LinearGradientBrush

LinearGradientBrush class

Encapsulates a Brush with a linear gradient. This class cannot be inherited.

public sealed class LinearGradientBrush : LinearGradientBrushBase

Constructors

Name Description
LinearGradientBrush() Initializes a new instance of the LinearGradientBrush class with default parameters. The starting color is black, the ending color is white, the angle is 45 degrees and the rectangle is located in (0,0) with size (1,1).
LinearGradientBrush(Point, Point, Color, Color) Initializes a new instance of the LinearGradientBrush class with the specified points and colors.
LinearGradientBrush(PointF, PointF, Color, Color) Initializes a new instance of the LinearGradientBrush class with the specified points and colors.
LinearGradientBrush(Rectangle, Color, Color, float) Initializes a new instance of the LinearGradientBrush class based on a rectangle, starting and ending colors, and an orientation angle.
LinearGradientBrush(RectangleF, Color, Color, float) Initializes a new instance of the LinearGradientBrush class based on a rectangle, starting and ending colors, and an orientation angle.
LinearGradientBrush(Rectangle, Color, Color, float, bool) Initializes a new instance of the LinearGradientBrush class based on a rectangle, starting and ending colors, and an orientation angle.
LinearGradientBrush(RectangleF, Color, Color, float, bool) Initializes a new instance of the LinearGradientBrush class based on a rectangle, starting and ending colors, and an orientation angle.

Properties

Name Description
Angle { get; set; } Gets or sets the gradient angle.
Blend { get; set; } Gets or sets a Blend that specifies positions and factors that define a custom falloff for the gradient.
Disposed { get; } Gets a value indicating whether this instance is disposed.
EndColor { get; set; } Gets or sets the ending gradient color.
GammaCorrection { get; set; } Gets or sets a value indicating whether gamma correction is enabled for this LinearGradientBrushBase.
IsAngleScalable { get; set; } Gets or sets a value indicating whether Angle is changed during trasnformations with this LinearGradientBrushBase.
IsTransformChanged { get; } Gets a value indicating whether transformations were changed in some way. For example setting the transformation matrix or calling any of the methods altering the transformation matrix. The property is introduced for backward compatibility with GDI+.
Opacity { get; set; } Gets or sets the brush opacity. The value should be between 0 and 1. Value of 0 means that brush is fully visible, value of 1 means the brush is fully opaque.
Rectangle { get; set; } Gets or sets a rectangular region that defines the starting and ending points of the gradient.
StartColor { get; set; } Gets or sets the starting gradient color.
Transform { get; set; } Gets or sets a copy Matrix that defines a local geometric transform for this TransformBrush.
WrapMode { get; set; } Gets or sets a WrapMode enumeration that indicates the wrap mode for this TransformBrush.

Methods
