share datasource with timeline

Hello,

 

I am implementing the new timeline widget.

Looks very nice, but I use this in combination of a shared datasource. (I use it in a grid and a timeline)

However, the 'autoBind:false' option does not work in the timeline widget, so the datasource is read twice.

How can I prevent that?

See a dojo example with 2 timelines and the same datasource. Also here the datasource is read twice.

Regards ,

Richard

Hey folks!

Happy to say that the ability to work with a shared DataSource with the R1 2020 release of Kendo UI! Check it out in action right here. I'll go ahead and mark this item as completed!

Hello, Richard,

When it comes to bugs, we do try to handle the new ones in the service packs. However, this is a Feature Request. Feature requests are dealt with according to their popularity and we cannot predict how quickly an item would gain popularity.

Can you please describe in a little more detail how much of an impact this functionality would have in your use case?

I have already brought it to the attention of the team but I may have missed a point so I would really appreciate hearing some more information.

Kind Regards,

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the feedback. I will use the databound workaround.

Yes, you may make it publically visible. I assume it will be fixed in the next release.

Regards,

Richard

Hi, Richard,

You are correct that the new Kendo UI Timeline is missing this functionality.

I believe that the request is absolutely valid and I would like to make it publically visible so people can upvote it. Would you mind that?

Meanwhile, you can use some event handler - for instance the dataBound handler of one timeline and set the data as the new data source of the the other, e.g:

https://dojo.telerik.com/@bubblemaster/eViZEREc

dataBound: function(e){                
     $("#timeline2").data("kendoTimeline").setDataSource(this.dataSource.data().toJSON());
}

Look forward to hearing back from you.
