with new release of SAP UI5 (OpenUI5 Blog – First Preview of OpenUI5 1.34) there are some new controls available – one of them is Planning Calendar – see at OpenUI5 Explored. We have already Design Studio SDK: Activity Viewer (manual Gantt Chart) in community package which is serving with similar functions, this control can bring a bit different visualization.
* Works only with Design Studio 1.6 SP2 and higher!
* Works only in M mode (as this is M-control of UI5)
The good point on integration of UI5 controls is, due to the generation of integration code the effort to get it as SDK extension is very low – as described in Design Studio SDK: New Unified UI5 Components. It means, there is a need of very small adjustments and the rest is based on properties specified in UI5 definitions.

Options in Runtime/Properties
The general options allow you to set start date and also the view type (month, day, hour)
