I'd like to get the list of available annotation for a specific block from script in order to then programmatically set them with the function:
set_param(gcb,'AttributesFormatString','MyAnnotation = %<MyToken>');
I'm already able to get the parameters of the block with
blockParam = get_param(gcb,'ObjectParameters');
Unfortunately the resulting list includes more properties than what I'm looking for.
To be specific, I'd like to get the exact same list of properties shown in the Block Annotation tab, under the Block Properties window (right click on block, Properties...):
I'm pretty sure is a matter on knowing the specific object property field to look for (obj= get_param(gcb,'Object');).

Thank you Archit, I'm already awware of that page. Unfortunately it doesn't show the available annotation list for eack block type. It is just a list of common block parameters.
The annotation list is bespoke for eack block type, for example the annotation %<BreakpointsForDimensionXX> belongs only to Lookup Table blocks.
