Same flexibility (in regard to dynamic parameters) in the Timeline datasource as for a normal grid datasource.


I have tried to get the Timeline datasource to refresh when a datarow command in a grid is selected.

The gridrow has a patientid, and I would like to show a Timeline for the patient contact dates with the hospital.

The trouble is that the datasource for Timeline don't have the same functionality for filtering/parameters as the 'normal' datasource, and does not support .Data(..).

Example (not implemented in the Timeline datasource):

.Read(read => read.Action("GetSurgeryEvents", "TimeLine").Data("setTimeLineParam"))

I would suggest to access the Kendo UI DataSource instance associated with the Timeline widget and use the filter method to filter the data in the DataSource. It should trigger re-render of the timeline and show only the filtered items/events. 

To access the Kendo UI DataSource instance of a Kendo UI Timeline is:

  var ds = $("#timeline").data().kendoTimeline.dataSource;
   ds.filter(...filter expression goes here);
