Always rendered as type "task"


I’m trying to render one of the task as project, to ignore “start_date” and “end_date”. Even when I set type to “project”, rendered object still have property $rendered_type: “task”, and when I try to delete “start_date” and “end_date” there is exception, because of “$no_end” is false. Here are my object to parse:

project: { id: project._id, text: 'project', open: true, type: 'project' }

and here is rendered object:

project: { $index: 0 $level: 0 $no_end: false $no_start: false $open: true $rendered_parent: 0 $rendered_type: "task" $source: [] $target: [] duration: 7 end_date: Mon Dec 18 2017 23:59:00 GMT+0100 (CET) {constructor: ƒ} id: "tkWPkvCDS9vBiYuan" open: true parent: 0 progress: 0.4 start_date: Tue Dec 12 2017 00:00:00 GMT+0100 (CET) {constructor: ƒ} text: "project 1" type: "project" }

How can I render this task as project ?

I cannot face this issue, please try to run at browser console

{“id”:42, “text”:“Project #42”, type:“project”, “progress”: 0.6, “open”: true}

This will add the “project” to the chart ($no_start = $no_end = true)

To clarify, I’m using react and configured with … tmlxgantt/

When I add task from console it renders correctly, but when I run gantt.getTask(42) it still has property:

$rendered_type: "task"

The issue is when I’m saving “snapshot” of current chart to JSON string, and then trying to reload data with that snapshot:

gannt.clearAll() gannt.parse(jsonSnapshot)
It renders but project task behave like type task…

The issue is related to the fact that task types is available only in PRO edition. And if you set gantt package via npm - currently you can get only Standart version.

Right now the available solution is to add a PRO package of dhtmlxGantt to your project by hand.
If you want to use it with npm - you could put the package to your private npm feed and install it from there.
