Not so long ago we presented a mini component for convenient selection of data from database. This time we’d like to share the similar solution, but the purpose of it is quite different – it provides the ability to read your file system easily. So, meet another DHTMLX mini component – dhtmlxFileSelector.
We’d like to share dhtmlxGantt Roadmap with you. Here you’ll find our plans about new API, features, samples, tutorials and other things that we’re going to present in near future.
The direction of future development of our Gantt component doesn’t completely depend on the ideas of our dev team. It’s important for us to get know what functionality you need, and where and how you’re going to use the component. Many plans in this roadmap were taken from forum, support tickets, feedback after evaluation and other sources.
And you’re also welcome to vote for the features you’d like to see first, tutorials and samples that would be most useful for you.
As you can see, sharing your ideas is really worthy. Thank you for your opinion and for staying with us.
Our team has developed several mini-components that won’t be officially included in the dhtmlxSuite package, but they represent some interesting and useful solutions that you can use in your apps. And today we are glad to introduce the first mini-component – dhtmlxDataSelector.
What is dhtmlxDataSelector?
1) Advanced searching for flexible work with the data.
This feature is really convenient if you have the database with a huge number of employees, their addresses and some other details. Based on your needs you can group the data and set any nesting level. View demo.
Yii is an open source and fast web application PHP framework. Yii includes a Web-based code generation tool called Gii which is used for quick generation of models, forms, modules, CRUD, etc. To extend the functionality of Gii, you can customize the existing code generators or write completely new generators based on your needs. We have chosen the second option.
And so, we’d like to introduce DHTMLX Many Tables Generator, a code generator for Yii Framework 2 that creates many editable tables from the database of your website. We use dhtmlxGrid library for created grids. As a result, you’ll get a ready CRUD admin panel.
We are glad to share one more DHTMLX tip, and this time you’ll know how to divide the buttons from toolbar into groups (grouped buttons also know as segmented button).
You can create several segmented buttons for a single toolbar. Only one button at a time can be pressed within the group. It provides you more abilities with dhtmlxToolbar: click on the screenshot below to open demo and you’ll see how these groups can be used in practice.
One more small DHTMLX tip with the help of which you’ll be able to close window (not collapse), but it will be still active and continue working on background.
Why does someone need it? It’ll save you from the necessity to load the definite part of information each time, i.e. the work with your app will render faster.
As a follow-up to our recent update of dhtmlxGantt, we’d like to elaborate more on new samples and features that were added to the version 3.2. We hope that it will show you how many cool things can be done with our Gantt Chart and assure you to continue or start using it.
We’ve already described such new features like tasks grouping and multi-task selection, so we won’t stop at them now and will proceed to some other updates. Click on the pictures or the links below them to open the samples and try all these features right now.
Adding custom buttons in dhtmlxGantt
You can add clickable buttons and icons to the left grid, as well as in the content of the task bars. For example, you can add the custom buttons for add/edit/delete operations directly to the task row in order to simplify the control upon the tasks by clicking on one button.
