Use a table BLOB field as a background image in a region

PericlesMay 18 2024


I'm using APEX 23.2 over a 23C db and I have a BLOB field in a table which is a mime image, and want to use it as a background image in a region.

Right now I have in the CSS inline this

.t-Body-mainContent {
background: url(#APP_FILES#IMAGES/t_background2.png);
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-size: cover;

but this, require that the image is loaded as a static image in the workspace.

So far I'm able to get the image and show it in the region, but as a content, not as a background.

Anyone knows if this is possible, or how to do it?

Thanks for your comments.
