We are developing an app on Eikon and require help on the below -
@Vini Thanks for your question. If you are looking to work with .NET and Eikon - the best way to do this is to use our latest Refinitiv Data Platform (RDP) libraries (.NET version is in alpha). These libraries have a complete version of our Eikon Data API embedded in them - so you can use both the latest platform capabilities such as Search and an expanded Historical Pricing service as well as access to all the data Eikon has to offer. You can open a desktop session when working with this library.
The easiest way to see examples of these APIs actually working is to use the new CODEBOOK app in Eikon (type codebook into Eikon search bar) - which once opened gives you access to both Eikon Data API samples (using the RDP libraries) and also accessing RDP samples.
Specifically I will address you points:
1) Eikon Data API (though this has been fully embedded into the RDP library the way it works is exactly the same).
There are lots of documents and samples available for each of these API from those links,
2) You should be aware of data limits per API call you can find out more information here
3) Yes as far as I am aware you can implement anything in your own code. You just need to be aware that data from Eikon cannot leave the desktop environment according to the license.
4) The Eikon Data API has a number of API calls:
get_timeseries : for historical pricing series
get_data : for all fundamental and reference fields
get_news_headlines : for getting news headlines according to some sort of query
get_news_story : returns a news story for a given storyID
StreamingPrices : allows you to retrieve live streaming prices using our websocket API.
get_symbology : allows you to convert symbology from different schemas. ie ISIN to RIC and many others.
5) Each of the pages you see in Eikon is built from various data fields. We have a content navigator which is call the Data Item Browser (type DIB into eikon search bar) that will help you navigate all content available from the Eikon Data API. Regarding the navigation the view is what you want so Ownership Summary is actually OWNS to if you type eg VOD.L OWNS into eikon search and hit enter you go there. Every view (or app) in Eikon has such a code which you can use CHT is chart, OPW is option watch, DS is debt structure etc You can see what these are in the top right hand corner of every app.
I hope this can help.
I'm guessing your question is related to Eikon App Studio program. If this is indeed the case, then please be informed that App Studio .NET SDK together with the whole concept of WPF apps in Eikon App Studio are no longer supported. If you're looking to join Eikon App Studio program, the only option is a Web app.
