This example creates a text object and adds it to the automation container.

JavaScript Example
// assumes _automation is valid 
var inch = 720.0; 
// Add a text object 
var textObj = new lt.Annotations.Engine.AnnTextObject(); 
// Set the points for the hotspot 
textObj.get_points().add(lt.LeadPointD.create(1 * inch, 1 * inch)); 
textObj.get_points().add(lt.LeadPointD.create(2 * inch, 1 * inch)); 
textObj.get_points().add(lt.LeadPointD.create(2 * inch, 2 * inch)); 
textObj.get_points().add(lt.LeadPointD.create(1 * inch, 2 * inch)); 
// Set the text 
textObj.set_text("sample text for object\nsecond line of text\nlast line"); 
// Add the object to the automation container 
// Select the object
