accept any date range of data and to be able to display the data without the
need for horizontal scrolling. The main advantage of this component is

manipulation is performed with it.
Projects or tasks are displayed as horizontal bars with a vertical green bar
indicating the start date and a red bar indicating the end date. The dates
are displayed to avoid confusion. The current date is displayed down the
length of the datawindow. The horizontal bar color as well as the row
background color can be varied to indicate status of the task.
