For those who envisage building an Excel RTD server, I have written a tutorial and open-sourced the code on SourceForge.

The following topics are covered:

  • How RTD servers work
  • Architecture
  • Excel, Multithreading and callbacks
  • Providing easy-to-read function names
  • Talking to the GoogleMaps APIs
  • Avoiding Application Domain misery
  • Embedding a GoogleMap page in an Excel Task Pane
  • Creating the Setup project
  • Changing the Excel RTD Throttle Interval
  • Utility functions
  • Building help from the source with Sandcastle

I hope that you will find it useful.
