We are showing a that represents a customers budget weeks which can start (WK 1) on any day in the year and are also not always 52 WKs/12 months.

It appears a provider is not the correct approach as the weeks are not bindable, hence the delay to get them from a means the data is not available when the provider is calling its format and interval requests.

Is this achievable?

Thanks,
Maurice

Hello Maurice,

Thank you for your interest in RadTimeBar control.

I am not sure that I have fully understood your approach. Can you elaborate more on your final behavior? You can send me a sample picture of the final behavior or any other additional information which you think will be helpful.

In addition, you can take a look at the MVVM Support help article in our documentation. Also, you can consider implementing Custom Interval Types which could help you in your final behavior.

Hi Dinko,

The crux of the issue is I am trying to find the property (or properties) to bind to (I am using MVVM) for the week labels will update based on my data rather than being based on ISO Week Numbers. For example week 1 might start on March 23.

At the moment I cannot identify which property this is bound to so that once my week interval data (start date, stop date and week label) arrives from the web service the week numbers are updated accordingly.

I currently using a FormatterProvider on the WeekInterval but I need to have my week data available inside the provider to identify the week labels. I tried extending DependencyObject in the provider and binding to the data, but the are called before the data arrives, so when the  is executing in the provider my data is not available to work out what the label is for the given date.

 

Regards,

Maurice

Hi Maurice,

The first-week label depends on the PeriodStart property. I have created sample MVVM project in which I have bound the PeriodStart, PeriodEnd, VisiblePeriodStart, VisiblePeriodEnd. Also, I have created custom WeekFormatterProvider in which I have changed the label to be displayed as Week {number}. Can you take a look at this project and let me know if it works for you. Also, you can change the visible area by binding the VisiblePeriodStart and VisiblePeriodEnd properties. 

If this is not the case, can you elaborate more on your scenario using the attached project?

Hi Dinko,

Thanks for the follow-up, what you have is what I am currently doing.Due to tight deadlines, I have managed a workaround. If I get some time I will prepare an update your code to demonstrate what I was trying to achieve.

Regards,
Maurice
