Include a reference to the follwing web  service:

http://ws.invesbot.com/stockquotes.asmx

Do some code like this:

Dim ws As New com.invesbot.ws.StockQuotes
Label1.Text = ws.GetQuote("YHOO").InnerText

This returns the whole xml chunk, so you could probably parse out
some stuff or find a better way to do it (hey, I'm just throwing
this together.) For a ticker, you could then use some javascript to
make this dance across the screen and combine it with the page
viewer webpart...The possibilites are endless.

While I try to add web  reference I get the following error:

The underlying connection was closed: The proxy name could not be resolved,
verify correct proxy configuration.

I checked my Proxy Configuration it all seems to be fine.... Can anyone help on
this!!!!

DWP demonstrates not only how to get stock quotes on a regular periodic basis without refreshing the entire page, it also shows how to make asynchronous calls to any CGI script and process the results.

That certainly was a lot easier than deploying a new
webpart.

The content editor part  is an excellent way to use existing web
services in a quick and clean way. I've got a nice weather part that
displays a loop of local radar images.

I'm replying to an old message here. I want a weather web  part, and
I'm not too thrilled w/ the free one from MSNBC. It always is
showing the wrong info ("tomorrow" is actually the forecast
for "today" and the current conditions are usually very off- seems
to be
caching temp/conditions that are hours-old).

I see that Chris has a "weather part  that displays a loop of local
radar images." Chris, or anyone else- can you share  this with me? Is
this something you set up in a similar fashion to Todd's ticker  web
part? I'm no good w/ tweaking code, so I'd need to snag it from some
other kind soul out there.

And if there is a configuration problem w/ my
MSNBC weather web part, can you give me a hint as to what I might be
doing wrong?

I have something like this using a JavaScript call to the Yahoo Weather
Web Service. But I wrote it over a year ago so I'll have to go looking
for it.
