    Does anyone have any idea how I might show the current time in a timeline view?

    I'm not talking about the header. I have a client who wants to see a view of the day in timeline view with a marker showing the place in the day, like this.

    I know it can't be done out of the box, but I was wondering if anyone out there had any ideas about how it might be achieved.

    Hello Stuart,

    We thought of a possible workaround for this scenario by adding a new appointment that will show the current time. Here is the code that I used:

    <telerik:RadScheduler runat="server" ID="RadScheduler1" SelectedView="TimelineView"
            TimelineView-ShowInsertArea="false" GroupBy="Room" GroupingDirection="Vertical"
            OnAppointmentDataBound="RadScheduler1_AppointmentDataBound" EnableExactTimeRendering="true">
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
           if (!IsPostBack)
               Appointment app = new Appointment();
               app.Subject = "Test";
               app.Start = DateTime.Now;
               app.End = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(1);
       protected void RadScheduler1_AppointmentDataBound(object sender, SchedulerEventArgs e)
           if (e.Appointment.Subject=="Test")
               e.Appointment.Start = DateTime.Now;
               e.Appointment.End = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(1);
               e.Appointment.AllowDelete = false;
               e.Appointment.AllowEdit = false;
               e.Appointment.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red;
               e.Appointment.BorderColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red;
               Resource r = RadScheduler1.Resources.GetResourceByType("Room");

    Hope this will be helpful.
