#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual L_INT LAnnRTF::GetTextRTF(uFormat, pText, puLen)

Gets the text and text length (unformatted text or rich text) of an ANNOBJECT_RTF annotation object.

Parameters

L_UINT uFormat

Value that specifies the text format type. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
RTFFORMAT_TEXT [0x0001] Retrieve the text as unformatted text.
RTFFORMAT_RTF [0x0002] Retrieve the text as rich text.

L_TCHAR * pText

Pointer to a character string to be updated with the annotation object's character string. This value can be NULL.

L_SIZE_T * puLen

Address of the variable to be updated with the length of the object's character string.

Returns

Value Meaning
TRUE There is a fixed annotation object in the client area.
FALSE There are no fixed annotation objects in the client are

Comments

This function is used to retrieve the text from an ANNOBJECT_RTF object. The text can be retrieved either as rich text, or unformatted text.

To use this function:

  1. Call with passing NULL for the pText argument to get length of the required input buffer.
  2. Allocate a buffer.
  3. Call the function to retreive the text.

The following code snippet illustrates the process:

LAnnRTF lRTF;  // assume this is a valid ANNOBJECT_RTF object 
L_UINT uLength; 
L_TCHAR *pText; 
 
// Get the length 
lRTF.GetTextRTF(RTFFORMAT_RTF, NULL, &uLength); 
 
// Allocate a buffer 
pText = (L_TCHAR *)malloc((uLength+1) * sizeof(L_TCHAR)); 
 
// Retrieve the text 
lRTF.GetTextRTF(RTFFORMAT_RTF, pText, &uLength);

Example

This sample gets the text from Rich Text annotation object in one of two formats (text, or rich text)
plRTF: the Rich Text annotation object
uFormat: the format of the retrieved text--one of
RTFFORMAT_TEXT
RTFFORMAT_RTF
