Support for Ms Project Task's Extended properties

Thread ID:

Asked On June 28, 2017 04:09 PM UTC

We need to add some custom data to the file generated by Syncfusion WPF Gantt control and exported as Ms Project XML file: is it possible?
We know it is possibile to use TaskAttributeMapping to bind some fields, but we can't find any way to read/write data in the tags as <ExtendedAttribute> of Ms Project XML format <Task>....

Any idea?

Hi Gian, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support. 

We have achieved your requirement of exporting Gantt control custom model to XML format in the sample level. Please find the demo sample from the following location. 

Sample: ExportXML 
In the exported XML file, we can edit or add the task by using the <Task> tag.

Thanks Sridharan!

The example you provided allows to export some custom data, but in the case we need to read back the extra data we saved in the Ms Project XML file?

Project class hasn't a method to import/read XML files directly (and "custom" tags)... I suppose ProjectReader class  can do it, but i can't figure how...

Any idea is appreciated....

Have a nice day,
