Assigns the default properties of the specified automation object to an annotation object.


#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual L_INT LAnnotation::SetAutoDefaults(hAutoObject, uFlags=0)

virtual L_INT LAnnotation::SetAutoDefaults(AnnAuto, uFlags=0)



Handle to an automation object.

LAnnAutomation& AnnAuto

The automation object.

L_UINT 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 LAnnContainer::GetSelectItems and LAnnotation::SetSelected 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.


Value Meaning
SUCCESS The function was successful.
< 1 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.


This function simulates the action that takes place when an annotation object is created using the automated mode. An annotation object created in automated mode receives the same default properties as the automation object, such as foreground color, line width, etc. This lets you assign the same default properties in an automation object to the specified annotation object.

Required DLLs and Libraries


Win32, x64.

This is an example, for both:
LAnnotation::SetAutoDefaults( HANNOBJECT hAutoObject, L_UINT uFlags=0)
LAnnotation::SetAutoDefaults( LAnnAutomation &AnnAuto, L_UINT uFlags=0)

L_INT LAnnotation_SetAutoDefaultsExample() 
   L_TCHAR szFontName[100]; 
   L_UINT  uLen = 0; 
   LAnnAutomation AnnAutomation; 
   LAnnNote MyNote; 
   //Automation default font is set to Courier 
   //Another way 
   MyNote.GetFontName(szFontName, &uLen); 
   //Note font name is same as Automation (Courier) 
   return SUCCESS;
