Property Value

Type Description

An object that stores gradient fill settings.


Call the Shape.Fill.SetGradientFill method to apply a gradient of two or more colors to a shape. 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.


// Create a rectangle.
Shape rectangle = document.Shapes.InsertShape(document.Range.Start, ShapeGeometryPreset.Rectangle, new RectangleF(300, 200, 500, 300));
// Apply a gradient to the rectangle.
rectangle.Fill.SetGradientFill(GradientType.Shape, Color.FromArgb(0xFE, 0xD7, 0x66), Color.FromArgb(0x2A, 0x4D, 0x69));
// Access gradient fill settings.
GradientFill gradientFill = rectangle.Fill.GradientFill;
// Add another gradient stop.
gradientFill.GradientStops.Add(new GradientStop(0.5f, Color.FromArgb(0xFF, 0x33, 0x77)));
