Onto your questions:
1. -- Currently, TimeBar does not expose style properties for changing the slider and thumbs style. I forwarded your post to our developers so that they will consider it for our future releases. However, you can hide the slider by getting it in code behind via the extension method ChildrenOfType<RadSlider>()
, part of the UIElementExtensions Class
. In order to use this method, you need to include namespace reference to Telerik.Windows.Controls
. The border thickness of the SelectionThumb can be changed by re-templating the SelectionThumb. You can find an example how to achieve this customizations in the project attached.
-- Presently, it is not possible to change the font size of the items. However, we are going to provide this ability in the upcoming official release, which will be approximately at the mid of July.
2. -- Could you, please, elaborate a bit more on this issue, as we are unable to reproduce such a behavior in our local tests. Also, make sure that you are using binaries from the latest official release (version 2011.1.419).
3. -- In terms of data visualization, the RadSparkline control is comparable to RadChart, however the spark lines do not utilize this many visual indicators, as well as x or y axis or multiple axes. Basically, RadTimeBar is a content control and can host other controls. Thus, in order to display YAxis values, you can use RadChart
instead of RadSparkline. For additional information on RadChart and RadSparkline, please refer to the following online resources:
I hope that this information helps.
