View Full Version : GXT Timeline UI Component?

30 Dec 2011, 8:54 AM
I have a new application I'd like to make using GWT/GXT but ideally it would contain a graphical timeline display. I've attached a couple of screenshots. The basic idea is that each row represents some entity that has a start and stop date...it shows a colored bar from the start to stop date...the times are shown in the header in a hierarchical fashion. I didn't see a GXT component for this, how could this be done?

With only knowing the UI requirement you have shown here, this can easily be done with the GXT Grid component and some small changes. You would need to have a custom GridView

That's an interesting idea, how easy is it to make that custom colored UI graphic with optional text per row?

To just create the UI you have shown above i would calculate 30 minutes.

And than it depends how much interaction you require and how often you want to change/customize that code.

You can try the Gxt Scheduler.
