stock glance v3 stopped working correctly

MD 2015.7 #1358

On summary page it shows the top line (in black with symbol/stock/price etc.) but no financial data and is one line only.
I have about 20 stocks and they are updated correctly in MD but just do not show in stock glance.

I can uninstall/reinstall V3 and move the header line all around on the summary page but I get no more than the header line.

What is baffling me is that stock glance worked just fine up until 5 days ago and then just broke before my eyes, with no
coaching from me.

Anybody else??

    Can you tell me which version of stock glance you have installed? I made several changes over the past few weeks and it isn't clear to me which version is on the IK server.

    From “manage extensions” I find V3.

    I have held off for a few day to report …. It fixed itself….so to speak.

    All I did was to look into a few of my stocks in MD… and then when I went back to the summary
    page, all was good in stock glance. Dunno why and it has been good since.

    Thanks for this extension. I just discovered it recently and it is a worthy snapshot.

    I have committed a new version (v4) that should make this problem less
    likely to occur again. Could you please publish it?

    I am running 2015.7 (1352) on a windows 7 PC 64bit.
    I haven’t used “stock Glance before, but I loaded V4 this morning and it completely destroyed the second and third column of the summary screen. The screen looked like it was not refreshing correctly when moving the scroll bar on the right. Tried moving the location of “Stock Glance” under File – Preferences -Summary Page to no effect. Closed and reopened Moneydance, no change. Removed “Stock Glance” and things returned to normal.

    Can you guys pull the latest version from the repo and make it available (it is version 6)? It should fix these problems and the ones discussed in http://help.infinitekind.com/discussions/moneydance-development/1340-how-to-submit-a-new-extension.

    Thanks

    Hi Jim, did you look at this: http://help.infinitekind.com/discussions/problems/24087-conflict-between-moneydance-20157-and-quotes-and-exchanges-rates-extension-v1000
    I found out that somehow your extension had some issues when on the main page. It might be that it is fixed in your version 6 but it is not published yet.
    Is there any reason for this, IK staff?

    IK does not have a very good process for supporting external contributions.
    It is totally dependent on someone at IK reading the relevant posting,
    pulling and update from git and signing it. Quite slow and unreliable.

    The code is in https://github.com/jameslarus/stockglance.git if you want to
    build it yourself.

    Hi Jim,
    Sorry for the delay in getting this signed and updated in the extension registry. v6 is now signed and ready to go. I agree that our process needs work, and I've just implemented a bash script to make the process much faster, but it will always (for obvious reasons) need a human review of the code. I really like the changes in this version!

    Thanks,

    Thank @Sean. I should have written it this way in the first place, but it started as quick hack for me.

    BTW the CollapsibleRefresher interface is quite useful for this type of widget, but isn't documented. You consider adding it to the API.

    And, as @Shamsu indicates, it looks like I haven't got currencies right yet. I tested it with 2, but given the rather opaque interface around currency, it isn't surprising that something is messed up. Is there a simple example of code that properly handled multiple currencies? i.e. displace security prices and values in one currency and accumulates them and displays the sum in the base currency?

    They should be sorted in alphabetical order, but if not, just click on the
    title at the top of the column to resort.

    Thanks for the very useful extension. It works well on my OS X mac's running from a USB data file.

    Some show/don't show selectors, however, for items such as columns and securities with zero balance, would be nice so that the extension display size could be optimized for computer display size.
