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
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)
I have two dates for a Task[Eg: Plan Dates & Actual Dates]. I want to show both plan and actual dates in same row, both with different colors. Below I have attached an image for reference. To show both Planned and Actual dates(if any) for a particular single task on the same row with different colors for both.
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.
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.
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 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.
Similar to what we have in other controls, when there is are no records, we should have a specific template where we can show an image or some text that shows that the Gantt chart could not be displayed since there is no data. Attached is a sample implementation which can be used as a temporary workaround. To run the project, place the .NET 4.5 version of the Telerik.Web.UI.dll in the bin folder of the project.
There is a need to add custom buttons to the button strip of RadGantt. The buttons for "Day | Week | Month" view appears on the top right of the RadGantt. The "Export to Pdf" button appears on the top left corner. I would like to add new buttons next to the "Export to Pdf" button. I would suggest taking this as a feature request. There are many scenarios where we need to have custom buttons in the toolbar of the RadGantt. Let the priority be decided by public opinion.
Allow the implementation of Custom views or extending the available ones similar to the Kendo UI Gantt - https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/controls/scheduling/gantt/how-to/creating-custom-view
Allow setting a client template for the task's tooltip. Workaround: https://www.telerik.com/support/code-library/custom-task-tooltip
Integrate validation of unique names that are being assigned through the UniqueName property of the GanttBoundColumn class to prevent the same assigned two times. E.g. RadGantt myGantt = new RadGantt(); GanttBoundColumn boundColumn = new GanttBoundColumn(); boundColumn.UniqueName = "Unique"; myGantt.Columns.Add(boundColumn); GanttBoundColumn boundColumn2 = new GanttBoundColumn(); boundColumn.UniqueName = "Unique"; // this should be validated myGantt.Columns.Add(boundColumn2);
