Get Section View Data Example (C#)

This example shows how to get the data for a section view in a part.

//-------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Open public_documents\samples\tutorial\cosmosxpress\aw_rubber_duct.sldprt.
// 2. Create a section view with three sections:
//    a. Right-click Front in the FeatureManager design tree
//       and click Section View.
//    b. Set X Rotation to 45.00deg in Section 1.
//    c. Select Section 2, click Top, and
//       set X Rotation to 45.00deg.
//    d. Select Section 3, click Right, and
//       set X Rotation to 45.00deg.
//    e. Click Save twice.
// 3. Click View > Display > Section View twice.
// 4. Open the Immediate window.
//
// Postconditions:
// 1. Gets and prints data about each section in
//    the section view to the Immediate window.
// 2. Examine the Immediate window.
//
// NOTE: Because the part is used elsewhere, do not save changes.
