Investor/RT Tour
News Browser

The news browser is a general purpose object designed for browsing or searching for news items on file in the Investor/RT database. The news browser window has two sub windows. The top half of the window shows a scrollable list of one line headlines for each news item on file. When a news headline is selected in this list, the full text of the news items appears in the text viewing area at the bottom of the news browser window.  

News Browser

Double-clicking a headline opens a text window containing the full text of the news item. Facilities are provided for searching the headlines for words or phrases of interest. News items may be deleted individually or en masse in a news browser. Some news items are received by Investor/RT with an explicit declaration of the ticker symbol(s) to which the item refers. In such cases, Investor/RT links the news item automatically to the associated instrument if the referenced symbols are being tracked. Many news items are received by Investor/RT without any automatic associations. When reading such items in the news browser, a facility is provided to enable the user to assign the news item to one or more instruments. These news linkages, whether automatic or user-linked, make the news item accessible from the instrument. Linked news items are typically retained for a longer period than free standing news item.

All data services supported by Investor/RT transmit various kinds of textual items including news headlines, market advisories, full text news stories, market summaries, etc. Investor/RT captures all transmitted news items, stores them in the database and, in some cases, links the news items to the instrument(s) to which each item pertains. The News Browser is a tool for reviewing, searching, and organizing the news items captured by Investor/RT. When a news browser window is the front most window, the news browser toolbar is visible.
