We have a need to test our application for different days of the year, we are doing this by setting a 'fake' system DateTime. I'd like to display this on the gantt via the currentTimeMarker. Is there anyway to override the datetime that this line uses either in JS or c#?
This has one draw back, which is it does not have the built in functionality of moving down the scheduler as the time changes.
As far as I know, there is nothing that gives you control over their current time marker, and so I believe custom time markers will be necessary, if you need functionality of it moving down the scheduler, that will have to be a custom solution you implement.
(You could just have a timing function that goes off after so many seconds/minutes that just runs the function to calculate and place the marker to update it. Hmm, seems potentially easier than I thought originally).

Thank you, Tyler, for sharing your sample.
I have prepared a dojo sample which contains another approach for creating custom time markers: http://dojo.telerik.com/@jivanova/ugenod. Indeed, if you need to update the time marker position in a certain interval, you will need a timing function to change its position.
