Are you looking for a quick way to visualize the data from your planning application in a user-friendly, intelligent Gantt chart or planning board? Use our Visual Scheduling Widget. It offers you great flexibility for your individual design, because you control the widget via the API and thus control the appearance and functionality of the planning board.
This example of a production planning board was realized with the help of our Visual Scheduling Widget - Standard Edition. You can see functions such as order links, shifting aids, flexible time scales, histograms and more. Start the demo app and get a first impression of what you can do with the widget. The functions are explained in a "Read me" document.
"Three essential points that led us to use the widget from NETRONIC for our detailed planning component: the freedom of design that we gained with the widget, the very close exchange when it came to the composition of the widget, and the good coordination during the planning phase and during the implementation in our product"
- Dr. Adrian Bock from INFORM.
"The context menu, which has up to three levels, is of paramount importance to us. It is designed to enable jumps and shorten typical work steps"
- Andreas Siemoneit from Softsite.
Here are five selected scheduling samples
Our customers normally use a dynamic timescale that automatically (by mouse-wheel interaction) adjusts to the selected solution, so that the planner can zoom in and out seamlessly. The timescale changes in both directions: from years to months, to weeks, to days, to hours, to minutes, and to seconds. The timescale even allows to scroll left and right.
The benefit of a histogram is obvious: Capacity conflicts at a resource or resource group immediately become apparent. Up to now, histograms were usually shown below the diagram. However, some of our customers want to show histograms within a diagram row, thus shaping the link between allocation and availability more directly. More ideas about how to visualize capacity loads you will find in this blog post.
Complex projects are split into many subprojects with many subtasks. In order not to lose the connection between the task packages and the time overview, links and totals bars belong to the standard visualization of project planning boards. With the Visual Scheduling Widget you can visualize total bars and different links.
Small functions sometimes have great impact. Especially when it comes to expand or collapse bigger groups, users often lose their “visual bearings”. Built-in animations, especially when switching between “showing all nodes in one row” and expanded view, let the user always understand what’s happening on the screen.
Backlogs are great tools for giving the planner an overview of unassigned and already assigned tasks, orders or resources and placing them using drag & drop. A second table can be used to create such a backlog. Various other forms of backlog visualization are described in this blogpost.
The general architecture of the Visual Scheduling Widget - Standard Edition is based on the following principles:
1. The widget does not manage data within the Gantt chart. All data management functions as well as the
corresponding business logic takes place within the customer application.
2. Almost every mouse click on a graphical object (e.g. a Gantt chart bar or a resource row) in the file
The VSW SE triggers a bidirectional communication between the VSW SE and the application.
(see "Callback actions" and "Options/methods" in the following graphic).
3. This bidirectional communication leads to an exchange of objects, as you can see in the graphic.

Visual Scheduling Widget - Standard Edition
Visual Scheduling Widget as defined in FDD und IDD
Integration support (budget of max. 16 hrs.)
One time fee (perpetual) per end-customer:
Maintenance and support /year, including:
- widget bugfixing
- technical support
- adaption to new browser versions
- new widget versions
We want you to a) save time with our widget and b) develop a user-friendly HTML5 Gantt Chart that will delight your users. We have equipped the widget with a comprehensive package of functions that "almost" leaves nothing to be desired in terms of visualization, is easy to integrate and easy to use.
But if you have a very special visualization request, we are prepared to develop an individual jQuery UI Gantt widget. We would be happy to discuss your requirements with you.
