In my application, I thought of putting a background image towards the end of UI development. This window in which I wanted to put the background image had numerous controls with references. Although adding the image object to the window is simple, but what I was not able to achieve is to put the image behind my controls. Thus this window showed only the image at runtime. Then I had to redesign this window from the scratch. This resulted in loss of references, which had to be set again. Was just wondering if there is some way of avoiding this rework...Pls suggest!
