Summary0000504: User color coding for completed tasks - print Gantt chart?
DescriptionSorry. I've got a long swing on this one.

The color coding is the primary feature of this issue.

In summary, it would be appreciated by the management to recognize the progress of each task description with a color as sometimes the Gantt bar doesn't let see the progress clearly espacially for short tasks.

eg: Green = completed
     Yellow = in progress
     Red = over due
     
and if possible use a background color rather than a font color as show in the tasks lists.

Also, add the progress % column.

I will open 2 other issues later on.

Thanks
Additional InformationPrevious issue body:

Hi,

My boss recently had requested me to prepare a Gantt chart of a project by "highlighting" completed tasks. We all know the bars should show this, but sometimes, the bar are so thin we can barely see. You have to know the project is spanned over 7 months, and some tasks last 2 hours so you can imagine that the Gantt scaling doesn't show everything.

I tweaked my own solution by doing three things:

1. Set the task color to green when completed
2. Add the task_percent_complete column
3. Put the project_percent_complete between parenthesis beside the project name

This way, management have a better visual overview of the project amplitude and its progress.

I would have prefered to set a background color to express the tasks progress/completion as we can see in the tasks list, but I couldn't use the SetBackgroundColor in jpGraph. Maybe it's not available. If feasible, I thought this would be great.

I also noticed in 2.0 that the time scaling has been messed-up when showing the whole project spanned in 7 months. The months are readable, but not the dates/weeks. In previous versions, the date line used to be hidden when the time spanning exeeded a specific period.

And for a long long time, we never really been able to translate the months captions. This is not a huge issue. We used to have this in dP although the UTF-8 factor used to mess-up everything.

And finally, I made a little twist of saving the Gantt body as an image by doing a right click on it, then used Paint and printed to a multiple page wide PDF. This works, but a little cumbersome for the common man. A print function or export to PDF would be appreciated. But, no rush on this one.

Thanks

At present, this is difficult to triage. Can you break this into multiple issues? It looks like you have one suggestion, one annoyance/bug, and one feature request.

Thanks!
