Hi,
I have more than one application using IQFeed,
with same login ID so I can have n clients for each application.

e.g.:
login ID 12345
Application A 4 clients
Application B 2 clients

I would like to disconnect the applications from IQFeed separately

so for example if I close Application A, I would like disconnect just the related 4 clients, not the login ID.
Doing this I would be able to check how many clients are still connected and in case of the Application B is not running I can completely close the IQFeed form.

I tried disconnecting the COM objects

DTNIQFeedCOMLib.MarketDepth2.ReqServerDisconnect();
DTNIQFeedCOMLib.LevelOne2.ReqServerDisconnect();

but no results

I tried also through Admin TCP/IP

S,DISCONNECT

but it closes the general connection without unlink the clients (anyway it wouldn't be useful for my purpose)
but no results

Is there any way to achieve this management?


It's my first time in this forum I hope to be enough clear.


I'm using IQFeed 1.0.0.0

Many thanks for your support

AFAIK you can just close the sockets of Application A. IQConnect will terminate only if all sockets are closed, so if Application B still has sockets open, IQConnect will remain connected.

Also IQConnect will terminate only after a timeout, which can be changed per command line option and some registry setting.

Another thing your application could do, is use S,CLIENTSTATS ON to see which other connections exist, but that doesn't seem necessary.

Hope that helps until DTN will respond tomorrow.

(I'm assuming Application B has its own admin socket connection. That might be necessary.)

QuickTick is correct. Closing application A will have no effect on the IQFeed app's connectivity, as long as IQFeed can detect one client currently connected from any app on that PC, it will remain open.

I think I cannot disconnect the socket because the IQFeed is initialized directly opening the IQFeed exe

string login = "...";
string password = "...";
string connect = JTConstants.IQProduct + login + password + JTConstants.IQConnectType;
Process.Start(JTConstants.IQApplicationName, connect);

You don't need to call disconnect on the COM object's socket, but as soon as they go out of scope they will get cleaned up.

The socket.disconnect method I think is what you are looking for, and that is not exposed via the COM object currently.

Another note though on this, given that this is the last release to have updates to our COM objects, it would probably behoove you to consider doing any new development via socket code anyhow, and then you can create or delete the socket as you see fit.
