I have a function attached to queryTaskbarInfo event and it works for tasks. But I want to set a color in the way for a milestone. How can I achieve this?

export function customizeTaskbar(args) {
    if (args.data.item.status === 0)
        args.taskbarBackground = args.parentTaskbarBackground = 'grey';

    else if (args.data.item.status === 1)
        args.taskbarBackground = args.parentTaskbarBackground = 'yellow';

    else if (args.data.item.status === 2)
        args.taskbarBackground = args.parentTaskbarBackground = 'green';

Best regards,
Tomasz Tomczykiewicz

Hi Tomasz, 
We can achieve your requirement by following code snippet, 
function queryTaskbarInfo(args) { 
            //Applying Background colors 
            if (args.data.isMilestone) { 
                $(args.taskbar).find(".e-gantt-template-milestone").css("margin-top", "0px"); 
                args.milestoneBackground = "violet"; 
We have also prepared a sample for your reference. Please find the sample as below location,
