AddLineAnnotInteractive Method (GdViewer)
Example 





GdPicture14.WPF Namespace > GdViewer Class : AddLineAnnotInteractive Method
A color object that defines the required color of the newly added line annotation. It corresponds to the AnnotationLine.StrokeColor property.
The width of the newly added line annotation, in inches. It corresponds to the AnnotationLine.BorderWidth property.
A member of the PenLineCap enumeration. Specifies the cap style used at the beginning of a drawn line.
A member of the PenLineCap enumeration. Specifies the cap style used at the end of a drawn line.
The opacity value of the newly added line annotation, from 0 (full transparency) to 1 (full opacity).
Allows users to interactively add a new line annotation using the mouse on the current page of the document displayed in the GdViewer control. The annotation object is added following all the parameters you have specified and respecting the dimensions users will define using the mouse as well.

A line annotation presents a single straight line with specified cap styles on its ending points.

The type of the newly added annotation object is GdPictureAnnotationType.AnnotationTypeLine. You can change the annotation properties directly using the GdPicture14.Annotations.AnnotationLine class before or after the successful creation of the annotation object. Please refer to both the BeforeAnnotationAddedByUser and the AnnotationAddedByUser events, respectively to both the PreviewBeforeAnnotationAddedByUser and the PreviewAnnotationAddedByUser events, for how to achieve this.

Be aware that the editing mode for annotations must be enabled using the SetAnnotationEditorMode method, otherwise this method will fail.
