I was wondering if it would be possible to use the Slider control to emulate a neat timeline control which was developed by idvsolutions. You can see the example at the bottom of the page here
The interesting parts are as follows (other than the fantastically nice styling.)
1) It is infinitely scrollable. As you drag the slider the ticks readjust accordingly to bring in new data ranges.
2) As you adjust the size of the slider range the ticks readjust dynamically so that more of a range is visible as the range slider returns to a constant size.
3) The ticks are dynamically generated depending on the "zoom" level represented.
I am hoping that I can create a similar experience using an existing control rather than from scratch.
