Enhanced Project Data Rendering
This month’s release brings a number of enhancements to project data rendering that enables users to get the same output from various aspects similar to Microsoft Project.
Rendering Graphical Column Indicators – Microsoft Project renders graphical indicators in columns while writing project data to output PDF or other formats. These include:
- Task indicators
- Resource indicators
- Assignment indicators
These show a graphical depiction of status based on the value of the particular data available. This months’ release of Aspose.Tasks for .NET provides the same functionality by implementing all these graphical indicators which are rendered to output PDF or any other format while exporting Project data.
Rendering Gantt Chart Lines in Gradient – The new version of Aspose.Tasks allows developers to set the gradient color of lines when rendering project data to formats such as PDF. This was not supported by the earlier versions of Aspose.Tasks. The developer can control whether the output lines should have solid or gradient color using the Boolean flag provided in SaveOptions.
Show/Hide Gantt Chart view – Aspose.Tasks now supports rendering the task sheet view to other formats such as PDF, thus providing the capability to show/hide Gantt chart view.
This month’s release also includes a number of bug fixes reported with our previous version. This includes exceptions when loading specific MPP files, formatting loss when exporting project data to HTML, and missing title in the timeline view.
