This sample demonstrates a way to author a real-time data-feed
as a high-performance C++ Excel add-in.
The application uses Excel’s RTD (Real-Time Data) protocol,
and demonstrates the following features:
- Real-time data functions that return arrays as well as scalars.
- Enhanced user interface for the Excel Formula Wizard, including drop-down
lists for enumerated values, such as field identifiers, and a pop-up dialog for
locating a security code.
- Controls for managing the performance of the feed.
