Resource Histogram

A resource histogram displays the scheduled working time range of resources for its assigned tasks. Using this, you can easily identify the resource’s availability and its working time. The resource histogram is used to allocate the resources properly throughout the project and find the details about allocated resources and the allocated time ranges of a specific resource.

Data binding

You can render the histogram view for both project view Gantt and resource view Gantt by using the view-type as HistogramView.
The following code example explains how to bind the resource histogram view for project view Gantt.

  • cshtml
  • <ej-gantt id="GanttContainer" datasource="ViewBag.datasource" resources="ViewBag.resources" view-type="ProjectView" end-date-mapping="EndDate" resource-id-mapping="ResourceID" resource-name-mapping="ResourceName" resource-info-mapping="ResourceID" task-id-mapping="TaskID" task-name-mapping="TaskName" start-date-mapping="StartDate" duration-mapping="Duration" progress-mapping="Progress" child-mapping="SubTasks">
    </ej-gantt>
    <ej-gantt id="HistogramContainer" datasource="ViewBag.datasource" resources="ViewBag.resources" view-type="HistogramView" resource-id-mapping="ResourceID" resource-name-mapping="ResourceName" resource-info-mapping="ResourceID" task-id-mapping="TaskID" task-name-mapping="TaskName" start-date-mapping="StartDate" end-date-mapping="EndDate" duration-mapping="Duration" progress-mapping="Progress" child-mapping="SubTasks">
    </ej-gantt>

    NOTE

    You should bind the data source and necessary mapping properties to render the histogram view. You can differentiate whether the bound data source is project view data or resource view data using the ganttObject.isProjectViewData boolean property and load event. Set this property to true if the provided data is project view and set to false for resource view data.

    Synchronize resource histogram view Gantt with other views

    You can synchronize the splitter position and horizontal scroller position in chart side and task values of the project view/resource view Gantt control with resource histogram view Gantt by using the action-complete and splitter-resized events.

    Synchronize with project view

    The following code snippet shows how to synchronize the resource histogram view Gantt with project view Gantt.

  • cshtml
  • <ej-gantt id="GanttContainer" datasource="ViewBag.datasource" resources="ViewBag.resources" view-type="ProjectView" splitter-resized="splitterResized" action-complete="actionComplete">
    </ej-gantt>
    <ej-gantt id="HistogramContainer" datasource="ViewBag.datasource" resources="ViewBag.resources" view-type="HistogramView" load="load" splitter-resized="splitterResized" action-complete="actionComplete">
    </ej-gantt>
  • javascript
  • function load(args) {
        this.isProjectViewData = true;
    }
    function splitterResized(args) {
        if (args.isOnResize == false) return;
        if (this._id == "GanttContainer") {
            $("#HistogramContainer").ejGantt("setSplitterPosition", args.currentSplitterPosition);
        } else if (this._id == "HistogramContainer") {
            $("#GanttContainer").ejGantt("setSplitterPosition", args.currentSplitterPosition);
        }
    }
    function actionComplete(args) {
        if (args.requestType == "scroll" && args.scrollDirection == "horizontal") {
            var scrollLeft = args.scrollLeft;
            if (this._id == "GanttContainer" && !args.isScrollByMethod) {
                $("#HistogramContainer").ejGantt("setChartScrollLeft", scrollLeft);
            } else if (this._id == "HistogramContainer" && !args.isScrollByMethod) {
                $("#GanttContainer").ejGantt("setChartScrollLeft", scrollLeft);
            }
        } else if (args.requestType == "recordUpdate") {
            $("#HistogramContainer").ejGantt("updateHistogramTask", args.data, "update");
            if (args.updatedRecords && args.updatedRecords.length > 0) {
                for (var count = 0; count < args.updatedRecords.length; count++) {
                    $("#HistogramContainer").ejGantt("updateHistogramTask", args.updatedRecords[count], "update");
                }
            }
        } else if (args.requestType == "save" && args.modifiedRecord) {
            $("#HistogramContainer").ejGantt("updateHistogramTask", args.modifiedRecord, "update");
        } else if (args.requestType == "save" && args.addedRecord) {
            $("#HistogramContainer").ejGantt("updateHistogramTask", args.addedRecord, "add");
        } else if (args.requestType == "delete") {
            $("#HistogramContainer").ejGantt("updateHistogramTask", args.data, "delete");
        }
    }

    The following screenshot shows the resource histogram with project view Gantt.
