Re: Get data from a web page [SOLVED]

After some trials with curl, I finally settled on a webview-based solution since that was the simplest way to extract data from a single page built by WebView (and identical to the page actually displayed with a standard browser). I created class GetShareQuote which include the function CheckShareVa...

Re: wxWebView on trunk [SOLVED]

Turns out that DialogBlocks does not generate the links for webview libraries. Adding them manually solved the problem.

Re: wxWebView on trunk [SOLVED]

Thanks. I changed the creation of the wxWebView object (see below), and added the libraries explicitly in the project properties, but this did not resolve the issue: getsharequote.obj : error LNK2001: symbole externe non résolu "public: static class wxWebView * __cdecl wxWebView::New(class wxWi...

Re: wxWebView on trunk [SOLVED]

The project includes D:\wxWidgets/lib/vc_lib among the additional linker libraries

This is where wxWidgets stores the wxmsw31u_webview.lib and wxmsw31ud_webview.lib

Re: Get data from a web page [SOLVED]

Thanks for the code. The issue is more complicated than just posting a query to a website: for companies which do not have a Ticker symbols (Saint-Gobain, for example) wsj.com does not provide quotes. BNP happens to be the Ticker symbol for BNP-Paribas in the NYSE. On the other hand, using the ISIN ...

In w...

Re: Get data from a web page [SOLVED]

curl is designed to handle HTTPS (among other protocoles), but requires some time to learn and integrate. @eranon This is precisely the problem I am trying to resolve. The WebView version works under Windows 10, I'll post it on the website. Since none of the other users of the application complained...
