The Add method adds TextAnnotation and ImageAnnotation objects to a chart control’s AnnotationRepository, where all annotations that are present in a chart control can be centrally accessed (via the ChartControl.AnnotationRepository property).

Alternatively, you can add annotations directly to an element’s annotations collection, via its AnnotationCollection.AddImageAnnotation or AnnotationCollection.AddTextAnnotation method.
