ShapeRectangleOffset Interface

Defines the offsets from the corresponding edges of the shape to which the gradient or picture fill is applied.

Namespace: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.Drawings

Assembly: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.v19.1.Core.dll


public interface ShapeRectangleOffset


An object exposing the ShapeRectangleOffset interface is used to specify the ShapeComplexFill.FillRect, ShapePictureFill.SourceRect and ShapeGradientFill.TileRect properties.


The following example demonstrates how to create a scatter chart with straight lines and markers and customize its appearance by applying the complex gradient to the chart background. Set the gradient fill by calling the ShapeOutlineFill.SetGradientFill method, and then specify the gradient direction From Center by utilizing the ShapeComplexFill.FillRect property.

Worksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets["chartScatter"];
workbook.Worksheets.ActiveWorksheet = worksheet;

// Create a chart and specify its location.
Chart chart = worksheet.Charts.Add(ChartType.ScatterLineMarkers, worksheet["C2:D52"]);
chart.TopLeftCell = worksheet.Cells["F2"];
chart.BottomRightCell = worksheet.Cells["L17"];

// Set the series line color.
chart.Series[0].Outline.SetSolidFill(Color.FromArgb(0xBC, 0xCF, 0x02));

// Specify the data markers.
Marker markerOptions = chart.Series[0].Marker;
markerOptions.Symbol = MarkerStyle.Diamond;
markerOptions.Size = 10;
markerOptions.Fill.SetSolidFill(Color.FromArgb(0xBC, 0xCF, 0x02));

// Set no fill for the plot area.

// Apply the gradient fill to the chart area.
chart.Fill.SetGradientFill(ShapeGradientType.Circle, Color.FromArgb(0xE3, 0x48, 0x03), Color.FromArgb(0x00, 0x32, 0x86));
ShapeGradientFill gradientFill = chart.Fill.GradientFill;
gradientFill.FillRect.Left = 0.5;
gradientFill.FillRect.Right = 0.5;
gradientFill.FillRect.Bottom = 0.5;
gradientFill.FillRect.Top = 0.5;

// Set the X-axis scale.
Axis axisX = chart.PrimaryAxes[0];
axisX.Scaling.AutoMax = false;
axisX.Scaling.AutoMin = false;
axisX.Scaling.Max = 60.0;
axisX.Scaling.Min = -60.0;
axisX.MajorGridlines.Visible = true;
axisX.Visible = false;

// Set the Y-axis scale.
Axis axisY = chart.PrimaryAxes[1];
axisY.Scaling.AutoMax = false;
axisY.Scaling.AutoMin = false;
axisY.Scaling.Max = 50.0;
axisY.Scaling.Min = -50.0;
axisY.MajorUnit = 10.0;
axisY.Visible = false;

// Hide the chart legend.
chart.Legend.Visible = false;
