L_AnnSetForeColor

#include "l_bitmap.h"

L_LTANN_API L_INT L_AnnSetForeColor(hObject, crFore, uFlags)

HANNOBJECT hObject;

handle to the annotation object

COLORREF crFore;

COLORREF value that specifies the foreground color

L_UINT uFlags;

flags that determine which objects to process

Sets the foreground color of one or more annotation objects. The default foreground color is red.

Parameter Description
hObject Handle to the annotation object.
crFore The COLORREF value that specifies the foreground color.
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_FOREGROUNDCOLOR menu item has been selected.

Returns

SUCCESS

The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

You use the Windows COLORREF data type to specify the color. For example, you can use the L_GetPixelColor function or the Windows RGB macro to get a color value.

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

To see how the foreground color relates to the fill modes, refer to Illustration of Fill Options for Annotations.

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.

      return nRet; 
   nRet = L_AnnSetForeColor (hAnnObject, ThisColor ^ 0x00FFFFFF, 0); 
   if(nRet != SUCCESS) 
      return nRet;
