TimelineMultiDayView is not exported

Hello,

 

we have the need, to implement custom timeline views for the scheduler which shows a month and quarter timeline view.

This is currently not possible because the TimelineViewModule is not exporting the TimelineMultiDayViewComponent.

We request, to add this component to the exports and provide an updated dev version of the scheduler published to npm so that we can continue soon.

 

Thank you!

Best regards

Julian Hochstetter

Hi Julian,

Exposing the TimelineMultiDayViewComponent as is, wouldn't be a consistent implementation according to our workflow. Instead, we need to create a component that wraps this one and provides options for using it. Once released, it will be a component similar to any other View component such as the DayViewComponentMultiDayViewComponent etc.

Indeed, currently using the TimelineMultiDayViewComponent as demonstrated by you is possible, but at the moment it isn't a supported built-in functionality. Thus, it is up to the developer to decide whether a custom implementation should be used or wait for the release of the component within an official version of the Scheduler.

Hello,

 

we've tested the exporting of the existing TimelineMultiDayViewComponent by only export that existing component in the TimelineViewModule in the node_modules folder and it is working as expected, so we cannot confirm that not usable externally. What are the arguments, that the component cannot be used externally?

That hack enabled us, to use the following scheduler functionalities, which we think are very useful:

  • Timeline 3 days view beside 1 day, week and month view
  • Timeline week view with start on the selected date and not on 1st day of the week (sunday, monday)
  • Timeline month view with start on the selected data and not on the 1st day of the month
  • Timeline quarter view

From our point of view, the TimelineMultiDayViewComponent is ready to be exported as we implemented with success the mentioned views.

Your suggestion, to make the TimelineMultiDayViewComponent public is just as simple to export it in the module. If you want to make some API later private/protected, you can do this but until then a updated DEV version would help a lot!

 

Thank you for consider the request one more time!

 

Regards

Julian

Hi Julian,

Here is a follow up for this case.

The TimelineMultiDayViewComponent is used for internal purposes and isn't exported by the TimelineViewModule on purpose. Even if it was exported as is, it wouldn't be able to be used externally. Instead, what could be done from our side is to create a public TimelineMultiDayViewComponent, exposed by the API of the Scheduler, that would allow to be used externally. However, at the moment the development of such component isn't a part of our immediate plans.

That is why, I converted this ticket to be a public feature request item:

https://feedback.telerik.com/kendo-angular-ui/1441098-timelinemultidayview-is-not-exported

that will allow us to track the demand for it and help us to prioritize our plans for any future updates of Kendo UI for Angular. Indeed, thank you for the provided feedback.

Feel free to open another private support ticket in case any further information or assistance is required from our side about the Kendo UI for Angular Scheduler component.
