    Elements can display pictures in layers. The first layer consists of a foreground picture, next comes the content of the element, such as text and a picture, then comes the background picture, and finally, the background of the element, which displays the background color.

    Set this property to specify the background picture layer. This property is available at run time only.

    Set the ForegroundImage property to specify the foreground picture layer. Set the Picture property to specify the picture in the content layer.

    Set other features for the background picture using the following Picture class properties:

    Specifies horizontal alignment
    Specifies vertical alignment
    Specifies the picture to display
    Specifies how to display the picture, such as stretched proportionally or tiled
    Specifies what color in the picture to make transparent

    If the application changes the background picture, the BackgroundImageChanged event occurs.
