    GanttSeriesView,
    ISideBySideBarSeriesView,
    IBarSeriesView

Remarks

The SideBySideGanttSeriesView class provides the functionality of a series view for the side-by-side Gantt type within a chart control.

The SideBySideGanttSeriesView class inherits properties and methods from the base GanttSeriesView class which defines the common settings of Gantt series views.

Note that a particular view type can be defined for a series via its SeriesBase.View property.

For more information on series views of the side-by-side Gantt type please see the Side-by-Side Gantt Chart topic.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with two series of the SideBySideGanttSeriesView type, and add this chart to a form at runtime. Before proceeding with this example, first create a Windows Forms Application in Visual Studio, and include all necessary assemblies to the References list of your project.

Then, add the following code to the Form.Load event handler.

using System;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using DevExpress.XtraCharts;
// ...

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    // Create a new chart.
    ChartControl ganttChart = new ChartControl();

    // Create two Gantt series.
    Series series1 = new Series("Estimation", ViewType.SideBySideGantt);
    Series series2 = new Series("Implementation", ViewType.SideBySideGantt);

    // Specify the date-time value scale type,
    // because it is qualitative by default.
    series1.ValueScaleType = ScaleType.DateTime;
    series2.ValueScaleType = ScaleType.DateTime;

    // Add points to them.
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("Task 1", new DateTime[] { 
    new DateTime(2006, 8, 16), new DateTime(2006, 8, 31) }));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("Task 2", new DateTime[] { 
    new DateTime(2006, 8, 31), new DateTime(2006, 9, 15) }));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("Task 3", new DateTime[] { 
    new DateTime(2006, 9, 15), new DateTime(2006, 9, 30) }));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("Task 4", new DateTime[] { 
    new DateTime(2006, 9, 30), new DateTime(2006, 10, 15) }));

    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("Task 1", new DateTime[] { 
    new DateTime(2006, 8, 16), new DateTime(2006, 9, 5) }));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("Task 2", new DateTime[] { 
    new DateTime(2006, 9, 5), new DateTime(2006, 9, 22) }));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("Task 3", new DateTime[] { 
    new DateTime(2006, 9, 22), new DateTime(2006, 10, 10) }));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("Task 4", new DateTime[] { 
    new DateTime(2006, 10, 10), new DateTime(2006, 10, 23) }));

    // Add both series to the chart.
    ganttChart.Series.AddRange(new Series[] { series1, series2});

    // Access the view-type-specific options of the second series.
    SideBySideGanttSeriesView myView2 = (SideBySideGanttSeriesView)series2.View;

    myView2.MaxValueMarker.Visible = true;
    myView2.MaxValueMarker.Kind = MarkerKind.Star;
    myView2.MaxValueMarker.StarPointCount = 5;
    myView2.MaxValueMarker.Size = 10;

    myView2.MinValueMarker.Visible = true;
    myView2.MinValueMarker.Kind = MarkerKind.Circle;
    myView2.MinValueMarker.Size = 10;

    myView2.BarWidth = 0.5;

    // Customize the chart (if necessary).
    GanttDiagram myDiagram = (GanttDiagram)ganttChart.Diagram;

    myDiagram.AxisX.Title.Visible = true;
    myDiagram.AxisX.Title.Text = "Tasks";
    myDiagram.AxisY.Interlaced = true;
    myDiagram.AxisY.GridSpacing = 10;
    myDiagram.AxisY.Label.Angle = -30;
    myDiagram.AxisY.DateTimeOptions.Format = DateTimeFormat.MonthAndDay;

    // Customize the legend (if necessary).
    ganttChart.Legend.AlignmentHorizontal = LegendAlignmentHorizontal.Right;
    ganttChart.Legend.AlignmentVertical = LegendAlignmentVertical.TopOutside;
    ganttChart.Legend.Direction = LegendDirection.LeftToRight;

    // Add a constant line.
    ConstantLine deadline = new ConstantLine("Deadline", new DateTime(2006, 10, 15));
    deadline.ShowInLegend = false;
    deadline.Title.Alignment = ConstantLineTitleAlignment.Far;
    deadline.Color = Color.Red;
    myDiagram.AxisY.ConstantLines.Add(deadline);

    // Add a title to the chart (if necessary).
    ganttChart.Titles.Add(new ChartTitle());
    ganttChart.Titles[0].Text = "A Side-by-Side Gantt Chart";

    // Add the chart to the form.
    ganttChart.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
    this.Controls.Add(ganttChart);
}
