Re: [TV] Started developing a project in VB

selected channel. I am stuggeling to find a way to make a DigiGuide-esque
timeline which would be a much nicer way of displaying the information.

Has anybody got any ideas?

Hi, I dunno exactly what you meant by digiguide-esque but I've spent this morning doing some coding in response to your email.

I've attached the file to this message at its only about 3kb but if the file doesn't make it to the list then try:


This is just the timeline, it does not download data or decode XML, it is provided as is as a demo or starting point for you to develope further. Some dummy data is inserted into the map so that you have something to play with and the code is commented so it should be easy enough to rip appart and put back together how you like it.

This may or may not be what you were thinking of and you may find it is in need of some improvement, e.g. it doesn't allow you to add the option of clicking on a program in the timeline for more info as its drawn directly onto the form, the timebase is currently midnight to midnight and I'm not sure how it will react to the windows 'large fonts' setting (that has a habit of messing up stuff that relies on fonts being a certain size).

If anyone can use it please do, just pop me a credit in somewhere.
