Remarks

ITextElement is the main interface of the TextElement and ParagraphTextElement objects.  The interface is used to manipulate the symbol and text string associated with these element types.  The most common method for obtaining a reference to an object that implements ITextElement object is to take an IElement reference from an IGraphicsContainer and check to see if the object supports ITextElement.  If you are manipulating TextElements in an annotation feature class, it is recommended that you consult ISymbolCollectionElement for detailed information on the specialized symbol management of text in this situation.
