Stop Autofocus on task change


Hello everyone,

This might be an issue of my own but I wanted to know if it is possible to remove the autofocus on task change. Everytime I edit a task and hit enter or just click outside of it the scroll bar (vertical) moves all the way to the top, when I have to edit multiple tasks and the quantity is high it gets really unproductive to scroll down everytime.

Can anyone help? Thanks!


Hello Daniel,
You need to make sure that the preserve_scroll parameter is enabled, and you can turn off the initial_scroll parameter:
Here is an example:

If you reinitialize Gantt after editing a task, it is expected that Gantt scrolls to the top as the scroll position is not saved. You need to manually do that.
Here are examples of how it might be implemented:

If that doesn’t help you, probably the issue is related to Gantt configuration. But it is hard to suggest what might be wrong as I don’t see your code.
In that case, please, reproduce the issue in the snippet, then click on the “Share” button and send me the link:
Or send me a ready demo with all the necessary Javascript and CSS files so that I can reproduce the issue locally.
