Load Background...

Description: The File | Load Background... menu option creates a worksheet background using an existing image file. A worksheet needs to be active for this option to be enabled in the File menu. The following dialog box will appear:

You can navigate around the hard drive to find the desired image file.

Backgrounds are required to be located in the "backgrounds" folder inside the "classes" folder of a project (Please refer to Anatomy of a Project for details on the structure of the project folder). If you load a background that does not already exist in the backgrounds folder, the system will copy it there for you.

It is important to note that, while the AgentSheets application recognizes GIF, PICT, and PNG file types for background images, Ristretto-generated applets can only load GIF and JPEG files. If you intend to create a Java applet from your AgentSheets simulation, it is best to use a GIF or JPEG background image.
