L_LTANN_API L_INT L_AnnInsertTextTokenTable(hAutomation, pTextToken)

HANNOBJECT hAutomation;

handle to the annotation automation object

pANNTEXTTOKEN pTextToken;

pointer to a structure that defines the text token

Inserts a text token into the text token table.

Parameter

Description

hAutomation

Handle to the annotation automation object.

pTextToken

Pointer to a structure that defines the text token table to insert.

Returns

SUCCESS

The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

The text token table is stored in the automation object, so this function is valid only for the ANNOBJECT_AUTOMATION annotation object.

This function inserts a token defined by pTextToken into the text token table. If the token already exists, the existing token is overwritten. If the token does not already exist, it is created.

The text token table can be displayed by performing the following steps:

1.

Right-click on a Button, Note, PushPin, Rubber Stamp, Stamp, Text, or Text Pointer annotation object.

2.

Select Text option in menu that appears.

3.

Click the Insert Token button. A menu for the existing text token table appears, as shown in the following figure:

4.

Select the token to be inserted.

Note that the text token table above contains a separator. To add a separator, set TextToken as shown in the following code:

ANNTEXTTOKEN TextToken;
TextToken.nSize = sizeof(ANNTEXTTOKEN);
TextToken.cToken = 0;
TextToken.nTokenType = ANNTOKEN_SEPARATOR;

For a sample that illustrates how to define the text token table depicted above, see the Example.

Example

This Example defines a new user token to display the current date in mm/dd/yyyy format It defines a second token for company name

D is the token

Add this sample to the main annotation demo After running this sample: 1. Draw a text box
2. Right-click the text box
3. Display the text dialog
4. Click the "Insert Token" button
5. Choose the newly-defined tokens
