      • getManagedImage

        Image getManagedImage​(Annotation annotation)
        Returns the image for the given annotation or null. The returned image is managed by this annotation image provided. If the annotation image provider does not support managed images, clients have to manage the annotation images. For that, clients first ask for the image descriptor id for a given annotation (getImageDescriptorId(Annotation)) as then for the image descriptor. The image descriptor id should be used to manage the annotation images using an ImageRegistry.
        Parameters:
        annotation - the annotation
        Returns:
        the managed image
