    Hi there, is that possible to have image overlays (1 image on top of another), for a Report?
    We actually tried that and it works in PDF and RTF, but no MHTML and report Preview.

    any suggestions welcome :)

    Hi James,

    Generally it is not a good idea to have overlapping items in a report, because they will be moved down so that they do not overlap and the final result might be different from what was designed and expected. HTML and Excel do not support overlapping items by default (noted in the Design considerations help section) and it is highly recommended to avoid that in the other formats as well.
    You can achieve the desired functionality by either creating the "ready" image outside of Telerik Reporting and simply show it in a picturebox item or try to use the background image of the picturebox item for your goals.
