Illustration of Fill Options for Annotations

Previous versions of LEADTOOLS supported annotations with translucent backgrounds. An alpha option allows you to specify an alpha value from 0 (completely transparent background) to 255 (completely opaque background) inclusive.

When enabled using the LAnnotation::SetOptions function, you can right-click an annotation object to display the Fill dialog with the new alpha option. Here you can enter an alpha value from 0 to 255 inclusive.  This figure displays the Fill dialog for the Stamp object.

The following figure displays rectangle annotation objects using different alpha values:
