Columns in Blazor Gantt Chart Component

14 Sep 202124 minutes to read

The column displays information from a bound data source, and you can edit the values of column to update the task details through Tree Grid. The operations such as sorting, filtering, and searching can be performed based on column definitions. To display a Gantt Chart column, the Field property should be mapped from the data source to the column.

If the column Field is not specified in the data source, the column values will be empty.

The TreeColumnIndex property is used to define the expander column in the Gantt Chart component to expand and collapse the child rows.

Defining Columns

Using the GanttColumns property, you can define the columns in Gantt Chart. If the columns are not defined, then the default columns will be rendered based on the mapped data source fields in the GanttTaskFields property. Refer to the following code example for defining the columns in Gantt Chart along with their widths.

Blazor Gantt Chart with Column Formatting

By default, the number and date values are formatted in en-US culture.

Number formatting

The number or integer values can be formatted using the following format strings.

Format Description Remarks
N Denotes numeric type. The numeric format is followed by an integer value like N2 or N3, which denotes the number of precisions to be allowed.
C Denotes currency type. The currency format is followed by an integer value like C2 or C3, which denotes the number of precisions to be allowed.
P Denotes percentage type The percentage format expects the input value to be in the range of 0 to 100. For example, the cell value 0.2 is formatted as 20%. The percentage format is followed by an integer value like P2, P3, which denotes the number of precisions to be allowed.

Date formatting

You can format date values either using the built-in date format string or a custom format string. For the built-in date format, you can specify the GanttColumn.Format property as string (example: yMd).

You can also use the custom format string to format the date values. Some of the custom formats and the formatted date values are given in the following table.

Format Formatted value
{ type:’date’, format:’dd/MM/yyyy’ } 04/07/2019
{ type:’date’, format:’dd.MM.yyyy’ } 04.07.2019
{ type:’date’, skeleton:’short’ } 7/4/19
{ type: ‘dateTime’, format: ‘dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm tt’ } 04/07/2019 12:00 AM
{ type: ‘dateTime’, format: ‘MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss tt’ } 07/04/2019 12:00:00 AM

Reordering Column in Blazor Gantt Chart

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

Reorder Multiple Columns

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

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Gantt
<button @onclick="ReorderColumn">Reorder TaskName and StartDate to last</button>
<SfGantt @ref="Gantt" DataSource="@TaskCollection" Height="450px" Width="700px" AllowReordering="true">

Reordering Multiple Columns in Blazor Gantt Chart

Resizing

The column width can be resized by clicking and dragging the right edge of the column header. While dragging, the width of the column will be resized immediately. Each column can be auto resized by double-clicking the right edge of the column header to fit the width of that column based on the widest cell content. To resize the column, set the AllowResizing property to true. The following code example shows how to enable the column resize feature in the Gantt Chart component.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Gantt
<SfGantt DataSource="@TaskCollection" Height="450px" Width="700px" AllowResizing="true">
    <GanttTaskFields Id="TaskId" Name="TaskName" StartDate="StartDate" EndDate="EndDate"

}

Resizing Column in Blazor Gantt Chart

You can disable resizing for a particular column by setting the GanttColumn.AllowResizing to false.

Defining Minimum and Maximum Column Width

The column resizing can be restricted between minimum and maximum widths by defining the GanttColumn.MinWidth and GanttColumn.MaxWidth properties.

In the following example, the minimum and maximum widths are defined for the Duration, and Task Name columns.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Gantt
<SfGantt DataSource="@TaskCollection" Height="450px" Width="700px" AllowResizing="true">
    <GanttTaskFields Id="TaskId" Name="TaskName" StartDate="StartDate" EndDate="EndDate"
              Duration="Duration" Progress="Progress" Child="SubTasks">
    </GanttTaskFields>
    <GanttColumns>
        <GanttColumn Field="TaskId" Width="50"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="TaskName" Width="200" MinWidth="150" MaxWidth="250"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="StartDate"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="Duration" Width="100" MinWidth="50" MaxWidth="200"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="Progress"></GanttColumn>

Column Template

A column template is used to customize the column’s look. The following code example explains how to define the custom template in Gantt Chart using the Template property.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Gantt
@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Buttons

<SfGantt DataSource="@TaskCollection" Height="450px" Width="100%" HighlightWeekends="true" ProjectStartDate="@ProjectStart" ProjectEndDate="@ProjectEnd">
    <GanttColumns>
        <GanttColumn Field="TaskId" HeaderText="Task ID" MinWidth="150" MaxWidth="250" AllowReordering="false"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="TaskName" HeaderText="Task Name">
            <Template>
                @{
                    @if (context != null)
                    {
                        <SfButton CssClass="e-bigger" Content="@((context as TaskData).TaskName)"></SfButton>
                    }
                }
            </Template>
        </GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="Duration" HeaderText="Duration"></GanttColumn>
    </GanttColumns>

Blazor Gantt Chart with Column Template

Column Menu

The column menu has options to integrate features like sorting, filtering, and autofit. It will show a menu with the integrated feature when users click the Multiple icon of the column. To enable the column menu, you should set the ShowColumnMenu property to true.

The default items are displayed in the following table:

Item Description
SortAscending Sort the current column in ascending order.
SortDescending Sort the current column in descending order.
AutoFit Auto fit the current column.
AutoFitAll Auto fit all columns.
ColumnChooser Choose the column visibility.
Filter Shows the filter menu based on column type.

Change Tree / Expander column

The tree/expander column is a column in the Gantt Chart component, that has icons to expand or collapse the parent records. You can define the tree column index in the Gantt Chart component by using the TreeColumnIndex property and the default value of this property is 0. The following code example shows how to use this property.

Controlling Gantt Column actions

You can enable or disable gantt component action for a particular column by setting the AllowFiltering, AllowSorting, AllowReordering, and AllowEditing properties.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Gantt
<SfGantt @ref="Gantt" DataSource="@TaskCollection" Height="450px" Width="900px" AllowSorting="true" AllowFiltering="true" AllowReordering="true">

Column Type

Column type can be specified using the GanttColumn.Type property. It specifies the type of data the column binds. If the GanttColumn.Format is defined for a column, the column uses GanttColumn.Type to select the appropriate format option number or date.

Gantt column supports the following types:

  • String
  • Number
  • Boolean
  • Date
  • DateTime

If the GanttColumn.Type is not defined, it will be determined from the first record of the DataSource. In case if the first record of the DataSource is null/blank value for a column then it is necessary to define the GanttColumn.Type for that column.

Custom Columns

Using the GanttColumns property, you can define the Custom Columns in Gantt Chart. If custom columns are required, then you can generate columns that was not defined in the GanttTaskFields property. Refer to the following code example for defining the custom columns in Gantt Chart.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Gantt
<SfGantt DataSource="@TaskCollection" Height="450px" Width="700px">
    <GanttTaskFields Id="TaskId" Name="TaskName" StartDate="StartDate" EndDate="EndDate"
                     Duration="Duration" Progress="Progress" Child="SubTasks">
    </GanttTaskFields>
    <GanttColumns>
        <GanttColumn Field="TaskId" Width="150"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="TaskName" HeaderText="Job Name" Width="150"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="StartDate" HeaderText="Start Date" Width="150"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="EndDate" HeaderText="End Date" Width="150"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="Duration" HeaderText="Duration" Width="150"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="Progress" HeaderText="Progress" Width="150"></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="Status" HeaderText="Status" Width="150" EditType=Syncfusion.Blazor.Grids.EditType.DefaultEdit></GanttColumn>
        <GanttColumn Field="WorkersCount" HeaderText="Workers Count" Width="150" EditType=Syncfusion.Blazor.Grids.EditType.NumericEdit></GanttColumn>
