Overview

Overview

A Gantt chart is a tool used to schedule projects or show resources (e.g., equipment or employees) over periods of time. Project tasks or periods are visualized as horizontal bars, their width representing the duration.

AnyGantt allows creating two types of Gannt charts - Project and Resource. They display different timeline elements, but share most settings.

Both chart types are defined as instances of the anychart.charts.Gantt class, and both are created with the help of the anychart.ganttResource() constructor. The chart type depends exclusively on how your data is organized.

This is how the Project chart and Resource chart are structured:
