Work Time Rules

  • 6 min to read

The Gantt control allows you to specify work days, work hours, and holidays.

The Gantt stores its work time rules in the control’s WorkTimeRules collection. The following work time rules are available:

The following table lists common rule settings:

Property

Description

IsWorkDay

Specifies whether a day is a work day.

Recurrence

Provides a rule's recurrence settings. Each rule type provides an individual set of recurrence settings.

WorkTimeRanges

Provides settings for work time ranges.

Daily Rule

The Daily class contains settings for a daily recurrence pattern.

Property

Description

Start

Specifies the daily recurrence's start date.

End

Specifies the daily recurrence's end date.

OccurrenceCount

Specifies how many times a daily rule occurs.

Interval

Specifies the daily recurrence's interval.

Work time patterns:

  • A work day is from 8 AM to 5 PM with an hour break (for a specified month).

    Declaratively:

    <dx:ASPxGantt ID="Gantt" runat="server"...>
        ...
        <WorkTimeRules>
            <dx:DailyRule>
                <Recurrence Start="03/01/2019" End="03/31/2019" />

    In code:

    DailyRule dailyRule1 = new DailyRule();
    dailyRule1.Recurrence.Start = new DateTime(2019, 03, 01);

    });
    
    Gantt.WorkTimeRules.Add(dailyRule1);
    
  • Each third day is a work day with a work shift from 10 AM to 10 PM.
