[WPF][RDLC] Set Image as Background of Tablix RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    in RDLC I would set an image as background, so I create this structure:

    But what happens:
    1) in preview with ReportViewer, I see the image of background up and each labels under the image

    2) when I print it each labels is in correct position.

    This two screenshot is a crop of full report.

    I not set the background to Tablix because I have problem with the resolution between the image and the report, the image is too big and it comes out  of report.

  • Sorry I missed your question yesterday Robertino.

    It's really a reporting question and this is the wrong forum, which is probably why nobody else replied.


    You might imagine that there's some property you could set to scale an image to a background.

    Unfortunately, there isn't.

    I would resize the image you have in a picture editor like paint or picasa to the "correct" size you need and save it as a new file.

    Use that and set the background property.

    I think that should make your problems go away. 


    In my experience, Crystal Reports is a much more mature reports tool than Microsoft Reports. Personally, I use Crystal for most reporting.  There's a specific area which ms reports is better - dynamic reporting.  Because rdl is xml you can build a report definition dynamically and allow users to pick the columns they want.  Fairly easily with ms reports, a PITA with crystal. 

    But for stuff like this, I think you would find Crystal offers much more functionality.

    Hope that helps.

  • Hi Andy,
    of course, Crystal Report is better, but in this project it was used Microsoft Report and I must follow this way.
    I set the image of background to same size of report, but there is a problem with resolution between this element.

    Thanks for the support.

  • I don't follow what you mean by "resolution between this element". Sorry, it must be tricky writing questions in a foreign language.

    Your image appears to just be "Printed". Can't you just reproduce it to the right size

    I'm guessing it's some sort of a scaling pixellating problem, somehow.

    Hope that helps.
