    Our development team use your WPF controls, and we have a need to create a parent/child horizontal type grid with a timeline.  I've inserted two pictures to give you an idea of our requirement.  I've researched your example demos (Gantt, ScheduleView, Timeline, TimeBar) but could not find one that meets our exact needs.  Will your controls provide what we're looking for as described below without us having to write a custom control?

    The pictures show the parent object on the far left where its child objects are on the same row to the right.  The parent (one object per row) will scroll vertically, and the child (many objects per parent) will scroll horizontally on the same row as its parent within a timeline.  The timeline is anchored at the top of the form.  As the timeline scrolls horizontally, we want the child objects to scroll horizontally with the timeline.

    Picture #1:  This is our overall requirment.  You have the parent objects on the left which scroll vertically.  Each parent can have multiple child objects on the same row that should scroll horizontally when the timeline scrolls.

    Picture #2:  This represents one child object.  We will break a child object into segments with different colors.  While the picture shows each segment a different height, that is not one of our requirements.  We do require the ability to have the different color segments for a single child object.

    Hi John,

    We do not have exactly such kind of a control, but it seems from the screenshots that RadScheduleView can be customized to look in similar way.  First, you will have to add resources to the ScheduleView and group it by the defined ResourceType. Actually the parent objects will be the resources and the child objects will be the appointments.  I would suggest to use TimelineViewDefinition and customize the time ruler according to your needs. As to the appointments  - you could change their look by customizing the AppointmentStyleSelector.

    Also you could check the ScheduleView online examples at and if you have any issues/questions, let us know.

    All the best,
