I am working with a GanttControl with an item datasource, so I don´t want to be able to move and resize appointments. How can i do it?

Hi Ander, 
Greetings from Syncfusion,  
We have analyzed your requirement and you can achieve this by disabling the GanttChart as per the below code snippet. 

<!--  Gantt Control Information  --> 
<gantt:GanttControl x:Name="Gantt" 
                    ItemsSource="{Binding TaskDetails}" 
private void Gantt_OnLoaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) 
    GanttChart chart = this.Gantt.FindElementOfType<GanttChart>(); 
    if (chart != null) 
        chart.IsEnabled = false; 
We have prepared a sample based on this, please find the sample from the following location.  
Hope it helps you.

Hi Muneesh,

I implement the code that you pass and the drag, drop and resize works perfectly, but with the property isenabled as false i am not able to see the tooltip information. Can I disable the drag,drop,resize properties but not the tooltip?

Hi Ander, 
Thanks for you update. 
We have achieved your requirement by applying custom node style (removed the touch points & disabled the dragging and resizing thumbs in the default node style) as per the below snippet 
Code snippet: 
<!--  GanttControl Information  --> 
<sync:GanttControl x:Name="Gantt" 
        <Style BasedOn="{StaticResource HeaderNode}" TargetType="chart:HeaderNode" /> 
        <Style BasedOn="{StaticResource TaskNode}" TargetType="chart:GanttNode" /> 
        <Style BasedOn="{StaticResource MileStone}" TargetType="chart:MileStone" /> 
Please find the sample from the below link. 
To know more about custom node style. Please refer the following user guide link. 
Please let us know if you have any other queries.
