In Resource view Gantt, we can add custom column in grid part and, we can add custom fields in task add/edit dialog. This can be done by using load event, getColumn and getResourceViewEditColumns methods. The below code example shows how to add custom column in grid part and custom field in add/edit dialogs.

<div id="resourceGantt" style="height:450px;width:100%;" />
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function () {
         dataSource: resourceGanttData,
         load: function () {
             this.getColumns()[0].width = 180;
             var customColumn = {
                 field: "taskCount",
                 mappingName: "taskCount",
                 allowEditing: false,
                 headerText: "Task Count",
                 isTemplateColumn: true,
                 template: "{{if eResourceTaskType=='resourceTask'}} <span style='padding:10px;'> {{:eResourceChildTasks.length}}</span> {{/if}}"
              var customTaskColumn= {field:"customColumn", mappingName:"customColumn", headerText:"Custom Column", editType:"numericedit"};
