    I´ve got an PDF, where I´d like to give a full Image as Background. I tried many ways, but I couldn´t find a suitable solution. So I decited, to split the Image up in 3 parts. one for the header, one for the “flowing” and one for the footer. It seems pretty nice so far, but when I try to put the “flowing” image in the body, I got an white space by about 1cm. If I remove the image and take only a color, the white space is gone!

    Any suggestions?


    You may define a page background this way:

    [language=java:35pxssit]PD4PageMark footer = new PD4PageMark();

    It will stretch the image to cover the choosen paper format, so it makes sense to prepare a background image whose aspect ratio is identical to the format.


    I´d like to thank you, for the quick answer. It works perfect. 🙂

    In your PHP Code you need to add the following:
    <br /> passthru('java -Xmx512m -Djava.awt.headless=true -cp .:pd4ml_demo.jar Pd4Php '' . $_POST .<br /> '' 800 A4 $_POST 2>&1');<br />
