Event Templates

RadTimeline uses Kendo UI Templates to provide full control over the way the events data is rendered, allowing you to customize customize them to your needs instead of using the default card.

The following example demonstrates how to customize the default EventTemplate of the Timeline. To render more than one image, use custom fields from your data source that will not be recognized by the default template. The classes and HTML structure in this example, except for the custom field, mimic the default card template.

You can also define custom properties, which will be later accessible through the data.attributes object in the template (e.g. the Friends property in the sample below).
