Data Binding

The Gantt component uses DataManager for binding the data source, which supports both RESTful JSON data services and local JavaScript object array. The DataSource property can be assigned either with the instance of DataManager or JavaScript object array collection. The Gantt component supports binding two types of data:

  • Local data
  • Remote data

Local data

To bind local data to Gantt, you can assign a JavaScript object array to the DataSource property. The local data source can also be provided as an instance of the DataManager.

In local data binding, the data source for rendering the Gantt component is retrieved from the same application locally.

The following are the two types of data binding possible with the Gantt component:

  • Hierarchical data binding.
  • Self-referential data binding (Flat data).

Hierarchical data binding

The Child property is used to map the child records in hierarchical data.

The following code example shows how to bind the hierarchical local data into the Gantt component.

@using Syncfusion.EJ2.Blazor.Gantt
<EjsGantt DataSource="@TaskCollection" Height="450px" Width="700px">
    <GanttTaskFields Id="TaskId" Name="TaskName" StartDate="StartDate" EndDate="EndDate" Duration="Duration" Progress="Progress" Child="SubTasks">
    </GanttTaskFields>
</EjsGantt>

                }
            })
        }
    };

    return Tasks;

Self-referential data binding (Flat data)

The Gantt component can be bound with self-referential data by mapping the data source field values to the Id and ParentID properties.

  • ID field: This field contains unique values used to identify each individual task and it is mapped to the Id property.
  • Parent ID field: This field contains values that indicate parent tasks and it is mapped to the ParentID property.
@using Syncfusion.EJ2.Blazor.Gantt

Remote data

To bind remote data to the Gantt component, assign service data as an instance of DataManager to the DataSource property.

@using Syncfusion.EJ2.Blazor.Gantt
@using Syncfusion.EJ2.Blazor.Data
<EjsGantt TValue="GanttRemoteData" Height="450px">
    <EjsDataManager url="https://ej2services.syncfusion.com/production/web-services/api/GanttData" Adaptor="Adaptors.WebApiAdaptor" CrossDomain="true"></EjsDataManager>
    <GanttTaskFields Id="TaskId" Name="TaskName" StartDate="StartDate" Duration="Duration" Progress="Progress" Dependency="Predecessor" Child="SubTasks">
    </GanttTaskFields>
</EjsGantt>

@code{
    public class GanttRemoteData
    {
        public int TaskId { get; set; }
        public string TaskName { get; set; }
        public DateTime StartDate { get; set; }
        public string Duration { get; set; }
        public int Progress { get; set; }
        public string Predecessor { get; set; }
        public List<GanttRemoteData>SubTasks { get; set; }
