How to customize the SharePoint Gantt view

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

A SharePoint Gantt view is made of two sections: the Gantt view itself (not customizable), and underneath a “summary list” that displays the task properties. How can we remove the “Summary list” sections? We want to display only the Gantt view itself at one place on our site.

SharePoint Designer 2007 - Customize List View - Error when saving view ASPX page


We have a custom list definition that includes custom site columns.  When we try to open one of the list view aspx pages in SharePoint to update the view query we get an error when trying to save the page in SharePoint Designer 2007.  We receive a warning that the operation will customize the page from the site definition, which is fine.  And then get a general "Server error: ServiceRequestorID" alert.  ServiceRequestorID is a custom site column used by the list definition.

ServiceRequestorID field definition:

<Field ID="{FA39D24D-AB40-4b1d-BD80-94ABE34A7578}" Name="ServiceRequestorID" DisplayName="Service Requestor ID" StaticName="

Unable to see the Gantt View on Sharepoint 2010



on a Sharepoint 2010 environment, I've got a problem displaying the Gantt side of a Project task list: I can see the columns with Task name, Start, Finish and so on but the right side is empty. I can see the calendar grid but no bars are shown.

I thoug about a problem with IE settings but checking with onther person we saw the they were the same.

No error is shown in IE, the Sharepoint log or anywhere else.

Anybody has in idea about the possible cause?

Register Java-Script Events on SharePoint 2010 Gantt View



did someone of you already try to implement dragging and dropping items in Gantt View for SharePoint 2010?

I was trying to register some JavaScript-Events on the vml-Elements (<v:shape class="jsgrid-vml".../>) representing events in the gantt-view. The problem is that i can not access theese items through DOM... Theese Elements are also not included in the html-code of the page (right click-> view source)...

Before I start to write a SilverLight-WebPart I just wanted to ask, if there are better Ideas...:-)



SharePoint Desiger 2010 Workflow causing Gantt view failure?


I would love to know if anyone seen the following and found a workaround?

  1. Create an Issue Tracker list and a Tasks list
  2. Add a very simple workflow to the Issue Tracker list using SPD 2010 to:
    1. Create an Item in the Tasks list
    2. Update the Issue Tracker list item (e.g. to set it Issue Status value to Resolved)
  3. On the Issue Tracker list try to now view the list using a Gantt view (you will have to create one)

At this point we are seeing errors rendering the Gantt view and the ULS logs seem to indicate that the error is from some code that is trying to parse a multi-value column, and as best we can make out, the column it seems to be failing on is the Property Bag (MetaInfo) column. The peculiar thing is that the Task list's Gantt view does render (with the same type of values in the MetaInfo column).

Weird one, and I would greatly appreciate it if anyone has a solution they can share!


Six easy ways to customize your site using Web Parts in SharePoint

Becoming familiar with Web Part customization techniques gives you a range of page-customization choices. For example, you can customize your site's home page so that it displays the specific information that your team needs. You can rearrange the list items on the home page, add lists, and even change the images on the home page. As you become more familiar with Web Part Page customization techniques, you can build interactive Web Part Pages that makes the data in lists more dynamic and useful, and you can add new Web Parts that provide access to external data and Web services.

Issue with opening SharePoint library in Windows Explorer view

I am having trouble opening a document library in Windows Explorer view. The portal is MOSS 2007. I have installed Office 2007 and IE7 on my computer. The error that I get is
"Documents in this folder are not available. The folder may have been moved or deleted, or network problems may be preventing a connection to the server."

How to create scrolling table for columns in a SharePoint Designer Data View


I have a fairly complex SharePoint Designer 2007 Data View they have added two more requirements.

1. Have the columns on the right side be able to scroll left to right as there is a large number of columns, while the first 3 columns on the left side stay locked in place.  This is only one list not two, and because of some other requirements I have it must remain to be just one list.

2. Then they also need to have scrolling up and down of the entire list with the headers locked in place.

The first requirement is more important than the second, but preferrably I need to do both.

I am new to XSL so not familar with the syntax. Is this something I can do on a custom Data View? Does anyone have any examples of how?

I have a drawing that show how it needs to look but I don't see an option here to upload a graphic.

So here is a link to my graphic example uploaded to my blog area: http://lindachapman.blogspot.com/  or just the image here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aB01ue__NvQ/TGL42MOvrGI/AAAAAAAAAA4/c3xP4uCy4BU/s1600/Scrolling.png

I failed to mention that 3/4 of the columns are HTML Calculated fields wh

Sharepoint 2007 View Problem

I have a document library in Sharepoint 2007 in which I have seet up a number of different views so that the users who work with the information in that library can filter down to the specific area that they work with.  The view itself works great, and they are able to see their data quite easily.  The problem comes when they actually go in and edit any of the items.  Unlike most software in the civilized world for the past 30 years, the user is not returned to the view that they were working with, but to the defult view.  This means that any task where they are required to do many edits at a time becomes a frustrating nightmare and waste of time.  Is there any setting I can change, or anything else at all that I can do to give my users a little relief by making the site navigation such that they are returned after an edit to the same view that they were in before the edit?  Ideally, it would be nice if the same scroll position within the view were returned as well, but I suspect that I may be asking for too much by pushing that issue.  HELP! HELP!  Any and all constructive assistance is appreciated.

How to create a custom Gantt Chart for SharePoint using VS

So I have been told you can't create a custom gantt chart using SharePoint Designer.  I don't believe that actually, there must be a way to create one from scratch using SPD and a Data View and editing the XSL directly....but assuming there is not..

Are there any articles that explain for a non-developer how to create a custom gantt chart for a SharePoint site using Visual Studio 2008?

Sharepoint and IIS/Windows Event Logs in a single view

Hi - I'm coinsidering addng sharepoint log reading capabilities into an application I've built for reading windows and IIS logs (for more info http://logenvy.com). I know there are quite a few applications capable of reading sharepoint logs (a number are listed here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/781179/sharepoint-2007-log-viewer). Does anyone think the capability to analyse windows and IIS logs alongside sharepoint logs would be useful, or have any logging requirements not well met by the current set of tools? I'm especially keen to explore useful/interesting data visualizations on top of data logs.

scrollbar is not showing for sharepoint list with group by view

Hi, have created a Share point 2007 list having a huge data. I have created a group by view by grouping the data with category. My requirement is to show the data as web part on a page. When i did so, while expanding the group inside the web part, the web part is expanding. I want to keep the height and width of the web part fixed so that the layout of the page will not be ugly looking. But though I am putting the option for fixed height and width in the web part setting but I am not able to see the scroll bars. Where as I can see the height and width are fixed but could see a few data instead of all the data with scroll bar.   Please advice me if there is any solution or workaround.Deeptyranjan
