"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim
"Just a quick one to say I'm very impressed so far :) The documentation for developers is excellent and I've quickly managed to get an app written to do historical downloads. The system is very robust and pretty quick considering the extent of data that's available. The support guys have been very helpful too, in combination with the forums it's been plain sailing so far!" - Comment from Adam

Have a request for future watchlists:

* Screen real estate is hard to come by...
* Watchlist cells have half of the vertical space taken up by the symbol, other half is white space.
* How about implementing a resizing capability for vertical space in the cells, similar to how
you allow for horizontal resizing? Horizontally, I can cram stuff together as much as I stand,
but can do nothing for vertical sizing.


This way, I can scrunch down the vertical real estate my watchlist cells use, while still having a
large enough font size for easy viewing of the symbols & data.

You might apply this same idea to the header row, right above the symbol/data cells, too, as
there's wasted 'gray' space on my watchlists here, too.

Thanks...

Thanks for the suggestion AMA. We will put this on the list, but DTN.IQ is primarily being developed in maintenance mode as opposed to adding new functionality and features. Instead, our client development efforts have been focused on our ProphetX platform. With ProphetX, we do have a greater focus on screen real-estate. In Quote Sheets (like a watch list in DTN.IQ), you can resize height, width and other properties not exposed in DTN.IQ. You can also run in "Caption-less Mode" and remove scroll bars and tool bars. See the attached screen shot.

I finally got around these issues by starting to use Excel/DDE as a way to watch some numbers. Excel is very flexible and can be customized in a zillion ways; much more so than Watchlists will ever be able to do...
