Export data to Microsoft Project

Did you know that you can easily export data from our Gantt Chart controls in Gantt Chart Light Library to Microsoft Project using XML? Most of end users would probably need this feature implemented in your Gantt Chart-enabled project management applications in order for them to be able to share their work more easily with people that don’t have access to your applications.

Moreover, if the reverse operation is needed, we also offer an import feature to help you provide an easy way for the end users to retreive information from updated XML files saved from Microsoft Project back to the Gantt Chart of your application.

To use the import and export features of GanttChartDataGrid control from DlhSoft Gantt Chart Light Library (either for WPF or for Silverlight) you simply need to access these methods:

  • LoadProjectXml(Stream stream)
  • SaveProjectXml(Stream stream)

Alternatively, we also offer a fully customizable ProjectXmlSerializer class (included as a nested class within GanttChartDataGrid), providing properties and events that you could easily use to set up injecting custom data elements within the exported XML files, or to supplementary retreive and apply custom data fields from the imported XML document in code behind.
