Details

This functionality is available in the PRO edition only.

The method requires the ext/dhtmlxgantt_auto_scheduling.js to be included on the page.

Each element of the cycles array is a group of tasks and links which make a loop.

[ 
    { 
        tasks: [//ids of tasks connected in a loop], 
        links: [//ids of links connected in a loop]
    },
    {
 
        tasks: [...], 
        links: [...]
    }
]

Have a look at the example below:

  • The Task #3 has the id = 10
  • The Task #4.1 has the id = 12
  • The Link from the end of Task #3 to the start of Task #4 has the id = 1
  • The Link from the end of Task #4.1 to the start of Task #3 has the id = 2

The gantt.findCycles method will return the following value:

[ 
    { 
        tasks: ["10", "12"], 
        links: ["1", "2"]
    }
]
