Gantt Control VCL

Gantt Control enables software developers to schedule tasks and events

Version:  3.0

Compatible with

The component Gantt Control VCL enables software developers to visualize and schedule tasks, activities and events in their  own software applications in a flexible way. Gantt Control VCL is adaptable to different requirements and is applicable to most scenarios e.g:

  • Project management
  • Scheduling and task management
  • Production scheduling
  • Employee scheduling

Core components of the Gantt Control VCL are the gantt chart, the pert chart, the linked table view and a comprehensive printing preview.

The Gantt Control VCL component is available for the software development environments:

  • Borland Delphi 6 and 7
  • CodeGear 2005 and 2006
  • Embacadero Delphi 2009, 2010, XE, XE 2, XE3, XE5, XE6, XE7, XE8, 10 Seattle, 10.1 Berlin, 10.2 Tokyo und 10.3 Rio

Gantt Chart
Within the gantt chart the chronology of activities and tasks is visualized as bars shown under a timescale.

and features:

  • Different bar types to visualize planned activities and actual activities. It’s possible to apply a hierarchical structure to activities and group them into summary bars that allow collapsing and expanding of tasks.
  • Objects like milestones, textboxes and images can be displayed within the gantt chart.
  • Connections between two activities can be specified by parameters like the type of connection (start-finish, finish-start, start-start and finish-finish) or a minimal time range between two activities.
  • Buffer time, captions, start-, endpictogram, progress and view style can be applied for each single bar.
  • Bars can be easily moved by the user with drag&drop. New bars and connections can be created comfortable by “dragging them in” with the mouse.
  • The timescale supports the four different viewmodes “day-view”, “week-view”, “month-view” and “year-view”. Furthermore there are a lot of different options for labelling the time scale.
  • The integrated calendar modul supports defining and displaying categories for special dates like holiday or vacations. Predefined dates like weekends are already implemented.
  • The critical path, as the connection of activities that would reschedule the finish date of the project when delayed is calculated and displayed within the gantt chart.
  • All changes made to the data of the gantt chart can be recreated by using the integrated undo/redo mechanism.

Pert Chart
Within the pert chart the duration of a bar and its earliest start date, the earliest finish date, the latest finish date as well as the latest start date is visualized. Furthermore the pert chart enables structuring projects by modelling main project targets, sub-ordinate targets and work packages.

Properties and features:

  • Activities of the pert chart can be connected to each other.
  • Activities of a gantt chart and a pert can share an identical data source. This means that all activities that are created in the gantt chart are visualized  automatically in the pert chart.
  • Activities can be easily moved per drag&drop. New activities can be created by “dragged them in” with the mouse. A magnetically raster enables a clear arrangement of activities.
  • All changes made to the data of the pert chart can be recreated by using the integrated undo/redo mechanism.

Table View

For each gantt chart and pert chart an editable table view is available, storing any additional necessary information..

Properties and features:

  • The tree-like structure of the table nesting, collapsing and expanding single rows.
  • User defined columns and rows can be added or deleted at runtime.
  • For displaying and editing the information stored within the table a lot of different data type editors are supported e.g. (single line text editor, multi line text editor, date editor, time editor, combo box, image combo box, currency edit field, spin edit field and single line text editor linked to a button).
  • By clicking the header of a column, an ascending or descending sort order can be applied.
  • Within one nesting level, rows can be swapped per drag&drop. The row height can be changed independently and interactively for each row with the help of the mouse.
  • Various options for formatting the table are available. For each row the height, the colour and the text font are applicable. Highlighting single rows is as easy as pie.
  • All changes made to the data of the table chart can be recreated by using the integrated undo/redo mechanism.
  • The predefined column “number” provides the two numbering modes hierarchically and continuously.

Printing preview

The powerful printing preview provides the professional presentation of your charts and data.

Properties and features:

  • A legend can be added to a gantt or pert chart. By adding and formatting columns and rows to the legend the user’s requirements are met. For each legend cell the content (text or image) can be specified.
  • Multipage printing, fitting to pagewidth, defining a title, page header and footer, applying a background image allows high adaptability to fulfil specific requirements.
  • Within the printing preview the layout of the page header and page footer can be defined interactively. Autotext fields like “current page number” or “date” can be inserted
  • Settings can be stored to a printing profile.
  • Page borders can be adjusted with the mouse
  • A thumbnail view provides intuitive navigation between different pages.
