Get Whether Components Are Loaded Example (VB.NET)

This example gets whether the components in an assembly document are loaded.

' Preconditions:
' 1. Verify that the specified assembly document exists.
' 2. Open the Immediate window.
' Postconditions:
' 1. Loads the Magnet-1 component.
' 2. Examine the Immediate window.

' NOTE: Because this assembly document is used elsewhere,
' do not save changes.
