Gantt

  • 2 minutes to read

The Gantt (GanttExtension) visualizes the task flow.

DevExpress ASP.NET MVC Gantt extension

Features

  • Data-Bound Mode

    You should bind the Gantt to a data model that provides data for tasks. The Gantt supports standard data source types including SqlDataSource, ObjectDataSource, XmlDataSource, AccessDataSource, and SiteMapDataSource.

    See demo

  • Edit Tasks

    The Gantt supports the following edit operations:

    • Resize and modify tasks.

    • Modify resources.

    • Add and remove dependencies between tasks and assignments.

    • Edit cell values within the Task List region. The control saves changes on the server and updates the Gantt chart when cell values change.

    The Gantt stores changes made by end users and allows you to roll back the last change when necessary.

    See demo

  • Column Types

    You can add columns (Columns) to the Task List to display display different data types.

    See demo

  • Scale Tasks

    Use the ViewType property or SetViewType(viewType) method to switch between display types: Ten Minutes, Thirty Minutes, Hours, Days, Weeks, and Months. It allows you to change date intervals on a timescale. Hold the CTRL key and rotate your mouse's scroll wheel to zoom.

    See demo

  • Custom Work Time

    You can specify the work time, workdays, and holidays.

    See demo

  • Task Title Position

    The control supports the following task title display types (TaskTitlePosition): hidden, within a task, and next to a task.

    See demo

  • Validation

    You can recalculate the duration and progress of parent tasks (EnableDependencyValidation), and validate relationships between all tasks (AutoUpdateParentTasks), when a task is modified.

    See demo

  • Strip Lines

    Use strip lines (StripLine) to highlight specific times (or time intervals) in the Gantt chart.

    See demo

  • Toolbar

    The toolbar (Visible) can display frequently used commands.

    See demo

Add a Gantt to a View

Use the Gantt(GanttSettings) helper method to add the Gantt (GanttExtension) extension to a view. The Gantt(GanttSettings) method's parameter provides access to the Gantt's settings (GanttSettings).

View code (ASPX):

@Html.DevExpress().Gantt(settings => {
    settings.Name = "gantt";
    settings.SettingsGanttView.ViewType = GanttViewType.Weeks;

    settings.Mappings.Task.Key = "ID";
    settings.Mappings.Task.ParentKey = "ParentID";
    //...

    settings.SettingsTaskList.Columns.Add(
        new GanttTextColumn() { 
            FieldName = "Subject", 
            Caption = "Title", 
            Width = Unit.Pixel(360) 
        }
    );
    //...
}).Bind(GanttDataProvider.Tasks, GanttDataProvider.Dependencies, GanttDataProvider.Resources, GanttDataProvider.ResourceAssignments).Render()

View code (Razor):

@Html.DevExpress().Gantt(settings => {
    settings.Name = "gantt";
    settings.SettingsGanttView.ViewType = GanttViewType.Weeks;

    settings.Mappings.Task.Key = "ID";
    settings.Mappings.Task.ParentKey = "ParentID";
    //...

    settings.SettingsTaskList.Columns.Add(
        new GanttTextColumn() { 
            FieldName = "Subject", 
            Caption = "Title", 
            Width = Unit.Pixel(360) 
        }
    );
    //...
}).Bind(GanttDataProvider.Tasks, GanttDataProvider.Dependencies, GanttDataProvider.Resources, GanttDataProvider.ResourceAssignments).GetHtml()
NOTE

The Partial View should contain only the extension's code.
