Stock quotes from Yahoo! for the Pocket PC/Windows Smart Phone.


I started with the article “Retrieve delayed Stock Quotes via Yahoo Finance on your Pocket PC” By Mähr Stefan.

The user will add the stock symbol, number of shares, and total cost to a CSV file called MyStocks.csv. This file should reside in the same folder as the program. I setup a fake one in the StockTick\bin\Debug folder. 


Using the Code

There are three classes:

  • cDetectInternet.cs
  • cDownloadYahooData.cs
  • MainForm.cs

I borrowed cDetectInternet.cs and cDownloadYahooData.cs from Mähr Stefan. 

Points of Interest

My next step will be to add functions so more stocks can be added to the CSV using the program instead of an outside editor.
