L_AnnGetMetafile

#include "l_bitmap.h"

L_LTANN_API L_INT L_AnnGetMetafile(hObject, phMetafile)

HANNOBJECT hObject;

handle to the annotation object

HMETAFILE *phMetafile;

pointer to a variable to be updated with the handle to a metafile

Retrieves the metafile handle associated with a stamp object (including the Rubber Stamp tools), encrypt object, hotspot object, or freehand hotspot object.

Parameter

Description

hObject

Handle to the annotation object.

phMetafile

Pointer to a variable to be updated with the handle to a metafile.

Returns

SUCCESS

The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

If this function is successful, the address pointed to by phMetafile will be updated with the metafile handle.

The Stamp object (which includes the Rubber Stamp tools) can display text, a bitmap or a metafile. Only one of these three can be displayed at any timesetting the object to one of these destroys any settings for the other two.

Initially, the Stamp object displays text. The difference between the Stamp and the Rubber Stamp is that initially whereas the Stamp does not display an image, the Rubber Stamp tools are set to display different metafiles (one for each rubber stamp selection).

Initially, the Hotspot, Freehand Hotspot, and Encrypt objects are also set to display predefined metafiles.

Call the L_AnnGetMetafile function to retrieve a metafile for an object. Call the L_AnnSetMetafile function to change the metafile for an object. Any new objects will still get the default metafile.

Example

This example enumerates through all of the annotations in a container and retrieves the metafiles for the stamp, hotspot, and freehand hotspot objects.
