Aspose.Words Watermarks- Backgrounds

Hello,
I wish my document created by aspose to have a backgound watermark in various formats(horizontal/vertical/corner to corner). How can I do this? If watermarks are not supported is there any way I can use a background image TIF to show the background on each document created by Aspose.Words.
Any sample appreciated.
Thanks,
Vinay Hattarki

Hi

Thanks for your inquiry. Please see the attached document to learn how to insert watermarks into the Word documents using Aspose.Words.
Hope this helps.
Best regards.

I used the code provided and modified it as below but it seems its not getting anything on the document as watermark. Actually I am saving my words object as .DOC first and then converting it to SaveAsImage TIF. I wish to get this watermark carried on both DOC file and TIF image.

Private Sub AsposeWatermark(ByVal doc As Document, ByVal watermarkText As String)
 'Private Sub InsertWatermarkText(ByVal doc As Document, ByVal watermarkText As String)
 'Create the whatermark shape
 'This will be a WordArt shape. You are free to use any type of shape as a watermark
 Dim watermark As Aspose.Words.Drawing.Shape = New Aspose.Words.Drawing.Shape(doc, Aspose.Words.Drawing.ShapeType.TextPlainText)
 'This will be text of the watermark
 watermark.TextPath.Text = watermarkText
 watermark.TextPath.FontFamily = "Times New Roman"
 watermark.Width = 600
 watermark.Height = 100
 'Text dirrection will be from bottom-left corner to top-right
 watermark.Rotation = -45
 'Uncomment the following line if you need solid black text
 watermark.Fill.Color = Color.Gray
 watermark.StrokeColor = Color.Gray
 'Set position of the watermark
 'The watermark should be placed on the center of the page
 watermark.RelativeHorizontalPosition = Aspose.Words.Drawing.RelativeHorizontalPosition.Page
 watermark.RelativeVerticalPosition = Aspose.Words.Drawing.RelativeVerticalPosition.Page
 watermark.WrapType = Aspose.Words.Drawing.WrapType.None
 watermark.VerticalAlignment = Aspose.Words.Drawing.VerticalAlignment.Center
 watermark.HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Center
 'Create new paragraph and append the watermark to this paragraph
 Dim watermarkPar As Paragraph = New Paragraph(doc)
 watermarkPar.AppendChild(watermark)
 Dim hfTypes As ArrayList = New ArrayList()
 hfTypes.Add(HeaderFooterType.HeaderPrimary)
 hfTypes.Add(HeaderFooterType.HeaderFirst)
 hfTypes.Add(HeaderFooterType.HeaderEven)
 'Now we should insert the watermark into the header of each section of the document
 For Each sect As Section In doc.Sections
 For Each hftype As HeaderFooterType In hfTypes
 If (sect.HeadersFooters(hftype) Is Nothing) Then
 'If there is no header of the specified type in the current section we should create new header
 If (hftype.Equals(HeaderFooterType.HeaderPrimary) Or _
 hftype.Equals(HeaderFooterType.HeaderFirst) And sect.PageSetup.DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter Or _
 hftype.Equals(HeaderFooterType.HeaderEven) And sect.PageSetup.OddAndEvenPagesHeaderFooter) Then
 Dim hf As HeaderFooter = New HeaderFooter(doc, hftype)
 'Insert clone of watermarkPar into the header
 hf.AppendChild(watermarkPar.Clone(True))
 sect.HeadersFooters.Add(hf)
 End If
 Else
 'If the header of specified type exists then just insert the watermark
 sect.HeadersFooters(hftype).AppendChild(watermarkPar.Clone(True))
 End If
 Next
 Next

End Sub

Hi

Thanks for your request. This is the known issue #7114 in our defect database. As a workaround you can insert watermark as an image. See the following code:

Private Sub AsposeWatermarkImage(ByVal doc As Document, ByVal imagePath As String)
'Create the whatermark shape
'You are free to use any type of shape as a watermark
Dim watermark As Aspose.Words.Drawing.Shape = New Aspose.Words.Drawing.Shape(doc, Aspose.Words.Drawing.ShapeType.Image)
'This will be text of the watermark
watermark.ImageData.SetImage(imagePath)
watermark.Width = 200
watermark.Height = 200
'Set position of the watermark
'The watermark should be placed on the center of the page
watermark.RelativeHorizontalPosition = Aspose.Words.Drawing.RelativeHorizontalPosition.Page
watermark.RelativeVerticalPosition = Aspose.Words.Drawing.RelativeVerticalPosition.Page
watermark.WrapType = Aspose.Words.Drawing.WrapType.None
watermark.VerticalAlignment = Aspose.Words.Drawing.VerticalAlignment.Center
watermark.HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Center
'Create new paragraph and append the watermark to this paragraph
Dim watermarkPar As Paragraph = New Paragraph(doc)
watermarkPar.AppendChild(watermark)
Dim hfTypes As ArrayList = New ArrayList()
hfTypes.Add(HeaderFooterType.HeaderPrimary)
hfTypes.Add(HeaderFooterType.HeaderFirst)
hfTypes.Add(HeaderFooterType.HeaderEven)
'Now we should insert the watermark into the header of each section of the document
For Each sect As Section In doc.Sections
For Each hftype As HeaderFooterType In hfTypes
If (sect.HeadersFooters(hftype) Is Nothing) Then
'If there is no header of the specified type in the current section we should create new header
If (hftype.Equals(HeaderFooterType.HeaderPrimary) Or hftype.Equals(HeaderFooterType.HeaderFirst) And sect.PageSetup.DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter Or hftype.Equals(HeaderFooterType.HeaderEven) And sect.PageSetup.OddAndEvenPagesHeaderFooter) Then
Dim hf As HeaderFooter = New HeaderFooter(doc, hftype)
'Insert clone of watermarkPar into the header
hf.AppendChild(watermarkPar.Clone(True))
sect.HeadersFooters.Add(hf)
End If
Else
'If the header of specified type exists then just insert the watermark
sect.HeadersFooters(hftype).AppendChild(watermarkPar.Clone(True))
End If
Next
Next
End Sub

Also note, rotation of the image will be lost during rendering. This is the known issue #7469.
