How to convert a CSS background property into foreground?


Recommended Posts

Assume I have a CSS background key similar to
.logo { background: url(/static/foobar/mylogo.jpg) 0px -no-repeat; }
Is there a way to convert this background property into a foreground image by Javascript?
All other configurations (margin, padding, background-position-x, background-position-,....) should remain untouched or converted accordingly.
Thank you

I think you could use getComputedStyle() to find out what background image has been applied and then generate an <img> tag. It's a bit complicated, especially if you want to keep everything exactly where it is. You'll have to pull out the values of background-size and background position and use them to set the size and position of the <img> tag. Repeating backgrounds would make things a lot more complicated.
