Select Task On Click of Expand or Collapse Icon

Environment

Product Progress Kendo UI Gantt
Product Version 2020.3.1021

Description

I want to be able to click on the expand/collapse icon of the parent task and select the current row.

Solution

  1. Attach an event handler to the expand and collapse events of the built-in TreeList.
  2. Get a reference to the current row.
  3. Use the Gantt select method to select the current row.
    gantt.list.bind('expand',function(e){
        gantt.select(this.element.find('[data-uid="'+e.model.uid+'"]'));
    });

    gantt.list.bind('collapse',function(e){
        gantt.select(this.element.find('[data-uid="'+e.model.uid+'"]'));
    });

Example


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

    <script>
        $(document).ready(function() {
            var serviceRoot = "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service";

                },
                update: {
