Development in progress for ASP .NET Gantt Chart printing and project management features

We are currently developing interesting new features for our Gantt Chart Web Library for ASP .NET (and partially for Gantt Chart Hyper Library for HTML5):

  • Printing: if the client browser supports printing HTML5 based inline SVG generated in documents created on the fly (as Internet Explorer 10 and the most recent versions of Google Chrome or other browsers do), developers would be able to send the content of a Gantt Chart component to the printer, including or excluding the attached grid, using a simple Print method call (with other optional configuration parameters);
  • Project management algorithms: the next build of the Web Library will support:
    • Critical path determination (and, of course, the Get Started sample app will show how you can highlight it in the view);
    • Resource leveling (heuristics based to improve performance, as featured in Gantt Chart Light Library);
  • Schedule Chart generation: supposing that a GanttChartView displays a project hierarchy, sometimes you want to display a read only ScheduleChartView, presenting the same task bars as they are assigned to the available resources, to indicate possible conflicts and resource over-allocations; we will add a new GetScheduleChartItems method to retrieve a collection of items ready to be displayed in a Schedule Chart generated on the fly;
  • Import and export data: we intend to support reading and writing Microsoft® Project® XML formatted files, with optional event handling to bind custom values whenever needed.

Update: Development completed; download the new product build (5.0.10) and enjoy!
