Timeline View

  • 4 minutes to read

The Timeline view displays appointments as horizontal bars along the timescales. This view allows users to quickly review appointment information for multiple resources.

Set the SchedulerControl.ActiveViewIndex property to the corresponding view index in the SchedulerControl.Views collection to show the view. This collection stores all views defined in the scheduler.

<dxsch:SchedulerControl ActiveViewIndex="0">
    <dxsch:TimelineView 
        x:Name="timelineView"/>
        <!---->
</dxsch:SchedulerControl>
NOTE

The SchedulerControl has all views enabled out-of-the-box. If you declare any view in XAML or create views using the SchedulerControl's smart tag, only the explicitly declared views become available. You can specify any number of views with the same type and different settings.

WPFScheduler_TimelineView

The Timeline view is the TimelineView class in the Scheduler API. It inherits the ViewBase base class.

Updated Timeline View

v20.2 introduces an updated Timeline view. To enable this view, set the TimelineView.ViewMode property to Standard. Custom styles and templates defined for the previous view version are not compatible.

The updated Timeline view features the following enhancements over the previous version:

  • TimeScale is a new universal time scale that adapts to the current zoom level.

  • Per-pixel horizontal and vertical scrolling.

  • Resources with multiple appointments that occupy the same time slot can be expanded/collapsed.

  • Resource height adapts to uniformly fill the viewport.
