This example shows how to check in several files in one batch.

NOTE: If using the .NET Framework 4.0 primary interop assembly provided with SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM, see Using .NET Framework 4.0 in Stand-alone Applications.

//----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Start Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.
//    a. Click File > New > Project > Visual C# > Windows Forms Application.
//    b. Type BatchUnlockFiles_CSharp in Name.
//    c. Click Browse and navigate to the folder where to create the project.
//    d. Click OK.
//    e. Click Show All Files in the Solution Explorer toolbar and expand
//       Form1.cs in the Solution Explorer.
//    f. Replace the code in Form1.cs with this code.
//    g. To create the form, replace the code in Form1.Designer.cs with
//       this code.
// 2. Add EPDM.Interop.epdm.dll as a reference (right-click the project
//    name in the Solution Explorer, click Add Reference, click
//    Assemblies > Framework in the left-side panel, browse to the top folder of
//    your SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM installation, locate and click
//    EPDM.Interop.epdm.dll, click Open, and click Add).
// 3. Add Microsoft.VisualBasic as a reference (click 
//    COM in the left-side panel, click 
//    Microsoft.VisualBasic, click Add, and click Close).
// 4. Right-click EPDM.Interop.epdm in References, click Properties, and set
//    Embed Interop Types to False to handle methods that pass arrays of
//    structures.
// 5. Check out a vault file.
// 6. Click Debug > Start Debugging or press F5.
//
// Postconditions: 
// 1. Displays the Check In Files dialog box.
//    a. Select a vault view.
//    b. Click Select files to check out from vault.
//    c. In the Select File dialog:
