Get and Set Connection Point Feature Example (C#)

This example shows how to get and set data for connection point features.

//----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Ensure that the latest SOLIDWORKS Design Library is loaded.
// 2. Drag and drop design library > routing > electrical > db9 male.sldprt
//    into the main view.
// 3. Observe CPoint1 in the FeatureManager design tree.
// 4. Run (F5) this macro.

// Postconditions:
// 1. Inspect the Immediate Window.
// 2. CPoint1 is now MyCPoint in the FeatureManager design tree.
//
// NOTE:  Because this is a Design Library part, close it without saving changes.
//
