#include "l_bitmap.h"

L_LTANN_API L_INT L_AnnGetTicMarkLength(hObject, pdLength)

HANNOBJECT hObject;

handle to the annotation automation object

L_DOUBLE *pdLength;

address of the variable to be updated

Gets the length of the tic mark of an ANNOBJECT_RULER or ANNOBJECT_POLYRULER. The tic marks are the perpendicular lines that measure the units.

Parameter

Description

hObject

Handle to the annotation automation object.

pdLength

Address of the variable to be updated with the object's tic mark length.

Returns

SUCCESS

The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

The tic mark length applies only to the following annotation objects:

ANNOBJECT_AUTOMATION

ANNOBJECT_RULER

ANNOBJECT_POLYRULER

The dLength parameter is expressed in pixels, not in points. The length is for the whole line, not just from the intersection point with the ruler to the end point of the tic mark - it is from one end of the tic mark to the other end of the tic mark.

Note that a ruler can have tic marks of different lengths. For Example, the ruler in the figure below has tic marks with several different lengths. In this case, pdLength is updated with the length of the longest tic mark.
