'welcome everybody'

What I'm trying to do today is scalable background of my window.
Is it possible to attach sides of image to the window borders?

I tried already with formLayout and few others UI elements but it's not working.

So guys thanks in advance and best !!

Judging from the screenshot your supplied, this seems to be exactly what you've achieved.

Or am I misinterpreting your question?

True.... :)
But I made it in PS :) Forgot to mention . Sorry ;)

Well, I've played around with every possibility I could think of.

Apparently, there is no control that supports resizing of the supplied image.

The image or picture controls are always at least as large as the supplied picture. Resizing them doesn't make the picture stretch (though the picture control allows for tiling the picture to fill up the area, but that isn't what you want).

The iconTextStaticLabel is supposed to resize the image with the control if the -style flag is set to "iconOnly", but it didn't work for me.

I even tried out various controls placed inside a scrollLayout and supplied it with a -resizeCommand to query the size of the window and resize the picture, but that didn't work either (as noted above).

Sorry I couldn't help you.

Very simple to do if you use Qt/PyQt. Not sure how you'd do it other wise.

Thanks 'Nyro' for bothering. :beer:
I thought it's not so 'easy' with pure mel.

That's for sure... but I was looking for 'simple' inside MEL command :) ... anyway thanks for input.
