3rd party information

Question

I think you had something like this in QT with message boards; dont' recall if you had other options.

I'd love to be able to add a window like news that instead links to a 3rd party site with relevant information.      For instance, if i wanted to see insides to have a linked window that when i went to another symbol it updated the window by inserting the ticker name into a variable and showing me this URL inside the window:  http://www.zacks.com/stock/research/QSII/insider-transactions     or similar for earnings history like this http://www.zacks.com/stock/chart/QSII/price-consensus-eps-surprise-chart

My vision would be that the linked window would just display a web page and would have a set URL with a variable to insert the ticker into the right place.    

Any thoughts about whether this would be viable/doable?

I can't say I am crazy about the idea of doing it in MT. There are enough problems with the embedded browser causing lockups. Don't want to expand the functionality.  Once we add an API, anyone would be able to add stuff that interacts with MT.  One of the "Events" that would be available via the API is when an linked symbol changed.
