[RPG]setting background image to formview

Post by MegumiSawada » Wed Feb 05, 2020 12:33 pm

Hi,

Is it possible to set an image element to formview itself as background image?
I would like to put other elements on it.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Megumi

I've done this in the past in RDMLX by adding the image to the form (using set_image with a local resource) and using the z_Index parm to push the image to the "back", and allow the primary user controls etc to float above it.

I would imagine that in RPG the same would be possible?

I guess it does depend on the particular scenario though and what controls you want to add to the form?

Anyway - hope that helps in your situation.

Cheers for now.

Marcus.

Hi Marcus,

Oh, z_Index !!
I didn't think of it. I'll try it.

Thank you for your advice!
Regards, Megumi
