L_LTANN_API L_INT L_AnnGetPointOptions(hObject, pPointOptions, uStructSize)

Gets the options for the specified point annotation object.



Handle to the annotation object.


Pointer to an ANNPOINTOPTIONS structure to be updated with the various point appearance options for the specified annotation object.

L_UINT uStructSize

Size in bytes, of the structure pointed to by pPointOptions, for versioning. Use sizeof(ANNPOINTOPTIONS).


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


Use this function to get the point appearance options of an annotation point object. To use this function, declare a variable of type ANNPOINTOPTIONS, and pass the address of this variable as the second argument. For more information, see the documentation for the structure ANNPOINTOPTIONS.

Required DLLs and Libraries
