Timeline charts represent events in chronological order.
The exact timeline chart implementation steps depend on the data source. Below are general recommendations on how to create a timeline chart.
Choose a series type
Each event is represented by its name and start/end dates. In this case, the series type should have points with one argument and two values, for example, the Range Bar.
Bind the series to data
You can bind the series to data directly or use a series template (depending on the data source). These approaches and their differences are described in the Bind Series to Data article. In this demo, we use a series template.
Line up bars
Specify the barOverlapGroup to arrange bars in a line that displays a combined timeline.
Rotate the chart
A range bar chart's bars are vertical. To make them horizontal, set the rotated property to true.
Sort the events chronologically
Arguments maintain objects' order in the data source. If this order is not chronological, use the axis' categories array to specify the order.
