GradientStop Struct

Defines the color and position of a transition point in a gradient.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native

Assembly: DevExpress.RichEdit.v23.1.Core.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.RichEdit.Core


public struct GradientStop :


Pass the GradientStop instances to the following methods to apply a gradient to a shape or its border:

The example below shows how to apply a gradient of three colors to a rectangle.


// Add a rectangle to a document.
Shape rectangle = document.Shapes.InsertShape(document.Range.Start, ShapeGeometryPreset.Rectangle, new RectangleF(300, 200, 500, 300));
// Apply a gradient of three colors to the rectangle.
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.Shape, new GradientStop[] { stop1, stop2, stop3 });

Use the GradientFill.GradientStops property to access a GradientStopCollection object that stores existing gradient stops. The collection’s methods allow you to add and delete gradient stops.
