Questions about Moderntimeline in moderncv \tldatelabelcventryn

Postby asdfgh » Fri Sep 15, 2017 10:47 pm

What is the unit of xxx?

\tldatelabelcventryn[east][cyan!60!black]{2016.xxx}{xxx}{Test}{Test}{}{}{}

Is it right, that the 1.1.2016 is 2016.0 and the 31.06.2016 is 2016.5 ? 2016.5 is the same than 2016.500?

Questions about Moderntimeline in moderncv \tldatelabelcventryn

Postby Stefan Kottwitz » Sat Sep 16, 2017 12:36 am

Thank you for the link to the cross-post! That makes it easy to follow possible already existing answers, great!

So, there is not really a unit. You can state a year, and then that timeline shows that year's position on the line like on a progress bar.

The code calculates a fraction by (#3-\tl@firstyear)/(\tl@lastyear-\tl@firstyear), where #3 is the year you provide, and multiplies the fraction with the whole progress bar width.

See this example, that makes it more clear:

\usepackage[firstyear=2007,lastyear=2017]{moderntimeline}
...
\makecvtitle
The time lines start at 2007 and end at 2017.
