Searching

The Gantt control for JavaScript has in-built support for searching any content in Gantt.

Searching for content columns

In Gantt, we can search the content using the JavaScript method searchItem with search key as parameter. Also, we can integrate the search text box in Gantt toolbar by adding search toolbar item in ToolbarSettings.ToolbarItems property.

The following code example shows you how to add search option in Gantt toolbar.

  • cshtml
  • @(Html.EJ().Gantt("GanttContainer")
              //...
    		  .ToolbarSettings(toolbar=>
    		 {
    			 toolbar.ShowToolbar(true);
    			 toolbar.ToolbarItems(new List<GanttToolBarItems>(){
    				 GanttToolBarItems.Search   //To search the task
    			 });
         })   	
    )
    @(Html.EJ().ScriptManager())

    The following screenshot shows the output of searching for string in Gantt control.
