TIdMessageBuilderHtml add background color

Recommended Posts

Hello i manage to send an HTML e-mail with formations but i can't add background color to main body.

 

I try this with css but not working

  // This is for adding repeating image in background of body
  vHTMLBuild.HtmlFiles.Add(vBackground, 'back.png');
  //vHTMLBuild.HtmlFiles.Add(vLogo, 'logo.png');

  vHTMLBuild.Html.Add('<html>');
  vHTMLBuild.Html.Add('<head>');
  vHTMLBuild.Html.Add('<style>body {'+
  'background-image: url("back.png");'+
  'background-repeat: repeat;'+
  'background-color: #cccccc;'+
  '}</style>');
  vHTMLBuild.Html.Add('</head>');
  vHTMLBuild.Html.Add('<body>');
  vHTMLBuild.Html.Add('</body>');
  vHTMLBuild.Html.Add('</html>');
  

and this

// This is for adding only background color
//  vHTMLBuild.HtmlFiles.Add(vBackground, 'back.png');
//  vHTMLBuild.HtmlFiles.Add(vLogo, 'logo.png');

  vHTMLBuild.Html.Add('<html>');
  vHTMLBuild.Html.Add('<head>');
  vHTMLBuild.Html.Add('<style>body {'+
  '{background-color: coral;
  '}</style>');
  vHTMLBuild.Html.Add('</head>');
  vHTMLBuild.Html.Add('<body>');
  vHTMLBuild.Html.Add('</body>');
  vHTMLBuild.Html.Add('</html>');    
    
  

Thank you.

That has nothing to do with Indy, and everything to do with your particular HTML/CSS, and whether the receiver supports what you are trying (for instance, not all email readers support background images - see The Ultimate Guide to Background Images in Email ).  Indy does not care about the particular content of your HTML, it gets sent as-is (other than to encode it for transmission purposes only).

 

I will say this, though:

 

- in your 1st case, 'url("back,png")' is wrong for an embedded image, you need to use 'url("cid:back.png")' instead since "back.png" is the Content-ID you assigned to the attachment.

 

- in your 2nd case, the 3rd call to Html.Add() appears to be broken.

Remy this is a hell good Guide, it helps a lot.

 

In the 1st your are right i miss that.

In the 2nd case i forgot some  " '+" so yes it is broken.
