Get Projected Curve Feature Data Example (VB.NET)

This example shows how to get data for a projected curve feature.

' Preconditions:
' 1. Verify that the part document exists.
' 2. Open the Immediate window.
' Postconditions:
' 1. Opens the specified part document.
' 2. Selects a face and sketches a spline on that face.
' 3. Selects the sketch of the spline and a face.
' 4. Inserts a projected curve feature.
' 5. Gets some projected curve feature data and prints it
'    to the Immediate window.
' 6. Examine the Immediate window, FeatureManager design tree, and
'    the graphics area.
' NOTE: Because the part is used elsewhere, do not save changes.
