    Watermark on Form (A2K)

    Hi,
    I would like to put a "Watermark" style label on one of my forms. Can anyone tell me if they have done this before?

    Thanks,
    Mark Santos

    You can put a graphic on your form's background. Could you describe what you're trying to do in more detail? I'm not sure what a watermark "style" label would look like.

    You should be able to place a label on a form with a very light shade of gray (or whatever color you like) and place it beneath all other objects (Format | Send to Back)

    Thanks Charlotte,
    Mark J I think has the right idea. What I want to do is....

    I have a front end I am playing around with. When I want to test it, I post it for people to have a look at. Now, it looks pretty much the same as the production FE they are using so I want something blatantly obvious on screen that shows them they are not using the real McCoy. My reference to a watermark is just that a watermark feature on a printer prints a light grey (usually) text block across the page. However, the other text items are still very visible on top. Hope that explains it good enough. BTW, I found another thread about this subject from a few days ago, I guess I will do a search next time!!!

    Thanks,
    Mark
