Change freetextannotation text automatically upon edit

Hi, I would like to add text programatically inside a free text annotation.

In particular, when the annotation loses focus, I would like to check if the text of the annotation contains a specific sub string and if not, I would like to add it programatically inside the annotation.

I really do not have a clue how to do this.

Thank you

note: Sorry for multiple replies, I had a hard time with a (word or url not accepted in this forum thing...) my post was much longer...

Hi Jean, 
We do not have support to add the annotations directly in the UI through code behind. To view the changes in UI, we need to save and reload the PdfLoadedDocument object in the PdfViewerControl as mentioned in the below code snippet.  
RectangleF rectangle = new RectangleF(left, top, width, height);  
PdfRectangleAnnotation rectangleAnnot = new PdfRectangleAnnotation(rectangle, "Rectangle annotation");  
rectangleAnnot.Border.BorderWidth = 4;  
rectangleAnnot.Border.BorderStyle = PdfBorderStyle.Solid;  
We created a sample for the same and it can be downloaded in the below link,  
Kindly let us know whether the above details fulfil your requirement.
