Namespace: DevExpress.XtraScheduler

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraScheduler.v23.1.Core.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Scheduler.Core

WPF Controls TimelineView.GetBaseTimeScale()
ASP.NET Web Forms Controls TimelineView.GetBaseTimeScale()


This class provides the TimeScale.Enabled and TimeScale.Visible properties, which define the behavior of a particular time scale when calculating a Scheduler Control’s layout for the Timeline view.

You can inherit from this class to modify the Timeline View by implementing custom time scales. A custom scale allows you to specify arbitrary scale intervals, modify captions and hide certain time intervals.

For the comparitively simple task of creating a scale with a fixed interval, you can inherit from the TimeScaleFixedInterval class. For more complex tasks, use the TimeScale descendants and override key methods, as illustrated in the How to: Hide Certain Columns in the Timeline View document.
