In-Cell Editing

The Gantt provides an option for editing individual cells in the TreeList pane.

Basic Concepts

The in-cell edit mode allows users to edit the value of each cell. Each time a cell is clicked or double-clicked, the respective event is emitted, and allows you to call a method that will open the cell in edit mode.

To implement in-cell editing use the following methods and events:

  1. When the end user clicks a TreeList cell, this triggers the cellClick event.
  2. The TaskClickEvent data includes the data item, associated with the clicked cell, the GanttComponent instance, and the original click event data.
  3. To put a cell in edit mode, call the Gantt editCell method and pass the data item, column identifier, and a FormGroup instance containing the respective editable fields.
  4. Handle the cellClose event handler to process the Gantt data accordingly. The CellCloseEvent data contains the GanttComponent instance, the TaskEditItem, and all properties of the TreeList CellCloseEvent. The event is preventable.

The following example demonstrates how to set up the in-cell editing mode of the Kendo UI Gantt for Angular using Reactive Forms.
