I've tried TimeGlider. Michael is a great guy, and that tool will someday have it all together, but for now -- at least to me -- it's a soup sandwich. All over the place, and too little documentation. I've struggled with it for too long, and I have to stop now.
I've also looked at Vaadin Timeline (https://vaadin.com/add-ons/timeline
), and it looks promising but it's a Java thing. I need an ASP.NET compatible and customizable solution.
Also looked at Timeline JS (http://timeline.verite.co/
) and its cousin Timeline Portfolio (http://demo.tutorialzine.com/2012/04/timeline-portfolio/
I need this in a timeline tool:
o Can feed it data via an XML or JSON file or through a callback.
o Can display datapoints in series.
o Series can have different symbologies.
o Datapoints can have customizable tooltips and a Click() event that can be hooked.
o Timeline is zoomable in addition to being drag-scrollable.
I'd really like to find someone who's tried various Timeline tools and has a good one that's NOT listed above. This would be much preferable to someone who just runs a Google search and starts slinging results at me.
Going back to Google now. Would appreciate ideas if you've also been down this path before.
