I have been given a task to make a control for project that needs to function like a movie editor control. I need to be able to do the following:
  1. Add events to the timeline via drag and drop. Events being added will be of a specified type.
  2. Adjust the time that the event is ongoing for
  3. Detect when an event overlaps and move it to the next line where applicable
  4. Click on an event and open a editor
  5. Shade portions of the timeline to correspond to portions of a scenario. I would like for the user to be able to adjust the durations of the phase via click and drag.

My first thought was to use the gnatt control and adjust the axis and have each task be the type of event that the user can do.Unfortunately the gnatt chart does not support multiple items for a single task so that will not work. Are there any controls in the suite that could support most of this functionality?

Thanks!

Hi Pavel,

This looks like a great product and really hope that we will be able to use your tools for this effort. However it is not clear to me if the timeline control supports the following:
  1. Can a user create new events on the time line with the use of drag and drop?
  2. Can the user adjust the duration of the bars once they are added?
  3. Can you shade sections of the timeline? If the user could adjust these sections with dragging that would be great. 

From your demos and link it does not make any mention of the above can you please point us in the right direction if the control does support these features.

Thanks for the help!

Hello Josh,

It seems that we mislead you when offered you the RadTimeLine, because it will not fulfill all of your requirements. However I think that the RadScheduleView will cover almost everything from your scenario using its Timeline view definition.
1. Appointments can be dragged and dropped into the RadScheduleView. For an example please refer to our online examples, here is the link for Silverlight which will help you to find the correct example in WPF.
2. Appointments in RadScheduleView can be dragg and dropped and resized out of the box.
3. There is a built in logic for this too. You can test it on some of the online demos to test whether it fulfills your scenario.
4. There are built in dialogs into the RadScheduleView. You can customize the built in dialogs or create your own. You can read more about customizing dialogs here.
5. Certain portions of the timeline could be shaded, disabled, etc. This could be achieved by using special slots. However there is no built in functionality that will enable resizing the special slots with the mouse.

All the best,
