Adding Assignments to a Project

Assignments are used to bind the task and resources. Project class exposes Assignments collection that represents the list of all the Assignment objects in a project. This property can be used to add assignment.

The code below shows adding assignments to a project:

  • c#
  • // Creating an instance of the Project
    
    Project project = new Project();
    
    
    
    // Creating a task
    
    Task task = new Task();
    
    task.Name = "Task1";
    
    
    
    // Adding the task to project
    
    project.RootTask.Children.Add(task);
    
    
    
    // Calculating Task ID
    
    project.CalculateTaskIDs();
    
    
    
    // Creating a resource
    
    Resource resource = new Resource();
    
    resource.Name = "Resource1";
    
    
    
    // Adding resource to project
    
    project.Resources.Add(resource)
    
    
    
    // Calculating Resource ID
    
    project.CalculateResourceIDs()
    
    
    
    // Creating an instance of Assignment
    
    Assignment assignment = new Assignment();
    
    assignment.UID = 1;
    
    
    
    // Assigning resource to task
    
    assignment.Task = task;
    
    assignment.Resource = resource;
    
    
    
    // Adding resource to project
    
    project.Resources.Add(resource);
  • vbnet
  • ' Creating an instance of Project
    
    Dim project As Project = New Project()
    
    
    
    ' Creating an instance of Task
    
    Dim task As Task = New Task()
    
    task.Name = "Task1"
    
    
    
    ' Adding the task to project
    
    project.RootTask.Children.Add(task)
    
    
    
    ' Calculating Task ID
    
    project.CalculateTaskIDs()
    
    
    
    ' Creating an instance of Resource
    
    Dim resource As Resource = New Resource()
    
    resource.Name = "Resource1"
    
    
    
    ' Adding resource to project
    
    project.Resources.Add(resource)
    
    
    
    ' Calculating Resource ID
    
    project.CalculateResourceIDs()
    
    
    
    ' Creating an instance of Assignment
    
    Dim assignment As Assignment = New Assignment()
    
    assignment.UID = 1
    
    
    
    ' Assigning tasks and resource to assignment
    
    assignment.Task = task
    
    assignment.Resource = resource
    
    
    
    ' Adding an assignment to a project
    
    project.Assignments.Add(assignment)

    The project created using the above code will look as shown in the following Microsoft Project screenshot.
