Get Broken-Out Section Feature Data Example (C#)

This example shows how to get broken-out section feature data from a drawing view.

//----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions: Open a drawing that contains a view with a broken-out
// section feature.
//
// Postconditions:
// 1. Inspect the Immediate window.
// 2. The radius of the broken-out section is increased.
// ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
