ASP.NET AJAX Timeline Component
The new Timeline is a data bound component that displays a collection of chronological events with detailed data in an interactive and stylish manner.
You can scroll through the Timeline events and collapse/expand them. The events order can be vertical or horizontal, and you can customize them using templates. You can also control the format of the rendered date for the event. If you provide a list of actions, they will be rendered as links after the description and images.

The Timeline component can render events as horizontal or vertical lists.
By default, the Timeline is vertical, with events arranged on one side of the axis, but can also be configured to appear on alternating sides.

In the horizontal mode, the Timeline renders navigation buttons which the user can click and scroll through its periods. By selecting an event from the timeline, its details are revealed below the time axis.

Each event that is part of the Timeline control can be customized in terms of look and feel. You can add images, buttons, links or other content that is needed to best describe the event.
