Get Notes from New or Existing Title Block (C#)

This example shows how to create a title block in a drawing, if one does not already exist, and how to get the notes from an existing title block in a drawing.

//--------------------------------------------------------

// Preconditions: Drawing document is open.

//

// Postconditions: If the drawing contains a title block, then

//                 the notes of that block are printed

//                 to the Immediate window. If not,

//                 a title block is created.
