Css background-image does not work on table object

advertisements

in my Django app I would like to put a background image in a table. The problem is that the image doesn't show. This is the code:

<table style="background-image: url('/static/assets/img/myimage.png') ;background-position: 0 100% !important;background-repeat: repeat-x ;background-size: 40px 3px">
Hello!
</table>

If I put the same css style in div object all work. Eg:

<div style="background-image: url('/static/assets/img/myimage.png') ;background-position: 0 100% !important;background-repeat: repeat-x ;background-size: 40px 3px">
Hello!
</div>

Where is my mistake? Thanks a lot for the help

EDIT1

I would like to insert a email html file in a django template. I use 'include' and all works for image but doesn't works for background-image style. The image location is correct (if I use 'div' and not 'table' all works). I have bootstrap

EDIT2

This the complete code. In the table I don't see the background image

You left out the ! on your !important tag.

<table style="background-image: url('/static/assets/img/myimage.png') !important;background-position: 0 100% !important;background-repeat: repeat-x !;background-size: 40px 3px">
Hello!
</table>

but as you've not got a tr, td etc in your field it may still not display it, you should try:

<table style="background-image: url('/static/assets/img/myimage.png') !important;background-position: 0 100% !important;background-repeat: repeat-x !;background-size: 40px 3px; display: block;">
  <tr>
    <td>
      <p>hello</p>
    </td>
  </tr>
</table>
