'Declaration
Public Enumeration DependencyType
'Usage
Dim instance As DependencyType

Member nameDescription
FinishFinishValue=0. Finish to finish (FF) task link type. The successor task B cannot finish until the predecessor task A finishes.
FinishStartValue=1. This is the default value. Finish to start (FS) task link type. The predecessor task A must finish before the successor task B can start.
StartFinishValue=2. Start to finish (SF) task link type. The predecessor task A must start before the successor task B finishes. This is the least common of the four dependency types.
StartStartValue=3. Start to start (SS) task link type. The successor task B cannot start until the predecessor task A starts.

For an example of the SF task dependency type, in a scenario where you are setting a fence post, the successor task B is Pour Cement and the predecessor task A is Set Post.

The successor (Pour Cement) must start first; however, the predecessor (Set Post) must finish before the successor (Pour Cement) finishes.

The DependencyType enumeration in the CSOM is equivalent to the LINK_TYPE property in the Project service. The DependencyType constants can be used with the following properties:
