MetaDraw background image in WinForm

Hi all,

I'm working on a windows application, thats essentially a drawing program.
I'm not the original developer on it and have a few problems with the
MetaDraw component.

Upon creation of a new drawing, the user can specify a background image for
the drawing.
This background picture is inserted by adding it as an MDPicture object to
the Picture property, to the MetaDraw object.

metaDraw.Pictur e = new MDPicture(fileN ame);

My problem is, that when the user prints the image or exports it to a report
(crystal reports), I cant remove this background image again.

I've tried clearing the ExportOptions flags and when I debug through, I can
see that the MetaDraw.BackPi cture is null.
Yet the background is still visible.

Anyone have a way to remove the background image temporarily?

Hi there, I need to use a background image in a TR that does NOT restart everytime it hits a TD. Can it be done? Specifically, if you set a background image for an entier table, now mater how many TRs and TDs you have, it will show the complete/unfragmented image (as long as you don't over-ride it). When I set a TR background image, every time I hit a TD it "re-seeds" the image. I want to have a TR that shows an 800px image in it's

I'm having a problem with IE rendering correctly. I'm experimenting with using all div's in my pages now, and I'm not very familiar with the quirks of IE. I have created a sample page, and I'm really confused as to what is going on in IE. FF renders the page exactly as I expect. IE renders the page with everything in the correct location, but it seems to double the background image for a sub-div section that is moved up using a negative...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
