Is adding portfolio capability in your feature-adding plans? It would be nice to be able to indicate how many shares I own and the purchase price. That way I'll know exactly how much money I'm losing!

Great plasmoid though. Very useful!

Hi ghstwrtr,

I am thinking about this for the next version as it is something that I would use as well. Not very hard from the display point of view, but requires a major rework on the configuration dialog which is currently quite simply.

Great plasmoid - I really like it. Also nice improvements over the original widget.

However, I have a few remarks concerning layout and functionality.

(1) Not enough space is provided for decription of the ticker symbols (for example ^DJIs description shows as 'Dow Jones Industr' - resizing does not change the situation).

(2) Currency quotes like 'EURDOL=X' don't show the changes (instead NAs are displayed)

(3) Would be nice if a click on a quote would open a link to yahoo finance.

(4) The style of the changes should maybe be displayed in the usual ticker form, i.e. absolute change (change in %), instead of absolute change- change in percent.

(5) In my opinion it would be better to to display full name of an asset bold and the ticker symbol in normal font (or in brackets). Not the other way around (or provide an option which makes this possible).

Thanks for the feedback dawo.

1. Unfortunately, the yahoo API I am using has already truncated the description.

2. Slightly confused about this, but will look into it in the future

3. Done in v2.0!

4. Done in v2.0!

5. Oops, missed this one, and I probably agree. Will consider this for v2.1.

 Localized yahoo finance link

The new click link feature is great, but would it be possible to localize it? Automatically or via a configuration option.

 proxy configuration

Can you tell which telecom stack are you using because my the stock plasmoid works fine from home but not from my work where there is a proxy. I tried to change the proxy setting in KDE but without success although Conqueror works fine.

 Text Colour

Version 1 worked for me, version 2.0 doesn't. It doesn't display correclty. Text colour doesn't seem to be configurable anymore.
When clicking on an (empty) entry yahoo only displays a site containing the text: "Error: Please enter a ticker symbol."

I'll send you an eMail how it looks at my desktop

 Proxy - Re: Text Colour

 by Moppel on: Mar 17 2009

The problems I'm seeing seem to result from the different access method used.
Behind a proxy nothing is displayed whilst the same configuration works on a network without a proxy.
Please reconsider using KIO again.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
