know of any timeline components? (plugins, flash. etc) i.e. plotting time (horizontally) versus resources/projects vertically

Hi,

I want to create a Rails application that summarises resource leave & project phases. I basically want time horizontally (choose day-by-day, week-by-week, etc resolution), and projects/resources horizontally. I want all phase of a project to be on the same horizontal row (i.e. not a Gantt chart which typically has a row per task).

Is there any existing HTML, Rails, Flash (with xml integration) components someone knows of that can do this nicely? i.e. similar to how www.fusioncharts.com works for graphs.

Thanks

here’s a link to a rough idea of what I’m after (link to image) - http://www.webdeveloper.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=11381&d=1217589102

Haven't used it, but I was looking for something like that and this
one is tempting:

You’re looking to create a Gantt Chart.

You may be able to accomplish this using the Google Charts API and a horizontal stacked bar chart

Harold, this looks really promising. I’ll look into this.

Tim - I don’t want a Gantt chart as multiple tasks are typically on different rows. Also prefer not to need internet access to Google during development (i.e. network connectivity)
