I'm using dompdf to generate pdf with background image but I can't make background-image to work. I have copied dompdf's example background_image.html from www/test/ folder that works when I click on their link to generate pdf, but it won't work when I use my code.
Please help, below is the code that I use.
<?php
ini_set("memory_limit","64M");
set_time_limit(300);
require_once("dompdf_config.inc.php");
 
$html ='<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"'.

'<style>'.
'p.c1 { background-image: url(dompdf_simple.png); background-repeat: repeat-x; background-position: 100px 1%; }'.
'p.c2 { background-image: url(php.gif); background-position: top left; background-repeat: repeat-y; }'.
'</style>'.
'</head>'.

My mistake, image was not in the same folder. It seams that it's working only when the image is in the same folder.

Thank you for helping.
