This example shows how to display a temporary body.

//-------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Verify that the specified assembly document to
//    open exists.
// 2. Open the Immediate window.
//
// Postconditions:
// 1. Opens the specified assembly document.
// 2. Selects a component for the temporary body.
// 3. Displays the temporary body.
// 4. Examine the graphics area and the Immediate
//    window.
