Examples
The following example enumerates through all marks in all views and changes their frame types to sharpened and their frame colors to red.
using Tekla.Structures.Drawing;

public class Example
{
       public void Example1()
       {
           DrawingHandler MyDrawingHandler = new DrawingHandler();
           if(MyDrawingHandler.GetConnectionStatus())
           {
               MarkBase MyMarkBase;
               DrawingObjectEnumerator views = MyDrawingHandler.GetActiveDrawing().GetSheet().GetAllViews();
               while(views.MoveNext())
               {
