Get Whether Components Are Loaded Example (C#)

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.
