Create a TimeBar control in Code-behind

RadTimeBar supports lightweight batch initialization through the ISupportInitialize interface. You can use the methods of this interface in code behind to create and initialize a time bar before adding it in the visual tree. Here is an example:

  1. Create RadAreaSparkLine to use it as Content for the TimeBar control:

    You can use RadChart, RadSparkline or any other custom control as Content for the RadTimeBar.

        InitializeComponent(); 
        RadAreaSparkline sparkline = new RadAreaSparkline(); 
        Random r = new Random(); 
        List<int> data = new List<int>(); 
        for (DateTime currentDate = DateTime.Today; currentDate < DateTime.Today.AddDays(100); 
           currentDate = currentDate.AddDays(1)) 
           { 
             data.Add(r.Next(0, 60)); 
           } 
        sparkline.ItemsSource = data; 
    
        InitializeComponent() 
     
        Dim sparkline As New RadAreaSparkline() 
     
        Dim r As New Random() 
     
        Dim data As New List(Of Integer)() 
     
        Dim currentDate As Date = Date.Today 
        Do While currentDate < Date.Today.AddDays(100) 
     
          data.Add(r.Next(0, 60)) 
     
          currentDate = currentDate.AddDays(1) 
        Loop 
     
        sparkline.ItemsSource = data 
    
  2. Create new TimeBar and add the SparkLine as Content.

        RadTimeBar timebar = new RadTimeBar(); 
           timebar.BeginInit(); 
           timebar.Width = 950; 
           timebar.Height = 250; 
           timebar.PeriodStart = new DateTime(2010, 1, 1); 
           timebar.PeriodEnd = new DateTime(2012, 1, 1); 
           timebar.VisiblePeriodStart = new DateTime(2010, 2, 14); 
           timebar.VisiblePeriodEnd = new DateTime(2011, 6, 2); 
           timebar.SelectionStart = new DateTime(2010, 5, 14); 
           timebar.SelectionEnd = new DateTime(2010, 6, 14); 
           timebar.Intervals.Add(new MonthInterval()); 
           timebar.Intervals.Add(new WeekInterval()); 
           timebar.Intervals.Add(new DayInterval()); 
           timebar.EndInit(); 
           timebar.Content = sparkline; 
           this.Content = timebar; 
    
        Dim timebar As New RadTimeBar() 
           timebar.BeginInit() 
           timebar.Width = 950 
           timebar.Height = 250 
           timebar.PeriodStart = New Date(2010, 1, 1) 
           timebar.PeriodEnd = New Date(2012, 1, 1) 
           timebar.VisiblePeriodStart = New Date(2010, 2, 14) 
           timebar.VisiblePeriodEnd = New Date(2011, 6, 2) 
           timebar.SelectionStart = New Date(2010, 5, 14) 
           timebar.SelectionEnd = New Date(2010, 6, 14) 
           timebar.Intervals.Add(New MonthInterval()) 
           timebar.Intervals.Add(New WeekInterval()) 
           timebar.Intervals.Add(New DayInterval()) 
           timebar.EndInit() 
           timebar.Content = sparkline 
           Me.Content = timebar
