Along with other main features like standard resources and resource grouping, the Q3 2009 release brought an additional view to the present ones (Day, Week and Month) – Timeline. Briefly said, it displays a certain number of consecutive time slots and like all other views, the Timeline view is configurable in almost the same way. Here is how it looks like by default:




… where each time slot is 1 day long (i.e. TimeSlotLength of the TimelineViewDefinition is equal to one day) and the date in each header is displayed in a “d-M-yyyy” format.

Let’s tweak a bit some of the settings related to the Timeline view and add some resources:


<telerik:RadScheduler Grid.Row="0" x:Name="scheduler" TimelineHeaderFormat="{}{0:H:mm tt}" GroupBy="Person" >
<telerik:TimelineViewDefinition DayStartTime="08:00:00" DayEndTime="19:00:00" TimeSlotLength="1:0:0" VisibleDays="1" />

<telerik:ResourceType Name="Person" AllowMultipleSelection="True" >
<telerik:Resource ResourceName="Rosi" />
telerik:Resource ResourceName="Toti" />
<telerik:ResourceStyleMapping ResourceType="Person" ResourceName="Rosi" ResourceBrush="LightPink" /> 
telerik:ResourceStyleMapping ResourceType="Person" ResourceName="Toti" ResourceBrush="LightBlue" /> 




As you see setting the DayStartTime and DayEndTime properties allow us to show only working hours and thus concentrating on what is important.


Hope this will be of use!
