Version 1.2.0 uploaded

1. Create a Interface that will allow you to just switch websites from where you want to get the quote. Out of the box, this release supports, Yahoo India and NSE India sites.
2. Added the NSE India provider. This only supports quotes as of now as the NSE charts are based on java applets.
3. Some reorganization of code to make it more maintainable and some additional comments to help you, if you are looking at the code.

Update on changes in the Yahoo Finance Site

The Yahoo finance site has changed and this has broken some parts of the ISQ component. This post lists the parts that are broken and and workarounds if avbl.

  • The way yahoo handles and reports wrong symbols has changed and this has broken the Invalid symbol recognization. This will be fixed in the next version
  • The way yahoo handles symbol and exchange matching has changed. So when you provide the symbol and exchange the component may break.
    • The workaround for this is to use the fully qualified symbol. ie. the symbol also contains the exchange information (.NS or .BO).

The next version of the component will work with the new changes
