Adjusting charts: Gantt chart

Information about adjusting the Gantt chart interactively. It can be used as part of an interactive scheduling application.

The Gantt chart can be adjusted by dragging the bars left or right, or the events can be resized if you place the cursor at the right edge of the event. To get the details of the bar being dragged you can use the adjust or adjustend events and inside the event handler you can look at the RGraph registry - RGraph.Registry.get('adjusting.gantt') The returned array consists of:

When adjusting is complete the array is updated. So you can use the numerical index that you find in the registry (as above) with the array to get up-to-date event information.

Note: The Gantt chart uses console.log to send notifications. Press CTRL+SHIFT+J in Chrome to see the console or use Firebug in Firefox. Other browsers will vary.

The RGraph adjusting events

There are three RGraph events associated with adjusting. The adjustbegin event fires when adjusting begins, much like the mousedown event. The adjust event fires during adjusting, much like the mousemove event. The adjustend event fires when adjusting is finished, much like the mouseup event.
