Dear experts,

I  have the following code to draw a gantt chart and need to make certain milestones conditional. They should only be visible if the date values or not null.

I tried the following as you can see in my code but the code is false and not interpreted anymore. Can you pleas give me an example of how I can add new TaskItems conditionally?

I appreciate your help!

Many tahnsk,

Hi boogiefromzk!

Thanks for your help! Well, I tried your code and the chart is displayed. However, even if 'P1112_GP_AUFTAKT_START' is null, the line gets displayed. It seems to me as if the value of  my element 'P1112_GP_AUFTAKT_START' is not fetched correctly.

Any other ideas?

Thank you!
