Get Properties of Sketch Pattern Feature Example (C#)

This example shows how to get the properties of a sketch pattern feature.

//----------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Verify that the specified document exists.
// 2. Open an Immediate window.
//
// Postconditions:
// 1. Creates Boss-Extrude2Sketch3, and Sketch-Pattern1.
// 2. Inspect the Immediate window.
//
// NOTE: Because the model is used elsewhere, do not save changes.
