Timeline View

  • 2 minutes to read
NOTE

You are viewing documentation for the legacy WPF Scheduler control. If you're starting a new project, we strongly recommend that you use a new control declared in the DevExpress.Xpf.Scheduling namespace. If you decide to upgrade an existing project in order to switch to the updated scheduler control, see the Migration Guidelines document.

This document introduces the Timeline view of the Scheduler Control.

The Timeline View displays appointments as horizontal bars along the timescales, and provides end-users with a clearer overview for scheduling purposes. This view's options are represented via the TimelineView object, which is accessed via the SchedulerControl.TimelineView property. The image below demonstrates the SchedulerControl, with its SchedulerControl.ActiveViewType property set to Timeline.

DXScheduler_TimelineView

When a schedule have multiple resources, set the SchedulerViewBase.GroupType to SchedulerGroupType.Resource to arrange resources with associated appointments vertically. In the following picture the Resource.ImageBytes property is the source of images displayed in Resource Headers.
