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

To create a start-to-start 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 double-click on the Level the concrete 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 drop-down arrow from the Predecessor Task Name: and select the predecessor task, for example, Pour the foundation.
  4. Select Start-to-Start (FS) from the Predecessor Type.
    This predecessor type implies that the dependent task, Level the concrete, can start any time after the task, Pour the foundation that it depends on begins.
  5. Click OK to apply the changes and close the Task Information dialog box.

This topic illustrates the following:

The dependent task, Level concrete, can start at any time after the, Pour the foundation, task that it depends on begins. A downward arrow is drawn to illustrate the link between the two tasks.
