Get and Add Sketch Points in Hole Wizard Feature Example (C#)

This example shows how to get and add the sketch points in a Hole Wizard feature.

//------------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Verify that the specified part document template exists.
// 2. Open the Immediate window.
//
// Postconditions:
// 1. Creates a new part document.
// 2. Creates Boss-Extrude1 and #0-80 Tapped Hole1 features.
// 3. Selects #8-80 Tapped Hole1; i.e., the Hole Wizard feature.
// 4. Gets the number of sketch points in the Hole Wizard feature.
// 5. Adds two sketch points to the Hole Wizard feature; thus, adds two more
//    holes to the Hole Wizard feature.
// 6. Examine the Immediate window and graphics area.
