Hi there,

I've used the following code to use a .jpg as the background for my PDF.

PdfDocument document = new PdfDocument();
document.PageSettings.Margins.All = 0;
document.PageSettings.Size = PdfPageSize.A4;
PdfPage page = document.Pages.Add();
PdfGraphics graphics = page.Graphics;
PdfImage backgroundImage = PdfImage.FromImage(Resources.briefpapier_2007);
page.Graphics.DrawImage(backgroundImage, 0, 0, page.GetClientSize().Width, page.GetClientSize().Height);
// Use this to make sure we don't go past a certain point
page.Section.PageSettings.Margins.Bottom = 100;

I'm not sure if this is right, but I'm using the PageAdded event to make sure every other page is getting another background.

PdfPage page = args.Page;
page.Section.PageSettings.Margins.All = 0;
PdfImage backgroundImage = PdfImage.FromImage(Resources.briefpapier_2007_vervolg);
page.Graphics.DrawImage(backgroundImage, 0, 0, page.GetClientSize().Width, page.GetClientSize().Height);
// Set new margins
page.Section.PageSettings.Margins.Bottom = 20;
page.Section.PageSettings.Margins.Top = 200;

I've set the top margin really high. But when I add a table to page 1, the top margin isn't working. Row 1-x is shown on page 1, but from row x to the end is shown on page 2, but immediately at the extreme top of the page.

Any idea how to solve this? Thanks

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion PDF.

Top margin is not working properly.

I was able to view the condition which is mentioned here. We have resolve the problem by commenting the all Margin values as 0 statement (PageSettings.Margins.All = 0;). Please do find the sample from the below specified location and let me know if this helps.
