How to Set Watermark Text or Watermark Image in Background of QWEB Report?

In QWEB Report, we can add watermark text or images in the background.

For that,

we have to take one <div> (HTML tag), <p> or <img> tag with many CSS attributes.


Example: I want to add a sale order company logo in sale report as watermark text to the report in orange colour.

Add Following <div> in sale-->view-->report_saleorder.xml-->in <div class="page">

In report_saleorder.xml File

<t t-if="doc.company_id.logo">

<div style="position:absolute;opacity:0.25;width:100%;text-align:center;z-index:1000;">

<img t-att-src="'data:image/png;base64,%s' % doc.company_id.logo"/>
