Version 4.x History
AnyGantt Qlik Extension version 4.7.257Released Apr 18, 2023
Gantt: Smart Data LoadingRevamped data handling so that data now loads partially and only when it's needed. This results in faster load times and a more responsive user interface. We've also added a "Loading data" message so you know what's going on while you wait.
Gantt: Faster Chart RenderingWe've overhauled the rendering mechanism to ensure that chart rendering speed is no longer affected by a large volume of data. You'll notice a dramatic increase in drawing speed!
Gantt: Optimized Expression PerformanceWe've resolved an issue related to expressions that previously caused unnecessary redraws, which used to slow everything down. With this improvement, expressions are optimized for better performance, and you can manipulate data faster and more efficiently.
Gantt: Enhanced Printing CapabilitiesWe've fixed a bug that caused missing labels on Gantt charts when printing through the toolbar. So now you can print your Gantt charts accurately without any issues.

AnyGantt Qlik Extension version 4.0Released Nov 01, 2019
Cascade Coloring of Rows
In the 4.0 release, we've introduced two pre-built coloring patterns for rows. One of them is cascade, which implies that each next nesting level is colored lighter than the previous one while staying within the same hue. This is designed to streamline the visual perception of nesting.
Odd-Even Coloring of Rows
The other row coloring pattern delivered in version 4.0 of the AnyGantt extension can be applied to get odd and even rows colored differently. This style is expected to help data analysts better recognize which row one Gantt chart element or another belongs to.
Expanded/Collapsed by Default
We've further extended the default state settings. In particular, you can easily make a Gantt chart appear collapsed down to the top nesting level, facilitating the initial general overview of the project progress or resource allocation.
Now it is possible to show dependencies between tasks in a project by means of showing connectors that link one activity to another.
Export, NPrinting, and Snapshots
Meet the full-fledged support of exporting to PNG, PDF, and NPrinting as it is already added to our AnyGantt extension for Qlik Sense! Snapshots properly show the state of the Gantt chart: zoomed in/out, expanded/collapsed, etc.
You can now specify an expression in a text field to set a condition that needs to be fulfilled (true) for the object to be displayed. The value may be entered as a calculated formula. For example: count(distinct Team)<3. If the condition is not fulfilled, the message or expression entered in Displayed message is displayed.
A calculation condition is useful when a chart or table is very big and makes the visualization slow to respond. A calculation condition can then help so that for example an object does not show until the user has filtered the data to a more manageable level by applying selections.
Showing Measures as Columns in Resource Chart
In the new version, we've also provided Resource Charts with the capability to visualize measures as columns on the data grid - like in Project Charts. This allows additional information about the elements of a Resource Gantt Chart diagram to be neatly displayed.
Table Header Settings
Table headers can now be stylized to the full extent. In particular, it is possible to customize the background color, font, as well as the text.
Now you can apply a numbering scheme to the rows in your Gantt Chart. There are currently three options available out of the box:
- single-level, i.e. consecutive numbering - when all elements are numbered one by one in regular ascending order, e.g. 1, 2, 3, and so on;
- multi-level, i.e. hierarchical numbering - when top-level elements are numbered 1, 2, 3, and so on, second-level elements are numbered 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, and so on, etc.;
- custom - to be determined using a function.
Label Position Settings
Last but not least, we've brought a set of UI controls to facilitate arranging a desired position for labels within or beyond task bars:
- inside a bar - alignment to the left, center, or right;
- outside - sticking to the bars' left or right sides.
