    I am trying to add a backgroundimage to a chart on a report (Version Q2 2007). The problem is: One cannot use the normal Appearance-Fillstyle properties as they do not accept resources.

    I tried using the Style.BackgroundImage property which accepts resouces. Looks fine in the designer, but the background image does not appear in the HTML preview (background white) nor the PDF rendered (background black).

    There is something that makes me believe it is the right direction: In the PDF rendered, there is a black shape hiding the background image. When one moves the PDF file in the PDF viewer fast enough, it is sometimes possible to see the background behind that shape.

    Is there a suggested way to get around this? As this is important for a production project of mine, I am thankful for a workaround as well.

    Thank you,

    Hi Fabian,

    Unfortunately, in the current version of the Reporting the Chart report item does not support background images. However, it seems like a great idea. We will consider it for implementation in the next version.

    Hope this information helps. Please let me know if I can assist you any further.
    Thank you in advnce.

    All the best,
