TimelineSpan - Global

This class defines a set of properties that describe the characteristics and interactive behavior of an element rendered within a TimelineItem.

Since it is extremely important for all of a TimelineItem's collection of spans to be unique, the creation of a new instance should be performed via the createTimelineItem method of an existing TimelineIteminstance.

TimelineSpan - addPredecessor(Object Array objArray)

Adds multiple relationships between the current instance and other TimelineSpan objects by enumerating through the array of JavaScript objects. Each object should have an internal property relationship_sys_id and predecessor_sys_id specified.

Each object should have an internal property relationship_sys_id and predecessor_sys_id specified.
