An annotation is comprised of vectored elements that can be overlaid upon an image. LEADTOOLS annotations are stored separately from the object associated with it. By convention, the file uses the same name as the image associated with it, but uses a different extension.
While many assemblies and classes support annotations and annotation conversion, the main assemblies are as follows:
The Leadtools.Annotations.BatesStamp library contains classes, enumerations, interfaces, and objects supporting Bates stamp (automatic numbering) annotations.
The Leadtools.Annotations.Engine assembly provides the core classes for LEADTOOLS annotation support. These include annotation objects, interfaces for annotation renderers, and helper classes. Sensitive information can be protected with the redaction and encryption objects.
Leadtools.Annotations.Engine.AnnCodecs. The AnnCodecs class of the Leadtools.Annotations.Engine supports loading and saving annotation objects from/to XML strings as well as getting information about previously saved annotations data. It also supports saving and loading multipage annotation data where each page contains a full Annotation Container.
FileNet P8 and Daeja Annotations Support. The AnnCodecs class also supports importing from and exporting to the IBM FileNet P8 and Daeja annotation formats. It includes methods for converting from and to IBMP8, as well as ones for converting from and to IBMDaeja. For more information,refer to FileNet P8 and Daeja Annotations Support.
The Leadtools.Annotations.Engine assembly can load many types of annotations. However, certain formats require the Leadtools.Annotations.Legacy.dll as well. This DLL is required by the <INSTALLDIR>\Examples\DotNet\CS\AnnConversionDemo For more information, refer to Annotations Support.
The Leadtools.Dicom.Annotations assembly contains the DicomAnnotationsUtilities class, which supports conversions between LEAD's implementation of the DICOM annotation format and LEAD's own annotation format. For more information, refer to Working with DICOM Annotations.
