    Hello. I have an applet created with a form with a combo box. The combo box has room setup options. Once a room setup is selected the image for that room appears in an image box. I have figured out how to pass that image to an attachment in an email. What I would really like to do is use that image as the background picture for the message area. I can do this manually by selecting insert picture on the HTML toolbar. I have tried to record an applet with these steps but it doesn’t show the coding for the background picture.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Given an active HTML message view, two suggestions come to mind:

    Some suggestions…

    1) Copy the html contents into clipboard and later paste into message

    Utilities.CopyHTMLToClipboard("<HTML><BODY background=C:imagesrosebouquetbg.jpg></BODY></HTML>")
    call groupwise.focusset(fcsMessage, "")
    GroupWise.EditPaste

    2) Use the HTMLDom to update the message

    Utilities.IHTMLDocumentFromView(oDocument)

    See the Developers Guide for more details on this approach.

    Thank you for the ideas. I actually tried these and could not get it working. But, I found a way that does work. The problem is that it copies in the graphic as well as ML>. If I paste in Word, it actually shows HTML> and the graphic. I have tried many different ways to write the code but still get the ML> in the message area of GW. Here is the code:

    Utilities.CopyHTMLToClipboard(“HTML<IMG SRC=D:/CUSTOMVIEWS/ACTIVITYROOM/REGULARACTIVITY.JPG>”)

    I use the following code to paste:

    call groupwise.focusset(fcsMessage, “”)
    GroupWise.EditPaste

    Is there any way to paste without getting the words?

    Thanks again for all your help.

    Hi,

    Engineering have suggested the following:

    Utilities.CopyHTMLToClipboard("<br><IMG src=""file:///D:/CUSTOMVIEWS/ACTIVITYROOM/REGULARACTIVITY.JPG"">")
    call groupwise.focusset(fcsMessage, "")
    GroupWise.EditPaste

    Let me know if that works for you.
