      Description

      I have a use case for this plugin, in which I would like to show 2 (or 3) charts in the same with a unique scale.

      The example is the following:
      I developed a sonar plugin, which reads the "remaining hours" and "actual hours" for the project from bugzilla. I use the time line plugin to create a kind of "burndown chart"

      It would be now very nice if I could show them in the same chart, withe the SAME scale. This would visualize very nicely the project progress. Currently each of the two charts has its on scale, which makes the graph less useful for predicting the future.

      This "unique scal" might be usefull as well for other use cases. I checked the docu and the source code and if I understood correctly there are options for this. ("scaleType", "scaleColumns")

      An other alternative to improve the timeline for the "burndown chart use case" could be to have a way to show and "extend the graph into the future (by using an average)" , so it becomes visible at which moment in the future it will hit the "0-line". This could then maybe be done in a separate plugin "burn down plugin"

        Hi Carsten Behring,
        If you want to develop your own plugin, then why issue in timeline plugin? So, could you please clarify what you need by providing screenshot or mockup?

        My enhancement request would be to add a checkbox (or an other way to enable / disable) to class GwtTimeline.java, which allows to change the "ScaleType" to ScaleType.FIXED. This would then draw different lines in the same diagram with the same scale. This allows easier comparsion of grapgs in the case of comparing values such as "remaining hours", "estimated hours", "total estimated hours".
        It gives usefull information in project progress, but makes only sense if the three graphs have the same scale in the diagram. Please see attached screenshot and as well a patch, which implements this for my needs.

        Seems that patch was created not for latest revision, but I've applied it in r2885 with some modifications. Thanks for your contribution.
