Gantt Screenshot

We are happy to announce v2.1.0 of Bryntum Gantt and v3.1.0 of Bryntum Scheduler. These minor releases contain plenty of bug fixes as well as a few cool new features. For full details, as always please see the Scheduler change log or Gantt change log. It might also be worth checking out the grid change log. Let’s dive into the new Gantt features first.

Gantt Task Indicators

If you have custom dates associated with your tasks, you can now visualise them easily using the new indicators feature. We also built a new indicators demo to showcase this. Out of the box, you can visualise:

  • Constraint
  • Early start / end dates
  • Late start / end dates
  • Deadline field
  • Any custom Task date field in your model, such as a post-task beer

Deadline date

A new Deadline field was added to TaskModel and a DeadlineDateColumn to display and edit it. This field will be visualised by a red flag when using the indicators feature above.

Resource assignment avatars

The ResourceAssignmentColumn has been updated to be able to show avatars for assigned resources. This makes the assignment data bit more visually pleasing. See the new showAvatars config used in the updated advanced demo.

const gantt = new Gantt({
    resourceImageFolderPath  : '../_shared/images/users/',
    columns                  : [
        { type : 'wbs' },
        { type : 'name', width : 250 },
        { type : 'startdate' },
        { type : 'duration' },
        { type : 'resourceassignment', width : 120, showAvatars : true }
     ],
     ...
});

New integration demos .NET + .NET Core backends

In the Scheduler release you will find two new integration demos for ASP.NET and .NET Core which should be useful if you are using a Microsoft stack.
