Using a WDS connection, subscribe to two securities and process real-time events by using an event handler function. Then cancel the subscription.

Create a WDS connection.

c = wind;

Format output data for currency.

format bank

Using the 0002.HK and 0003.HK securities and the WDS connection, retrieve real-time data for the last price, volume, and last volume fields. Process real-time data events using the sample event handler function windEventHandler. You can use the sample event handler function or create a custom event handler function to process events.

s = {'0002.HK','0003.HK'};
f = {'rt_last','rt_vol','rt_last_vol'}};

requestid = realtime(c,s,f,@(varargin)windEventHandler(varargin))
requestid =



requestid is the request identifier associated with the subscription. The event handler function windEventHandler creates a variable in the MATLAB® workspace named winddata. This variable contains the subscription data.

Display the subscription data.
