In the last email announcing the new release it said that IQ32.dll was depreciated and would eventually be removed. I thought to myself "If that's so, how do we do RegisterClientApp?" The answer is we don't. It is not needed anymore.

Here is a console application built with Visual Studio 2008. It is in C#:

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Net.Sockets;

namespace Fundamentals {
class Fundamentals {
StreamReader streamReader;
NetworkStream IQStream;
TcpClient socket;

private void Run() {
Int32 portNumber = 5009;
try {
socket = new TcpClient("localhost", portNumber);
Console.WriteLine("socket has been initialized.");
} catch (Exception ex) {
Console.WriteLine("Error: " + ex.Message);
return;
}

DownloadFundamentals("IBM");
Console.WriteLine("Done.");
}

private void DownloadFundamentals(string sSymbol) {
try {
IQStream = socket.GetStream();
streamReader = new StreamReader(IQStream);

string quoteString = "w" + sSymbol + "\n\r";
byte[] outputBuffer = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(quoteString);
socket.GetStream().Write(outputBuffer, 0, outputBuffer.Length);
socket.GetStream().Flush();

string data = streamReader.ReadLine();
while (data.IndexOf("!ENDMSG!") < 0) {
if (data.Length > 0) {
if (data.IndexOf("..SYNTAX_ERROR..") < 0) {
if (data[0] == 'F') {
Console.WriteLine("Data: " + data);
return;
}
} else {
Console.WriteLine("Error: " + data);
}
}
data = streamReader.ReadLine();
}
return;
} catch (IOException ex) {
Console.WriteLine("DownloadFundamentals error: " + ex.Message);
}
return;
}

static void Main(string[] args) {
Fundamentals go = new Fundamentals();
go.Run();
Console.ReadKey();
}
}
}

I hope this helps.

Hello Charles, you are correct that with the current version of IQFeed, as long as the feed is already running, it is not absolutely required to call RegisterClientApp anymore. However, as I'm sure you are aware, the code posted above will not launch the feed. Furthermore, the feed must be initialized with a productID and version number (by any of the current methods) upon initial launch before it will allow any connections for data retrieval.

We also recommend that before any client connects to the feed, that you first register with the feed (even if it is already running and not absolutely required). Doing so will reduce the likelyhood that your app will break with future versions of the feed.

I'm aware that my example code does not launch the feed. I do that elsewhere. You said that IQ32.dll is depreciated. In the past I did:

[DllImport("C:\\Program Files\\DTN\\IQFeed\\IQ32.dll")]
public static extern int RegisterClientApp(
IntPtr hClient,
string szProductName,
string szProductKey,
string szProductVersion);

and I used RegisterClientApp. As I mentioned before, if IQ32.dll is no longer available (in future releases), and if you say that we still need to do RegisterClientApp, then how do we do that.

Some sample code would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Charles
