Need your help on priority bases. As we are working on commited delivery,I would like to know how can I put character limit for Task Name.

e.g.If we have Task Name character limit like 30 so user can not add more than 30 character into Task Name.

if User can paste more than 30 character than user can not paste more than 30 character.

Is there any property or some other way available in Gantt control ? Awaiting your prompt response in this regard.

Hi Kuntal 
We have prepared a sample and achieved your requirement by using “BeginEdit” and “ActionBegin” client side event. 
We can set maximum length of characters for input box by using “maxlength” attribute. While cell editing and dialog add/edit action we can set maxlength attribute for input element of task name field 
using “BeginEdit” and “ActionBegin” events.  
Please refer the following code snippets. 
             .ClientSideEvents(cs => 
    <script type="text/javascript"> 
//Event trigger at the cell edit 
        function BeginEdit(args) { 
            if (args.columnIndex == 1) { 
                $(args.cellElement).focusin(function (arg) { 
                    $("#" + arg.target.id).attr('maxlength', '15'); 
        //Event trigger at the dialog edit 
        function ActionBegin(args) { 
            if (args.requestType == "beforeOpenEditDialog") { 
                $("#GanttContainertaskNameEdit").attr('maxlength', '15'); // GanttContainer is id of Gantt control 
Please find the sample from following location.
