System.Windows.Annotations Namespace

Provides classes to support user-created annotations on content displayed in WPF document viewing controls.

Types in the System.Windows.Annotations namespace are provided to support the management of user-created annotations on application data displayed in Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) document viewing controls. Using the Microsoft Annotations Framework applications can add support for user-created notes and highlights that are stored separate from the application document itself. Since the user annotation information is stored separately from the document content, users can even add notes and highlights to read-only or rights-managed documents that cannot be physically changed.

The WPF document viewing controls that support user-annotation capabilities are based on DocumentViewerBase derived subclasses such as DocumentViewer, FlowDocumentPageViewer, and FlowDocumentScrollViewer as well as FlowDocumentReader.
