$(function() {
    $("#gantt").dxGantt({

autoUpdateParentTasks

Specifies whether to recalculate the parent task's duration and progress when its child tasks are modified.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: false

The Gantt uses the following rules to determine whether to update a parent task when its subtask is modified.

  • A parent task's duration equals a summary duration of its child tasks.
  • A parent task and its first child starts at the same time.
  • A parent task and its last child ends at the same time.
  • A parent task's progress is a summary progress of its child tasks.

validateDependencies

Enables task dependencies validation.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: false

The Gantt allows you to validate relationships between tasks when they are edited.

Finish to Finish (FF):
DevExtreme Gantt - Dependency validation - Finish To Finish

  • Cancel the operation.
  • Delete the dependency.
  • Move the task and keep the dependency. It creates a gap between tasks. Note that you can move tasks forward and backward within this gap while it meets the dependency rules.
