The method makes sense only if work_time is set to 'true'. Otherwise, the method will be ignored.

The default working time is the following:

  • Working days: Monday - Friday.
  • Working hours: 08:00 - 17:00.

The method is used to alter the default settings.

Note, each next call of the method for the same date will re-write the previous working-time rule:

//the result of following commands will be the working time 13:00-17:00
//and not a mixin of both commands

Configuration object properties

The configuration object can contain the following properties:

Property Description
day a number of a week day [0 (Sunday) - 6 (Saturday)]. Note, you can set only 1 day at once
//makes all Mondays day-offs
gantt.setWorkTime({ day:1, hours:false });
date a specific date to set as a working day or day off
//makes a specific date a day-off
gantt.setWorkTime({date:new Date(2013,0,1), hours:false})
hours an array of working hours as 'from'-'to' pairs.
'false' value sets a day-off, 'true' (default value) applies the default hours (["8:00-17:00"])
//sets the working time for Fridays from 8:00 till 12:00
gantt.setWorkTime({day : 5, hours : ["8:00-12:00"]});
