Hi David,

function setRelatedList($moduleInstance, $label='', $actions=false,

In case you need to filter the records, I would suggest you to create a
function 'custom_related_list' in your module and
register it by passing the last argument to setRelatedList.

get_related_list function is made available through data/CRMEntity.php
