Sets or changes the color of an annotation.
The color can be defined in any device color space. However, at time of publication the function converts the color back to DeviceRGB.
Note that not all annotation types support a background or border color. For example, link annotations support a border color but no background or text color.
When changing a color of a Free Text annotation DynaPDF must rebuild the appearance stream of the annotation. This can cause slightly changes in the text position. See also DynaPDF.FreeTextAnnot.
