Get and Set Spline Handles Example (C#)

This example shows how to get and set the properties of spline handles in a 2D spline.

//----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Verify that the specified document template exists.
// 2. Open an Immediate window.
//
// Postconditions:
// 1. Creates Sketch1 in the graphics area and FeatureManager design tree.
// 2. Modifies some of the spline handles of Sketch1.
// 3. Inspect the Immediate window.
