Getting Started

The following steps illustrate how to create the Gantt control for JavaScript.

Gantt Creation

1.     Create an HTML file and add the following template to the HTML file.

<title>Getting Started with Gantt Control for JavaScript</title>
<!-- Style sheet for default theme(flat azure). -->
<link href=" " rel="stylesheet" />
<script src=""></script>
script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>

2.   Add a Div element within the Body element of the HTML file as follows. 


3.   Create a data source for the Gantt control. 


4.   Finally, initialize the Gantt control with the data source created in the previous step. 


A Gantt chart is created as shown in the following screen shot.

Concepts and Features


You can turn on Sorting during Gantt initialization by using the following code example. 

allowSorting: true,


The following code example illustrates how to turn on editing in Gantt control. 

allowEditing: true,
allowAdding: true,
allowDeleting: true,
editMode: "cellEditing"


You can show or hide the toolbar in Gantt by using the following code example. 

allowToolBar: true,
toolBarItems: [ej.Gantt.toolBarItems.Add,

Wiring Events

Events are important for providing notifications on changes and actions that have taken place in the control. The following code example illustrates event initialization in a Gantt control. 

$("#GanttContainer").ejGantt("model.eventName", );

You must bind the event’s “eventName” to the Gantt control as follows. 

dataSource: data,
allowColumnResize: true,                       

taskIdMapping: "TaskID",
taskNameMapping: "TaskName",
scheduleStartDate: "02/23/2014",
scheduleEndDate: "03/30/2014",
startDateMapping: "StartDate",                    

progressMapping: "Progress",
durationMapping: "Duration",
childMapping: "Children",                      

highlightWeekEnds: true,
rowSelected: function (args)
// Event handler.
