GradientFill.FillRect Property

Specifies the gradient fill direction.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native

Assembly: DevExpress.RichEdit.v22.2.Core.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.RichEdit.Core

Declaration

RectangleOffset FillRect { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description
RectangleOffset

An object that specifies offsets (in percentage) from the fill rectangle edges to the center shade rectangle.

Remarks

Use the FillRect property to specify a gradient direction. It depends on the gradient type applied to a shape (GradientFill.GradientType). The FillRect property defines the position of the center shade relative to the fill rectangle.

Example 1

In the example below, the center shade occupies the entire shape except for the topmost, leftmost, and rightmost 25% of the rectangle. The gradient fills the remaining area.

Rich_GradientFill_FillRect_Example

// Add a rectangle to the document.
Shape rectangle = document.Shapes.InsertShape(document.Range.Start, ShapeGeometryPreset.Rectangle, new RectangleF(300, 200, 500, 300));
// Fill the rectangle with a gradient.
rectangle.Fill.SetGradientFill(GradientType.Rectangle, Color.FromArgb(0xF6, 0xCD, 0x61), Color.FromArgb(0xEE, 0x40, 0x35));
// Specify the gradient direction.
rectangle.Fill.GradientFill.FillRect = new RectangleOffset(0.25f, 0.25f, 0.25f, 0f);

Example 2

This example creates a rectangle with a gradient direction that starts from the bottom right corner.

Rich_GradientFill_FillRect_From_Corner

// Add a rectangle to the document.
Shape rectangle = document.Shapes.InsertShape(document.Range.Start, ShapeGeometryPreset.Rectangle, new RectangleF(300, 200, 500, 300));
// Fill the rectangle with a gradient.
rectangle.Fill.SetGradientFill(GradientType.Rectangle, Color.FromArgb(0xF6, 0xCD, 0x61), Color.FromArgb(0xEE, 0x40, 0x35));
// Specify the following gradient direction: "From Bottom Right Corner".
rectangle.Fill.GradientFill.FillRect = new RectangleOffset(1f, 1f, 0f, 0f);

Example 3

The example below creates a circle with a radial gradient direction that starts from the center. The FillRect property defines a point in the center of the shape.

Rich_GradientFill_FillRect_From_Center

// Add a circle to the document.
Shape rectangle = document.Shapes.InsertShape(document.Range.Start, ShapeGeometryPreset.Oval, new RectangleF(300, 200, 500, 500));
// Apply a three-color gradient to the circle.
GradientStop stop1 = new GradientStop(0f, Color.FromArgb(0xFE, 0xD7, 0x66));
GradientStop stop2 = new GradientStop(0.5f, Color.FromArgb(0xFF, 0x33, 0x77));
GradientStop stop3 = new GradientStop(1f, Color.FromArgb(0x2A, 0x4D, 0x69));
rectangle.Fill.SetGradientFill(GradientType.Circle, new GradientStop[] { stop1, stop2, stop3 });
// Specify the following gradient direction: "From Center".
rectangle.Fill.GradientFill.FillRect = new RectangleOffset(0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f);
