GanttView for WinForms Task-Based Help > Creating Predecessors > Creating a Finish to Finish Predecessor Type

To create a finish-to-finish predecessor type, use the Task Information dialog box at run time like the following:

  1. Double click on the task bar you wish to create the predecessor type in the chart view area, for example, Snap together poles task.
    The cursor icon will change once you place it over the desired task bar.

    The Task Information dialog box appears once you double-click the desired task.
  2. Select the Predecessors tab and click the Add button.
  3. Click the dropdown arrow from the Predecessor Task Name: and select the predecessor task, for example, Set up inner tent.
  4. Select Finish-to-Finish (FS) from the Predecessor Type.
    This predecessor type implies that the dependent task, Snap together poles, can’t finish until the ,Set up inner tent, task finishes.
  5. Click OK to apply the changes and close the Task Information dialog box.

This topic illustrates the following:

The dependent task, Snap together poles, can start at any time after the Set up inner tent task that it depends on begins. A downward arrow is drawn to illustrate the link between the two tasks.
