Filter menu in Angular Gantt component

17 Nov 20226 minutes to read

The Gantt Component provides the menu filtering support for each column. You can enable the filter menu by setting the allowFiltering to true. The filter menu UI will be rendered based on its column type, which allows you to filter data. You can filter the records with different operators.

allowFiltering must be set as true to enable filter menu.
Setting columns.allowFiltering as false will prevent filter menu rendering for a particular column.
