Duration Units in JavaScript Gantt control

Duration units

In Gantt, the task’s duration value can be measured by the following duration units,

  • Day
  • Hour
  • Minute

In Gantt, we can define duration unit for whole project by using durationUnit property, when we defines the value for this property, this unit will be applied for all task which don’t has duration unit value. And each task in the project can be defined with different duration units and the duration unit of a task can be defined by the following ways,

  • Using taskFields.durationUnit property, to map the duration unit data source field.
  • Defining the duration unit value along with the duration field in the data source.

Mapping the duration unit field

The below code snippet explains the mapping of duration unit data source field to the Gantt control using the taskFields.durationUnit property.
