Technical Tip from "Dr. DeeBee": Background Image for a Form
Visual CE allows you to specify the background color of the form (using the FORM | COLOR command in the development environment), but you might want to use an image (such as a company logo) as your background instead. Starting with release 11 of Visual CE, you can use an Image Control to display a background image.
