    I have quite a few questions re the Gantt control.  Apologies for grouping into one post but I don't want to create a ton of individual messages.

    1) The Add Task button.  I have hidden the bottom command bar with the style below, is this the best current way to hide it and in the future could the command bars be toggled via a tag.
    .rgtToolbar.rgtFooter { display:none !important; }

    2) Export to PDF.  When exporting the Gantt chart the buttons are included as if it was a screen shot.  Is there a way to stop that?  Maybe disable the button before PDF generation and re-enable afterwards.

    3) Ajax.  I use a custom icon for teh Ajax control.  Works fine on normal controls but the Gantt control seems to revert back to the skin based CSS.  I've looked at the source and nothing stands out as being the reason for the issue.  Any suggestions?

    div.RadAjax_Black .raDiv { background-image: url(/Images/loading.gif); }

    4) Task colours.  With the current release what is the best way to assign custom colours to individual tasks?

    5) Custom fields.  I have seen an article that discusses addition of fields using a custom provider.  Does that approach end up adding the custom field to the admin popup form?  The article that I am referring to is here:

    Again apologies for grouping the queries.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Hi Jon,

    1). For the command bar you can use



    2).  Yes try to hide the elements with css/javascript before the exporting.

    3).  Use RadAjaxLoadingPanel and change the progress indicator icon

    4).  You can create a popup window or you can try to use Gantt Resources, depends on your scenario.

    Hi Hristo

    Thanks for that.  I'll give the alternate toolbar method a try.

    Re question 2, please could you give some example code for this.  At the moment the documents seem to only give information about client events not objects or methods.

    No luck with the loading panel.  I have tried the examples on that page but on this the custom loading panel is always overridden, this appears when pressing the Add New task button.  Very odd.

    I think that you missed my question 4 and answered #5 instead.  Question 4 related to colouring tasks.
