Split FeatureManager Design Tree and Position Splitter (C#)

This example shows how:
* to split a FeatureManager design tree.
* add a tab to one of the FeatureManager design trees.
* change the location of the split panel bar (splitter).

//----------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. In the IDE, reference Microsoft Calendar Control's
//    ActiveX control file:
//    a. Click Project > Add Reference > Browse tab.
//    b. Browse to:
//       c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\MSCAL.OCX
//       and click OK.
// 2. Specified part document and bitmap exist.
//
// Postconditions:
// 1. FeatureManager design tree is split, and the splitter is
//    below the FeatureManager design tree to which the
//    tab was added. Drag the splitter to verify.
// 2. Interactively close the part document.
// 3. Interactively initialize test to 1 in the macro.
// 4. Rerun the macro.
// 5. FeatureManager design tree is split, and the splitter is
//    above the FeatureManager design tree to which the
//    tab was added. Drag the splitter to verify.
//
// NOTE: Because the part document is used elsewhere,
// do not save any changes when closing it.
