I there any way or hack to add a slider below a graph like this to allow the user to view data points at various points in time?
Assume this graph is current conditions. Slider below would allow you to view a point in time, in the past, dynamically.
Are you looking for something like this? In case you are looking for something else, could you please send us a pictorial representation of the requirements so that we can understand it better and help you out.
Using the picture in my original post (existing graph), assume that the X-axis is not time but rather, fixed locations/data points.
I want to add time as a slider (jquery-ui) below the graph and then allow the user to go from now, to 3 hours ago, to yesterday, to now, etc. to view the n number of data points.
Does that make sense?
