Get Centers of Mass in Drawing Views Example (VBA)

This example shows how to get the centers of mass in drawing views.

'----------------------------------------------------------------------
' Preconditions: Open a drawing that has one or more centers of mass.
'
' Postconditions: Inspect the Immediate window for the coordinates of
' all of the centers of mass in all of the views of the
' drawing.
