Therefore, although we have always had a dateTimePickerType setting for our components allowing the developer to easily set up the browser behavior for date-time input boxes directly, given the previously described facts it seems it has little, if any, actual use. Our advised customers have requested to address this ourselves, and – here we go – we have recently headed to offer a built-in alternative: a new cross-browser DatePicker control (that internally uses a generic HTML popup) is now available and enabled by default to allow end users to easily enter dates for the start and finish values of the tasks displayed using a Gantt Chart with an associated data grid (when the dateTimePickerType is not specifically set to a specific date-time input type value).
And since we have developed a popup-based date picker control, we have also seen the need for a similar MultiSelectorComboBox control allowing multiple checkbox selection in a drop down list for editing task assignments (i.e. selecting and unselecting resources from a list of available choices), besides entering them manually as comma separated values.
Don’t hesitate to test them live in our Gantt Chart Hyper Library demo or download the new product build and test them directly in your environment. If you find they are useful in your application, note that they are now included both with the HTML5 and ASP .NET products, and your previously existing license will continue to work with the new product builds. (For Gantt Chart Hyper Library we have also changed the version number (to 5.2) as we now also offer the new controls for external usage, i.e. outside of the 5.1 Gantt Chart controls; don’t worry, tough: if you already have a 5.x license it will continue to work with the new product version too, when the new controls are loaded within a previously existing Gantt Chart control; you’ll only need to renew the license – with a high discount of 70%, tough – if you need to get the new controls available externally, i.e. outside of the Gantt Chart component’s UI.)
Thank you for your interest!
