AddRectangleAnnotInteractive Method (GdViewer)
Example 





GdPicture14.WPF Namespace > GdViewer Class : AddRectangleAnnotInteractive Method
Set this parameter to True/true, if you want to fill the rectangle using the defined background color, otherwise set it to False/false.
Set this parameter to True/true, if you want to stroke the rectangle using the defined border color, otherwise set it to False/false.
A color object that defines the required background color of the newly added rectangle annotation.
A color object that defines the required border color of the newly added rectangle annotation.
The border width of the newly added rectangle annotation, in inches.
The opacity value of the newly added rectangle annotation, from 0 (full transparency) to 1 (full opacity).
Allows users to interactively add a new rectangle 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.

This annotation enables users to draw a filled and bordered rectangle or square by adjusting its height and width continuously using the mouse.

The type of the newly added annotation object is GdPictureAnnotationType.AnnotationTypeRectangle. You can change the annotation properties directly using the GdPicture14.Annotations.AnnotationRectangle 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.
