Firstly, I'll describe our requirement.
Our system is based around Task management. Our customers maintain task data which has several dates involved. Start dates, estimated completion dates, deadline dates etc. We think this control is ideal for displaying this kind of data. But, what we need
to display is live data, and our configuration experts need to be able to incorporate this control in to their user interface configuration using Xaml. So, what we need to be able to do is load the Task data from the database in to a Silverlight resource and
then have the control bind to those records. We need to be able to configure which date columns the control binds to.
Would I be right in saying that the control does not currently do this? Would I be right in saying that in order to display Task data, we would have to export our task data to Xml, and format the data in to a set of events in the same way the Monet example
If my understanding is correct, are there any plans to allow the control to bind to a collection of objects and to be able to specify which columns to bind on?
If not, is there a way for the control to get at live Xml data? One option for us is to create an IValueConverter which converts a collection of our data in to an Xml string (formatted like the Monet example). The control could then bind to that string in
the same way that it reads an Xml document from a Url.
Any thoughts on this?
