"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim
"I ran your IQFeed DDE vs. my broker vs. a level II window for some slow-moving options. I would see the level II quote change, then your feed update instantaneously. My broker's DDE, however, would take as much as 30 seconds to update. I am not chasing milliseconds, but half a minute is unacceptable." - Comment from Rob

Having some troubles. I'm using modified code based on the C++ Watchlist example, here's a snippet from StartStreaming():

m_soc.Send(request, sizeof(request)-1); //Get quotes, this works fine

char Regional[100];
memset(Regional, 0x00, sizeof(Regional));
strcpy(Regional, "S,REGON,QQQQ\n");
m_soc.Send(Regional, sizeof(Regional)-1);


1. Am I doing something obviously wrong?
2. I'm assuming I should see messages being delivered to same same HandleMessage function as "Q" quote updates, but regional message should begin with "R". Am I mistaken?
3. I can't find anything in the API on GetLastError() or the return codes. Is this documented somewhere?

Shouldn't those sizeof()'s be strlen()'s? Just wondering, not sure how IQFeed will respond to all those extraneous nulls.

I agree. I was just following the sample code in the WatchList app provided.

I got it working by inserting some Sleep(200) between the Sends. I guess the connection manager needs a bit of time to process one request before I send another one.
