In Gantt it is possible to format a specific row or a cell using the queryCellInfo and queryTaskbarInfo client side events. queryCellInfo event will be triggered while rendering each cell in TreeGrid whereas queryTaskbarInfo event will be triggered while rendering each taskbar from Ganttchart.

The below code example explains about how to highlight a specific row and cell in Gantt:

<div id="GanttContainer" style="height:450px;width:100%"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function () {
queryTaskbarInfo: function (args) {
//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"))
$(args.cellElement).css({ "backgroundColor": "#008000" });
