#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual L_INT LAnnAutomation::SetUnit(uUnit, pUnitAbbrev, uPrecision, uFlags=0)

Sets the unit of measurement for the rulers used by those objects that use rulers.

Parameters

L_UINT uUnit

The unit of measure of the ruler. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
ANNUNIT_INCHES [0] inches
ANNUNIT_FEET [1] feet
ANNUNIT_YARDS [2] yards
ANNUNIT_MICROMETERS [3] micrometers
ANNUNIT_MILLIMETERS [4] millimeters
ANNUNIT_CENTIMETERS [5] centimeters
ANNUNIT_METERS [6] meters
ANNUNIT_TWIPS [7] twips
ANNUNIT_POINTS [8] points
ANNUNIT_PIXELS [9] pixels
ANNUNIT_SMART_METRIC [10] Smart Metric
ANNUNIT_SMART_ENGLISH [11] Smart English
ANNUNIT_DISPLAY [12] Display (1/100 inch)
ANNUNIT_DOCUMENT [13] Document (1/300 inch)

L_TCHAR * pUnitAbbrev

Character string containing the unit abbreviation string to be displayed after the distance. You can pass NULL to get the default abbreviations for the current unit of measurement.

L_UINT uPrecision

Number of digits to be displayed after the decimal place.

L_UINT uFlags

Reserved for future versions, use 0.

Returns

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

Comments

The following annotation objects utilize one or more rulers as part of the annotation:

In addition, the Automation object (ANNOBJECT_AUTOMATION) stores default ruler settings along with the other object default settings.

To determine the unit of measure for each ruler as well as its precision, call the LAnnAutomation::GetUnit function or the LAnnRuler::GetUnit function. The default unit of measure for Ruler, Polyruler, and Crossproduct objects is Smart English. With the smart units, the unit changes with the length. For example, if the length is 11 inches (assuming the default precision of 2 is being used), "11.00 in" displays whereas if the length is 15 inches, "1 ft 3.00 in" displays. Call the LAnnAutomation::SetUnit or the LAnnRuler::SetUnit function to set the unit of measurement and its precision for the ruler. The precision indicates how many digits to display to the right of the decimal point in the length.

Refer to Annotation Automation Object.
