A smooth scrolling stock ticker component for your financial app.
A Stock Ticker is a continuous display of data that helps you understand the buying and selling activity going on in the stock market.
This smooth scrolling stock ticker component was developed in C++ and uses double buffering and multi-media functions, so you won't see any flickering as stock prices scroll across the ticker from right to left.
The text auto sizes based on the control's height and the super smooth anti-aliased text makes this control fit for prime time television, even though you will probably just be using it in your desktop application.
As a matter of fact, a television network in the Middle East uses this component to display stock prices at the bottom of their screen during market hours.
This control is completely customizable and comes with full C++ source code.
The StockTicker control is similar to the CNBC television Stock Ticker that runs Monday-Friday, 9:30AM-4:00PM (ET).
