Before diving into the integration process, ensure you have the following prerequisites set up:

Create a Power BI application

Follow these steps to create a Power BI app seamlessly: 

  1. First, install the Power BI Visuals Tools globally using the following command. This command ensures you have the tools to develop custom visuals within the Power BI.
    npm i -g powerbi-visuals-tools
  1. To ensure secure communication, install the SSL certificate using the following command. This step is crucial for establishing secure connections during development.
    pbiviz install-cert
  1. Then, use the following command to create your new custom visual project with the preferred project name.
    pbiviz new <ProjectName>
    This command initializes a new custom visual project within Power BI, allowing you to start building and customizing visuals such as Gantt Charts according to your requirements.

Integrating Syncfusion JavaScript Gantt Chart into Power BI

Follow these steps to seamlessly add the Syncfusion JavaScript Gantt Chart to the Power BI app:

  1. Ensure you have installed the Syncfusion Gantt package in your project. Use npm or yarn to install it.
    npm install @syncfusion/ej2-gantt --save
  1. In your visual.ts file, import the Gantt module and render the Gantt chart. For detailed guidance, refer to Syncfusion’s documentation.
    import { Gantt } from '@syncfusion/ej2-gantt';
    export class Visual implements IVisual {
        constructor(options: VisualConstructorOptions) {
            this.target = options.element;
            // Create a new div element.
            const ganttContainer: HTMLElement = document.createElement('div');
            ganttContainer.setAttribute('id', 'ganttContainer');
            // Render Gantt Chart.
            let gantt = new Gantt({
                dataSource: yourDataSource,
                taskFields: {
                    // Define task fields here
                // Other Gantt properties and configurations.
  1. Now, define your data source with the necessary fields required for the JavaScript Gantt Chart.
    let yourDataSource = [
        // Your data source here.
  1. Let’s customize the appearance and behavior of the Gantt Chart by configuring its properties.
    let gantt = new Gantt({
         // Other configurations...
         columns: [
                // Define Gantt columns here.
         labelSettings: {
                // Configure label settings here.
         // Other Gantt properties...
  1. Then, execute the following command to run the project.
    pbiviz start
  1. Now, test your visual in the Power BI service. Open a new or existing Power BI report (app.powerbi.com) and select the Developer Visual from the Visualizations pane.
    Refer to the following image.Select the Developer Visual from the Visualizations pane
