Add Watermarks to a Report
This tutorial describes how to add watermarks to a report and use preprinted forms.
Add a Watermark to a Report
To add a watermark to a report, do the following.
Switch to the toolbar's Page page and press Watermark.
In the invoked Watermark dialog, select either the Text Watermark or Picture Watermark tab, depending on the type of watermark you wish to add..
Additionally, for both textual and picture watermarks, you can adjust the transparency, position (in front of or behind the document content), and the page range in which the watermark will be printed.
In the invoked Select Picture dialog, select the file containing the image that you wish to use as a watermark and click Open. Next, specify the size mode and alignment options for the picture.
For a picture watermark, you need to specify an image. To do this, click the ellipsis button for the Load image option.
For a text watermark, specify the text, direction and font options.
Supply a Preprinted Form
You can use a picture watermark as a template, to display an image of the preprinted form on the report's body at design time.
To display a watermark at design time, switch to the toolbar's View page and activate Watermark.
The following image illustrates a report with a watermark shown at design-time that contains a template of a preprinted form.
Place report controls on the report's body according to the layout of the preprinted form.
