AW: [xep-support] displaying background images in <fo:block>

Dear RenderX-Support,


I've solved my problem. I write now the background-image attribute as a attribute of the <xsl:fo-region-body> tag. This works.


But I've also a new question. Is it possible to render transparent images without changing the transparent parts into white?


Best regards

Peter Röcker

Betreff: [xep-support] displaying background images in <fo:block>


Dear RenderX-Support,


I want to get a background image behind our product catalog pages. My problem is it will not be displayed. Can XEP process background images?

Next problem is, the fo:flow-part is separated in 2 columns, but the background image should span the whole fo:flow-part.


This is the part of my FO-document where I want to include a background image:


<fo:block-container position="absolute" top="1pt" left="284pt" height="39.0pt" width="68.0pt" >

<fo:block background-image="url('Y:/Bilddatenbank/Produkte/DPV/DPV-4c/DPV_Logo_Small_new.tif')">

            Here comes normal text...




I think this must be the right attributes for including a background image. If this is correct and XEP normally works with background images, then i've to find out the problem in my other coding. What's your opinion?


Best regards
