Change schedule dates in Angular Gantt component

19 Sep 20223 minutes to read

In the Gantt component, you can change the schedule start and end dates by clicking the custom button programmatically using the updateProjectDates method. You can pass the start and end dates as method arguments to the updateProjectDates method. You can also pass the Boolean value as an additional parameter, which is used to round-off the schedule start and end dates displayed in Gantt timeline.
