DrawingPluginBaseDefineInput Method

The method Tekla Structures calls for the plug-in to query the input. The plug-in must then return an array list of input definition instances. The plug-in will be dependent on the items it returns. Dependent means that if any of these items change, for example the user moves the points, the plug-in will be re-run with new input. DefineInput is not called during the re-run, and thus all the actual implementation should be in the Run() method. The Run() method is always called in view coordinates.
