Updating row drag and dropped index position on server side in JavaScript (ES5) Gantt control

Row dropped record’s index position can be maintained in the Gantt chart by changing the database table index position using the rowDrop event. In this event, the fromIndex and dropIndex values can be passed to the server side using Ajax request. On the server side, the insert and insertAtTop methods are used to update the row index position. The following code snippets explain the solution.

import { Gantt, Selection, Edit, RowDD, IGanttData } from '../src/index';
import { Ajax } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';
Gantt.Inject(Selection, Edit, RowDD );

let gantt: Gantt = new Gantt({
    dataSource: new DataManager({
        url: 'https://localhost:44379/Home/UrlDatasource',
        adaptor: new UrlAdaptor,
        crossDomain: true,
        batchUrl: 'https://localhost:44379/Home/BatchUpdate'
    }),
    taskFields: {
        id: 'TaskID',
        name: 'TaskName',
        startDate: 'StartDate',
        duration: 'Duration',
        progress: 'Progress',
        dependency:'Predecessor',
        child: 'subtasks'
    },
    allowRowDragAndDrop: true,
    rowDrop: function (args) {
        let record = this.flatData[args.fromIndex][this.taskFields.id];
        let record2 = this.flatData[args.dropIndex][this.taskFields.id];
        let data: IGanttData = args.data[0];
        let uri = 'https://localhost:44379/Home/RowDropMethod';
        let dragdropdata = {
             record: data[0].taskData,
             position: args.dropIndex,
             dragidMapping: record,
             dropidMapping: record2
        };
        let ajax = new Ajax(
        {
            url: uri,
            type: 'POST',
            contentType: "application/json",
            data: JSON.stringify(dragdropdata),
        });
        ajax.send();
     }
});
