Handle to the text-based annotation object.

This function causes a text-based annotation to enter edit mode, which displays an edit window for direct entry of text. Calling this function allows a user to programmatically force an object into edit mode - an action that is normally available in automation mode when creating or double-clicking text-based annotations.
It can be used with any of the text-based annotations including:
A successful call to L_AnnSetText() affects
hObject in the following way:
If hObject is not selected, hObject becomes selected, and all other objects become unselected.
If hObject is already selected, then the selection state of all objects is unchanged.
If hObject is one of several objects selected, then the selection state of all objects is unchanged.
Only one object can be in text edit mode. Therefore, if another text object is in text edit mode (hObject2), calling L_AnnTextEdit(), will get hObject2 out of the text edit mode, and put hObject into the text edit mode.
This function will fail with ERROR_AUTOMATION_INV_HANDLE if hObject is not contained in the root container and if it is not in the automated mode.
This function works only with the following objects:
If you pass an object that is not one of these types, the function will return ERROR_INV_PARAMETER.
This example programmatically makes an annotation text object
hObject go into edit mode.
Note that hObject must be a annotation.
