How to set background image to Page

Hi ,

I want to add page i.e. FirstPage of document . To this page I want to set Background-Image which will cover entire page page size is 8.5’’ X 11.0’’ and after that I want to add Text , Images to that
First Page. And insert more N number of pages but these pages will contain Text ,Images but NO Background-Image.

Background-Image is only for FirstPage.

Hi Jeevan,

Thanks for your inquiry. Sure, you can insert a background image in the first page of your document by using Headers/Footers. Here is the code to achieve this:

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder();
PageSetup ps = builder.Document.FirstSection.PageSetup;
ps.DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter = true;
ps.HeaderDistance = 0;
Shape background = builder.InsertImage(@"C:\Temp\BackgroundImage.png");
background.Width = ps.PageWidth;
background.Height = ps.PageHeight;
background.RelativeHorizontalPosition = RelativeHorizontalPosition.Page;
background.RelativeVerticalPosition = RelativeVerticalPosition.Page;
background.Left = 0;
background.Top = 0;
background.WrapType = WrapType.None;
background.BehindText = true;
builder.Writeln("First page content goes here");
builder.Writeln("The content for other pages goes here");

I hope, this helps.

Best regards,
