 1// create some polyline options for creating the new alignment
 2PolylineOptions plops = new PolylineOptions();
 3plops.AddCurvesBetweenTangents = true;
 4plops.EraseExistingEntities = true;
 5plops.PlineId = res.ObjectId;

 7// uses an existing Alignment Style and Label Set Style named "Standard" (for example, from
 8// the Civil 3D (Imperial) NCS.dwt template.  This call will fail if the named styles
