My boss has asked me to write a Lite version of Microsoft Project. It will contain just a few basic functions. If you look at the left side of a MS Project screenshot, you will see where they show Task Name, Duration, etc. I assume a listview would be ok to use there. On the right side, where you see the date span information - what controls would you suggest I use there? I just want suggestions on how you guys would handle that.
I was hoping to databind the left side to a database but I guess VB doesn't allow databinding in a listview. So far I have created a SQL database to store TaskNumber, TaskName, Who, Duration, Start, Finish, Dependancy.
I know there are free Project apps out there, but he wants me to write our own.
Thanks in advance.
Edit: included a pic of what i have so far (using a Split container control)
