Set Viewports Example (C#)

This example shows how to set viewports and check and change whether they're linked.

//--------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Open install_dir\samples\tutorial\introtosw\pressure_plate.sldprt.
// 2. Set some breakpoints (e.g., before and after panning the viewports).
// 3. Open the Immediate window.
// 4. Press F5 at each breakpoint.
//
// Postconditions:
// 1. Sets viewport arrangement to Two View-Horizontal (* Top viewport is
//    panned; bottom viewport also panned because it is linked to top
//    viewport).
// 3. Unlinks viewports (Top viewport is panned; bottom view isn't panned
//    because viewports were unlinked).
// 4. Sets viewport arrangement to a single viewport.
// 5. Examine the Immediate window.
//
// NOTE: Because this part is used elsewhere, do not save changes.
