L_AnnGetTextRTF

#include "l_bitmap.h"

L_LTANN_API L_INT L_AnnGetTextRTF(hObject, uFormat, pText, puLen)

Gets the text and text length (unformatted text or rich text) of an ANNOBJECT_RTF or ANNOBJECT_AUTOMATION annotation object.

Parameters

HANNOBJECT hObject

Handle to the ANNOBJECT_RTF object.

L_UINT uFormat

Value that specifies the text format type. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
RTFFORMAT_TEXT [0x0001] Retrieve the text as unformatted text.
RTFFORMAT_RTF [0x0002] Retrieve the text as rich text.

L_TCHAR * pText

Pointer to a character string to be updated with the annotation object's character string. This value can be NULL.

L_SIZE_T * puLen

Address of the variable to be updated with the length of the object's character string.

Returns

Value Meaning
SUCCESS The function was successful.
< 1 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

This function is used to retrieve the text from an ANNOBJECT_RTF or ANNOBJECT_AUTOMATION object. The text can be retrieved either as rich text, or unformatted text.

Call this function twice. On the first call, pass NULL for the pText argument to get length of the required input buffer. Then, allocate a buffer and call the function a second time to retreive the text. The following code snippet illustrates the process:

HANNOBJECT hObject;  // assume this is a valid ANNOBJECT_RTF object   
L_UINT uLength;   
L_TCHAR *pText;   
 
// Get the length   
L_AnnGetTextRTF( hObject, RTFFORMAT_RTF, NULL, &uLength);   
 
// Allocate a buffer   
pText = (L_TCHAR *)malloc ( (uLength+1) * sizeof (L_TCHAR) );   
 
// Retrieve the text   
L_AnnGetTextRTF( hObject, RTFFORMAT_RTF, pText, &uLength); 

To get or set the text of other text objects, see the documentation for L_AnnGetTextLen, L_AnnGetText and L_AnnSetText.

Example

This sample gets the text from Rich Text annotation object in one of two formats (text, or rich text) hObject: the Rich Text annotation object uFormat: the format of the retrieved text--one of RTFFORMAT_TEXT RTFFORMAT_RTF

L_INT AnnGetTextRTFExample(HANNOBJECT hObject, 
                                          L_UINT     uFormat) 
{ 
   L_INT nRet; 
   L_SIZE_T zLength; 
   L_TCHAR* pText; 
   L_TCHAR  szMsg[200]; 
   L_TCHAR* pszFormat; 
 
   switch(uFormat) 
   { 
   case RTFFORMAT_TEXT: 
      pszFormat = TEXT("RTFFORMAT_TEXT"); 
      break; 
 
   case RTFFORMAT_RTF: 
      pszFormat = TEXT("RTFFORMAT_RTF"); 
      break; 
 
   default: 
      return 0; 
      break; 
   } 
 
   // Get the length 
   nRet = L_AnnGetTextRTF( hObject, uFormat, NULL, &zLength); 
   if (nRet != SUCCESS) 
      return nRet; 
 
   pText = (L_TCHAR *)malloc( (zLength + 1) * sizeof(L_TCHAR) ); 
   nRet = L_AnnGetTextRTF( hObject, uFormat, pText, &zLength); 
   if (nRet == SUCCESS) 
   { 
      wsprintf(szMsg, TEXT("Format: %s\nLength: %d"), pszFormat, zLength); 
      MessageBox(NULL, szMsg, TEXT("L_AnnGetTextRTF")/*pText, szMsg*/, MB_OK); 
   } 
   else 
   { 
      return nRet; 
   } 
 
   free(pText); 
   return SUCCESS; 
}
