L_INT LAnnotation::SetShowStampBorder(bShowStampBorder, uFlags)

Sets one or more bitmap objects to hide or show a border.


L_BOOL bShowStampBorder

Value that indicates whether the bitmap stamp is displayed with a border. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
TRUE Makes the bitmap transparent.
FALSE Do not make the bitmap transparent. This is the default value.

L_UINT uFlags

Flags that indicates 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 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.
ANNFLAG_CHECKMENU [0x0020] Process objects only if the ANNAUTOTEXT_MENU_TRANSPARENT menu item has been selected.


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


Sets one or more annotation stamp objects to hide or show a border. The LAnnotation::SetShowStampBorder function is valid only for the following object types when they are using a bitmap or a metafile:

Stamp (including the Rubber Stamp tools)

In addition, the Automation object stores this setting along with the other object default settings.

Call the LAnnotation::SetShowStampBorder function to set such objects to display a border. By default the border color is red (0x00FF0000). Call the LAnnotation::SetForeColor function to set the border color. Call the LAnnotation::SetLineWidth function to set the border width. By default the border width is .075 points.

Note that the ANNOBJECT_STAMP can display text, a bitmap, or a metafile. If the stamp contains a bitmap or a metafile, use LAnnotation::SetShowStampBorder to show or hide the border. If the stamp contains text, use LAnnotation::SetTextOptions to show or hide the border.
