public LinearGradientMode GetGradientMode()
Public Function GetGradientMode As LinearGradientMode


Type Description

A LinearGradientMode enumeration value giving the gradient's direction as specified by the appearance object's settings.


If the appearance object's AppearanceOptions.UseBackColor property is set to false and it has a parent, this method returns the gradient direction of the parent's background. Otherwise, the current appearance object's AppearanceObject.GradientMode property value is returned.

Note that the appearance object's AppearanceObject.ParentAppearance property is read only. The parent can only be specified when the appearance object is created.
