    Hi ,

    I have some dates on the Grid part of the control and the timeline part on the right side contains some time frame values that are plotted .
    Now I need to be able to easily distinguish the dates may be by adding a border after a particular set of date values or may be by assigning some background to the rows with the same date value .

    I cannot use the background of the EventContainer as I am already using it for some other feature .(to distinquish a task across multiple dates)

    Attached image describes this .

    What I have done is , added a property in the GanttTask Itemsource .I have modified the control template of Border container and binding this property to the Background of the Border container .

    But  , the binding is not happening .
    Is there any way that this could be achieved or may be any workaround ?

    I am using the 2013 Q1 dlls .

    Thanks a lot....

    Hi Amo,

    Basically you need to combine two of our examples in our online repository / GanttView - the TasksWithDifferentColors and the Baseline example. TasksWithDifferentColors example demonstrates how to create tasks with different colors using custom tasks and properties and the Baseline example shows how to display additional containers in the Timeline section of the RadGanttView control. 

    I've prepared and attached a sample project which demonstrates this approach. Please note that you need to use our latest binaries for this project.

    Hope this helps.
