Cell background image for the Web

Design a cell background image for the Web.

I was having trouble getting cell images to show properly. If you define the image filename in the HTML property box, it would show when creating a new document but not on an existing one. The only way to show it on both was to hard code the entire link. The code below shows my solution to this problem using stylesheets.

1. Create a hidden field called "cellImage" that evaluates to:

 db:=@ReplaceSubstring(@ReplaceSubstring(@Subset(@DbName; -1);" ";"+");"\";"/"); image:=""/" + db +"/DiscDocHeader.gif""; image

2. Next place this code in the "HTML Head Content" area:

 "<STYLE type="text/css">" + @NewLine + ".cellback { " + @NewLine + " background: url(" + cellimage +");" + @NewLine + " background-repeat : no-repeat; }" + @NewLine + "</STYLE>"

3. Finally, call the style class in the Table Property box in the Cell HTML Tages area, by entering "cellback" (without the quotes) on the class line.
