Empty Grid Background Image property

Official Content
This documentation is valid for:

Shows an image when the Grid has no data.

Example

We want to show a list of clients, so we apply the Work With object to the Client transaction and add an entry point in a Menu for Smart Devices object (GeneXus 16) pointing to the WorkWithDevicesClient.Client.List(). If there are clients in the database and we go to the WorkWithDevicesClients screen, the list will be shown; however, if we don't have any records the list will appear empty, and sometimes the user may think there is a problem.

In sum, this property allows the programmer to show an image instead of an empty space.
