Type Description
GradientFill

An object that stores gradient fill settings.

Call the Shape.Line.Fill.SetGradientFill method to apply a gradient of two or more colors to a line or a shape's border. The GradientFill property allows you to access and change the applied gradient:

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

Rich_ShapeLine_ComplexGradientFill

// Create a rectangle.
Shape rectangle = document.Shapes.InsertShape(document.Range.Start, ShapeGeometryPreset.Rectangle, new RectangleF(300, 200, 500, 300));
rectangle.Fill.SetNoFill();
// Format the rectangle's outline.
ShapeLine border = rectangle.Line;
// Apply a linear gradient to the outline.
border.Fill.SetGradientFill(GradientType.Linear, Color.FromArgb(0x1B, 0x98, 0xE0), Color.FromArgb(0xFF, 0x16, 0x54));
// Access gradient fill settings.
GradientFill gradientFill = border.Fill.GradientFill;
// Add another gradient stop.
gradientFill.GradientStops.Add(new GradientStop(0.5f, Color.FromArgb(0xF3, 0xFF, 0xBD)));
// Specify the gradient angle.
gradientFill.Angle = 30;
// Set the line width.
border.Thickness = 6;
