Hello! I have a few questions about contribution, API docs about contribution is very poor. I am using C#.
1) I want to load the values of different currencies in our currency, so I do this
AdxRtContribute myAdxRtContrib = MyEikonDesktopDataAPI.CreateAdxRtContribute(); myAdxRtContrib.Source = "TRC"; myAdxRtContrib.ItemName = "AUDKZTFIX="; myAdxRtContrib.Mode = "SCOPE:SERVER"; myAdxRtContrib.Contribute("BID", "271.71");
Am I right?
2) How can I test it?
3) How to check that contribution has been sent successfully?
I'm afraid unlike RtContribute function in Eikon Excel you cannot use AdxRtContribute object to send contributions to TRC source. In other words AdxRtContribute cannot be used to send contributions over the Internet to Thomson Reuters real-time data network known as Elektron. AdxRtContribute can only be used to publish data to middleware infrastructure known as TREP (Thomson Reuters Enterprise Platform). TREP in turn can contribute this data to Elektron, but you cannot send contributions straight from AdxRtContribute to Elektron network.
