AnnTextPointerObject Object

Summary

Defines an annotation stamp object text pointer object.

Syntax
TypeScript
JavaScript
function lt.Annotations.Engine.AnnTextPointerObject 
	extends lt.Annotations.Engine.AnnTextObject 
	implements IAnnObjectCloneable 
class lt.Annotations.Engine.AnnTextPointerObject() 
	extends AnnTextObject 
	implements IAnnObjectCloneable 
Remarks

The text pointer annotation object extends the AnnTextObject class by providing an extra line that starts from one of the four corners of the bounding rectangle, around the text. The other endpoint of the line can be moved to point to anything on the underlying image. This extra endpoint may or may not be fixed, depending on the FixedPointer value.

Programmatically, the boundaries and location of the text pointer object can be controlled using the following properties:

The AnnTextPointerObject class inherits a number of properties from the AnnObject class, providing support for font, stroke and fill characteristics. These properties are listed below:

The AnnTextPointerObject inherits a number of text properties from the AnnTextObject class that provide support for text alignment, margins, etc. These properties are listed below:

The name of the text pointer object can be controlled using Labels property, inherited from the AnnObject class. Each object can be transformed with the following methods:

The following properties can also be used to programmatically set characteristics of an AnnTextPointerObject:

Example

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