[rt-users] Questions about JSGantt Plugin for RT

Kevin - Thanks:

When we run the Gantt chart, every ticket is coming out to the default day length, 7. I edited the JSGantt.pm file to add some debugging output. They we assuming that the dates would be when the ticket was opened and then last resolved. Based on how _GetTimeRange operates, we never get an "end date" so it always defaults. Is the way the duration is calculated in _GetTimeRange how a Gantt chart is made? Is there a reason as to why those are the criteria for the duration calculation? As I said, Gantt charts are foreign to me & I've been too busy to do any research on them. It may very well be that we're looking for something specific & not an error in the plug in at all.

I'm not sure what you mean by "nor will anyone here explain how a gantt chart gets created".  I see no questions from your with a subject containing Gantt other than this question and I keep a 2 year archive of the list.  You do ask a lot of questions, so it may have been lost.

You should just ask your question here or on rt-devel.  JSGantt is written by Best Practical so if a relevant engineer has time they can answer a specific question about that function.
