OpenUrl OpenUrl(url: string)
OpenUrl(url: string, index: int)
Opens an image into the WebImageViewer control from a URL or virtual path, and frame index.

Note: This function is asynchronous. If any code needs to be executed after this call, it should be placed in the ImageChanged event handler.
N/A PauseRefresh() Pauses UI updates for this control until ResumeRefresh is called. Pauses and Refreshes are nestable. The update happens when an equal number of ResumeRefresh and PauseRefresh calls are made.
Print Print() Prints the current image using javascript client code.
Redo Redo() Re-does an undo.
Invoke RemoteInvoke(mthd : string)
RemoteInvoke(mthd : string, args : Array)
Remotely invokes a server side method with the array of arguments.

Note: This function is asynchronous. If any code needs to be executed after this call, it should be placed in the RemoteInvoked event handler.
N/A ResumeRefresh() Resumes paused UI updates for this control. Pauses and Refreshes are nestable. The update happens when an equal number of ResumeRefresh and PauseRefresh calls are made.
N/A ScrollBy(dx : int, dy : int) Scrolls the viewer by the given values.
N/A ScrollTo(x: int, y: int) Scrolls the viewer to the given coordinates.

Undo Undo() Reverts the image back to the previously cached image.

Note: This function is limited to Image changes only. The number of available undos relies on the server side CacheLevels property of the control.
Update Update() Forces the current image to be cached and updates the viewable area.


AnnotationEvent

This object is based on the browser's mouse event object, if it pertains to a mouse event. The following properties are in addition to the properties that are specified by each individual browser.

Usage:

JavaScript Copy Code
/* You will need a WebAnnotationViewer and a reference to ClientTools.js before this snippet.
 * This reference is automatically added to the page inline with the WebControls,
 * so placing this snippet below the WebAnnotationViewer control will be sufficient.
 */
Atalasoft.Utils.InitClientScript(BindAnnotationEvents);
function BindAnnotationEvents(){
   WebAnnotationViewer1.AnnotationDoubleClicked = AnnotationEventExample;
   WebAnnotationViewer1.AnnotationRightClicked = AnnotationEventExample;
}

// This simple example alerts the user when an annotation is double or right clicked.
function AnnotationEventExample(e){
   var pos = Atalasoft.Utils.getMousePosition(e);
   alert('Event fired on annotation at position: ' + pos.X + 'x' + pos.Y);
}
