Generate a PDF with background image without margin


I want to generate a PDF with DOMPDF tool in CodeIgniter.

I have an image and I want to display it in a background full DIN A4 PDF page, when I try to do this:

body{ background-image: url('http://blogs.ucl.ac.uk/quantum/files/2013/12/artwork-fullsize.jpg'); background-position: bottom right; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-size: 100%; width:100%; height:100%; padding: 0px; margin: 0px; }

I have a PDF but it appear a margin (or padding). I want without margin or padding, just a full 100% image background.

Thank you,


dompdf does not yet support the background-size declaration. The easiest work-around is to absolutely position an image and set the dimensions to those of the page (percent calculations still appear to be a bit off). You have to take into account the page margins, so you should set those as well.

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/> <style> @page { margin: .5in; } .bg { top: -.5in; right: -.5in; bottom: -.5in; left: -.5in; position: absolute; z-index: -1000; min-width: 8.5in; min-height: 11in; } </style> </head> <body> <img class="bg" src="http://eclecticgeek.com/images/macro/ants.jpg"> </body> </html>


I also stumbled upon your problem long time ago. This what i did to make the page no margins.
