Hi,

I am trying to use Gantt Control to replace in my application where we already have similar control. Here are the few things that I would like to achieve using the Gantt Control

1. Add new column - like "assign to" where i could edit/assign the task in the popup using drop down (editing on double click)
2. Import the tasks from MS Project
3. Export to pdf/word/excel
4. Print

Please advise.

Thank you
Alan

Hi,

1. We will introduce full inbuilt support for resources and assigning them to tasks in the next official release of the Gantt control. Currently however it's not possible to define a custom column with a dropdown editor.

2. Import from MS Project XML files was added in the Q3 2014 release of the control, and is described in the following help article:
http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/gantt-import-from-ms-project.html

3. PDF Export will be included in the next official release of the control. Currently we don't have plans for adding support for word, excel and printing.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

I would like to know whether in the next release the Gantt control will allow add any customized column such as resource, actual/planned start, actual/end date and any other column type.

By the way can you please let me know when would be the next release with these features.

Thank you

Hi,

The next official release is scheduled for the second half of February, 2015, and will include full support for resources. Support for custom columns has already been added to the control, and you can see how you can leverage it in the following help article:
http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/gantt-custom-tasks-field.html

The Custom columns editor supports only String, Number, Date and Boolean types.

HI can you please tell is there any option to add our own column  like assigned to. I have generated the new node in xml and added a new column in aspx but it is not viewing correctly it shows object object instead of column data and not showing Header column Name.
Please reply soon.
Thanks

Hi,

In my previous reply I pointed to the help article which explains in detail how you can add a custom column to the gantt control, as well as the supported formats for these custom fields (String, Number, Date and Boolean).

If you are having difficulties with your particular implementation, please open a support ticket with your sample project attached, so that we can take a closer look.

Hi Alan,

1. are you planning to have Dropdown editors for the custom columns
No the dropdowns will not be supported by the custom columns. They will be part of the "Resources".

2. Can I have images to show the color/ status of the task which should be editable
This will be also possible with the Resources.

3. Can I and or User change the color of the gantt on every task based on the status/ based on other business rules 
For the moment this can be done only on the client with javascript.

4. What are the gantt control features you are planning on for the next release.
With the upcoming version the only one feature that will be added is "Resources". Here is the Roadmap.

Gantt's resources will be similar to the RadScheduler's Resources:
http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/scheduler/examples/resources/defaultcs.aspx
http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/scheduler-working-with-resources.html

I hope that I managed to answer all your questions.
