    Need to display a live window on website!

    I have a real time charting/trading program and would like to have one of its windows displayed on my website. The window displays account information and is constantly updating with the market movement. It should appear on the website - updating in real time - exactly the way it does in the program.

    Would appreciate some details about the possibilities of how this could be accomplished - and the cost involved.

    When you say "live window" do you mean a window of a program that is running on your system? Or did you mean there is a place online that shows this content?

    Thanks for your response. It's a program running on my system that I use for charting and simulated trading. One of its windows displays the account's current equity, profit and loss..etc. It is running in real time driven by live data, and so it is constantly updating. I would like to display this window on my website ( a simple website dedicated just for that purpose) and make it available for others to access/view through passwords.

    Where is this real time live data coming from? Is it available as an API?

    The real time market data is subscribed to through the charting/analysis program. In order to be able to use the program, you have to subscribe to the real time market data of the specific exchange that you are interested in. In my case I subscribe to the Chicago Board of Trade.

    I see what you're getting at. The question is: Do we need to get to the "driver" of the program (the real time data) in order to be able to apply it to the same window on the website?

    I was thinking of some type of streaming technique that captures that particular window and streams it to the website - without getting into its functions!

    Is that possible?

    I get it now. You basically have this stock exchange info that you want to display on a website but the live data feed is coming from the program that you have/subscribed to.

    I'm pretty sure this is against their T&C and can't be done.

    The window does not display market data. the window I'm talking about displays account info. That's: current equity, profit and loss...etc. This information is calculated based on what happens in the charts that are powered by the market data. So noone gets to see or use the market data. It works in the background to power the charts.

    The Window I'm trying to display on the website shows only my own personal simulated account data.

    Can you give us a link to the service to which you have subscribed? It might make it easier to see what type of application this is.

    Edit: I did some searching on the CME's website. Are we talking about the E-Quotes product?

    If so, the bulk of the application seems to be installed from here:
    Code:
    <jnlp spec="1.0+" codebase="http://www.cme-equotes.com/CME/" href="installer.jnlp"> 
    
    <information>
    	<title>E-quotes Installer</title>
    	<vendor>CME Group, Inc.</vendor>
    	<icon href="QST.gif"/>
    	<offline-allowed/>
    </information>
    
    <security>
    	<all-permissions/>
    </security>
    
    <resources>
    	<j2se version="1.5+" />
    	<jar href="installer.jar"/>	
    	<jar href="application.jar"/>
    	<jar href="libraries.jar"/>
    	<jar href="additionalLibraries.jar"/>
    	<jar href="updatable.jar"/>
    	<jar href="notUpdatable.jar"/>	
    	<jar href="fonts.jar"/>	
    </resources>
    
    <installer-desc main-class=InstallerExtension.Installer >
    </installer-desc>
    
    </jnlp>
    It's all Java-based. This job would be over my head, but this might give other potential freelancers an idea of what you need - if in fact this is what you are using.


    Let us know!

    It's usually a good idea to start out with this at the VERY TOP of your CSS: * {border:0;margin:0;padding:0;}
