Mordasius has been such a great dev. Everyday I look at his 8stock meters and thank him (in my mind). Can we double the list to 16 somehow? Cheers to Mordasius who has the best rainmeter of all.

This skin has been broken for quite a while now.

Thank you for your work! i have already added the quotes that i need but Please tell me how can i change number of digits after dot ? i am interested in Futures on currencies (for example now i see 0.75 for a canadian currencie future, but  i need 0.7505 etc

Спасибо за вашу работу! Успешно добавил интересующие меня тикеры, но не смог найти настройку отображения количества цифр после точки. На валютных фьючерсах удобнее было бы смотреть 4 цифры после запятой.

This skin stopped working around a year ago and I don't think it ever showed any futures on currencies.  Sorry but I can't really help you.

Gee whiz. I have the newest version and had it working fine but after tonight's close it no longer gets anything. Apparently Bloomberg did something on their end to foil it.

False alarm, at least I hope so. It started going again as mysteriously as it stopped.

I'm sure that Mordasius will get it working again, like always.  Keep in mind that the majority of issues with this skin are due to changes to Bloomberg.com and totally out of Mordasius' control.  In the meantime, I am doing exactly what was suggested and have temporarily unloaded the skin.

We're so lucky to have a dev that keeps this important skin running as there are few alternatives - many of which have just been abandoned.  Thanks for your tireless work!

Cheers rpitera  The folks over on the Rainmeter Forums are working on a solution and we'll get back to you as soon as we have something that works and is stable.

Bummer.  Stopped working as soon as the markets opened...

Changes working here!  Thanks to Mordasius, JSMorley and eclectic-tech for such a speedy resolution.  Fingers crossed that it satisfies the Bloomberg TOS.

I know they have yet to reply to you, but I wonder if adding a source attribution/logo like many skins do with Weather.com would help?  It is, after all, driving traffic to their site...  I know that I never started using Bloomberg until this skin.  I used to use Google Finance.

Just a thought. Cheers and thanks!

***UPDATE: Bummer... stopped working as soon as the markets opened today.***

Working for me. I'm still on RM beta r3110 (haven't been brave enough to update even though RM is bugging me to do so). Currency skin by Mordasius is also still working OK (even though others on that forum say latest RM broke that skin). So, for me, thankfully both are working perfectly, no errors and data being received OK from multiple markets.

...and now it's back.  Weird.  It just went blank for all values for about an hour and then a few minutes ago everything populated again.

I'll keep an eye on it throughout the rest of the day.

**Updated**

Worked briefly and then went back to zero values for the remainder of the day.  Tried unloading and reloading RM (which sometimes fixes other skins) but no luck.  <sigh>

Let me know if I can provide any further info.

Perfect fix. Thanks!

Me too...Stopped today. But, this has happened before, so hope it just starts to work again automatically...I changed refresh to be slower, but didn't help.

*Edit. I downloaded latest skin and upgraded to latest engine (Beta) but still not working. About/Log: 
RegExp matching error (-1) and then mostly
Fetch Error the operation timed out (ErrorCode=12002)

Nice Work!!

it not display anything that ends in 'TB'

What's wrong?

Thanks
Mordasius's avatar
Quotes from the Thai stock market ending in ":TB" need to be handled the same way as US stocks by setting ExpX=#ExpStock#.   Download the skin again see an explanation in the .inc files and get slightly wider skins to handle long stock name like "JMT Network Services".
