Color a Task's text & Gantt bar

I’m very new to your product. Can you please show me a simple code example where:

1. Two tasks are created.
2. The text color for task1 is set to Blue and the Gantt bar is set to Red.
3. The text color for task2 is set to Red and the Gantt bar is set to Blue.

Thanks in advance…

Is the following the correct approach? It is based on code from here.

static void ImplementCustomBarSytle()

{

Project project = new Project("C:\\temp\\AsposeTest.mpp"); // empty mpp project

project.RootTask.Children.Add("Task1"); // add task with id = 1

project.RootTask.Children.Add("Task2"); // add task with id = 2

project.RootTask.Children.Add("Task3"); // add task with id = 3

GanttChartView view = project.DefaultView as GanttChartView;

GanttBarStyle customBlue = GetCustomBarStyleBlue(); // see the code below

view.CustomBarStyles.Add(customBlue); // add the custom bar style to the custom bar collection of the project view

GanttBarStyle customRed = GetCustomBarStyleRed(); // see the code below

view.CustomBarStyles.Add(customRed); // add the custom bar style to the custom bar collection of the project view

string file = "C:\\temp\\CustomStyle.mpp";

MPPSaveOptions options = new MPPSaveOptions();

options.WriteViewData = true;

project.Save(file, options);

}

private static GanttBarStyle GetCustomBarStyleBlue()

{

GanttBarStyle style = new GanttBarStyle();

style.ShowFor = "2";

style.MiddleShape = GanttBarMiddleShape.RectangleBottom;

style.MiddleFillPattern = GanttBarFillPattern.MediumFill;

style.MiddleShapeColor = Color.Blue;

style.StartShape = GanttBarEndShape.ArrowDown;

style.StartShapeColor = Color.Red;

style.EndShape = GanttBarEndShape.ArrowUp;

style.EndShapeColor = Color.Yellow;

style.LeftField = Field.TaskResourceNames;

style.RightField = Field.TaskName;

style.TopField = Field.TaskStart;

style.BottomField = Field.TaskFinish;

style.InsideField = Field.TaskDuration;

return style;

}

private static GanttBarStyle GetCustomBarStyleRed()

{

GanttBarStyle style = new GanttBarStyle();

style.ShowFor = "1;3";

style.MiddleShape = GanttBarMiddleShape.RectangleBottom;

style.MiddleFillPattern = GanttBarFillPattern.MediumFill;

style.MiddleShapeColor = Color.Red;

style.StartShape = GanttBarEndShape.ArrowDown;

style.StartShapeColor = Color.Red;

style.EndShape = GanttBarEndShape.ArrowUp;

style.EndShapeColor = Color.Yellow;

style.LeftField = Field.TaskResourceNames;

style.RightField = Field.TaskName;

style.TopField = Field.TaskStart;

style.BottomField = Field.TaskFinish;

style.InsideField = Field.TaskDuration;

return style;

}

You are welcome.

Hi,


Are you able to give me the approximate resolution date to fix this bug? We are trying to determine if it’s worth implementing a temporary 3rd party fix for this issue until the Aspose problem is resolved.


Thanks
