Hello!What is the proposed way to programmatically locate symbols (RICs) using a user entered search term?
We are currently using the Eikon .NET Timeseries API in C#.
@GoGoGroundhog unfortunately there is not a way you can achieve this with .NET. The workflow for App Studio apps implies a user using the search field that is a part of the standard container, results of the search get injected into the app through the ContextChanged event.
Okay I found the RSearch/EikonDesktopDataAPI COM APIs which may be helpful for this task.
Is anyone able to answer these questions:
- can I use the EikonDesktopDataAPI/RSearch in a process explicitly targeting 64bits?
- is my understanding right that though I can search for display names and/or RICs the response will always only contain RIC names? Will I have to issue a request to another API to resolve display names for every search result?
