suggestions for displaying a stock quote with QlikView Server

Hello,

I am currently have a qv document published using QlikView Server 8.5 with the IE plugin.

I have a suggestion to display a stock quote in the QlikView document which I will retrieve in real-time from a website (the data will not reside in the QlikView document).

I am looking for suggestions on an approach to this request. I have thought of creating a text field and a button. When the user selects the button I can use vbscript (macro) to retrieve the current quote.

Thank You,

Sounds like a good approach.

If you can get the quote back as an image stream, you won't even need the macro, by using a URL and variable in a textbox.
