Database load?

Dec 16, 2009 at 10:36 PM

Really cool control - very intuitive and powerful.  I was going to try to load some information from a database for a personal time tracker stuff - what do you think the easiest way to do this would be? 

Would you just update LoadEventDocument() to fill m_events with created objects from a SQL call instead of the XML doc?

Thanks from all of us to you for making an effort for the community!

Getting data from sql is not supported directly now. You can though create xml from sql and then call ClearEvents and ResetEvents.

ResetEvents() just builds a collection of TimeLineEvent objects, yeah?  Seems like that could build from anything, XML, sql using the same table structure or whatever.  Am I oversimplifying the problem?  Are there javascript operations on that XML file or something?

Yes, ResetEvents builds and displays collection of events, and it accepts xml only (but you can, again, create this xml from whatever you want).

No, ResetEvents just gets events from xml and displays them.

Just want to share some information about loading from a database.

I have a WCF-service delivering data to me...
So this is the return of the wcf-data-call:

void con_GetTimeLineCompleted(object sender, sqlMon.GetTimeLineCompletedEventArgs e)
sqlMessage[] res = e.Result;

  XElement _events = new XElement("data",
   from x in res
   orderby x.Run_Date 
   select new XElement("event",
       new XAttribute("title", x.Job_Name),
       new XAttribute("start", x.Run_Time),
       new XAttribute("end", x.End_Time),
       new XAttribute("isDuration", true),
       new XAttribute("color", x.Job_StatusColor),
