I am migrating MS Project Documents into Line of Business application into web pages. Which means everything MS Project can do, my client expect the telerik controls to do! I would like features as seen in https://www.officetimeline.com/plus Which means I can summarize the status of a project. Which means I can use the mouse wheel and the 'Ctrl' key to zoom in and out of a project. Initially this would be like changing from 'Day' view all the way thro to 'Year' view, but unlike pressing this buttons, I am still centered on in on that date much like in https://soundcloud.com/explore but its not music but a date on a timeline. So if SoundCloud was for Project timelines that would be good. This also have cross over for the Scheduler calender Timeline.
I am migrating MS Project Documents into Line of Business application into web pages. Which means everything MS Project can do, my client expect the telerik controls to do! What I require is 'Go to' Date, where by the radGantt display can scroll to that position (eg like jumping to a # location) This will allow the implementation of 'Go to 'Today' This will allow the implementation of 'Go to 'dd/mm/yy' Where the date in in the center of the page, with an optional line (you are here) indicator. See https://www.officetimeline.com/plus for ideas.
I am migrating Excel Documents into Line of Business application into web pages. Which means everything excel can do, my client expect the telerik controls to do! In your RadGantt controls, the Left hand side of the control is perceived to be a RadGrid this it is expected to have the same affordances of radGrid. Which means that I expect the <CommandItemSettings ShowAddNewRecordButton="false" /> to work. Which means I can apply all my learning of radGrid to the left hand side of radGantt.
I am migrating Excel Documents into Line of Business application into web pages. Which means everything excel can do, my client expect the telerik controls to do! On either a RadGrid or RadGantt I would like to be able to rotate the headings just like in Excel. An example is a heading like 'Days' but the actual value in that column is no bigger than 99. Another example if that the heading has a question, and the cell a check box.
I was trying out the RadGantt control. Noticed the following 1. There is no validation on the dependency - for example, if I have set the dependency to "Start After" parent task, then should it allow me to enter CompletionPercentage? does not make sense. 2. If I extend the end date of the predecessor, then there is no option to automatically update the dates of all successors. This means that I have to manually adjust all the subsequent dates. Doe not make sense. These were noticed on the demo application on the web. If these features exist, then please point me to the relevant demo.
We are missing the following navigation options (like the ones the RadScheduler has): go to the previous, next period (day/week/month) or go to a specific date. Also, the views should show only the specified period (so the week view should show the current week by default). Now, if we have a task that started last year, even the day view shows several months of data.
If the RadGantt custom column could be a type of "Rich Text", then we could insert any html including link buttons (e.g. edit task ), Icons ( e.g. tick for task complete), or rich text in red, green or whatever. We would also need the data_bind event available to populate the custom field. :)
RadGantt needs to considering "working time" when plotting. You have workDayStart, workDayEnd, workWeekStart, and workWeekEnd which appears at this point to only control UI. My suggestion is as follows: let's say I have a task that is 8 hours long in duration(does not appear that I can set the duration on a task, its readonly), I set the task StartTime to be Friday 1PM and EndTime to be Friday 9PM, hence 8 hour duration, I would expect the control to consume its own configuration(defined by params above) and know that from 5PM - 9PM are not working hours, nor is Sat or Sun and to paint the additional hours on Monday from 8AM - 12PM. This is how MSProject and other gantt controls operate. Essentially I don't want to give you an EndTime, I should be able to simply set the StartTime and provide a duration and you would consume the working hours configuration and figure out the EndTime to plot.
It'd be nice to have templatecolumns in the column definitions. Also that bound columns bounds to different properties other than expected, ie: Title, ID, etc. So for example I could implement different behaviors based on a gantt diagram. <telerik:GanttBoundColumn AllowEdit="true" UniqueName="colSelected" DataField="Selected" AllowSorting="false" DataType="Boolean"> </telerik:GanttBoundColumn> This should render a checkbox for example, but DataType="Boolean" its probably thought for Summary field. I know this control is still on beta, but at least task selection would be nice to have. Also I would like this control to be more performance optimized , In the project I want to implement it I need to draw quite a few tasks. Thanks
Add a vertical line that indicates the current date in the timeline. You will also have to option to scroll to the current date when the control is first loaded, or changing views.
Regarding RadGanttView (couldn't find it in the List) Seems odd to me that you cannot override the default double click behaviour. (in my case I would like to open a radWindow instead of entering Cell Edit Mode). Couldn't find any event for it either client or server side. This would be very useful if think, so I thought I try and request it :) Both Task Click (SelectionChanged) and task double click should be accessible. Talking about the grid part of the control.(left side)
