Get Reference Point Data Example (C#)

This example shows how to get reference point data.

//----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Open a part, assembly, or drawing document that has a
//    reference point.
// 2. Select the reference point.
//
// Postconditions:
// 1. Selects the feature used to create the reference point.
// 2. Press F5 after each feature selection to continue.
// 3. Inspect the Immediate window.
