Guys,

I know your intentions are good, so I am expecting a lot !! I just hate to say but it seems to me that you could have hit the ground running a little better with this control GIVEN that you all have been getting great feedback on forums from your other platforms that have a Gantt control (notably Siliverlight). So, what you all have learned with that should have been the basis for feature release 1, not starting at the beginning, which is where we seem to be at.

Nevertheless, we are where we are and I need some things that I think are REASONABLE requests and that others may need as well:

1) The option  to use the TimeLine side of the control without the treecontrol and replace it with the Grid control for performing SIMPLE graphical display of time-phased data. Let me create a splitter and put the Grid on the left, and the Gantt timeline on the right. Let me do that. Give me some simple hooks for letting me get some of my grid data over to the TimeLine and give me enough so that my rows match up and I can synch the scrolling of the right and left sides. I would not need a sophisticated interface for inserting tasks or interactive gantt bars that stretch the timeline and automatically update the start times/end times. Just a simple interface for graphically displaying time-phased data from the Grid.

2) Read your forums for the Sliverlight Gantt and immediately begin prioritizing all of the most requested features from that forum because many of those requests are going to be the same ones from this group as far as business functionality goes.

Thanks

Hi Robert,

Thank you for your feedback

Straight to the points:

1) We are not planning to provide functionality to directly replace the TreeList part of the control with a RadGrid, but rather ease the binding mechanism so the RadGantt could bind to arbitrary data containing at least start and end data for a task. This would allow binding both the RadGantt and RadGrid to one and the same data, where the editing could be done in the Grid and the antt would only display the task in a timeline fashion. Currently the TreeList could be hidden by setting the ListWidth property to "0px" and applying the following CSS in order to hide the splitter:
.rgtSplitbar {
   width: 0px !important;
   border: 0px !important;
}

2) We are constantly gathering feedback and evaluating the competitors as well as our controls. Thank you for the suggestion.

Another feature to consider would be adding trendlines to the calendar section.
