How can I tile an Image over top of a DIV tag?

    I have an application ( 2.0) that allows people to review documents.
    I need to place a tiled image (a ‘Void document Not accepted’ graphic) on top
    of a div. The div will have an asp:label to display the document and some
    other goodies. I need to print the page with this image superimposed on the
    document. I want the document to still be readable but it should be obvious
    that the document isn’t accepted. I would like the image on the printed
    document to appear as a shadow on top of the source document. When the
    document has been accepted I will not want to display the image.

    I first looked into just using a background image but that wasn’t really
    what I wanted and that is usually flushed out before printing.

    I’m sure people probably do this sort of think a lot. If any one could
    point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

    Thanks for the quick response. This looks great for helping to protect copy
    written content however I think this solution sounds pretty complicated in my

    Unfortunately all of the documents that will be evaluated are html. These
    documents can be several pages of tables within tables and have fairly
    complicated formatting of text. From what I could take out of the sample
    this would better suited adding small text additions to images. I depend
    heavily on the html for easy transformation and presentation. Unfortunately
    the graphic object doesn't have a draw html method. Creating an image from my
    several page documents could be quite a challenging.
    I’m hoping to find some way to make an image appear on top of my content. I
    have experimented creating a layer with a Div and absolution positioning; but
    when I print I notice that the layers are all put in single file. So I end
    up with a graphic at the bottom of the page.

  4. Hi Jeff,

    I think your current solution on set the graphic/div at the bottom of the
    page is reasonable since HTML page in brower can display as multiple
    layers, however, when printing out, multiple layers will be merged to
    single layer. So to avoid the Image covers some other text on the html, we
    have to put it under all the other html content.
