Q1 2011 has just been released and with it comes for the first time the RadTimeBar. Time Bar is a time bound DataVisualization control whose main purpose is to allow lightweight scrolling, navigation, and selection through large periods of time. To ease visualization the timebar can divide the displayed timespan in predefined periods like years, quarters, months, weeks, days, etc. While showing periods of time divided in weeks can be fun, it becomes really useful when combined with another great product that allows quick data visualization – the RadSparklines.
In addition to visualizing data, the RadTimeBar control allows you to select a certain period of time and visualize this selection in greater detail in a chart, grid or even a complex business dashboard. One such impelementation is demonstrated below:
This is just a glimpse of the potential and versatility of RadTimeBar. To learn more about the control, you can browse our online demos, download a free trial and start building amazing applications using the control's intuitive API. We have planned a lot new features for the near future so stay tuned for updates! Please don’t be shy and tell us what you think of our newest data visualization control.
