//To Highlight a row from chart side
if (args.data.index == 4) {
$(args.taskbar).css({ "backgroundColor": "#FFB2B2" });
queryCellInfo: function (args) {
//To Highlight a row in TreeGrid
if (args.data.index == 4)
$(args.cellElement).css({ "backgroundColor": "#FFB2B2" });
//To Highlight a cell
if ((args.data.index == 7 && args.column.field == "taskName") || (args.data.index == 2 && args.column.field == "startDate"))
