Gantt diagrams allow to graphically display time oriented processes such as school and shift schedules, room or device occupancy, the administration of vehicle or vessel pools, landing and runway management in ports and airports, staff management and many other forms of project and resource management. Gantt diagrams visualize activities that depend on time.

With the options of a diagram generated by VARCHART JGantt even complex processes can be well structured and can be displayed clearly in their details. VARCHART JGantt has become an essential part of all kinds of administrative and organizational software. Graphical elements can interactively be modified by the user, which makes the VARCHART Gantt diagram a valuable planning tool of project managers.

By using VARCHART JGantt, with little effort you can provide configurable and interactive Gantt diagrams. Only a few mouse clicks are needed to add a simple diagram to an application. It can subsequently be turned into a highly sophisticated resource or project chart.

User interactions such as generating, deleting or moving activities are handled by the component and do not require additional programming. All interactions can be disabled via properties. Events are graded to allow VARCHART JGantt to react to each step a user takes. This allows you to tailor interactions precisely to the needs of your customer. For example, you can prevent users from moving activities into certain areas of the diagram or you can make the placement depend on criteria that you set. Over 100 parameters allow you to design the appearance of the Gantt diagram according to your user‘s special requirements. VARCHART JGantt can efficiently handle moving thousands of activities with only a minor impact on performance.

The calendar feature is one of the prominent features of VARCHART JGantt. In the calendar, you are able to set working and non-working periods, specific dates, events, holidays, etc. and then apply those dates and events to your data. The diagram will display the activities by showing breaks for the events that you set. You can use colors and patterns to distinguish different time aspects of your diagram. That way events that impact the schedule of a project can be recognized by users at a glance. You can also vary the time patterns from row to row in order to display the availability of individual resources. The interdependencies of the activities can be taken into account when the Gantt diagram is scheduled.

You can show time patterns that have been defined by the calendar in both the Gantt graph and the time scale. Special dates can be accentuated by date lines. With the time scale you can adjust various graphical options like scaling, time units, colors and fonts.

Scheduling functions are integrated features of VARCHART JGantt. For example, you can calculate the start and finish of a project or find the float for each activity in detail.

Dependencies such as whether one activity can start only after another finishes or whether an activity can not be completed until another one has started can be displayed using one of VARCHART JGantt‘s available link types. You determine how the link should appear using one of the four available link types.

VARCHART JGantt can display the workload of resources with histograms. Several curves can be positioned above each other. For example, the maximum workload of an engine can be displayed as a capacity curve superimposed on the actual workload. The areas between the two curves that indicate shortfall or excess of the maximum workload can be differentiated by different fill patterns. Histograms allow you to quickly adapt to needs in your enterprise by allowing you to project and prepare for resource shortfalls in advance.

There are several graphical elements that allow you to highlight dates in activities, point out specific things like milestones, or show a process‘s completion percentage.

Resources and activities can be set into groups that are formed by criteria you define. You can form any number of groups to any level. The order of activities can be defined by sorting criteria. You also can define a different appearance for each grouping level. Users have the convenience of being able to collapse or expand groups to allow them to view only the data they need to see.

VARCHART JGantt was written in the programming language of Java, so you can run it on any common operation system. The component can be configured at design time by dialogs or by a programming interface.
