A color object that defines the required color of the newly added ruler annotation. This value defines the color of the ruler's drawn line and it corresponds to the AnnotationRuler.StrokeColor property.
The width of the newly added ruler annotation, in inches. This value defines the width of the ruler's drawn line and it corresponds to the AnnotationRuler.BorderWidth property.
The opacity value of the newly added ruler annotation, from 0 (full transparency) to 1 (full opacity).
The measurement unit of the newly added ruler. The ruler presents its current length in the defined unit at the end of the drawn line.
Example





In This Topic
    AddRulerAnnotInteractive Method (GdViewer)
    In This Topic
    Allows users to interactively add a new ruler 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 ruler annotation depicts a single drawn line showing its length.

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