L_LTANN_API L_INT L_AnnSetFillPattern(hObject, uFillPattern, uFlags)


handle to the annotation object

L_UINT uFillPattern;

constant that specifies the fill pattern

L_UINT uFlags;

flags that determine which objects to process

Sets the fill pattern of one or more annotation objects.

Parameter Description
hObject Handle to the annotation object.
uFillPattern The constant that specifies the fill pattern. Possible fill pattern values are:
  Value Meaning
  ANNPATTERN_BDIAGONAL [1] Backward diagonal
  ANNPATTERN_DIAGCROSS [3] Diagonal cross
  ANNPATTERN_FDIAGONAL [4] Forward diagonal
  To see the possible fill modes and patterns, refer to Illustration of Fill Options for Annotations.
uFlags Flags that determine which objects to process. Most of the flags apply only to container objects. You can combine values when appropriate by using a bitwise OR ( | ). The following are valid values:
  Value Meaning
  0 Process only the specified object.
  ANNFLAG_SELECTED [0x0001] Process only objects that have the selected property set to TRUE. For getting and setting the selected property, use the L_AnnGetSelected and L_AnnSetSelected functions.
  ANNFLAG_NOTTHIS [0x0004] Process only one level of objects within the specified container, not the container itself. If there are containers within the container, they are modified, but the objects within them are not.
  ANNFLAG_RECURSE [0x0008] Process objects within a container, and within any subcontainers, down to any level.
  ANNFLAG_NOTCONTAINER [0x0002] (Used with ANNFLAG_RECURSE) Process objects within containers, not the containers themselves.
  ANNFLAG_NOINVALIDATE [0x0010] Do not invalidate the affected rectangle in the window. Use this to avoid generating unwanted paint messages.
  ANNFLAG_CHECKMENU [0x0020] Process objects only if the ANNAUTOTEXT_MENU_FILL menu item has been selected.

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.


This function applies to multiple and selected objects based on values of the uFlags parameter.

This function does not affect objects that do not have this property or that do not let you change the property. For descriptions of the various types of objects and their properties, refer to Types of Annotations.
