Direct query for account balance?

Does anyone have a functioning method to query their account balance (i.e. net liquidation value) directly from the FCM?

I am needing it for Dorman and Vision currently. But would be curious if anyone has a method for any FCM.

I use mirus and dorman and can query through libzenfire ( but I dont know if it actually queries the FCM or the broker for the balance - but in any case i get the balance).

I think libzenfire might work with rithmic too, but i am not 100% sure.

Hmmm, ok

libzenfire is new to me, I just went and looked at their forum, any guidance on how to get started with it?

I notice they have a beta of a web trader that at least shows the current balance as well
