Modify Derived Part Example (C#)

This example shows how to insert and modify a derived part.

//-----------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Verify that the part documents to open and insert exist.
// 2. Open the Immediate window.
//
// Postconditions:
// 1. Opens the specified part document.
// 2. Inserts a derived part in the part document
//    opened in step 1.
// 3. Changes some parameters of the derived part feature.
// 4. Examine the Immediate window.
//
// NOTE: Because both part documents are used elsewhere,
// do not save any changes.
