Button Annotation Object

The Button annotation object (ANNOBJECT_BUTTON) is an image of a standard Windows button that can be activated. With the automated functions, the user clicks and drags to specify the rectangle in the current window. A dialog box then lets the user enter the text for the Button. In run mode, clicking on the Button sends a WM_LTANNEVENT message that indicates an activation event.

The class for Button Annotation objects is LAnnButton.

For information on flipping, reversing or rotating annotation objects, refer to Flipping, Reversing and Rotating Annotation Objects.

With low-level functions, you must specify the defining rectangle. Other applicable properties have the following defaults, which you can change:
