Background images in tables

Posted 13 January 2007 - 07:24 PM

I'm using Dreamweaver 8, I am working in layout mode, I draw a table in layout mode and then go to standared mode, select the table and insert a background image in it.

The problem is the image is repeating. How do I stop this?
How do I configure the table so that images don't repeat?

I'm a novice using the design view in Dreamweaver. Know nothing about codes.

Thanks for your help.

you can't change that effect without using some css. html just doesn't have the ability to set if its going to repeat or not.


so, if you want to learn a little bit about css you can check out http://www.w3schools.com and read their primer

otherwise, i believe the attribute is 'background-repeat' and the property gonna be simply no-repeat
so <table width="200" height="200" STYLE="background-image: 
	 url('your_image.gif'); background-repeat: no-repeat;">


NOTE TO Dreamincoders:
if someone else wouldn't mind spot checking that. not the master of the inline.

But if you do that then I think part of the table will be image-less. So probably you should try using a bigger image. One that can fill the entire table. ^-^
