Obtain real-time data from FactSet Workstation

Syntax

T = realtime(c,Srv,Sec,Cb)
T = realtime(c,Srv,Sec)

Description

example

T = realtime(c,Srv,Sec,Cb) asynchronously requests real-time or streaming data from the FactSet® Workstation.

example

T = realtime(c,Srv,Sec) asynchronously requests real-time or streaming data from the FactSet Workstation. When Cb is not specified, the default message event handler factsetMessageEventHandler is used.

To request real-time or streaming data for the symbol 'ABDC-USA' from the service 'FDS1', a user-defined event handler (myMessageEventHandler) is used to process message events using this syntax.

t = realtime(c,'FDS1','ABCD-USA',@(varargin)myMessageEventHandler(varargin))

To request real-time or streaming data for the symbol 'ABDC-USA' from the service 'FDS1', using this syntax.

t = realtime(c,'FDS1','ABCD-USA')

The default event handler is used which returns a structure X to the base MATLAB® workspace containing the latest data for the symbol 'ABCD-USA'. X is updated as new message events are received.
