Hi Roger,

Another method, if the image is the correct size to suit the polygon (or can be adjusted to fit) you can also…

 set the backgroundPattern of grc "myPolygon" to the ID of image "myImage"

You have less control over the location of the image within the polygon, it's just aligned with the topLeft so if you need to control the location Mark's suggestion may work out better, of course if the image is smaller than the polygon it will just repeat.

Paul
