Nprinting HTML Background

Hi,

How do I insert an image as background in an html-report. Preferebly in a table, as I will add som values over the picture.

I have tried following without success:

Thanks in advance!

<html>
    <body >
      <table width="1500" hight="300" background=<img src="%%JTcQk%%" alt="JTcQk">>
           <tr hight="100">
               <td width="250">cell1</td>
               <td width="250">cell2</td>
           </tr>
           <tr hight="100">
               <td width="250"> cell3</td>
               <td width="250"> cell4</td>
           </tr>
      </table>
    </body>
</html>

Hi,

I suggest you to open a support ticket about this. We need the help of a developer to investigate the issue.

Best Regards,

I think your HTML syntax is not right

 

 background=<img

 

On top of the above when you drag&drop image on the template it is converted to base64 image with parameters like hight, width etc.. which messes up inline syntax

I suggest you create your image as Base64 text encapsulated in NPrinting formula and then use this formula as on screenshot/script below:

 

<html>
    <body >
      <table width="1500" hight="300" style="background-image: url(%%image%%)"> 
               <td width="250">cell1</td>
               <td width="250">cell2</td>
           </tr>
           <tr hight="100">
               <td width="250"> cell3</td>
               <td width="250"> cell4</td>
           </tr>
      </table>  
    </body>          
</html>

Thanks for the answer!

 

For me, this does not display an image as a background in the table, even if I follow the instructions and use your script exactly as it is. Have you been able to do so?

Lech_Miszkiewicz

Yes It worked for me

@Lech_Miszkiewicz  Inserting the image in a formula means that you will have a fixed image, not a Qlik Sense object exported as image and used as background of the table. I supposed the second was the request.
