermission, System, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed.
I've tried updating web.config trust level to WSS_Medium but this did not help. What else could be going on?
THANKS!
Juerg  
11/3/2009 10:11 

Jason,
the web part accesses the external MSN web service and needs the appropriate rights to be able to do this.
Can you change the „trust level” line in your web.config from
<trust level="WSS_Medium" originUrl="" /> to
<trust level="WSS_Medium" originUrl=".*" />
eg. insert the “.*” characters into the originUrl attribute.
This should allow Web Service calls to any destination.

If this does not help, check the „defaultProxy“ setting in your web.config file. By default it looks like:

<system.net>
  <defaultProxy>
     <proxy autoDetect="true" />
   </defaultProxy>
</system.net>

You might have to add your specific proxy information as follows:

<system.net>
   <defaultProxy>
      <proxy usesystemdefault=”false” proxyaddress=”http://xxx:yyyy/” bypassonlocal=”true” />
   </defaultProxy>
</system.net>

where “xxx” is your proxy server IP (ISA) and “yyyy” is the port of the proxy.

Jason  
11/5/2009 23:50 

Thanks for the help. Unfortunately I'm still having trouble. My web.congig reads:
<trust level="WSS_Custom"" originUrl="" />
I tried updating this to be "WSS_Medium" but that caused other serious problems on my site. So, I changed it back and updated the orginUrl=".*". That didn't work. When I try to add the webpart to a page I get a dialog box error reading:
Unable to add selected web part(s).
Next I looked for the <system.net> section of my web.config but there was none, so I added both of the ones you recommend.
Both of them caused other problems so I removed them. I am having exactly the same problems with the Stock Chart webpart now too. Yet, both webparts preview fine from the Webp Art Gallery.
Thanks for your help. Tried adding ".*" to my <trust level> tag.

Juerg  
11/6/2009 09:25 
Jason, did you put the DLL into the GAC at c:\windows\assembly (as it should) ?
Please note that we now have added a Sharepoint Solution file (contained in the Zip file) which allows to deploy the Web Part as a solution (please refer to the Installation PDF file).
Jason  
11/8/2009 17:07 
I have located it at C:\WINDOWS\assembly\ <br><br> In this folder I also have subfolders called GAC, GAC_32 and GAC_MSIL. Should it be in one of these instead?
Jason  
11/8/2009 18:58 
What is strangest is that I am able to get your StockChart web part to install and work no problem. I've duplicated the steps for both web parts and continue to have problems with just the StockQuote web part. The symptoms are that it successfully imports and will even be successfully added to the page, however, as soon as I "Modify the Webpart", and add Stock Symbols and/or Stock Detail Fields , I get the following error message in the web part: MoneyCentral Web Service error: Request for the permission of type 'System.Net.WebPermission, System, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed. This error does not occur when I leave the stock info blank and simply change Appearance properties.
Juerg  
11/9/2009 13:05 
Jason, this is because your current Sharepoint Server settings do not allow you to call external web services (in this case the MSN Money Central Stock Quotes Web Service at "http://office.microsoft.com/Research/Providers/MoneyCentral.asmx). We recommend to place the DLL into c:\windows\assembly (instead of the application’s bin directory). The web part calls the web service only if you add one or more stock symbols to the “Stock Symbols” field.
Juerg  
11/9/2009 13:09 
Jason, no, it should be in the c:\windows\assembly folder (not in one of the folders below it). You need to add the DLL using Windows Explorer (drag&drop) either directly at the server or via RDP (not via a network share).
Allan  
11/29/2009 22:55 
Hi Juerg, The webpart initially works fine but it will send me a 407 Proxy Authentication Required after around 10 minutes. Then I need to go to modify the webpart and change the properties (ie. stock symbols, enable the ticker etc) many times to make it work again. However, it will stop working again after around 10 minutes. Any ideas what's causing this? O yeah, I am still using the trial version. Thanks Juerg!
Juerg  
12/1/2009 13:38 

Allan,
can you change the „trust level” line in your web.config file from
<trust level="WSS_Medium" originUrl="" /> to
<trust level="WSS_Medium" originUrl=".*" />
eg. insert the “.*” characters into the originUrl attribute.
This should enable Web Service calls to any destination.
If this does not help, can you also change the “defaultProxy” setting in your web.config as follows:

<defaultProxy useDefaultCredentials="true">
   <proxy usesystemdefault="false" proxyaddress="http://xxx:yyyy" bypassonlocal="true" />
</defaultProxy>

where “xxx” is your proxy server IP (ISA) and “yyyy” is the port of the proxy.

Allan  
12/3/2009 00:53 
Hi Juerg - Thanks. Yes, I did all that. I even added:
<bypasslist>
   <add address="[a-z]+ .*\.microsoft\.com" />
   <add address="64\.4\.\..*" />
</bypasslist>
under the <defaultproxy> Somehow, it is still not consistent, as it may display the quote for 5-10 minutes and then stops.
James  
4/27/2010 20:41 
I have installed and added the stock ticker web part (evaluation version) and table view displays correctly but ticker view does not. Do I need to wait a period of time before it will begin to display?
Juerg  
5/3/2010 16:44 
James,
IE8 out-of-the box refuses to honor the MARQUEE HTML tag unless you loosen its security restrictions and also put it into compatability (Quirks) mode.
We thus went on to replace the MARQUEE tag with a JavaScript ticker which is compatible with IE8.
Please re-download the updated Zip file from our web site at /apps/page.asp?Q=5731 , extract and then replace the DLL (followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly)

I've installed the Stock Quaote Web part and getting an error of " MoneyCentral Web Service error: The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found. " I tried to point my browser to http://office.microsoft.com/Research/Providers/MoneyCentral.asmx and got "Webpage cannot be found" The dll is in both the bin and assembly directory

Juerg  
7/5/2010 10:39 
Shrikant, can you check if you entered a trailing semicolon in the "Stock Detail Fields" box ? if yes, please remove it.
Juerg  
7/5/2010 10:46 
jabolfan,
it looks like you are still using the old MSN Money Central-based (pre June 10,2010) version of the web part.
Please re-download the most recent version (which is now based on the Yahoo Finance web service).
Stephen  
7/6/2010 17:08 
I have downloaded the latest version, copied the DLL to the GAC (c:\windows\assembly), run iisrest command, but I still receive the following error: "MoneyCentral Web Service error: The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found."
Juerg  
7/6/2010 17:21 
Stephen, can you check your web part version number (at the top of the web part's configuration pane) ? It should read 1.2.5:
Stephen  
7/7/2010 10:18 
Hi Juerg, it still says "2009 AMREIN ENGINEERING AG" and there is no version number displayed, so it is still picking up the old version. I have also uploaded the new "StockQuotes.webpart" file to the Webpart Gallery and tried adding it as a new web part.
Juerg  
7/7/2010 10:29 
Stephen, can you check if you originally placed the DLL in your application's BIN folder (so Sharepoint is still picking up this old version) ? If yes, please delete the old DLL in the BIN folder.
Stephen  
7/7/2010 11:35 
Hi Juerg, I have now uninstalled the DLL from the GAC first, then copied the new DLL file again, reset iis and it now works. Thanks for your help.

We are evaluating the use of this stock quote web part and it looks great. however, when we attempt to show the graph for a single stock quote, we are getting the "secure/insecure warning. The culprit is the image that is being called from http://ichart.yahoo.com/c/bb/m/. Do you have a solution for this?
Juerg  
7/16/2010 10:20 
Mark, Yahoo Finance has no SSL support for their charts but MSN Money Central does. Thus if your stock symbol is also available on MSN Money Central, we could provide a switch to use the MSN chart instead.
Mark De Souza  
7/16/2010 20:17 
Juerg, Thanks for your quick response. On another note, is there a way to manipulate font sizes/styles at all?
Juerg  
7/18/2010 14:19 
Mark,
the web part now also applies the “Ticker Font Style” setting to the “Single Stock” display.
We also now have added support for MSN Money Central charts if your site runs on SSL.
Mark  
7/21/2010 23:12 
Hey Juerg, We are having an issue on one of our boxes so I tried just doing the full install on another server. It seems to have installed fine and I've deployed and activated it. However, when I go to add a web part I can't see it in the list of web parts. Any thoughts?
Juerg  
7/27/2010 14:02 
Mark, did you activate the feature on the correct Sharepoint top level site (sometimes the feature is erroneously activated in the Central Admin site) ?
Michael  
9/13/2010 21:31 
^DJI hasn't been working for about a week. Has the symbol been updated?
Juerg  
9/13/2010 22:17 
Michael, please replace ^DJI with INDU (Yahoo seems to recently have changed the symbol for the Dow Jones index).
Michael  
9/15/2010 17:15 
Thanks. Replacing ^DJI with INDU worked. Dow Jones displays correctly now.
Michael  
9/15/2010 21:42 
I recieve the error "The string parameter 'url' cannot be null or empty. Parameter name: url' Do I need to enter a URL in the Advanced section of the configuration properties? Thanks
Juerg  
9/16/2010 17:10 
Michael,
is the error message preceeded by „Yahoo Finance Web Service Error:” ?
Which configuration did you change before the error appeared (eg. adding a new symbol or adding an additional field to the “Stock Detail Fields” setting) ?
Brian S  
9/24/2010 17:48 
Juerg: I noticed your documentation has commas in the numeric field for Volume. How can I display them? (Trial Version). Also, is it possible to add a Get Quote button? Display Chart? Have chart change with requested quote? Thanks.
Juerg  
10/7/2010 14:35 
Brian, 
we have now fixed the problem with the missing decimal separators in the “Volume” column.
We also have added the possibility to display a chart for each entry in the table:

Just append “;Chart” to the “Stock Detail Fields” web part setting.
;Chart adds a chart of the current trading day.
;Chart/v adds a chart of the past 5 days
;Chart/y adds a chart of the past year

We have just installed this web part to display our company's stock price on our intranet home page. We're finding that the numbers sometimes display as many as 4 decimal places, and then goes back to 2. Is there any way to keep it only displaying 2 places?
Juerg  
10/25/2010 18:51 
Nate,
we have now changed the formatting of all (non-integer) numbers to 2 decimal places.
Please re-download the updated Zip file and replace the DLL (followed by an "iisreset" command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly).
Nate  
10/25/2010 20:19 
Thanks, Juerg. We will be resetting this evening. Also wondering whether this could be formatted to add a single space between the company name and the stock symbol. Currently they display with no space between.
Juerg  
10/26/2010 10:31 
Nate, the issue regarding the missing space character between the company name and the tock symbol (if just a single quote is displayed) has now also been fixed (thus you'll need to re-download once more).
Alexandra Fernández  
10/26/2010 17:25 
Good morning! In our company we bought the Stock Quotes Sharepoint Web Part. But lately we have had problems showing the ^DJI. Any information? Regards, -- ALEXANDRA FERNANDEZ
Juerg  
10/26/2010 17:51 
Alexandra, please replace ^DJI with INDU
Yahoo recently did actually change the symbol.
Alexandra Fernández  
10/26/2010 20:42 
It was working fine! but know i get : Yahoo Finance Web Service error: The underlying connection was closed: The connection was closed unexpectedly.
Juerg  
10/27/2010 16:41 
Alexandra, the Yahoo service is up and running (we have never seen any drop outs so far). Did you change anything in the web part’s configuration before it stopped working ? Can you send us the values you entered into the web part’s fields (we then might be able to replicate your situation) ?
Doris  
12/10/2010 23:54 
Hello. Can the table headers be modified? We would like to clarify "Last". Thanks!
Juerg  
12/13/2010 17:51 
Doris,
we have now added this feature as follows:

Symbol;CompanyName;Last|Current Price;Change;PercentChange;LastTime;Open;Close

eg. you can choose to display a “friendly” name for each column, if you add the pipe symbol, followed by the display name.
Michael  
12/24/2010 20:36 
Can you add a timout setting like the weather web part has?
Juerg  
12/27/2010 12:13 
Michael,
we have now added the new “Web Service Timeout” web part setting which allows to to specify the connection timeout in seconds.
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.
Chris

How do you get the web part to display the data vertically, such as you show in your example at the top of the page with the Microsoft quote?
Juerg  
2/2/2011 10:46 
Chris, the web part automatically displays its data vertically if you just specify a single stock symbol (eg. as soon as you enter multiple symbols, it displays the data as a table).
Chris  
2/2/2011 20:01 
Juerg - I can't seem to get it to display vertically with a single stock symbol input. Is there some underlying CSS file that needs to be deployed?
Juerg  
2/3/2011 11:18 
Chris, you might still have an old version. Can you check the version number by opening the web part tool pane and look it up at the top ?
Chris  
2/4/2011 07:15 
Version 1.2.20
Juerg  
2/4/2011 09:21 
Chris, so you have the most recent version. Can you send a screen shot of your problem to support@amrein.com ?
Conn  
3/1/2011 22:51 
version 1.2.21 has a empty html tag for the stock price which causes the price to display outside the webparts area.
Juerg  
3/2/2011 19:00 
Conn,
the web part indeed has a bug in the „single stock quote“ display option which requires you to
- include the “LastTime” field.
- Include the “Last” field BEFORE the “LastTime” field

The recommended sequence is:
Symbol;CompanyName;Last;Change;PercentChange;LastTime;High;Low;etc…

We will be going to fix this for the next release.
Ankit Singhal  
3/10/2011 12:02 
The web part is installed successfully but when I add it to a page, it gives this error: Yahoo Finance Web Service error: The remote name could not be resolved: 'download.finance.yahoo.com'
Juerg  
3/10/2011 13:04 
Ankit,
the web part needs to access the Yahoo Finances web service at http://download.finance.yahoo.com
The error indicates that your Sharepoint server is not granted access to external sites. This might be caused by the proxy settings. Can you check with your network administrator. Please note that the web services is not accessed by the client (eg. your local browser) but by the Sharepoint server.
Chad  
3/23/2011 18:27 
Is there anyway to change the font, font size, font color for the symbol and company. Also it would be great to able to change the graph color too. The blue doesn't match our intranet theme.
Juerg  
3/23/2011 19:06 
Chad,
you can actually use the web part’s „Ticker Font Style” to set the font family and size.
The font colors can currently not be set (please indicate if this is important for you) and the chart is actually provided by Yahoo Finance Services, so there is no option to change the chart colors.
Ankit Singhal  
7/22/2011 14:01 
Hi Juerg, we are facing a big issue with this web part in production server. We have 2 WFEs, 1 App Server and 1 dedicated Index Server. The web part starts showing the quote to be 505,218,592 and % increase as 106% while the correct figure is 94.90 and % increase is +2.76%. Please help !
Juerg  
7/22/2011 19:59 
Ankit,
Yahoo is currently having a problem with their Yahoo Finance web service which intermittently returns values that are wrong as well as cutting off the first part of the company names.
We hope that Yahoo will be able to fix the problem as soon as possible.
If the problem persits, we will provide a fix.
Conn  
8/8/2011 17:22 
Is yahoo's web service still returning bad results? We get correct results 70% of the time. Is there a way to test this bad behaviour?
Juerg  
8/8/2011 17:42 
Conn, we created a fix for this problem about 2 weeks ago. Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.
Ben  
9/21/2011 20:32 
We are having to create the web part in the code behind due some other customizations on our page. I am trying to add the stock symbols to the StockPortfolioList as Strings but it doesnt seem to like it. Any idea how the ArrayList is looking for the symbols?
Juerg  
9/22/2011 18:23 
Ben, the web part’s „StockSymbol“ property field expects the symbols to be entered as a string.
Example: INDU;MSFT;IBM
jb  
9/27/2011 15:45 
Since yesterday the US Industrial Average (INDU) does not pull anything (NA) on our web site. I know the feed from the exchange had issues yesterday (September 26) but was fixed later that morning (according to Reuters). I tried ^DJI and DJI: ^DJI retrieves a different feed (not sure what it is but the numbers do not match the published numbers) and DJI does not work (NA)
Juerg  
9/27/2011 16:35 
jb, it indeed looks like Yahoo is currently not able to provide data for the INDU symbol (it worked fine until the end of last week). We are trying to get more information but suspect that this is a legal issue (Yahoo removed support for the ^DJI symbol about one year ago but the INDU symbol continued to work).
If the problem persists, we will have to switch to an alternate web service (as eg. MSN Money) and make an update available
jb  
9/27/2011 20:37 
Juerg - we will monitor as well and wait for an update if required. Thanks!
Stephen  
10/24/2011 17:46 
I have currency exchange rates included below my stocks. Is there any way to show the "change" on the currency. It produces an "NA" currently
Juerg  
10/24/2011 18:09 
Stephen, which symbol(s) are you using for the currency exchange rates ?
Srini  
10/24/2011 20:01 
Hi, I have performed the following steps, but, unable to see the webpart. 1. Ran the batch file 2. Deployed the solution 3. Activated the feature I am able to see the web part delivered in webpart gallery. But, when I try to add the web part on a page through 'Add web Part'. I am unable to spot the webpart, it is not displyed in the Add Webparts-Webpage dialog. Our site is upgraded from MOSS2007 to 2010, but not visually. Visual upgrade is not yet done.
Juerg  
10/24/2011 20:21 
Srini, the web part should be located in the "Amrein Engineering" section:
Also, did you activate the feature in the top site collection of your Sharepoint application (correct) as opposed to in Central Administration (wrong) ?
Srini  
10/24/2011 20:35 
Hi Juerg, Amrein Engineering catagory is not visible in my case. While deploying the solution, I have selected a web application. But, to activate the feature, I am using the Site Settings in Central Admin, I am not able to see it any where else. This is the only place I am able to see.
Juerg  
10/24/2011 20:40 
Srini, you will need to activate the feature in the top site of your Sharepoint web application (via Site Actions/SiteSettings/Site Collection Feastures") since you do not intend to use the web part in Central Administration.
Srini  
10/24/2011 20:47 
Hi Juerg, I did the same as you mentioned. But, no luck. Will there any issue with Visual upgrade. As this site is not visually upgraded.
Srini  
10/24/2011 20:57 
Hi Juerg, I repeated the steps forcefully and it is working now. thanks for your help.
Grant  
11/8/2011 18:27 
Is there another issue with the Yahoo feed for INDU? It has been displaying NA for the last couple days. It does not look like the S&P is updating either.
Juerg  
11/8/2011 18:33 
Grant, Yahoo currently seems to again have a problem returning the Dow Jones index. The same problem occurred about 5 weeks ago and it got fixed after about 2 days. Let’s hope that this also is the case this time (else we will have to get the data from another source).
Paul  
11/16/2011 17:57 
Juerg, How long will you wait before pulling the DJI index from another source? Yahoo ^DJI index is still not updating and its been a couple of weeks.
Juerg  
11/17/2011 10:26 
Paul,
we have now updated the Web Part to fix the problem with the Dow Jones Index.
Please download the updated Zip file , extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.
Please also change the “INDU” (or “^DJI”) ticker symbol to “DJI” in the web part’s “Stock Symbol(s)” setting.
Tony Maddin  
11/22/2011 15:15 
Hello, We applied the latest DLL and WSP update to our SP enviornments. We still cannot see the DJI ticker. Thanks, Tony Maddin
Tony Maddin  
11/22/2011 16:36 
Hello, It took a couple of minutes for the refresh; its now showing the DJI. Thank you very much. Tony Maddin
Mike  
12/2/2011 04:19 
Thanks so much for fixing the DIJ issue ... but I think it's now having a similar issue with ^BKADR. Should I be using another symbol for ^BKADR?
Mike  
12/2/2011 04:20 
Whops ... I meant DJI
Solution to DJI issue  
12/4/2011 14:26 
Juerg, Is there any othere source that is reliable for stock quotes(including paid). Thanks
Juerg  
12/5/2011 11:56 
Mike, we checked the ^BKADR symbol (BNY Mellon ADR Index) and it seems to display the correct numbers. Can you send us a note to support@amrein.com when you notice an incorrect value ?
Juerg  
12/5/2011 11:57 
Solution to DJI issue,
we actually fixed the DJI issue on November 17. The DJI is now fetched it from the Google Finance web service. Did you already install the most recent version (V 1.2.29 or newer) ?
Mike  
12/6/2011 20:47 
Thanks Juerg ... I sent a support email about BKADR ... seems to be a 1 or 2 day delay? We have v 1.2.30 installed and DJI is working perfect. Thanks!
Juerg  
12/7/2011 10:09 
Michael,
it indeed looks like the Yahoo Finance web service has no up-to-date information on this particular index. We checked the Google Finance web service which seems to deliver more reliable data for the BNY Mellon Index.
We could adapt the web part to fetch this particular index from the Google Finance web service (as opposed to from the Yahoo Finance web service). Please tell us if this is a pressing issue.
Chet  
12/9/2011 14:16 
It seems Yahoo's service feed keeps going done a lot lately. We have seen it drop many times through out the day over the past week. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a more reliable feed to get these from? Thanks!
Justin  
12/17/2011 00:08 
Hi, we have 1/2/16 version installed, what's the step-by-step to upgrade to the new version to fix the "DJI" issue. I'm trying to follow your post on 11/17 and kind of lost. Thanks! Justin
Justin  
12/17/2011 00:10 
I meant, we have 1.2.16 version installed.
Juerg  
12/19/2011 11:34 

Justin,

  1. downolad the Zip file from this page
  2. extract the AEStockQuotesWebpart.wsp solution file
  3. place the file in the c: root folder of the Sharepoint server
  4. if you are using SP 2010, use the following PowerShell command to update the solution:
    Update-SPSolution -Identity AEStockQuotesWebpart.wsp -LiteralPath c:\AEStockQuotesWebpart.wsp -GacDeployment

    if you are using MOSS 2007 or WSS 3.0, please use the following two command lines:
    SET STSADM="c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\bin\STSADM.EXE"
    %STSADM% -o upgradesolution -name AEStockQuotesWebpart.wsp -filename c:\AEStockQuotesWebpart.wsp -immediate -allowgacdeployment
  5. perform an iisreset command.
Juerg  
12/23/2011 19:48 
Chet, for which index are you observing this ? Please note that we recently fixed a problem with the DJI, so you might download the Zip file and update the solution.
Chet  
1/12/2012 16:03 
The problem seems to be with the DJI feed. We have updated to the lastest version and can see when we trace that it is hitting google for the information, but when our pages with the web part seem to get hit too many times it begins to timeout talking to google. As soon as we remove DJI, we can see the Yahoo ones fine. We took the URL it is using and can call it from our browser without any issues refreshing many times. We are not sure why our SharePoint servers are experencing this. We see it on our Prod, Test and Dev boxes with the stock quote web part.
Juerg  
1/13/2012 19:18 
Chet,
we have added a new feature to the web part which now automatically caches the DJI for 5 minutes. This restricts the calls to the Google Finance service to 12 per hour and per Web Front end server.
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command
Mike  
3/6/2012 22:27 
I followed thru the chain of comments and reinstalled the latest version (1.2.32) but I still don't get any information for the Dow Jones Index and when I click on the name it taked me to Yahoo Finance and not Google Finance. What am I doing wrong? Right now I'm using the evaluation version.
Juerg  
3/6/2012 22:49 
Mike,
the symbol for the Dow Jones index has been changed to DJI, so please update the web part's "Stock Symbols" setting
Mike  
3/7/2012 14:33 
Thanks Juerg, that took care of the data; I have one other question - the link is going to Yahoo Finance, shouldn't it be going to Google instead.
Juerg  
3/7/2012 14:51 
Mike,
the link is indeed going to Yahoo Finance, but points to the wrong page. This has now been fixed, so you might re-download the Zip file, extract and then replace the web part DLL.
Mike  
3/9/2012 19:09 
Hi, I have a couple of questions. (1) Can this web part be used with Digital Signage? and (2) if I set the refresh rate to anything but 0, the entire page appears to flicker on the refresh; is there a way to avoid that. Thanks.
Mike  
3/9/2012 21:59 
I saw in an earlier message that you added support for MSN Money Central charts for sites that run on SSL. I just deployed to an SSL site to test it out and I'm getting the secure/unsecure message even though I changed the stock details field to Symbol;CompanyName;Last;Change;PercentChange;Chart/1/INDU. The chart is now coming from Money Central but the link shows http, not https. Is there something else I need to change?
Juerg  
3/12/2012 11:07 
Mike,

what do you mean by "Digital Signage ?

Page Refresh: the web part currently does not support AJAX and thus performs a page refresh for each "Page Refresh Interval"¨

SSL: the web part actually automatically checks if the current session is using HTTPS and modifies these URL’s accordingly.
It looks like the web part is not able to detect this situation in your environment.
We thus have added a new appSettings variable to force the usage of https URL’s as follows:

<appSettings>
   .
   .
   <add key="AESSL" value="1" />
</appSettings>

Please insert this line in your Sharepoint application’s web.config file.
You’ll need to re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command.
Mike  
3/12/2012 15:12 
Thanks Juerg. Here's a link that describes Digital Signage - http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/video/ps9339/ps7220/prod_brochure843.html
Juerg  
3/12/2012 18:07 
Mike,
please note that our web parts can only be used within Microsoft Sharepoint (it looks like the Cisco system is not based on Sharepoint).

Hi,

I have Deployed the Stock Ticker Solution in our Farm and it is giving me the following error:
Yahoo Finance Web Service error: The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required.
Have done the following things to troubleshoot this:
1. Created firewall exception for http://download.finance.yahoo.com
2. Changed the Original Proxy settings in the web.config file in the following format:
<system.net>
<defaultProxy>
<proxy usesystemdefault=”false” proxyaddress=”http://xxx:yyyy/” bypassonlocal=”true” />
</defaultProxy>
</system.net>
where “xxx” is your proxy server IP (ISA) and “yyyy” is the port of the proxy.
3. Changed the trust level settings in the we.config file:
<trust level="WSS_Minimal" originUrl="" /> to
<trust level="WSS_Medium" originUrl=".*" />

Please suggest if there is anything else I can do.
Regards.
A.
Juerg  
3/19/2012 11:11 
Ashish,
if you include the Dow Jones in the web part's "Stock Symbols" setting, you also need to make sure to allow access to http://finance.google.com

Juerg

Ricky,
what did you enter into the web part's "Stock Detail Field" ?
Tom W  
6/13/2012 14:49 
Is there a way of making the background transparent? The use a image for the background on the page and this sticks out with a color background. Thanks
Susan  
6/22/2012 19:36 
Juerg - we are showing currencies in our web part, but because of the nature of them when the price is shown only to two decimal place, it's pretty irrelevant and meaningless to our users. Can we amend to show 4 decimals points. Also the percent change indicates N/A on all of them.
Tickers used are: EURUSD=X, GBPUSD=X etc.


Juerg  
6/25/2012 10:36 
Susan,
we have now added the new option to specify the number of decimal places for numeric columns.
To specify 4 decimal places for the "Last" column, please enter

Symbol;CompanyName;Last/4

The Yahoo Finance web service unfortunately does not return the "Percent Change" value for currencies.
Please re-download the updated Zip file and replace the web part DLL (followed by an "iisreset" command).
Jorge B  
7/6/2012 20:53 
I am unable to find the DLL location to replace it. Would you please advice? Thanks
Juerg  
7/9/2012 12:08 
Jorge,
please replace the DLL as follows (assuming it’s been deployed to c:\windows\assembly):
  • use Windows File Explorer either directly at the server or via RDP (but not via a network drive) to navigate to c:\windows\assemby
  • highlight the DLL and choose “Uninstall” from the right mouse button context menu.
  • then use drag& drop to place the new version in the folder.
  • issue an “iisreset” command (using the CMD prompt)
Jorge B  
7/13/2012 21:39 
Thanks Juerg. Works fine.
AndyW  
7/24/2012 16:06 
Just installed this as per instructions, getting the following message "Yahoo Finance Web Service error: Unable to connect to the remote server" could you give me a few pointers as to where to look to fix please
Juerg  
7/25/2012 13:21 
Andy,
the Sharepoint web front-end server needs to be able to connect to http://download.finance.yahoo.com
Your Sharepoint Server thus needs permission to access external URL’s.
Can you check the trust level setting in your web.config file (typically be found at c:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80\ ) ?
It usually is set to “medium” as follows:

<trust level="WSS_Medium" originUrl="" />

and should be changed to

<trust level="WSS_Medium" originUrl=".*" />

eg. insert the “.*” characters into the originUrl attribute.
This should enable Web Service calls to any destination.
If this does not help, can you also change the “defaultProxy” setting in your web.config as follows:

<defaultProxy useDefaultCredentials="true">
  <proxy usesystemdefault="false" proxyaddress="http://xxx:yyyy" bypassonlocal="true" />
</defaultProxy>

where “xxx” is your proxy server IP (ISA) and “yyyy” is the port of the proxy.
AndyW

That fixed it

Is there a way to add MarketCap, 52 week Range, and Days Range?
Juerg  
8/8/2012 11:24 
Nick,
the web part supports „MarketCap” and “52-WeekRange”, but not (yet) Day’s Range.
We can add this indicator if needed. Please send us a quick note in this case.
Kiera

Hi we have 2-WFE, 2- App. Among one of the app is hosted central administration. Can you please tell me,whether installing in App-1 is enough or do i need to install in both WFE's or App's
Juerg  
11/5/2012 11:39 
Kiera,
just install it on one of your WFE's. The "Deploy solution" opreation will then automatically install the web part on both WFE's.

A couple of days ago, the DJI symbol no longer pulls in the data. I've tried ^DJI and INDU. All other symbols configured on the web part are working: DJI;^IXIC;^GSPC;^NYA;
Thanks for your assistance with this.

11/19/2012 13:31 
Theresa,
please use DJI for the Dow Jones index.

I get the data fine, but I can't seem to add the chart in which is a key part I need before I purchase. Please help urgently!
Juerg  
12/3/2012 11:10 
John,
you just need to append “;Chart” to the end of the web par’s “Stock Detail Fields” setting:

Example:
Symbol;CompanyName;Last;Change;PercentChange;Chart/y

;Chart adds a chart of the current trading day.
;Chart/v adds a chart of the past 5 days
;Chart/y adds a chart of the past year

see ABG-P.MC for an example.
Juerg  
12/24/2012 14:31

we checked and found that the Yahoo Finance web service do not return any data from the Madrid stock exchange where ABG-P.MC is listed.

clayton  
1/8/2013 03:22 
If I remove the CompanyName from the Stock Details Fields then it displays in Single Stock Display. The Chart only works when I have Chart/y. When I have Chart or Chart/v it displays a CHART NOT AVAILABLE image.
Juerg

clayton,
can you indicate the stock symbol you are using and your "Stock Detail Fields" web part setting ?

please make sure to not enter a trailing semicolon when entering a single stok symbol to be rendered as a "Single stock display".
To get the intraday chart for SXY.AX, please append the following to the "Stock Detail Fields" web part setting (VPTOF is the symbol used by MSN Money Central):

;Chart/1/VPTOF

NASDAQ (^IXIC) is showing a old value from a few days ago, others indexes and stocks are current and getting updated.
Juerg  
5/23/2013 20:25 
SM,
we checked the Yahoo web service and the NASDAQ quote dates from 5/17/2013, however all the other quotes seem to be up-to-date.
It thus seems that Yahoo has an intermittent problem.
If this problem persist, we will update the web part to fetch the NASDAQ quote from the Google Finance web service instead.

Hello Juerg,

Have you considered giving customers the option to either pull data from Yahoo fiance or NASDAQ. I think this will be a great flexibility. I would love this for my customers who are looking into implementing stock quotes and charts for their portal.
Juerg  
8/1/2013 12:21 
Bisi,
please note that the Yahoo Finance web service already allows you to get the quotes listed on the NASDAQ.

We noticed that the chart pulled from MS Money web service stopped providing historical data on 6/28. This is occurring on multiple symbols. We use ssl so we cannot use the Yahoo service. I was unable to find out if the msn web service is no longer supported. Any ideas on who we can test this further?
Juerg  
8/1/2013 18:16 
Andy,
we are working on a new release that will use Google Finance charts which support SSL.
Andy  
8/13/2013 15:10 
Ok, looking forward to the update. At the same time I submitted a ticket to MSN Money on the matter in using that web service script URL. After a few exchanges this is their final reply.
Thank you for writing to MSN Money Technical Support. My name is Bindu.
You can no longer view charts and graphs in MSN money it is not available.
I apologize for the inconvenience caused.
Thank you for contacting Microsoft.

Andy,
can you check the web part’s version number by opening the web part’s tool pane and looking it up at the top ?
We fixed the problem with MSN charts with version 1.3.9 in July.
Andy  
9/26/2013 16:44 
Juerg, I am on 1.3.11, the current version. When I put in Coke (KO) I get the following URL, and this url is no longer available online. MSN Money has shut down this service as their support has said, as well as the URL has no DNS.

The url I posted is the source of the image for the chart provided by the web part.
Juerg  
9/26/2013 18:51 
Andy,
we have now added SSL support for the charts. Please check the web part's new "Use SSL" setting.
Please also note that the previously used MSN Money Central chart paramters are gone, so you now need to use one of the below chart options:

;Chart adds a chart of the current trading day.
;Chart/v adds a chart of the past 5 days
;Chart/y adds a chart of the past year

Please download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.

Hi

The Stock Quotes Sharepoint Web Part was installed in our server but at the moment to add it in the home page and it's configured it the graph is not displayed, do you have any idea what could be happening? Our version is 2007.

The information displayed in the webpart it's the name of the company, change, percent change; I mean the ticket on the top works but the graph don't.

Thank you in advance.
Juerg

When I add the chart option, I get the following error: Image Fetch Error:A generic error occurred in GDI+.

I've seen suggestions that this may be a permissions issue. Can you advise as to how you are rendering the chart? Are you writing to temp directories or anything?

Thanks
Juerg  
11/4/2013 16:04 
Derek,
are you using the „Use SSL“ web part option ?
If yes, please note that the web part places the charts into the Layouts folder on the Sharepoint web front end server(s) at the following location:

c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS

The web part uses the permission of the account assigned to the Sharepoint application pool to save the chart file in the folder. You thus should check if this account has “write” permission on this folder.

Juerg

the stock symbols displayed in the ticker are actually automatically linked to the symbol's detail page on Yahoo's Finance web site (where also a chart is available).
Jamie  
12/16/2013 18:56 
Hey Juerg,

We're running 2010 and recently installed this web part on an HTTPS site collection. I've got the Use SSL option checked and the image comes in fine.

However, we've noticed that in this environment, we are sporadically getting the following message:

Yahoo Finance Web Service error: The operation has timed out

We're seeing this almost 6/10 page loads, but other times the content renders just fine. Both our IIS and Alternative Access Mappings are setup to accept HTTPS. If we can't figure this out, we'll have to remove this web part as it's affecting overall page performance. Any ideas?
Adam  
12/17/2013 16:30 
Hi,

We're also seeing lots of timeouts or connection errors from the Yahoo web service over the last couple days. We've reduced the timeout parameter to prevent page load delays, but I was wondering if we could also have a flag to customize/hide the subsequent error message when the web part fails or times out?

Thanks!
Juerg  
12/17/2013 17:50 
Jamie and Adam,
the web service does indeed not seem to be stable at the moment (one out of 3 to 4 requests create either a timeout or a network error). The service worked very reliably without any downtime for the last 4 years and we hope that Yahoo has an intermittent problem as they did with Yahoo Mail last week.

You can actually customize the web part's error message via a web.config AppSetting variable (to be added to your Sharepoint application's web.config file):

<appSettings>
   .
   .
   <add key="AESQ_ErrorMessage" value="Yahoo Finance Web Service currently unavailable" />
</appSettings>
Adam  
12/17/2013 17:58 
Perfect! Thanks Juerg.

Regards,

Adam

Important note:
we just released the new version of the “Stock Quotes” web part which takes account of the recent change made to the web service by Yahoo.
Please download the updated Zip file extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
Scott  
1/2/2014 18:41 
Do you list the current version somewhere? I have looked and not found it if you do. Also, what is the correct process for upgrading to the latest version? I looked through the list of comments and in one instance the user was told to replace the DLL file and another to put the WSP file in the root of the C: drive on the server and run Update-SPSolution.
Juerg  
1/3/2014 11:05 
Scott,
you can check the current web part versions on the following web page:
/apps/page.asp?Q=AEWebparts  

Update procedure for SP 2010/SP2013:
  1. download the updated Zip file from our web site
  2. extract the WSP solution file
  3. use the following Sharepoint PowerShell command to update the web part:

    Update-SPSolution –Identity AEStockQuotesWebpart.wsp –LiteralPath c:\AEStockQuotesWebpart.wsp –GACDeployment

    (assuming that you placed the WSP file in the root folder of the C: drive on the Sharepoint server).

Juerg  
1/3/2014 16:12 

Sandar,
the Stock Quotes web part can be personalized as follows:
Please download the most recent version and then update the web part solution.
You will then need to add a new column to your User Information List:

  1. Navigate to http://yoursite.com/yoursitecollection/_catalogs/users/simple.aspx
  2. Click on “Modify this View”:
  3. Click on “List Settings”:
  4. Create the following new “StockWatchlist” column:



    Configure the Stock Quotes web part as follows:

    Stock Symbols:
    enter the desired default symbol(s) which will be always present in the watch list.

    Example:
    AAPL;IBM;MSFT;[watchlist]

    If you don’t want to pre-populate the watch list, just enter:
    [watchlist]

    Stock Detail Fields:
    Symbol;Last;Change;PercentChange
    (eg. add the desired stock detail fields as needed).

    Footer Text:
    /addquote=Add new quote..

    (this configures the “Add new quote” link that allows each user to add quotes to his/her list)

    This will produce the following:



    The user can now add (and delete) quotes to his/her “personal” watch list.
Scott  
1/17/2014 18:14 
I have upgraded to 1.3.13 for the Stock Quotes. We still have users reporting the web part does not come up occassionally and they get

Yahoo Finance Web Service error: The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a receive.

And when this happens it takes longer to load the page.
Juerg  
1/17/2014 18:25 
Scott,
you actually should update to version 1.3.15 which has been released on January 6, 2014.
Scott  
1/17/2014 18:35 
I checked your current version at - http://www.amrein.com/apps/page.asp?Q=AEWebparts and it says 1.3.13 is the current version.
Juerg  
1/17/2014 18:43 
Scott,
we forgot to update the version number on that page (this is now fixed).
Can you check the web part’s version number by opening the web part’s tool pane and looking it up at the top ?
Scott  
1/17/2014 18:44 
I checked ours and it is at 1.3.13. I just downloaded the installer again and checked the versioninfo.txt file. That does say 1.3.15. I will try applying that later tonight.
Ted  
1/19/2014 02:17 
I have a customer who bought and really likes this web part. He asked if there was a way to display all of the "Name" - it seems to be cutting off at 17 characters. Thanks!
Juerg  
1/20/2014 10:56 
Ted,
you can assign an alias to the “Stock Symbols” (to override the default setting as displayed by the Yahoo Finance Service which is truncated to 17 characters max.) as follows:

Example:
MSFT|Microsoft Corporation

(eg. add the alias to the symbol, separated by a “|“ pipe character).

Will this web part be released as a sandboxed version for Office 365?
Juerg  
2/16/2014 20:00 
Jeff,
the Sharepoint Online "Sandbox" environment unfortunately does not allow a server-based web part to reach out to the internet. Thus it is technically not feasible to create a "sandboxed" Office365 version of the Stock Quotes web part.

Juerg  
4/23/2014 12:54 
Jay,
your Sharepoint Server needs permission to access external URL’s.
The web part needs to be able to access  http://download.finance.yahoo.com

Did you recently add a new rule to your firewall/proxy so that the Sharepoint web front end server is not able to access the above URL anymore ?
Can you also check the trust level setting in your web.config file (typically be found at c:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80\ ) ?

It usually is set to “medium” as follows:

<trust level="WSS_Medium" originUrl="" />

and should be changed to

<trust level="WSS_Medium" originUrl=".*" />

eg. insert the “.*” characters into the originUrl attribute.
This should enable Web Service calls to any destination.

If this does not help, can you also change the “defaultProxy” setting in your web.config as follows:

<defaultProxy useDefaultCredentials="true">
   <proxy usesystemdefault="false" proxyaddress="http://xxx:yyyy" bypassonlocal="true" />
</defaultProxy>

where “xxx” is your proxy server IP (ISA) and “yyyy” is the port of the proxy.

I checked on Yahoo.com at 9:30 this morning and found that our stock price was few percentage points up and the web part still not showing the new price and it is 9:45 (15 minutes after the stock market was opened). I understand that there is delay but does this sound okay (15 minutes delay)?
Juerg

Is there a problem with the webpart today? Doesn't seem to be working on our end. Is this the URL it uses: http://download.finance.yahoo.com? Yahoo says page not found...
Juerg  
7/8/2014 09:58 
CE SP Admin,
we did not notice any interruption in the Yahoo Finance web service.
Can you indicate your stock symbol(s) ?
Please note that http://download.finance.yahoo.com is just the domain part of the web service so it does not return an HTML page when accessed by a browser.

Hi,
Thanks for making life simple with this web part :)

We re trying to evaluate this for one of our customer's portal. Below are the queries we would like to get clarified. Appreciate, if you can help.
Using this web part,

1. Can we get stock price for a symbol from a particular exchange. If yes, then what are the configurations to be done.
e.g. IBM stock from NYSE OR IBM stock from NASDAQ etc.

2. Similarly how can we get price/index from London Stock Exchange, Tokyo stock excahnge etc. As suggsted on the details page, when tried EZJ:L web part is not returning any results.

3. For a single stock display view can we get "Day's Range" column value?

4. Is graph of the stock performance for period of 1 year or time frames such as 5 year available?

Best Regards,
Suhas
Juerg  
9/7/2014 12:51 
Suhas,
  1. Yes, you can specify the stock exchange (if available).
    Example for EasyJet (London Stock Exchange): EZJ.L
  2. See above
  3. The Yahoo web service does not return the live day’s range value but it returns both the day’s low and the day’s high values
  4. You can use the following charts:
    - 1 day
    - 5 days
    - 1 month
    - 3 months
    - 6 months
    - 1 year

Juerg

it seems that both the Yahoo Finance and the Google Finance web services are not making this data available.
You thus might check out the free LIBOR rates widget offered by theFinancials.com at:

when I use the | after the stock symbol to use a user friendly name it now appears all on 1 line, were before it would appear with stock symbol name on line 1 and then line 2 was currentLast;Change;PercentChange. How can I get it to look like that while entering a user firnedly name for stock name? Also, any way we can have different font for Last;Change;PercentChange then stock symbol?
Juerg  
5/20/2016 18:31 
Stephanie,
the is a glitch in the current version which renders the values in a single row (when specifying a company alias) unless you tich the web part’s “Show Table Header” setting.

To change the font for the company, please enter the below into the “Ticker Font Style” (example):

20pt Segoe UI

To change the font for the current price, change and percent change, please enter the below into the “Options” setting (example):

Another great web part. I am however having issues piping quotes to get a friendly name like...

DJI|Dow Jones Index; ^IXIC|NASA; ^GSPC|USDA; LNC|LFG

I would expect to see...

Dow Jones Index
NASA
LFG

Lastly the DJI ticker is displaying correct information but when clicked it goes to a 404 page not found. Is this an issue with the provider Yahoo?

Thanks,
Ken
Juerg  
9/28/2016 18:46 
Kenneth,
please make sure to not enter any leading blank characters right after each semicolon:

DJI|Dow Jones Index;^IXIC|NASA;^GSPC|USDA;LNC|LFG

The current version of the web part properly links the Dow Jones Index to the Yahoo Finance web site.

I'd like to confirm that you can't change the Percent change to 2 decimal places.

I saw a similar response from earlier:

we have now added the new option to specify the number of decimal places for numeric columns.
To specify 4 decimal places for the "Last" column, please enter

Symbol;CompanyName;Last/4

The Yahoo Finance web service unfortunately does not return the "Percent Change" value for currencies.
Please re-download the updated Zip file and replace the web part DLL (followed by an "iisreset" command).

please note that the web part just displays the "Percent change" value as received from the Yahoo Finance web service. Most of the time this value is formatted to 2 decimal places, but sometimes up to 4 decimal places are being returned.

Juerg, is there any way to make the Office365 version give the result that you show a couple of posts above for user "Kenneth"? It looks like the Office365 version is currently limited to show only the current price, price change & percent change, and the daily chart, but I can't show other values like 52 week hi/low, etc - is that correct?

Jeff,
the Office365 Add-In currently indeed only displays the current price, change, percent change and chart.
We will add more options to the next release scheduled for February 2017.

We are evaluating the Office 365 version of the stock quote. How do we change the styles of the fonts displayed? What do we need to add to the CSS field?

Charles,

the following classes are included for styling:
-"aestockccol" to define the Tile
-"aestockValue" is for the % value on top
-"aetprice" is the title "Price"
-"aetchange" is the title "Change"
-"aestockPrice" is the value of the price
-"aestockChange" is also the value of the change
-"aestockIndex" is linked to the index value you set.

Now to use the CSS classes, you can select them like this:
.aestockIndex{color:blue;}

Here we have changed the color of the Index value title.

I'm unable to get the Chart to show on my web part. It gives me a X box where the chart should be.

Cynthia,
the Yahoo Finance service seems to currently have an issue with its charts.
If the problem persists, we will try to add an alternate web service to provide the chart data.

Hi Juerg,
Same issue as Cynthia, no stock picture. Yahoo does seem to be down: http://chart.finance.yahoo.com/c/bb/m/DXC but https://finance.yahoo.com/chart/DXC renders an interactive chart.
Thanks!

Cynthia and Aaron,
we just published a new version which now by default gets the charts from Reuters (Yahoo still seems to have an issue with their stock charts).

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.

We have been actively using the SP2013 version of this webpart. We are now standing up our SP2016 Environments and I have downloaded the 30 day evaluation version for SharePoint 2016 and I am seeing that my "30 Day Evaluation Period has expired". Is there a way to obtain a new 30 day trial while we finish building out our 2016 Farm? Just for testing...we will plan to purchase license keys once we transition completely to 2016.

Nick,
we sent you an evaluation key for SP 2016 via e-mail.

Is there a way to specify a friendly CompanyName in the chart view, or if not, is there a way to specify how many characters are returned?

There is some confusion among our users due to the truncation of the CompanyName fields being returned by the web part, as the fund class is not visible.

The only thing I could think of is adding another Symbol column and specifying a Friendly Symbol Name for every fund, which I would use to manually override with the actual fund name. But that would require more maintenance than I'd hoped.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions on how I can see more of the company name in the web part, or how I can specify a CompanyName of my own for a particular fund.

Thanks!

Jonathan,
can you quickly check the web part’s version number by opening the web part’s tool pane and looking it up at the top ?
Can you also indicate the symbol for one of the company names that is truncated ?
Jonathan

Thanks Juerg. Now that you mention it, I would not be surprised if our web part is out of date.

Current version is 1.2.19. We use SP 2013 on-prem.

As an example, entering ticker symbol LTRHX shows 'Lord Abbett Total Return Fund C' in the web part.

This causes confusion because users think the class C fund is linked, but if the result was not truncated, I believe it would say 'Lord Abbett Total Return Fund Class R6'. The hyperlink directs to the correct fund.

If you believe an update should fix the issue, let me know which version we need and I can try to make that happen. Thanks!

Jonathan,
your version is indeed quite old (dating from December 2010) and does not yet support adding an alias to the stock symbols as eg.

LTRHX|Your alias symbol name here

We thus recommend to update the web part to the current version.
