What about being able to see in a table all important events in a family, by date; for example
  • 11.04.1955: Charle's birth
  • 08.09.1960: Elisabeth's marriage
  • 01.01.1961: Sandy and Raoul's separation
  • etc...

and being able to insert in this table any other important event, even if not defined by genographic elements or other tables or fields, such as:

- 3.11.1979: Marcs graduation

- 5.12.1980: Thomas' first's steps

etc...

Having a timeline is a feature on our "todo" list.  We have not scheduled this task yet.

I bet this can be handled in a report.

Anyone want to take a stab at it?

Our solution is having a dialog/tab the occupations listing all the events.  GenoPro would use a 'GenoMap' (or perhaps TimeMap) to draw a timeline of selected events.

Of course, you are welcome to create a timeline with the report generator.  I am in awe what people have done using the report generator (Interactive Table of Contents, HTML Ancestor TreeSVG Rendering, Google Geomapping, and more).

Have also looked into the creation and use of timeline reports and tried some of those available in the market, some as trial software, just to see whether it fits into the set up of the Genopro report.
Even though some look very fancy and impressive, I realized that there is no need for such individual fancy report, because most of the pictures are already visible in the report and also the dates of most of the events (education, occupation, and others in the future).
I think a straight forward timeline with DoB, DoD and other events (selectable via config.xml or custom tags like google map), sorted by genomap and listed as such, like the SVG graphic, would be sufficient. May be with historical events attached (visible Yes/No). A xml driven software like shown in http://simile.mit.edu/timeline/ may inspire some to try their hands on this.

The AJAX callback is really cool.

Ok, I'm inspired and its looks quite straight-forward to use. So give me a day or so and I'll see what I can come up with.....

Thanks Ron,
have included on my page already a sample (#3), although with limited data from another xml file. Have used the modified google map page you once gave me for the media files.

As always, scripting web pages turns out to be a bit harder than first appearances. The documentation on the http://simile.mit.edu/timeline/ site is a little sparse for my old grey cells. Anyway I now have a result.

One problem was how to set the scale of the timeline. I have simply used a crude estimate of the average density of events per year but occasionally this gives problems as by nature most family tree events are bunched. The timeline widget does allow for 'hot zones' where the scale can be expanded but I've left trying to handle that for another day. For the time being you may need to maximise the timeline 'popup' frame to see all events as the widget does not have a vertical scroll capability.

The attached zip file timeline_2.0.0.3b.zip contains amendments for the English Narrative Report version 2.0.0.3 to add the timeline feature. Births, Deaths and Marriages/Divorce are the only events handled at present. So generate a custom skin are overwrite files with those from the zip file.

I have produced a sample from the ubiquitous Harry Potter data (hint: click the timeline button icon in the header frame) here

Update: new timeline icons added to zip file.
Update: removed attachment - see later post

Thanks a lot for your quick work, ron. Have tried (after having downloaded also the icons from the Harry Potter page) and have no complains. Will look into it more closely later, but what I can see is that it is not suitable for genomaps with too many people. The timeline gets too crowded. A good reason more to split big trees into smaller ones.
