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.
