Use the Shape.Fill.SetNoFill method to remove a fill from a shape.

The example below shows how to use the SetNoFill method to create a transparent rectangle.

Rich_ShapeFill_NoFill

// Add a rectangle to a document.
Shape rectangle = document.Shapes.InsertShape(document.Range.Start, ShapeGeometryPreset.Rectangle, new RectangleF(300, 200, 500, 300));
// Remove a color from the rectangle.
rectangle.Fill.SetNoFill();

Solid Fill

Use the Shape.Fill.SetSolidFill method to apply a color to a shape.

Rich_ShapeFill_SolidFill

// Add a rectangle to a document.
Shape rectangle = document.Shapes.InsertShape(document.Range.Start, ShapeGeometryPreset.Rectangle, new RectangleF(300, 200, 500, 300));
// Fill the rectangle with color.
rectangle.Fill.SetSolidFill(Color.FromArgb(0xFF, 0xEE, 0xAD));

Gradient Fill

Use the Shape.Fill.SetGradientFill method to fill a shape with a gradient of two or more colors.

Rich_ShapeFill_GradientFill_Simple

// Add a rectangle to a document.
Shape rectangle = document.Shapes.InsertShape(document.Range.Start, ShapeGeometryPreset.Rectangle, new RectangleF(300, 200, 500, 300));
// Apply a two-color gradient to the rectangle.
rectangle.Fill.SetGradientFill(GradientType.Rectangle, Color.FromArgb(0xFF, 0x8B, 0x94), Color.FromArgb(0x4D, 0x64, 0x8D));

Picture Fill

Use the Shape.Fill.SetPictureFill method to fill a shape with a picture.

Rich_ShapeFill_PictureFill

// Create a rectangle.
Shape rectangle = document.Shapes.InsertShape(document.Range.Start, ShapeGeometryPreset.Rectangle, new RectangleF(300, 200, 500, 350));
// Use a picture to fill the rectangle.
rectangle.Fill.SetPictureFill(System.Drawing.Image.FromFile("PictureFill_Dog.png"));

Pattern Fill

Use the Shape.Fill.SetPatternFill method to fill a shape with a pattern.

Rich_ShapeFill_PatternFill

// Add a rectangle to a document.
Shape rectangle = document.Shapes.InsertShape(document.Range.Start, ShapeGeometryPreset.Rectangle, new RectangleF(300, 200, 500, 300));
// Apply a pattern to the rectangle.
rectangle.Fill.SetPatternFill(PatternFillType.SolidDiamond, Color.FromArgb(0x4D, 0x64, 0x8D), Color.FromArgb(0xFF, 0xEE, 0xAD));
