How do I add a ticker to my Mac desktop?

If your Apple Mac system has support for Dashboard, you can install a Widget to display your ticker on your Dashboard.

First you will need to install the Daisypath Dashboard widget then you can add as many tickers as you like to your widget by copying and pasting the ticker id into the widget's options.

To add tickers to your Apple dashboard widget.

  1. Click on the Apple Dashboard link and copy the ticker id into your clipboard.
    enter ticker id
  2. Paste the Daisypath ticker id into the options box.
    enter ticker id
  3. Click on Update widget, and your widget will rotate to display the ticker you have just added.
    update widget

You can continue to add tickers, by entering the ticker ids into the widget options box. If you want to, you can have your Lilypie, Daisypath and PitaPata tickers all in one widget or you can download separate dashboard widgets from each site.

You can change the order of your tickers by, moving the ticker ids around.
multiple tickers

Your tickers will update each time you start your computer. If you leave your computer on all the time, you can update the tickers by clicking on the widget and using the shortcut combination Command-R to refresh. You do the shortcut by holding down the command key (sometimes called the Apple key) and the R letter key at the same time.
