Error: "Failed to load data xml from /TimelineData.ashx?Dataid=4123ea6c-3c1b-482c-b8f6-24a9c2fe7465&type=rss Not Found


I worked with the simile timeline a few years back and I am excited to see that it has moved into the .NET world. However, when I get it all set up and try doing the example on this site, I get an alert with this error:
"Failed to load data xml from /TimelineData.ashx?Dataid=4123ea6c-3c1b-482c-b8f6-24a9c2fe7465&type=rss
Not Found
It does load the timeline itself properly, but it doesn't load any dates from my codebehind or rss feed from the example. However, the test project worked as expected when I downloaded the latest source code. I didn't notice a file with the name TimelineData.ashx anywhere in the latest source code, and yet it ran fine. If I copy the cc1:Timeline directly from the Default.aspx file in the TimelineTest project, I get the same results, the above popup dialog error. How can I get this up and running?

I got it to work. Alittle more detail than Alan gives.
Set Web.config to the following
<add verb="GET" path="TimelineData.ashx" type="TimelineNet.TimelineAjaxHandler, TimelineNet" />

Then add item on aspx page as such
<cc1:Timeline ID="Timeline1" JSName="t1" Height="200" Width="100%" runat="server" />

and it will allow you to add items to the timeline.
