How do I get multiple rows on my timeline?

    The default arrangement for a timeline object is the single row with bubble events.

    To create a grid-like timeline with multiple rows, you can override the default in AddTimeline()


    Then add rows using the Timeline method AddGridRow(Name). This labels the first row. Use additional calls to add more rows labeled with a name you specify.

    The label will be shown in the left column of the grid. Here's a quick code snippet that may help:

    var myDocument=new VS.Document();
    var rootShape=myDocument.GetTheShape();
    var myTimeline=rootShape.AddTimeline(VS.Timeline_Arrangements.Grid1);
    myTimeline.AddGridRow("IT Department");

    The timeline will look like this.

    Hope this helps.
