Column Reordering in Blazor Gantt Chart Component

13 Jul 202210 minutes to read

The column reordering can be done by dragging a column header from one index to another index within the Tree Grid. To enable reordering, set the AllowReordering property to true.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Gantt
<SfGantt DataSource="@TaskCollection" Height="450px" Width="700px" AllowReordering="true">
    <GanttTaskFields Id="TaskId" Name="TaskName" StartDate="StartDate" EndDate="EndDate"
             Duration="Duration" Progress="Progress" ParentID="ParentId">
    </GanttTaskFields>
</SfGantt>

@code{
    private List<TaskData> TaskCollection { get; set; }
    protected override void OnInitialized()
    {
        this.TaskCollection = GetTaskCollection();
    }

    public class TaskData
    {
        public int TaskId { get; set; }
        public string TaskName { get; set; }
        public DateTime StartDate { get; set; }
        public DateTime EndDate { get; set; }
        public string Duration { get; set; }
        public int Progress { get; set; }
        public int? ParentId { get; set; }
    }

    public static List<TaskData> GetTaskCollection()
    {
        List<TaskData> Tasks = new List<TaskData>() 
        {
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 1, TaskName = "Project initiation", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 05), EndDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 21), },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 2, TaskName = "Identify Site location", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 05), Duration = "0", Progress = 30, ParentId = 1 },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 3, TaskName = "Perform soil test", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 05), Duration = "4", Progress = 40, ParentId = 1 },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 4, TaskName = "Soil test approval", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 05), Duration = "0", Progress = 30, ParentId = 1 },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 5, TaskName = "Project estimation", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 06), EndDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 21), },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 6, TaskName = "Develop floor plan for estimation", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 06), Duration = "3", Progress = 30, ParentId = 5 },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 7, TaskName = "List materials", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 06), Duration = "3", Progress = 40, ParentId = 5 },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 8, TaskName = "Estimation approval", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 06), Duration = "0", Progress = 30, ParentId = 5 }
        };
        return Tasks;
    }
}

Reordering Column in Blazor Gantt Chart

You can disable the reordering of a particular column by setting the GanttColumn.AllowReordering property to false.

Reorder single column

Gantt chart has option to reorder single column either by Interaction or by using the ReorderColumns method. In the following sample, Duration column is reordered to last column position by using the method.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Gantt
<SfButton OnClick="ReorderBtn" CssClass="e-primary" IsPrimary="true" Content="Reorder Freight"></SfButton>
<SfGantt DataSource="@TaskCollection" Height="450px" Width="700px" AllowReordering="true">
    <GanttTaskFields Id="TaskId" Name="TaskName" StartDate="StartDate" EndDate="EndDate"
             Duration="Duration" Progress="Progress" ParentID="ParentId">
    </GanttTaskFields>
    <GanttColumns>
        <GanttColumn Field="TaskId" HeaderText="Task Id" Width="150"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="TaskName" HeaderText="Task Name"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="StartDate" HeaderText="Start Date"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="Duration" HeaderText="Duration"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="Progress" HeaderText="Progress"></GanttColumn>
    </GanttColumns>
</SfGantt>

@code{
    private List<TaskData> TaskCollection { get; set; }
    protected override void OnInitialized()
    {
        this.TaskCollection = GetTaskCollection();
    }

    public class TaskData
    {
        public int TaskId { get; set; }
        public string TaskName { get; set; }
        public DateTime StartDate { get; set; }
        public DateTime EndDate { get; set; }
        public string Duration { get; set; }
        public int Progress { get; set; }
        public int? ParentId { get; set; }
    }

    public static List<TaskData> GetTaskCollection()
    {
        List<TaskData> Tasks = new List<TaskData>() 
        {
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 1, TaskName = "Project initiation", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 05), EndDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 21), },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 2, TaskName = "Identify Site location", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 05), Duration = "0", Progress = 30, ParentId = 1 },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 3, TaskName = "Perform soil test", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 05), Duration = "4", Progress = 40, ParentId = 1 },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 4, TaskName = "Soil test approval", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 05), Duration = "0", Progress = 30, ParentId = 1 },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 5, TaskName = "Project estimation", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 06), EndDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 21), },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 6, TaskName = "Develop floor plan for estimation", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 06), Duration = "3", Progress = 30, ParentId = 5 },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 7, TaskName = "List materials", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 06), Duration = "3", Progress = 40, ParentId = 5 },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 8, TaskName = "Estimation approval", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 06), Duration = "0", Progress = 30, ParentId = 5 }
        };
        return Tasks;
    }

    public void ReorderBtn()
    {
        this.DefaultGrid.ReorderColumns("Duration", "Progress");
    }
}

Reorder multiple columns

Multiple columns can be reordered at a time by using the ReorderColumnsAsync method.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Gantt
@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Buttons
<SfButton @onclick="ReorderColumn">Reorder TaskName and StartDate to last</SfButton>
<SfGantt @ref="Gantt" DataSource="@TaskCollection" Height="450px" Width="700px" AllowReordering="true">
    <GanttTaskFields Id="TaskId" Name="TaskName" StartDate="StartDate" EndDate="EndDate"
             Duration="Duration" Progress="Progress" ParentID="ParentId">
    </GanttTaskFields>
    <GanttColumns>
        <GanttColumn Field="TaskId" HeaderText="Task Id" Width="150"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="TaskName" HeaderText="Task Name"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="StartDate" HeaderText="Start Date"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="Duration" HeaderText="Duration"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="Progress" HeaderText="Progress"></GanttColumn>
    </GanttColumns>
    <GanttSplitterSettings Position="100%"></GanttSplitterSettings>
</SfGantt>

@code{
    public SfGantt<TaskData> Gantt;
    public void ReorderColumn()
    {
        this.Gantt.ReorderColumnsAsync(new List<string>(){"TaskName", "StartDate"},"Progress");
    }
    private List<TaskData> TaskCollection { get; set; }
    protected override void OnInitialized()
    {
        this.TaskCollection = GetTaskCollection();
    }

    public class TaskData
    {
        public int TaskId { get; set; }
        public string TaskName { get; set; }
        public DateTime StartDate { get; set; }
        public DateTime EndDate { get; set; }
        public string Duration { get; set; }
        public int Progress { get; set; }
        public List<TaskData> SubTasks { get; set; }
    }

    public static List<TaskData> GetTaskCollection()
    {
        List<TaskData> Tasks = new List<TaskData>() 
        {
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 1, TaskName = "Project initiation", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 05), EndDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 21), },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 2, TaskName = "Identify Site location", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 05), Duration = "0", Progress = 30, ParentId = 1 },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 3, TaskName = "Perform soil test", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 05), Duration = "4", Progress = 40, ParentId = 1 },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 4, TaskName = "Soil test approval", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 05), Duration = "0", Progress = 30, ParentId = 1 },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 5, TaskName = "Project estimation", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 06), EndDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 21), },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 6, TaskName = "Develop floor plan for estimation", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 06), Duration = "3", Progress = 30, ParentId = 5 },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 7, TaskName = "List materials", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 06), Duration = "3", Progress = 40, ParentId = 5 },
            new TaskData() { TaskId = 8, TaskName = "Estimation approval", StartDate = new DateTime(2022, 04, 06), Duration = "0", Progress = 30, ParentId = 5 }
        };
        return Tasks;
    }
}
