THIS FUNCTION IS NOW INHERITED DIRECTLY FROM THE PARENT LANNOTATION CLASS.
Sets the font size of the annotation object.
virtual L_INT LAnnText::SetFontSize(dFontSize, uFlags=0)
The font size to set, expressed as an unscaled value relative to the container.
Flags that determine 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:
|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 LAnnContainer::GetSelectItems and LAnnotation::SetSelected functions.|
|ANNFLAG_NOINVALIDATE||[0x0010] Do not invalidate the affected rectangle in the window. Use this to avoid generating unwanted paint messages.|
|SUCCESS||The function was successful.|
|< 1||An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.|
The font size of an object is relative to its container object. The height of a font is interpreted using the container's vertical scaling factor. For example, suppose you want the font to appear as a 10-point font on your screen using the current scaling factor. You would use the following calculation, where A is the pixel height of a 10-point font, B is the value that you get from the LAnnotation::GetScalarX function, and C is the value that you get from the LAnnotation::GetScalarY function:
dFontSize = A / sqrt( B * C )
For more information, refer to Low-Level Coordinate System for Annotations.
For an example, refer to LAnnText::GetFontSize.
