Annotating a Gantt Chart


User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

I'm fairly convinced that approach just isn't going to work...

How do I put categories on the Y axis and dates on the X axis. With that I

think I can meet my needs.

Thanks,

Karl

OK... This time I'll just describe the requirements for what I'm trying to

do...

Can any guru help me do this? I really need to have this done by 29 Oct.

****************************************************

- Vertical Axis - Names of projects

- Horizontal Axis - Dates (I just need to put a large cube or rectangle... I

do NOT need to show start AND end of project - just put the box on the end

of the project)

- Active links - when you click on the rectangle it takes you to a page with

more detail on the project. (currently have that working on many different

types of charts.)

And now the kicker...

- Annotation - I want to list three key features just to the right of box.

****************************************************

Rather than ask for the answer to a specific implementation, I thought I'd

tell you what I'm trying to do. Some times you get answers much faster that

way.

Using annotations in a Gantt chart is no different than any other chart

except that the axes are reversed.

You can still attach objects but the X coordinate of the object now means

the vertical and the Y is the horizontal.

I don't exactly understand where do you want the boxes too appear, are the

boxes the bars (data) ? If you can draw what you want to get, I can probably

help you achieve it.

HEADLINE: What should the Obj.Attach statement look like in this case?

Let's see if I have this right:

The X coordinate is date, and the Y coordinate is the project (uses .Legend

to label the project) so the code snip would be:

objChart.IniValueEx(0,i) = strStartDate(i)

objChart.ValueEx(0,i) = strFinishDate(i)

objChart.Legend(i) = strCodeName(i)

How does the objChart.Attach look?

I've tried the following:

Obj.Attach 1, "5, 1/1/2002"

Obj.Attach 1, "1/1/2002, 5"

and various other combinations...

What should that statement look like? How do I input date coordinates?
