When an HTML page is to include a background image follwing code sequence can be used:
If an HTML page shall reference files, only the URLs of the corresponding files are included in the HTML code. This requires the files to reside on the computer where the HTTP server is running (they must be visible for the HTTP server). If the WAA server is running on another computer, the files must be transferred from the WAA server machine to the HTTP server machine.
The file cWaaFile must be accessible from the package DLL, or Web application. Its name can include a complete path as it is usually coded in any Xbase++ application. The backslash "\" is used as delimiter for directories.
The file cHttpFile must be accessible from the HTTP server. The file name must include a directory which is located in the document root-directory of the HTTP server. This is normally the directory where temporary files are stored. The forward slash "/" is used as delimiter for directories.
