Closed Curve Annotation Object

(Document and Medical Imaging toolkits)

The Closed Curve annotation object (ANNOBJECT_CURVECLOSED) is a sequence of points that are joined by cubic polynomials such that adjacent polynomials are continuous at the first and second derivates. Unlike the Curve annotation object, the first and last endpoints are also joined by a curve. The result is a smooth, continuous closed curve going through all the points.

With the automated functions, each curve is formed with a mouse click, and the object is completed on a double click.

You can change the points using the L_AnnGetPoints and the L_AnnSetPoints functions.

With low-level functions, you must provide the points that define the shape of the object. Other applicable properties have the following defaults, which you can change:

Property Defaults
Visible Defaults to FALSE. It can be changed using the L_AnnSetVisible function.
Selected Defaults to FALSE. It can be changed using the L_AnnSetSelected function.
Name Defaults to an empty string. It can be changed using the L_AnnSetNameOptions function.
Line width Defaults to 0.75 points. It can be changed using the L_AnnSetLineWidth function. (Note that when displayed, the line must have a minimum width of 1 pixel.)
Line style Defaults to solid. It can be changed using the L_AnnSetLineStyle function.
ROP2 code Defaults to ANNROP2_COPY. It can be changed using the L_AnnSetROP2 function.
Fill pattern Defaults to solid. It can be changed using the L_AnnSetFillPattern function.
Fill mode Defaults to transparent. It can be changed using the L_AnnSetFillMode function. Before calling this function enable the alpha background fill mode by calling the L_AnnSetOptions function.
Polygon fill mode Defaults to winding. It can be changed using the L_AnnSetPolyFillMode function.
Foreground color Defaults to red. It can be changed using the L_AnnSetForeColor function.
Background color Defaults to white. It can be changed using the L_AnnSetBackColor function. The default does not affect highlight, redaction, or note objects.
Nodes Defaults to displaying every node. It can be changed using the L_AnnSetNodes function.
Fixed State Defaults to not fixed. It can be changed using the L_AnnSetFixed function.
Hyperlink Defaults to None. It can be changed using the L_AnnSetHyperlink function.
Tag (identifier) Defaults to 0. It can be changed using the L_AnnSetTag function.
Window handle Defaults to NULL or the handle inherited from the container. It can be changed for all objects using the L_AnnSetWnd function.
User mode Defaults to design mode or the mode inherited from the container. It can be changed for all objects using the L_AnnSetUserMode function.
