Can you customize the Gantt Chart View for lists?

  Asked By: Heriberto    Date: Feb 07    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 11820

Is there a recommended way to customize the Gantt Chart View for
lists? I am assuming that the view styles available OOB can be
supplemented with more views by adding modules to the XML files within
the 12 hive, but is that a supported customization? If so, what is the
best recommendation for accomplishing this type of customization?

I have a requirement to try and copy the Gantt Chart View markup to
create a new view that allows the user to set the time frame that the
chart displays (i.e. yearly, monthly, daily) and possibly the
capability of freezing the items list pane on the left.

I assume that if this was a supported customization, that the best
method of deployment is a Feature/Solution package. Is there any
guidance on which file in the 12 hive actually provides the specifics
of the various view styles for lists (i.e. Standard, Datasheet,
Calendar, Gantt) that are provided OOB? If not, is a custom web part
the only choice?

I can't remember ever seeing any documentation about customising the OOTB Gantt chart  that way.

You may find some of Christophe's blog posts interesting - he uses JavaScript inside CEWP's to do some funky things with the built in Calendar/Gantt charts.
