Description

How can I add a button which will expand or collapse all tasks in my Gantt?

Solution

  1. Add a button to your page and subscribe for its click event.
  2. In the click function, get a reference to the DataSource of the Gantt (all tasks that are rendered in it).
  3. Implement a loop to iterate through all tasks.
  4. Use set("expanded", [true/false]) to manage the expanded state.

<div id="example">

    <input class="k-button" type="button" value="Expand/Collapse"></input>

    <div id="gantt"></div>

    <script>
        $(document).ready(function() {
            $(".k-button").click(function(e) {
                var tasks = $("#gantt").data("kendoGantt").dataSource.view();
                var shouldExpand = !tasks[0].expanded;
                for (i = 0; i < tasks.length; i++) {

                    tasks[i].set("expanded", shouldExpand)
                }
            })

            var serviceRoot = "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service";
            var tasksDataSource = new kendo.data.GanttDataSource({
                transport: {
                    read: {
                        url: serviceRoot + "/GanttTasks",
                        dataType: "jsonp"
                    },
                    update: {
                        url: serviceRoot + "/GanttTasks/Update",
                        dataType: "jsonp"
                    },
                    destroy: {
                        url: serviceRoot + "/GanttTasks/Destroy",
                        dataType: "jsonp"
                    },
                    create: {
                        url: serviceRoot + "/GanttTasks/Create",
                        dataType: "jsonp"
                    },

                        if (operation !== "read") {
                            return {
                                models: kendo.stringify(options.models || [options])
                            };
                        }
